We stayed in Nanwan for 5 nights and 4 of those nights were spent eating at Bossa Nova! You will not get tired because their menu offers a lot with flavors that you will crave. Claire Yu the owner and chef is fantastic in the kitchen and hospitable to guests. Her staff keeps everyone in check! Taste the flavors from Italy, Thailand, Malaysia whitout leaving Kenting. The place is very well decorated as it immediately puts you into that bossa nova vibe which is colorful, flambouyant and mysterious at the same time. A must try when in Kenting!

We stumbled accross this cute, eclectic little place as we happened to be staying next door. Having just come off a 4hour flight and 2 hour drive, we just wanted a quick and easy bite.
We ordered the Steamed Fish with lemongrass and the Thai Seafood soup. The Steamed fish was INCREDIBLE, and the flavours excellent, The Thai soup, pretty good (personally would have preferred more spice). We thought the prices appeared a little steep, but when the meals came out, the portions sizes more than made up for it (NT$ 1000 for 1 appetizer, 2 mains, 1 dessert, 2-3 drinks).
The staff were genuine, and friendly, and remembered us when we came back the next day!
The menu is interesting. It has everything from local Taiwanese soup, to Italian speciality (caprese, risotto) and then Thai, Indonesian, Sandwiches, Salads.
All the dishes we tried were excellent:Swordfish, Beef Rendang (my bf's favourite dish in the world! He was so happy to see it on the menu, in Kenting of all places!), Beetroot Salad, Caprese, Steamed Fish, Thai Soup, Choco-Caramel dessert.
To our surprise, the place was PACKED when we went back Sunday night for dinner, and it appears most people had reservations.

We have had a lunch in Bossa Nova Café on Wednesday May 8th and a diner on Friday 10th. We dis spend a great time ! The food is truly excellent, it gives you the perfect flavor of the regional cooking and the quantity is also very generous ! Especially the seafood plates, the steamed fish and the taiwanese soups are top value ! The service is really professional and the atmosphere is refined and cool ! The choice of beverages is also rich ! Certainly a prime regional restaurant for this lovely area, mixing sea and nature !

We order a pasta and curry shrimp and egg white seaweed soup. All were yummy. The portion is big and we order too much for two people. Very cozy environment

Last weekend I visited Kenting National Park in Southern Taiwan. Once again my friends and I ate at the superb Bossa Nova Cafe; we just can’t stop visiting this fabulous place! The food, service, and ambience were outstanding as usual. If you want excellent Asian and Western food, served by wonderful people, you can do no better than head out to Bossa Nova Cafe. The location is excellent as it is right by Nanwan beach, with a parking lot right across the road so no hassles for your vehicle, and the Wi-Fi is great.
