For entree we had the share plate which was a delicious combination of sample size entrees. Mains we had the special board Barramundi and the Steak. This meal was to die for and was worth every cent. Although we had no room for sweets, we shared a creme brûlée and it was the best we have ever had. We would... More

We enjoyed a special meal at Taste. Although they had run out of particular desserts a few in our party wanted to order and had limited options for friends with food allergies, the food we were served was delicious. I would certainly return.

We ate here again when next in town a couple of years later. We liked it last time with a small reservation but this time we loved it. The husband and wife team really do a good job and the food is delicious. I had a duck dish and my husband had the salmon with prawn infused potato and loved... More

Menu just changed and pate is back on...it's the most divine pate I've ever tasted...so much I order some for Christmas every year...the duck as a main course is so mouthwatering it's heaven and the rose they serve is chilled to perfection..the owners are welcoming and genuine..definitely a place to go

I feel a little odd writing a review about Taste because it is one (the best) of our regular haunts. The food is always spectacular. Last night, our party had the pork belly and crab croquette entree, and the pork rib fillet and Bowen Bay Barramundi. For dessert, the Boysenberry Creme Brulee, the Orange Ice Cream with Chocolate Melt and... More

I had dinner here on business. The menu was amasing and dishes reasonably priced - as were the wines. I will definitely dine here on my next visit to Sawtwell.

Had dinner here and enjoyed the food very much. Service was good too. Order was mixed up re sides and they were made complimentary which is good form. The eye fillet really is nice and I recommend it. But someone needs to stand back and look at the starkness of the restaurant and add some interest. Also some cloth tablecloths... More

Didn't have a booking and decided to try Taste for a change as usually go to other restaurants in Sawtell. What a delight. The food was delicious Duck Spring Rolls and the Barramundi special were both divine. The wine was superb and the service was friendly and warm. Look forward to returning.

After a movie we headed to Taste for dinner which was a wonderful decision. The menu was interesting and varied and the four of us had different meals of which we were all very happy with. Lovely desserts, great service, nice wine set off an excellent evening. We will definitely return.
