“Amazing dinner experience”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Cannot rave enough about Taste! From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, we were taken away. Ed & Atwon took the time to make sure that we were comfortable, having a great time, and well taken care of! We had the curry shrimp and the duck. AMAZING!!! We ended up staying late and having a long conversation with both Ed and Atwon (at different times) and couldn't have asked for a more memorable honeymoon dinner. We ordered a Yonder HIll wine at the restaurant, per their recommendation, and loved the wine. They suggested that we visit the winery which was very close to the restaurant and we did a couple days later and ended up shipping 2 cases of YH wines home... we were VERY lucky to have found both Taste and Yonder Hill! THANK YOU ED & ATWON FOR MAKING OUR SOUTH AFRICAN HONEYMOON EVEN MORE MEMORABLE!!

“Nice place, conveniently placed”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This is a lovely and informal place, where people meet for a cup of coffe or rooibush tea. It is a friendly place, which especially people from the university seem to cherish.

“Don't go there for the service”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Heard many good things about the lunch buffet they serve during the week and thought I would give them a try. Unfortunatley by 14:00 the buffet was already done and decided to settle on a quick toasted tomato pesto and cheese sandwich. The sandwich was average at best. The biggest dissapointment is the quality of the service, after sitting at the table unattended by a waiter for 20 minutes I manged to get a waiter's attention. The attitude of the staff is extremely lazy and serving you seems to be a choir to them. Getting any service from them is impossible and you have to repeat yourself several times before the order is understood. The bad service alone is enought to not make me go back again. Friendlier service is available elsewhere.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

So good we went back twice!! Service fantastic, food was delicious and seemingly home cooked. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere and fresh, clean and comfortable decor. A must for anyone who loves good food and a positive environment!
