Can I say what a wonderful staff and then talk about the meals : all I can say is fantastic ! The view and decorated atmosphere is top dog. I can truly say "Taste" transports you to a wonderful world of delicious food and world.

We stayed at Casa Cupula and enjoyed Taste every day for breakfast and also for a couple of dinners. All our breakfasts were delicious (I miss having chilaquiles) and I loved the fresh squeezed OJ. Our first dinner was great - we both enjoyed our meals tremendously. The second dinner was also good, but I wasn't a huge fan of... More

Just got back from a lovely night at Taste. There is not much to say other than the food is great, the ambiance is fantastic and the staff is wonderful. We got there around 6:15 and we were the first guests. We got a nice table to watch the sunset. We started with margaritas and then ordered a bottle of... More

The name of the restaurant is well chosen because all the food is consistently rich in flavour. The menu selections delight with innovative, extravagant combinations and nowhere is one disappointed as you hum your way through mouthwatering dish after dish. Whoever designed the wonderful food though is not always well served by the physical presentation. In place that aspires to... More

A little south of old town, it is best to take a taxi although we walked there from old town and taxied back. The food was great. We appreciated that you can get small plates if you didn't want huge portions. It has a romantic quiet setting When we were finished dinner we were about to leave and he waiter... More

We had the tasting menu of three tasting portions and all were nicely presented and perfectly prepared. I was pleasantly surprised by the portion sizes, which seemed a bit more than 'tasting' but certainly in-line with the pricing. The chef's style has many different influences with many spicy spanish-style dishes. The menu can be a bit confusing, but the staff... More

Our recent dinner at Taste was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is casual, and there is both indoor and outdoor seating available. We felt that this restaurant scored well in every category: ambiance, service, menu creativity and food quality. The restaurant is attached to a hotel, and is built on the side of a hill. The decorating and landscaping give... More

Taste is a wonderful place to kickstart your Sunday. Their brunch, running from 10-2., features an ample selection of fruit, cheese, pastries, eggs, waffles, tamales, bacon, sausage and so much more. The mimosas are good, and the Mexican "green juice" tastes a whole lot better than it looks. The brunch is priced right, and service is friendly. And the view... More

The view from the terrace remains fantastic. Tables are comfortably space. The music is familiar, romantic, hip and danceable, played at a volume that allows easy conversation. The gifted chef, Oscar Rito, is no longer at Taste but he's made certain that his recipes are continuing "as written". The menu is varied, creative, unexpected. The wait staff is knowledgeable, attentive,... More
