Decided to go to the coast for the day, stopped at the Chesil Beachcafe for a coffee and a light bite.Lots of people at the Café , lot's of people walking up on the Chesil dune with great sunny weather. Carried on up to Portland...Heights ,had a walk towards the animal shelter,back to the observation area overlooking the Dune and then made for a light picnic lunch. Great afternoon, great weather just nice to be out' n 'about.More

Visited a few times over the last few months as we have bought a flat on the island. Consistent good food and good service. A gem of a find and worth pulling off the causeway to have lunch whilst looking across the pebbles that form...Chisel beach. Good quality food - I had a cajun chicken and avocado sandwich, great ice cream and a selection of cakes. Covid secure.More

We had a lovely lunch at Taste Chesil. We ate the Thai crabcakes which were delicious and then had the mixed berries pavlova which was out of this world. Will definitely be back again!

Been here many times and always had a good experience, today's visit however was a poor show. We arrived about 3.30 and just wanted some teas, when ordered we informed the member of staff we would like to drink outside and while the drinks were...being prepared we looked around the shop. When the drinks arrived they were in crockery cups and when we went to go outside we were rudely told we had to consume them inside, as there were five adults and three children we also wanted to add another chair to the table as there were only four chairs and we were abruptly informed we were not allowed to move a chair from another table by the person who appeared to be in charge. All things considered, sadly we did not have an enjoyable experience and we will go elsewhere next time. No need for rudeness and if this is the attitude they will not get the business they so desperate my need.More

Dear Michelle, Thanks for the visit and review of our service and good quality produce. Our chefs even make doggie biscuit treats so I hope your four legged friend was able to test them too!

We popped into Taste after a walk along Chesil beach, we were welcomed warmly by staff who were genuinely happy and polite. We had our little dog with us who was also welcome to come inside with us to eat. The menu offered vegan and...meat dishes of good selection which were all very reasonably priced. The food arrived very promptly and was fresh and present nicely. A couple of the servers took a few moments to come and chat which was nice. We would definitely eat here again.More

Very slow service and not particularly friendly. Bear in mind that on top of prices, you're likely having to pay for parking, there are other places that might be better.More
