Fine food, fair prices

We have lived in the area for years and driven by Tastebuds numerous times without noticing it. Luckily a friend told us about it, as this will be the first of many visits. The building has housed a variety of retail stores, and the signage should be improved for better visibility. We were seated... read more

Great cozy homelike restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. I met up with a friend for Sunday brunch. The food was very good, the staff friendly and they did not rush you out allowing my friend and I to talk over a cup of coffee. Because it is small I definitely would recommend making a reservation.

We decided to try this local restaurant and were extremely pleased. It has a fine atmosphere and Mary our waitress was delightful. We are both seniors and opted to split our meal.... it was handled with not a hitch. Appetizer of scallops wrapped in bacon and pineapple chunks with a brown sugar glaze. Superb.... scallops fresh, pineapple fresh and bacon... More

My wife and I ate at Tastebuds last night to avoid the Mother's Day rush. This small, family-run restaurant in Mattapoisett Village was excellent! The atmosphere was casual and friendly, and our server, Tricia - who teaches special needs children by day - was friendly, personable, and efficient. My wife had a hard time deciding between several great-sounding seafood options... More

We met another couple and went to dinner here on their recommendation. We had reservations for our party of four and were quickly seated in the rather small dinning area. The meals were very good and the service excellent, however as we were having conversation and enjoying after dinner drinks we felt quite rushed as they wanted our table to... More

Tastebuds is the best restaurant in Mattapoisett if you are looking for fine dining. Plan ahead as the restaurant is small and you will usually need reservations. The only negative is that it can be a little loud since the tables are so close together.

I could not have been more impressed by the mouthwatering food cooked by corey zacharri. The steak melted in your mouth and the flavors were impeccable. Make a reservation though, it is not large capacity.

My wife and I decided to lunch at Tastebuds, based on a recommendation from an acquaintance. We are so glad we followed his advice. We went there on a Saturday 11/15/2914, around 12:30pm. The decor is modern and comfortable. Not a lot of tables, maybe ten or so. Very clean. They're may have been two or three occupied tables when... More
