We shared the Entree Tasting Plate of Dukka crusted Mahi Mahi, Aranchini balls, Seared scallops and Tiger Prawns, all with an accompanying variety of condiments such as... More

I was visiting fro the UK some good friends who live in Sawtell, we went to this restaurant on my first evening, the staff where very attentive and friendly, food was out of this world. I had the steak and it was so, so good and cooked to perfection. Would definitely go back again.

This is a quality restaurant up the quiet end of the main street in Sawtell. The food is traditional with a modern and innovative interpretation and they can vary dishes to suit your needs (eg food allergies). Most importantly, they have a great wine list and will allow BYO wine (up to 2 bottles per table). The service is very... More

OMG! Yes the duck spring rolls are to die for amongst all other meals. The chef and his lovely wife are amazing and we always love going back there. They remember who we are, what wine we had and are always happy to chat. The other plus for this restaurant is the weekend learn to make a dessert even though... More

We have visited Taste a couple of times in the last few months, and have enjoyed an exceptional meal every time. A great menu with fresh local produce, cooked to perfection. Looking forward to our next visit!

My wife and I have been too all the eateries in Sawtell, and they have all been good enough for return visits, but for a "special" meal we usually return to Taste. Can't fault the service or quality of food.

A group of us went to Taste for their New Years Eve dinner and had a great night and start to 2015. Natalie and Louise gave us great service on the floor and Bevan cooked up an excellent menu. As always the service is top class and the choice of wines with the food would have been excellent but we... More
