“Taste remains a favorite, we've never had a single disappointing bite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

The view from the terrace remains fantastic. Tables are comfortably space. The music is familiar, romantic, hip and danceable, played at a volume that allows easy conversation.

The gifted chef, Oscar Rito, is no longer at Taste but he's made certain that his recipes are continuing "as written". The menu is varied, creative, unexpected. The wait staff is knowledgeable, attentive, good humored. Everything is well-explained, ingredient alterations are made with grace to accommodate diet preferences or restrictions. The bread is marvelous. They do a killer-good tortilla soup. Food portions are generous and the prices are remarkably low. (An average dinner at Si, Señor is far more expensive than the fine meal you will have at Taste.) Ambience, food and value at Taste is far superior to both Cafe des Artistes and Hacienda San Angel. We haven't had a disappointing bite

“Wonderful last night in PV!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We wanted a great dinner our last night in PV and our group of 7 decided to try Taste based on reviews. The restaurant is beautiful, and has great views. The menu is kind of Tapas based, although the portions are larger than any tapas place I've been. The food was delicious, and it was nice to share it among our group, and the diet Margaritas are great. Towards the end of dinner, the owner came down, introduced himself and checked to see how our food was. I always respect and appreciate this. There is a sweet lab that will wander around the hotel and restaurant, which I loved also. The owner gave us drink tickets for the pool party that was starting down below, so we decided to stick around and enjoy the festivities in one of the gorgeous private tents by the pool. All in all highly recommended!

Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words.

This is a good opportunity to remind anyone reading that we have our famous Warmup Cocktail Party every Friday evening from 9-11:30pm. There are music videos and both hotel and outside guests. It's a bit more roudy than usual, and more fun too, and we offer diners a free drink to come join us at the party, so Friday night's a great night to combine your dinner with a Warmup for a night out. :)

If you prefer a quieter evening, try Monday (Date Night) or Wednesday.

“OMG better than I expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We have been going to PV for over 25 years. A friend who we turned on to PV told us about Taste restaurant in Casa Cupula that recently open to the public. For our anniversary( Dec 19th 2013) we decided to do something different & choose "Taste restaurant" since we are foodies. The new Chief (Juan Pablo Luna) was at La Palapa & Vista Grill + Ritz Carlton in NYC previously) The food was fabulous from the appetizer through the desserts. What's really is unique is they offer 1/2 orders so you can try many dishes. The staff is gracious & the food is fabulous..... you gotta go!! The owner Don was very nice & made us feel very welcomed & appreciated. Romantic , secluded & just above the main part of town. We actually walked to Basilo Badillo & Insurgentes to see a show act Act II. (this is apart of another review & not to be missed)

“The Best of Puerto Vallarta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

This place is beautiful and so romantic! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Some may say that it's a bit pricey but the service and food is well worth the money. (You get what u pay for) Very classy place. It's kinda tucked away and a bit hard to get to (on a steep hill). I recommend the chilli margaritas (be careful, they're so good and go down so smoothly). The blackened ravioli was my absolute favorite. I was with a couple of friends and we shared a few dishes, all of which were exquisite. We were in P.V. for a week and tried different places to eat everyday... Taste was my absolute favorite.
