The restaurant had a nice appetizer and dessert buffet. Food was tasty and presented well. The place had good ambience for a hotel restaurant. Service was average for Taipei, which is to say it was functional and polite but not attentive or trained for superior service.

The fist time I have a breakfast in Humble House is at 6 floor in this hotel. The breakfast is nice, but some shortcomings are found. For such a hotel with 5 stars, you need to make your coffee by yourself not by ordering. This is quite . different from other 5 stars hotels in taipei

La Farfalla specializes in providing various delectable appetizers, using very fresh and sweet scallops, shrimps, and mussels, and many vegetables that are less commonly used in Taiwan, such as chick peas, baby corns, zucchini, arugula, and artichoke. In addition to prepared salad and cold dishes, there is also a salad bar with refreshing components and sauces, a plate with five cheeses, and three kinds of mini-sandwiches. For those who like meats, there are tender roasted rib eye with red wine gravy and crispy roasted pork belly. At the corner of the hot dishes counter, you will find two stockpots of extremely authentic you-must-try Taiwanese clear stewed beef soup and braised beef soup. These four are rarely served in any other afternoon tea buffet. Pizza, pasta, and risotto are not bad but unimpressive. While four flavors of Häagen-Dazs are enjoyable, their handmade desserts are very eye-catching, delicately prepared with fine textures and balanced yet creative combinations of flavors. I also found rice pudding that arose in me what I have tried in Europe. Fresh fruits are available if you still have room for them.

Service are pretty good. Waiters and waitresses are friendly, they called me soon after I made a reservation using a third-party booking service called EZTABLE (good for discount if you do not have other credit cards that allow better price). Customers who would like to dine together can make multiple reservations for each member who wants to pay separately as long as you leave a note to notify the restaurant whom you want to sit together. The distances between tables are roomier than usually seen in other restaurant, so people would not feel crowded even if there is nearly full. In my case, they arranged us two to be seated at a table for four because they really wanted us to feel comfortable with their already spacious seat, and this unexpected upgrade is more available on weekdays.

Overall, the space is quiet and commodious, and the foods are comforting and enjoyable. La Farfalla afternoon tea worth a return visit.
