Located near Chai-yi Junior High School and Yang-fu Temple, Sean's Bistro Cuisine and Beverage is not the easiest to find in the alley.
You can make a reservation. Parking is available as well.
This is the only restaurant here in a quiet alley. The front entrance is made of wood. The marble sign also has a wooden frame.
The sign reads "Flowing Fragrance from Eastern Miles" in Chinese (Dong Li Liu Fang). The restaurant is surrounded by residential houses, making it hard to identify at first glance.
There are many vintage houses renovated to become restaurants in Chai-yi; Sean's Bistro Cuisine and Beverage is no exception. There is abundant creativity in its appearance. You can see a small and elegant garden upon walking through the front entrance.
Once you are inside the restaurant, you can usually see two cats resting somewhere. The interior is reminiscent of the French country style. Aside from the individual tables, there is also a luxurious private room available for reservation.
The food is perhaps just as creative as the gardening that we first saw. There are steaks, pasta and even Eastern Cuisine. We ordered their signature Salmon Wellington and Blade Steak. Wellington dishes are typically meats wrapped in pastries before being baked.
The Wellington Salmon that we ordered has a tender salmon wrapped in edible pastries, creating a very crisp and juicy taste. The Blade Steak is juicy and delicious as well.
It's evident how much thought they put into creating such edible dishes in a very refined yet understated atmosphere.
The restaurant is located on No. 11 Yuan-fu Street, Lane No. 80, near Chai-yi Park.
