Dominique and Christoph! We have to say thank you! The kitchen rocked tonight! The lamb was one of the tastiest and best composed dinners I have ever had! Your restaurant has been my favorite since we have moved to Hasselt but tonight you just rocked! And thanks for taking such good care of my little princes! The kitchen tour, the... More

This was our second visit to Taratata. We knew what to expect. And again, the food and overall experience was superb. We chose the 5-dish menu. The combination of fish and meat was in a good balance. Every dish was prepared with eye for detail. Great combination of flavors and use of some "forgotten" (uncommon) vegetables. The portions are small... More

I'm not a food savant, so this is very personnal. The welcome and arrangement was really amazing in this restaurant. We were there at 18:35 with a reservation for 19:00 (saturday evening) and they did not make any problem out of this. (One tip maybe is to go in a bit early so you can choose your seating. Around 19:00... More

The hostess is very friendly, we started the meal with a tast explosion of egg plant and carrots, sour sweet, spicy, it was all there! The main course was perfect as well and the desert not to heavy and still very tasty! A great diner in a great setting

We took the 5 courses set menu. Appetizers ranged from very good (herring with yoghurt) to so so (something with sticky rice). Throughout the rest of the meal, the combination of some very well prepared ingredients and some less good prepared ingredients was a constant. For example, the "popped bread with filling of mascarpone and truffle" wasn't very tasty, but... More

the dishes in taratata are a feast for the eye and very tasteful. Beautifully 'dressed' on the plates. Original combinations. Ever tried a salad with popcorn? In taratata you can. If you like to taste, to be surprised and your eye wants a treat as well, taratata is the place to be. The service is good, very friendly and they... More

My mother and I had a lovely lunch at Taratata one year ago. The day we had dinner was a very warm day. We had a table next to the open window which gave us an outdoor feeling. There were some small tables outside, in front of the restaurant, but passers-by pass very closely which some people could find annoying.... More

The name promised a unique experience, and the food was indeed unique. The chef did achieve highlighting every ingredient individually not creating a big explosion but a never ending series of sensual fireworks exciting our sins. Whilst most of the vegetables as well as the meet and the fish were not exotic but somewhat normal at first view the composition... More
