This place is a hidden gem - find it and go there!! The pizza is excellent, the service is perfect but the hole environment is amazing - especially on Saturdays when there is live music. Highly recommend for a drink, pizza or just hanging out

The pizza here is much better than most pizzas in Taiwan. The atmosphere is nice as it its located next to the ocean at a great swim/surf beach. Overall I really liked this place.

Great freshly made pizza made before your eyes to accompany a cold beer. Sit back, relax and listen to great live music at this outdoor/indoor restaurant. The Waiao train station is right here and the surf is just across the road.
