Excellent high end French restaurant with knowledgeable staff and delicious food. Service was excellent. The setting is small and cozy, great for a date. Smart casual dress code.

We had a great time. The food was very good. The service was faultless .. attentive without being intrusive. Very husband and wife team. You just want them to do well.

Ephernite is my favourite restaurant in Taipei and one I would definitely recommend. While there are a number of high-end Michelin star restaurants in Taipei, I think this is better and would deserve a star. We have tried Raw, Mume and Gen Creative and for...More

Chef Vanessa's cuisine is very delicate, feminine and refined. The presentations are truly artistic and the food has subtle nuances of light flavors. Some may be turned off by the bookings polices but it was well worth the visit. A amuse bouche of foie gras...More
