Bread in everything, nasty oils, fried potatoes and salad drowned in unfortunate dressing. The clientele here is old to very old and they seem to like the food. I have been several times with different friends and find the menu sadly lacking. A pretty old building kept nice and clean.It is easy to access for very old people. Its caught... More

Each time we dine here it's a great experience. Superb food beautifully served by pleasant, helpful staff. The prices are fairly high so it's suitable for a special occasion.

Excellent food served with similar high quality service. While the menu is not large it mor than adequately covers all tastes. I will definitely be returning for both that special night out or the relaxing weekend brunch. Highly recommended

Always fresh, and food cooked to perfection. Gary and David are great hosts and it's always a pleasure to go and have a nice meal whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This is one of my most favourite restaurants in Wellington, and why we visit it so often (8 or 9 times a year). Whether it is for dinner or weekend brunch, the food is always fabulous, the staff are friendly and highly efficient, and the atmosphere is just great. We've gotten to know Gary and David, the owners, quite well... More

We had the pleasure of dining here last week. Very tasteful décor,good use of mirrors, well chosen ambient background music and excellent service. A menu with gorgeous choices for everyone. After internal arguments with myself, I had the chicken liver pate - there is usually never enough toast when I have ordered this in other restaurants but in this case... More

It is approx three years since I last wrote a review on Taste although we still visit there 3 -4 times a year including our Company Christmas Dinner. The Owners Gary and David who both work front of house continually maintain high quality food and ambience that the rewstaurant is rarely not full every night of the week. It is... More

Taste is one of my favourite go-to restaurants in Wellington. We frequently go there for weekend brunch and occasionally for dinner mid-week. We have never been disappointed. Taste has a relaxed ambience with extremely friendly and capable front of house staff. The menu is not extensive, nor does it need to be. What is presented is a great selection of... More

I have eaten here several times - every time it has been really good. Taste is situated suburban Khandalla, but even saying that it's only about 10 minutes from central Wellington. A read of the menu would suggest "pub grub" that is - everything with chips and salad ... but it's actually much much better than that. I've had beautiful... More

Located in the main street of the suburb of Khandallah this would be off the beaten track for visitors to Wellington. However, its well worth the visit. Excellent food and great service at reasonable prices. The fact that it is BYO makes it additionally attractive. I have been a frequent customer over a number of years and the standard of... More
