Lunch at C' est Bon (Grand View Resort Beitou's French Restaurant)

Itinerary > Grand View Resort Beitou / Hot Springs / Lunch
C' est Bon

After the enjoyable and relaxing hot springs, we got hungry and decided to lunch at Grand View Resort Beitou's French restaurant, C' est Bon. Upon entering, we were greeted warmly and were seated next to the window, facing the mountains and greenery. The semi-open kitchen was also in view, allowing the visual enjoyment of seeing the chef prepare the food.

DramaQueen was planning to eat noodles (ramen) at a famous stall in Xinbeitou so she opted for the Light Food Set which cost NT$680+10%, while I went for the Lunch Set which cost NT$980+10%. There was complimentary bread (as with all French meals and the folded napkins in the shape of a suit were just adorable!

    The total bill come to NT$1660, which I think was reasonable (unless you are on a really tight budget). Service was prompt and efficient, and the waiters/waitresses politely asked each time to clear the plates from the table when each dish was done. When it came to payment time, the waiter returned with the change presented tastefully in an envelope together with the bill.
