“Have a beer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I always try and hit Wendel's while I'm in Taipei. The food is great, the beer is excellent, and the pastries are awesome. It has a beer garden and it is fun to be able to eat outside. It's just a good place to eat and have a beer.

“Good food, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Had the salad buffet at lunch. There's a wide variety of different types of salads, and as the plates are emptied by customers, the kitchen staff bring out new salads for consumption. Soup. Cold meats, including smoked salmon. The chicken was fantastic - subtle middle eastern flavours. Several desserts to choose from. Very reasonable price. Buffet only Monday to Friday. Very busy, mostly with locals. Good quality food.

“Neihu Branch - Nice Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had visited this Neihu branch of Wendel's before for breakfast but got there too late. (Note: they only serve breakfast till 1pm) We saw the dishes on the menu and thought they were best for dinner so... this time we returned for our dinner. I ordered the salmon dill pasta, which was fresh, well seasoned, and just simply delicious. My partner ordered the beef fillet. We made sure we asked the staff if the accompanying pesto sauce had nuts in, as he has an allergy. The staff were able to tell us straight away that it did indeed have pinenuts in it, so we were able to avoid it and an allergic reaction. The fillet was perfectly cooked to order, and the peppercorn sauce that came with it was nice. We are visiting Taipei from the Netherlands, so can also recommend the authenticity of the flavours. The rosemary potatoes served with the beef fillet tasted like we were eating in Germany. This is one of the only restaurants in Asia I've been to WITHOUT service charge - this is because you get your cutlery, and water yourself (which I prefer as you don't have someone looming over you constantly, or worse: having to wait for an inattentive waiter to fill your cup...) and you put your used plates at the cleaning station yourself. I prefer it! I recommend people give this one a try and I will certainly be back to try out some of the other dishes on the menu. Hopefully breakfast.

“Oktoberfest in Taipei”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

what a great show with German band, better than in Munich. They normally have genuine German beers but this time oddly only Weissbier was available... and the pretzels did not have salt. House was half full but tiny local waitresses suffered bringing pints to the table. some practice needed :)

“Good place for bread, lunch, but 'ok' for afternoon tea.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Been to this particular branch twice, once for lunch(June 2012) and once for afternoon tea (afternoon tea). Really enjoyed the lunch with the cheeses, kinds of bread and European fare. The second time was for afternoon tea. This was above average, a little pricey, but here is the catch, my son accidentally knocked over his Mango milkshake and broke the glass. The tablecloth was change, he was given another milkshake and they refused payment for the glass. My daughter got up to go and caught her dress on the chair which, in turn, went flying. :)

We bought the sour dough bread, really good.
