“Amazing dessert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The dinning area isn't big but alright.
Having lived in France for a while, I thought the food was just okay.
However, they make amazing French dessert, yum!
I was stuffed but still managed to eat the cakes.
So if you are planning on going there, don't forget to get the dessert.

Pasedena, both the restaraunt and the bakery, really fails in trying to deliver French cuisin and atmosphere. My biggest complaint is that it is a french bakery without fresh bread until mid afternoon. You can't buy bread here until about 2 or 3 in the afternoon. That makes it a Taiwanese bakery, not a French one.

“Very Romantic Restaurant With Magnificent Courses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Went to this restaurant with a friend on valentine's day just to check it out. I found out about this restaurant from a friend's daughter who were suppose to apply for internship as chief apprentice. Upon arriving, we were greeted by the group of waiters & waitresses. We were the first to get there for dinner. The restaurant has the ambiance of French decor. The waitresses were all very professional & neatly dressed. The layout is splendid and the wine list is extensive. We ordered a three course meal dinner and a bottle of red wine. The foods were beautifully executed and presented. Right around the corner from the outside, there is a bakery shop that also belong to Pasadena. Its quite famous in Kaohsiung city. When finishing our meal, we ordered a coffee & tea and sweets were given (see all photos). The attention to details at this restaurant is superb and exquisite. I have been to top restaurants in Paris, France in the past and I can attest that this restaurant, even though not in Paris, would momentarily give you a feeling that you were. Excellent place to take your date for a very romantic evening in Kaohsiung. Oh, I forgot to mention, there is a city waterway right across the street so after the dinner, you may have a very nice romantic stroll right there to finish off the evening.
