“Trend Central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Taste has become a pay-day mecca for my colleague and I on our day off. The staff are very friendly people, the food is good and the prices are average for South William Street. It has a good mix of people from the uber trendy South William Street set, old Dutch couples taking a sight-seeing break to over worked retail managers chain smoking profusely. It's a hard spot to get a coveted outside table but an excellent place to people watch if you do. The menu is not large, mostly fancy versions of sandwiches, burgers, pastas and antipasti offerings but limited choice is sometimes a nice thing and I think they have a decent mix that is suitable for them.

“Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and a delicious chicken salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

it was really one of the best places to share a bite with a friend - cosy, pleasant, warm people and very easy-going but respectful staff. Food was delicious, tasteful and a very good selection of wines to go with your meal!
And the coffee and desserts list - not to miss!

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is my second time eating in Taste in Dublin and it again exceeded my expectations. Came here with some work colleagues and we had a lovely meal. I had the steak sandwich on fresh ciabatta bread on both occasions. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to go for a relaxed and inexpensive meal. Very reasonable prices Service was great and very friendly and they brought us a bottle of water to our table with a mint leaf inside which I thought was a lovely touch. Great wine list. Lovely outdoor seating areas and the staff are very conscious and considerate if it starts to rain or get too windy they pull over a cover and turn the heat on so as it does not ruin your meal. Great playlist of music also been played. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to go for a relaxed and inexpensive meal.

“Excellent service and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

On Sunday enjoying the glorious sunshine we visited Taste, the outside terrace was packed but we nabbed a table on the laneway beside that they had brought out from inside. Bread and dips for starter, delish, could do with maybe one more slice of bread...mains were a burger and the chicken and chorizo pasta, both very tasty although I expected chunks of chorizo not little slivers. But what made Taste amazing for us was the service, the girl (i think she was maybe Italian?!) serving our table was excellent. So well taken care of and also great value for money! Will be back and highly recommend for Al fresco eats or just a drink on a sunny day!!
