This little restaurant was recommended by a friend and I am delighted to have tried it. “Taste” is an unpretentious little place on the right side of the road going into St Agnes. The restful décor is pale grey and light blue while the room is light and airy and the chairs quite comfy enough for a leisurely lunch. I... More

We popped in on the off chance one Sunday lunchtime having noticed reviews on TripAdvisor. It's small, nicely decorated, so it was perhaps lucky we turned up early without a reservation. I'm not sure if there is a specific Children's Menu on other days, but there was a lovely selection of Sunday roast and other dishes. We didn't have starters,... More

Taste is an absolutely first rate restaurant, offering an imaginative menu of well-cooked and beautifully presented food. Service is efficient, unfussy and unobtrusive, whilst the decor is tastefully low-key, with local paintings for sale on the walls. My wife took me here for a big birthday and neither of us could have been happier; highly recommended.

The atmosphere is cosy, the service friendly and attentive and the standard of cooking is very high. We both tried the lamb, perfectly cooked and stylishly presented on the plate. If you get the chance to try 'Taste' do not hesitate. Many... More

We happened to walk past taste on our trip to St Agnes and popped in on the off chance of getting a table, the very lovely staff informed us that yes we could but we could only have it for an hour as a booking was due in at 8pm. We usually just have a main each so that was... More

We chose this restaurant for our last dinner after a week's holiday in Cornwall. We definitely saved the best for last. Fantastic food, well presented in an intimate setting. Friendly and efficient staff who were readily able to tell you about the menu. I'd highly recommend the lobster.

This was our first visit and we will definitely be back soon, great service, lovely food. My husband had the lamb which he throughly enjoyed and my fish cakes were yummy. The presentation was good and our desserts were delicious too. Recommended
