“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We have been meaning to get there to try out what others had described as a good restaurant, well it's better than good and what I class as quite inexpensive. My wife had steak in a white wine sauce topped with king prawns and it was cooked to the minute to the way she ordered it. I had seafood marinara and it was superb, almost stopping me in finishing it, it being so healthy in size, it was chocked full of seafood, we are certainly glad we got there eventually and now we will be more frequent diners.

“Warm and welcoming”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

One of my favourite places to eat in the Manning. Laurie the chef and former winemaker, really loves to cook up a storm. The veal I had was so tender, you could cut it with a fork, and the home made pasta with blue cheese and pork belly was a lovely surprise - only the meat of the cured pork was used, and the hint of blue cheese gave it a wonderful depth of flavour.
Try to resist the deserts, or second thoughts just succumb to the Lemon cheesecake, Tiramisu, or Chocolate Ganash (aka death/heaven by chocolate)
Great for coffee or breakfast too. Geraldine is always welcoming and accommodating, and you are not rushed out for second sittings.
Getting popular, so recommend you book on weekends!

“Good coffee”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I'm a fussy coffee drinker and only ever have a double shot long black, no sugar. The Lavazza coffee I had today at Taste was really good, The amount of coffee matched the large cup exactly. I'll be back with friends for lunch and coffee next week.
