Christmas Day lunch was superb! 5-courses, beck-and-call service, and a vibrant, dynamic atmosphere. A must go for any passers-by and local residents.

The Taste Bistro is my secret haven when I want to celebrate something or sulk a little in private. Their Banting chocolate cake and a pot of earl grey tea do it for me- again and again! Also seeing Anton's friendly face

From the moment you enter you are waited on by friendly staff. The food was delicious with portion sizes being just right. Prices are reasonable and choices are sufficient without being overwhelming. Atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. A must if in the area.

I firmly believe that if a restaurant makes an effort with the last course of a meal, then they are onto something special and cares about the menu. On top of it all there is a banting touch to the menu which has the result...More
