Tasty food

Lovely place to eat not in the heart of St Agnes but within walking distance. Evenings you will need to book a table as it is very popular and good value for money.

Found this restaurant by accident but so glad we did. It's small but perfectly formed, with a reasonably priced non-pretentious menu and excellent service. We only had lunch here but the food was delicious and we would highly recommend it.

Delightful decor and superb food. Great service with plenty of smiles. Bread and olives while we chose followed by fantastically well cooked and presented starters and mains. All at very reasonable prices. We will definitely return!

Like most Cornish restaurants, Taste is not very large and therefore has a relatively small number of places, but it pays to book and get in. We went to lunch yesterday as a family group with a toddler and a baby, and enjoyed a relaxed and delicious time. From the initial greeting until we left all 5 of us loved... More

St Agnes is a charming north coast village with a surprise gem of a restaurant. We arrived dripping wet from the rain and were greeted as if we were old and intimate friends. Small but cozy, we had a delicious meal--later we agreed it was the best of several great meals we had had in north coast towns. Great starters... More

"The best starter ever , Dad" was what my 13 year old son told me about his mussels and prawns! This restaurant can only seat 25 so make sure you book early. A lovely clean and vibrant atmosphere with great seafood and service.

Visited several times during a two week stay in St Agnes, Excellent food, service and coffee. The place is well decorated including local art on the walls. By far the best place to eat and drink coffee in the area.

This small restaurant served very good food and the service was excellent. We tried the fish dishes which were all very good. The prices weren't cheap, but this was reflected in the quality of the food.
