Good pub meal

Good pub meal, serving are a good size and food has good flavour. They have a big variety so everyone will find something to eat. Prices are a little on the expensive side for a pub meal but overall not to bad.

I recently ate here with a friend on a whim and I was blown away by how good the food was and the service was really good too. I had the lamb shank and the meat fell off the bone, the sauce was delicious and the mash was so good.

This restaurant was outstanding in every way possible. The service was fantastic and the food was a 10/10. The duck was the winner of the night with the lamb shanks a very close second. Don't hesitate to visit this beautiful town and this amazing restaurant.

We had a lovely meal at Taste. The service was homely and genuine. Thanks very much for the lovely compliment you gave our girls, it is very appreciated. The rissoto was very nice, the steak also and duck spring rolls for entree were delicious too. Our favourite mid week place to go with our family in Sawtell.

We decided to visit this restaurant based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were staying in a resort at Coffs Harbour, a 20 min drive away. We had the tasting appetiser menu comprising cauliflower soup, grilled salmon, risotto and cheese and grilled scallops. The tasting portions were delicately done and each little dish resting on a bed of... More

The food, beverage and service at Taste is brilliant. Relaxed and efficient; it's just a great place to dine. The menu is diverse and very appealing. Also, don't miss out on the Sunday lunch take home soup sales either, the chowder they have going at the moment is superb!

I have not been a fan of duck before having it recommended at Taste. It is one of their signature dishes and it lived up to the promise. Since our first taste (haha) of the duck we have come back multiple times. If you have never had it, make the trip to Taste at Sawtell and be surprised
