Service was good. Location was nice. Nice view. Food was expensive, which isn't a bad thing, but taste was terrible. We ordered three or four appetizers and several entrees and none were impressive. They weren't so bad that you couldn't eat them, but the conversation was, "we won't be coming back here again." I feel bad. We are a gay... More

When one writes a bad review "constructive criticism" is a good suggestion. Generalities lack credibility, and give the business no idea how to fix a problem. As our "Taste" (half plate) portions are under $139 pesos, including taxes, or about $9.50 USD before taxes, and most entrees are below $250, or under $17USD for an entrée before taxes, we do...

I had another great meal at Taste recently. The food that Cesar created was outstanding - the service that both Victor and Juan provided was amazing. My friend and I enjoyed many rounds cocktails and multiple courses of food. Sitting outside, under the stars, in the jungle - what a magical night it was. Thank you!

I stayed for y week at Casa Cupola and when the weather was not nice or I just was too lazy I always went to this restaurant... but why I did it? The restaurant is not big - may be even small compared to all the others close to the beach BUT may be this was the big advantage. The... More

Let's begin with first impressions. The restaurant is located inside a secluded inn (Casa Cupula) that weaves itself around a steep hill in the Zona Romantica part of town. As you enter from above, it feels as though you are being pulled into something truly special. More and more of the inn's upscale Mexican architecture and charm is unveiled with... More

We just finished a stay at Casa Cupula and took breakfast daily as well as two dinners at Taste. Breakfast was good and it was fun to watch the Iguanas sunning themselves in the trees. However, the highlight was dinner. At one meal I had literally the best salmon I have ever tasted. Everything was great and the service top... More

This restaurant is one of the three best restaurants in PV. Never disappoints, gorgeous setting, perfect for couples outside watching the sun go down. Take a taxi. They all know where it is. The tasting menu is just perfect!!!! My other favorites Hacienda des Angels (take a taxi) and the little french bistro... Guess what none are on the beach!... More

I first discovered Taste Restaurant when a close friend recommended that we try it. He had seen a write up about it and we decided to give it a try. We made reservations and then headed to the restaurant, it was not the easiest to find but well worth the couple of extra minutes we used to locate it. Once... More

Thank you for your kind words. Our Chef Cesar Barajas continues to express himself with creative food, presentation and sauces which delight the palate. He is formally trained and studied under our previous Chef Oscar Rito. Cesar grew up in a restaurant family, and is from Guadalajara. We are delighted to present such outstanding young talent. More

Deservedly voted one of the best new restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Located in the Casa Cupula hotel just outside of central Puerto Vallarta and just off the main road to Mismaloya. Watch out for the sign (and often a group of taxis) on the left had side as you leave PV (across from the Oxxo). Lovely location high in the... More

My wife found this place on TA and we dined there tonight and we're extremely surprised how good this place was, especially after spending the past week in PV and being continually disappointed with the food overall here in PV. Taste was fantastic - a little difficult to find and a bit hidden, but it was well worth it. We... More
