“Lovely spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

A great spot to dine and soak out the atmosphere of Mandurah.

The restaurant and food is presented beautifully and they play lovely tunes.

The food wasn't bad but not really my cup of tea. We went there for dinner and breakfast and surprisingly a lot of the dishes we ordered where deep fried which I wasn't expecting.

Loved the cocktail, Appletini.

Some of the waiters where friendly but overall the service overall wasn't exceptional.

Thank you for your kind word's. The service comment is something we would like to rectify if it was not to the standard you would expect. If you could provide me the name of your waiter/waitress for the evening so we can make sure the standards we set are maintained for all diners. Please feel free to private message me @ terry@tasteandgraze.com.au.
Thank You,

Kind Regard's,

“Needs a better wine list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

No doubt the best food experience in Mandurah spoiled by a very limited wine list. For my wife and I the wine is just as important as the food. Not sure why but they do not have a reasonable BYO policy that would accomodate wine lovers like us. We will return but would do so more often if the wine list was better or a BYO policy was instituted.

Thank you for your review. We are looking to expand the wine selection asap. It is a rather costly venture and we need to choose a thoughtful and evocative list not only compliment the food but introduce something a little different to reflect our style of venue.

Thank you again and we will see you soon.

Regards,
Terry Strudwick

“Terrific coffee and groovy little cafe/restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

In my opinion this is the place to go to in Mandurah. The coffee is excellent and while we didn't eat here the food menu looked really good. Lovely view over the park and waterway. It's also a bit of a fancy wine bar - the descriptions of the recommended wines made me want to try some even though it was morning (I didn't!).

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

After reading excellent reviews on here we were not disappointed. Food delicious and handmade with added extras that gave the taste that special additional wow factor.
Coffee delicious, toasted banana bread served on wooden boards...gorgeous. We will return.
The only downside was that having read on here that they have WiFi I was disappointed to learn that they have stopped it.
Shame because had they had it we would have stayed longer and had more coffee. They said they had to discontinue it due to issues???? It was difficult to find WiFi in Mandurah altogether!!!

“Great Tasting Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a wonderful Cafe by day with great coffee and wonderful tasting cakes with a great breakfast ,and lunch selection, and then during the night you enter into a wonderful five star setting restaurant with staff to match, each choice of food is done with care and thought and placed on your plate with detailed precision, you also have the matching wines available to go with your meal.

It really is a place to visit to relax and look at the water and catch up with friends over a nice coffee or wine, it is my choice in Mandurah to visit.
