Also often come (came) with a vegan but now nothing for him so he has gone elsewhere and I am now joining him as it's... More

Me and my partner often go here for lunch and it is always really good food and reasonably priced! Constantly busy but never experienced a long wait on food

Lovely lunch with my nan today! Excellent food, excellent service & excellent value for money. We both had the carbonara which had loads of bacon in and garlic bread. Lovely size portion and it beat us both!!! Very clean place with waitresses very friendly & helpful. Will defiantly be returning again soon.

Just been to a private party at Taste. It was an amazing tapas meal. Great staff giving brilliant service. Would recommend it to any one - either attend one of their themed evenings or for a private party it is a great venue. As a place to while away some time during the day it is great for coffee, cakes,... More

We are regular visitors to Taste for breakfast on Wednesdays (market day in Dorchester). We recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg on brown toast. The cafe is clean and bright and the staff are efficient and friendly. The food is excellent and the prices are fair. We have introduced friends to Taste and we took our Australian grandchildren there... More
