From the moment we entered the restaurant ( we had not booked) we were very well looked after - staff helpful, observant and friendly. Food good/ tasty. Would recommend for an enjoyable meal.

“Well worth a visit - fantastic food!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We visited A Different Taste on a Sunday at 6pm, thankfully we had booked a table as the place quickly filled up and I lost count of times the amount of people calling in to be turned away as there was no tables available. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner and chef who was very accommodating to requests for a ceoliac diet when most items on the menu could be adapted to suit. We all had starters and main courses and everyone was impressed with the food.

One slight area for improvement would be with the service, an investment in some experienced waiting staff would be worthwhile, we asked for the desert menu which never arrived, in the end we gave up and got an ice cream from the gelataria next door. However I would definately visit A Different Taste again as we had a most enjoyable meal and would highly recommend it for its tasty food.

“Consistently Outstanding!!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is the second review I have written of this restaurant for good reason, I first visited two years ago, now whenever I'm in the Lakes I always try and get to A Different Taste and the food quality, service and value for money never disappoint, always try the poached pear dessert, but the starters and mains, well you can't go wrong really!

It may be a small restaurant but it has a huge heart in the shape of the owner and hostess!

“Top spot”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We hadn't booked and had to come back after 30 minutes but we didn't mind as it was jam packed on a Saturday night. Service was excellent, food was delicious. Very nice to meet Debra her daughter and the rest of the staff...made us feel very welcome!
