A modified old house that contains a modern if conservative restaurant. It serves excellent but not exotic food which is cooked to near perfection and the wines are good. If you want a really good night out with good food and service, then make a booking. You will not be disappointed

Nice clean classical decor. We only wanted 1 entree to share which they were good enough to split. The mains were not flashy but were well cooked and came hot. The iceberg lettuce salad and fried potatoes for all are a nice quirk of this restaurant. Good choices in the dessert menu. My wife loved the lemon pudding. My chocolate... More

We come here regularly for brunch. Service and quality can never be faulted. It is traditional fare, but often that's what you want and you know exactly what you are getting. Great value.

My partner and I celebrated our second year anniversary there. The food was scrumptious and the staff, including the owners very friendly and attentive.

My wife and I dined at Taste last night and once again it was superb. The two owners were excellent hosts and ensured that every detail of the occasion was truly catered for. The food was, once again faultless and delicious and the portions generous. We are so lucky to have one of Wellington's best restaurants tucked away in Khandallah... More

We were a group of about 8 family and friends - we had booked well in advance. On a wet Wellington night the greeting couldn't have been colder. The 2 gentlemen at the door both had a total look of displeasure on their faces - certainly there were no happy smiles and may I take your soaking wet coat! We... More

Because its not central but boy its worth it if you are in for a bit of top of the triangle of food choices. Treats you normally only see in glossy magazines are within reach. The hardest part is , what to choose. Be prepared , go when hungry.

We thought the food and service were spot on. The scallops as entree and blue cod for main melted in my mouth. Husbands meaty dishes were also cooked beautifully. The service was professional and friendly. A romantic and charming ambience.

Taste delivers the most delicious, beautifully presented meals. Every dish is superb and worth every dollar. We especially love their roasted potatoes which come with main courses. Excellent service and a pleasant decor. A restaurant where you can comfortably chat to each other without having to shout over the neighbouring tables guests.

Thank LittleMo1955
