Dining at Palais de Chine is an exquisite experience. The highly regarded three Michelin-starred Le Palais excels in Cantonese cuisine; La Rotisserie nods to the hotel’s Western influences with charbroiled steak and fine wines; and Le Thé celebrates the simple pleasure of afternoon tea.
Le Palais – Helmed by Chef Chan Wai-Keung, a celebrity of the capital’s dining scene, the elegant Le Palais serves some of the finest Cantonese cuisine in Taipei. The generous menu includes Palais de Chine steamed king prawn dumplings, wok-fried pork kidney, jellyfish with black vinegar, and fish maw soup with scallop muscle.
La Rotisserie – For a more informal meal, dine on fresh seafood and charbroiled steak in the Western dining room, La Rotisserie, which has an open kitchen so you can watch talented chefs prepare your mouthwatering entrée.
Le Thé – A relaxed salle à manger with Louis XIV rattan chairs and bar, Le Thé is the perfect spot to enjoy refined afternoon tea and small bites. Stay for lunch or return in the evening for the à la carte menu, which serves Western and Asian favorites like spicy laksa, prime rib-eye, and seafood pasta. Please note that Le Thé will be closed for renovations from March 1–May 10, 2020.
As a museum hotel, Palais de Chine is home to a wide range of original artifacts and ancient objects, including a painted pottery horse, ancient tapestry, and statues of the Greek goddesses of the seasons, the Horae — explore all of this and more at your leisure. Elsewhere, work out in palatial surroundings at Vite Gym, with its incredible view across Taipei’s skyline, before taking a dip in the Bali-inspired outdoor urban pool. If you’re staying in an executive room, visit the quiet reading room or enjoy a drink in the art-filled Le Salon, the VIP lounge.
Beyond the hotel, continue your exploration of ancient and modern themes with a visit to the National Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall or the Museum of Contemporary Art. For shopping, head to the trendy Q Square Mall, while for local delicacies, the Ningxia Night Market is highly recommended. Look out for YouBike stations — they’re a great way to get around Taipei to see its many sights.
