The price does not justify what you get at Wendel's. The
portions are good, but the food itself was just not that tasty. The bakery attached to the restaurant was nice, and had some pretty good baked goods, but the restaurant itself was just not worth the price. I it were cheaper, than I. Would give Wendel's four stars, but the price really ruined it for us.

Went to Wendel's for dinner on Valentine's Day at their newish bistro at Neihu - it was great. The place had 2 levels so seating was not a problem however, when we asked to seat on the 1st level (there were tables at that time) and mentioned we were planning to stay for only about 30 to 45 mins, they refused because of prior reservations. Would have thought flexibility could have been exercised given there were empty tables even when we left. Seating on the 2nd level means less ambience.

On the food, they were tasty. We did not order the Valentine's Day set menu becuase there was nothing uniquely German about the offering - it was steak and prawns. We had the pork knuckle and the 1/2 grilled free range chicken from the main course a la carte instead. The chicken was rather juicy and not too dry. The accompanying fries were delicious. One negative was that for the pork knuckle, the presentation was average - they sliced the pork knuckle into several pieces (rather than serving it in one single piece) such that it did not look like pork knuckle from a distance. Well, at least the German beer did not fail to please.

On the whole, good eye-opening experience. Great food with average service. The array of desserts looked fantastic too although we did not have time nor room the tummy to try them.

They have a great Octoberfest party with live entertainment and German food. This is a must if you are in Taipei during October.

Restaurant is in Tienmu near Zhishan MRT stop. There was a decent selection of German food that tasted good. Had some German beer as well, though not much selection. It was expensive but not too overpriced. Service was fairly poor like most places in Taipei. Went for Oktoberfest and they had German music and entertainers which made the visit well worth. There is outdoor seating but only views of the indoor part of the restaurant.
