What a dining experience ! Service friendly fun and helpful. The food absolutely sensational. The Chef is clearly very knowledgeable and is very talented. I have been a few times and disagree with a previous review I don’t want the menu to change it’s perfect...and I know for instance that those duck spring rolls will be there and so many items I look forward to. There is a specials board which gives you a great selection of what’s in season as was the sensational barramundi last night. Best food in Coffs Harbour !More

Our previous visit to Taste was extremely positive so we returned this evening to celebrate a birthday but it was not the experience expected. Maybe the chef was on holidays or having a bad evening but the presentation, the taste and the food overall was...not good. Even the tea -was served in thick coffee cups not appropriate to the delicate tea. I dont think we will return.More

Amazing food Beautiful fresh produce cooked to perfection. We had our family up from Sydney and they are used to fine dining and said this was one of the best meals I had ever had. The service was also second to none. Look forward to...coming back soon.More

Coffs Harbour has a lot of restaurants, but so many are very ordinary. It's nice to find one that's truly exceptional. I was worried that it may be a little hot on a summer evening, but the entire front of the restaurant opens to the...street, so you're effectively eating al fresco, with a nice breeze, supplemented by the overhead fans. I was in a group of five, and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our various dishes. Service was exemplary. The acoustics were good too, so even the slightly hard of hearing in our group were able to participate fully in the conversation, something that's not always possible in restaurants with lots of hard surfaces. Their only error was omitting a couple of drinks from our bill, but we brought this to their attention, as we all want to go to heaven!More

I'm not sure why the owner/chef doesn't change the menu. What they offer is excellent, but whenever I go there (and I'm a regular), the menu is always the same. There is only one vegetarian meal. It has been the same for the past 6+...months. Why? Is the chef not that confident or maybe just isn't up to the job? They need to change the menu on a regular basis and also offer more variety for vegetarian/vegan diners.More

From the moment we walked through the door , the warm friendly greeting by the waitresses made us feel so welcome. We were pretty sure from reading reviews we were in for a special treat tonight . We had the duck spring rolls for entree..., then the eye fillet and duck mains wow wow wow , outstanding, just Devine every mouthful. Finished off with the sticky date pudding & creme brûlée which was served with fruit and a happy birthday message from the chef . Our entire 3 course were delicious Thankyou all for such a lovely dinner and night Chris & JenelleMore

Superb meal all cooked by the owner chef. Had dinner with 2 couples all ordering different meals. Menu is compact but more than adequate. The quality is outstanding and the staff excellent. Well worth a visit

Friendly greeting on arrival by staff & Chef. A Menu filled with delicious food choices - just enough & fabulous wine. We love Duck - it was cooked to perfection & well presented. We enjoyed our night & loved the chat with our Waitress. Highly...recommend to book & enjoy a memorable dining experience.More
