【Xinyi District】La Farfalla – Afternoon tea buffet Carnivore 3.0

Visit date : 2023/11/19 15:00

This dining experience had two main purposes:

  • Winter gathering for the website team
  • Celebrating a friend’s birthday

We happened to come across the winter promotion at La Farfalla Italian Restaurant through their website, and considering the positive reviews online, we decided to give it a try today.

The regular price is 1080 TWD + 10%, but with the dining voucher, it was 1599 TWD for two people (roughly a 33% discount).

Dining experience

The restaurant this time is on the sixth floor. Once you enter the main door, simply take the elevator directly up.

There are two cool fish displays located on the sixth floor at the hotel check-in area and in the lobby bar. They look awesome and add a fun vibe!

⬆️Next to the windows, you can catch a glimpse of the ultra-luxurious residence – Tao Zhu Yin Yuan

Salad Section

Seems fairly standard, and since the afternoon tea time is limited, I didn’t grab any salads, haha.

But they do offer interesting choices like almonds, pumpkin seeds, and other nuts.

Meat Section

The most popular queue was definitely at the meat section, offering four types of meats – chicken, pork, beef, and lamb. These include:

  • Grilled Beer Chicken
  • Crispy Pork Belly
  • Oven-Roasted Premium US Beef Chuck Roll
  • Rosemary Garlic Roasted New Zealand Lamb Leg

Overall, the meat quality is good, and the portions are generous. There’s no risk of running out of food, which can sometimes be an issue at some all-you-can-eat places with slow replenishment.

Here should be the chuck roll beef and lamb (the last two slices in the photo).

However, after getting more servings, one time, there was more fat, approximately half a slice (but out of nearly 10 slices, only one had more fat).

Italian Deli Section

Not only pasta and risotto, but there’s also a vegetable dish made with spigarello kale, corn shoots, and more. It’s incredibly delicious!

Bread and Cheese Section

They offer four types of cheese, which is relatively uncommon (my friend who returned from the Netherlands says he’s had enough of it…)

Dessert and Fruit Section

Everyone highly recommends the almond desserts ❤️❤️❤️ (the ones on the top!)

Their bananas are incredibly large—had one before leaving, almost couldn’t finish it~

Which made me confused

I know it’s afternoon tea, but a ham and cheese sandwich… Are you kidding me!? (I confess, I grabbed a croissant first 😅)

⬇Lastly, let’s take a look at the little cake provided for the birthday celebrants this month

(I could only taste the chocolate… the birthday person insisted there was a hint of alcohol; I guess he might be starting the celebration early in the day!)

And some other photos

⬆️The Spanish baked eggs (the one on top) that you usually only find in taverns.


Overall, it’s decent; the highlighted meat dishes are of good quality. Additionally, there are some standout items in both the deli and dessert sections (the spigarello kale dish in the deli is quite good).

The ambiance is satisfying, living up to the elegance associated with the name. Whether it’s the scenery or the overall space arrangement, it’s impressive.

(Unfortunately, I missed taking photos of the soups and some of the cold dishes…)

On the downside, there isn’t a seafood selection available. If you have a craving for sashimi, you may need to consider other dining options. Although the variety may not be extensive, the overall experience is still refined.
