We are locals and have been eating at Taste quite regularly since the restaurant was opened. We always enjoy our evenings - the food is consistently excellent as is the service, and we love being able to take wines from our cellar. the owners are fabulous hosts!

Our favourite restaurant. They know what they are doing and do it superbly. They don't try to be too clever with menu, rather deliver consistently great food. Service and timing of courses among the best we have experienced.

It's local for my wife and I so we dine there around 2-3 times a year for special occassions. Love the atmosphere, food and hospitality. Never a poor experience.

Those that know us well know that we dine at Taste at least once a week...sometimes twice, often for dinner but always for weekend brunch. It's consistently great, for food and for service, and never fails to deliver! David and Gary go out of their way to make sure everything is just right...can't recommend highly enough.

My husband and I dine at Taste at least a couple of times a year, usually for a birthday or anniversary. The menu is consistently good and the service professional and friendly, but unobtrusive. One of our favourite wee spots.

I recently moved to this area and found it as we were driving by. It would have been quite difficult for the restaurant to cater for us as we have a 3 year old and a 4 month old however this was no trouble for the restaurant and we were treated incredibly well. The dishes were recognisable, familiar and cooked... More

One of those restaurants that you'd like to try everything on the menu. Fish, chicken or beef you name it! Desserts are phenomenal and you'd be a fool not to smash one down! You wont leave disappointed.

Went here for my daughter's 15th birthday. Lovely night! Great wine list. The girls enjoyed the food. Meat and fish always succulent. Nice ambience, and comfortably warm inside, which we appreciated the night we went as the weather was freezing. Will be returning!

This is a comfortable reliable place with varying standards of food. The scallops were beautifully cooked but we're swimming for their lives in a sea of curry sauce. The pork fillet was over cooked and dry in a fruit sauce but also with some more of the curry sauce lurking around the edge of the plate. The dessert of baked... More
