Wonderful meal with nice service

We caught up with a couple of family members in Keswick and they had eaten at A Different Taste the night before and liked it so much that they booked a table for the 4 of us to eat there the following night. We weren't disappointed. We really enjoyed our meal, including a shared starter and... read more

As said buy a previous reviewer, the place is shut. On looking through the window it is like the Mary Celeste as the tables are still set. So sad -as this was a regular dining place on our Keswick visits. A sign in the window states the Restaurant is "Under offer" Here is hoping it can be restored to it's... More

This was always a must go to restaurant in Keswick. It's up for sale and the owners have shut up shop pending the sale. No signs letting you know this so when you've spent a day on the fells and are looking forward to a fab meal, you couldn't be more disappointed.

Food good but vegetables set round plate which looks rather childlike. Very quiet while Casa Bella next door was jumping and had a better atmosphere

After finishing our main courses we couldn't understand why the restaurant was almost empty. Freshly cooked food (we could hear it sizzling in the kitchen) and tasty home cooked puddings convinced us that we should have come here at the beginning of the week and not the end so that we could have made more than one visit. Looking forward... More

My husband and I ate here on Saturday 25th October 2014. Food was lovely and fresh, and disagree with previous review that it was frozen ready made meals. I had the vegetarian option, my husband the scampi. I had the poached pear for dessert which I would highly recommend. Yes the desserts are a little pricey but mine was lovely... More

Went on a very busy Saturday evening, hadn't booked and got the last table. We had starters and main courses and all the food was excellent; the staff/chef managing to modify food for my diabetes diet, with no fuss, and unlike lots of places they got it right too. Everything we ate was fresh, tasty and, as the restaurant advocates,... More

We were ravenous,just passing perchance and the menu was appealing-so in we went.Waitress was welcoming&friendly,and we could pick our own table as it was early evening.We both went for garlic bread for starters to calm the hunger pangs,as we knew it'd be quick,and it was.However it was only half a toasted ciabatta roll each-but in all fairness it wasn't expensive&you...

We called in for dinner and were served by two bright youngsters so no problem there. However, I ordered smoked cod and was served plaice. Now I actually like plaice so after I'd explained that it wasn't what I ordered, I agreed to keep it. No sign of the owner/chef to discuss/apologise. Not surprising it always seemed to empty!
