Visited recently for a cup of coffee with a glass of water. Coffee excellent but was not impressed with the pink lipstick left on my glass by a previous drinker! Please make sure you check your glasses before giving them out to customers. Not a pleasant experience! Hopefully this was a one-off - that's why I have rated you very... More

We visited this restaurant on Saturday 10th September to access its suitability for a larger group. The three of us enjoyed our meals and were impressed with the service sadly we discovered afterwards bookings for large groups are not accepted and we are very disappointed but the three of us will definitely return.

If you're looking for a modern, decent coffee shop with a good food menu, that feels a bit bigger this is the place for you. We had nice soup and fish and have previously enjoyed a good breakfast. Worth looking at the specials board. Popular, gets busy at lunchtime.

I popped into Taste again for a quick lunch with a colleague (who happens to be my wife). I ordered a minute steak (pepper sauce, said and chips), my wife a goats cheese tart with a salad. It was all most delicious, cooked perfectly. Even better, it was on the table in exactly 11 minutes from order. Ideal when we... More

Visited on a Saturday at lunch time. The menu is moderately priced but well worth the money. I had visited before for coffee and decided to go for lunch yesterday. The coffee was good, they had ample high chairs available, the staff were very polite and friendly and the food was incredible. We had a Cajun chicken salad, vegetarian platter... More

First time that we came the other day for lunch but we will definitely be back! I really recommend the halloumi burger in a brioche bun - it was so delicious and came with the most colourful dressed side salad. I also had a hot chocolate with cream which was really lovely - overall a very pleasant experience with great... More

Whilst driving through Dorchester looking for somewhere to stop for lunch we spotted this place. From the outside it looked like it was the place for us. We weren't wrong! The food was amazing, perfect options for lunch. We opted for some tapas dishes, fish goujons, home made humous, breads and olive oil and falafels. Not too expensive but very... More

We stopped off for lunch in Dorchester and thought Taste looked welcoming. The food exceeded all expectations and catered for all of us from a tasty pasta dish for our four year old to a great quality seafood platter and a vegetarian tart. Would highly recommend.

Went there for lunch today, we'd just arrived in Dorchester, the menu looked interesting, the clientele seemed happy, so we went in... seated immediately, ordered a couple of mixed platters and two 'tapas' starters. After about a 10 minute wait, it all came together (which wasn't quite my intention, but really didn't matter, and I hadn't made it clear). What... More
