We have been to Taste quite a few times in the last few years. We always have really good food and the service is also always great. It is normally busy but you don't have to wait that long for your meals.

This place is always good. The menu doesn't appear to have ever changed which means you know what you are about to have served. The service is always good and the food tasty. You must book as this is a small restaurant.

Five of us had a late Sunday breakfast at Taste and is was a lovely way to start the day. Warm hosts, a classic dining room, a menu that is adds interest to all of the favourites and coffee and juices that hit the mark. Outside the weather was appalling, inside we chatted and laughed over a week cooked delightful... More

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
