We did not have a reservation as it was a last minute decision in the middle of the week but were welcomed like long lost friends. Celebrating our anniversary it was a lovely last minute decision as this is the restaurant a close friend chose... More

Not an extensive menu but great food and excellent service. We both and the Crispy Duck and were not disappointed. Generous portions and very tasty. We were extremely well looked after by our knowledgeable waitress. The whole restaurant is spotlessly clean and tidy. A great dining experience.

I really have only one Sawtell restaurant I can compare with Taste, and that is Fig, just over the rode. On my first visit, Taste suffered by comparison with Fig. My family members and I went to Taste when we were unable to get a table at Fig, on the strength of past Tripadvisor reviews that put it ahead of...

Sawtell is a relatively out of the way seaside village that has a high proportion of very good restaurants. Taste is certainly one of the better class of restaurants for this area. The menu is not very extensive but it does not have a large number of tables so this is expected. Service is very good (as you would again... More

Sawtell has a number of fine dining restaurants but Taste continues to outshine the rest. Previous reviews describe the meals and service which are excellent but I also want to complement the owners who remember their customers needs and likes. BYO is at $12 per bottle but a good deal with a great meal. We will return again and again!!

We have dined at this small restaurant several times over the years and not been disappointed. Whilst menu is limited there is a good variety of dishes and BYO is an added advantage. Also restaurant is warm in winter which is a definite plus. Do yourself a favour when in the Coffs Harbour area, journey to Sawtell and go to... More

Excellent food. We are regular fine-diners having enjoyed some of the best restaurants around the country and this was an unexpected surprise. Definitely food to rival the best. The atmosphere was warm and unpretentious.

Everything we ate was divine! Crusty bread starter and homemade dips alone would draw me back. But highlight for sure was the crispy skinned duck with plum and orange sauce with bok choy and a rosti. The duck fell off the bone with super crispy, and tasty, skin and a sauce to die for. Wanted to lick the plate! Yum!... More
