Went to Willy's with mates and its pretty average. Nothing special on the menu food was ok and prices reasonable. Its no longer the place it used to be.

There are plenty of bars that serve western-style food in Tainan, ALL of them are better than Willy's. Willy's used to provide OK food (but not good) and a lot of bar games. Those games were the only reason to go, and now they are gone . Go to Tin Pan, go to the Artful Dodger, go to MR No... More

The best part of the bar is the games. Pool, darts and table football. It offers something different to a night out. It's shut on Sunday, which is a pain, and the food isn't great (not bad but still) .

I heard about this place and decided to check this place out. The food is just bad... I mean if I had a couple beers then I wouldn't really care what I eat. The place was pretty small and even as a bar it doesn't feel like a place I would go hangout. Price wise it was ok.

I was apperently the only customer. There were 3 waitresses who seems to have more interest in each other then in the customers. One was brushing her hair behind the bar between the servings which is just disgusting. The food served was not good. The fishsoup was a shredded mix of all undefined topped with croutons I needed to chew... More

We went on a suggestion of a co-worker. She said one of her old teachers took over the place. She said he was a good cook. I had a cheesy chicken that was great and my husband had the steak. His came with all the trimmings: soup, salad, as well as sides potatoes and veggies. Although it is owned and... More

Friendly staff, good food and pretty much exactly like a pub you would find in England. This is a popular place with the local expat community. It is also kid friendly.

As a local, Willy's is the place I go when I want delicious, high quality western food and a cold beer. The staff are friendly and the owners are wonderful. Thursday night is Quiz Night and its a great time. The prices are much higher than local fare but perfectly reasonable for the quality and portions. Usually western food in... More

If you are looking for some food other than Asian, and like the feel of a British Pub, then this is the place to go. Great atmosphere, good food and very friendly staff. Nice place to hang out just to spend some down time or watch a game on the big screen.
