Taste Restaurant provided a banquet party for our neighborhood association and did the best job I have participated in for large group services and food. Each dish was delicious, served beautifully, and at the right temperature. Really hard to do for a large group. Highly recommend the Chilis en Nogades, the bread, the salsas, and desserts. All delicious.

We were so happy to provide this event as a fundraiser for the Amapas Neighborhood Association. All ANA members get 10% off Taste anytime if you show your membership card. And yes, the Chile en Nogada is a wonderful dish. More

Its the hotel restaurant. I cant imagine anyone other than hotel visitors would trek up here to dine in it. The fare was basic, nothing superb, but decent.

I have eaten several times at Taste and it has always been Excellent! The ambiance and setting is beautiful and the staff is so warm and attentive. Today we enjoyed their special Thanksgiving buffet, which was amazing! Don (the owner) is a gracious host and Fernando (the manager) does a fantastic job of running the best restaurant in town! We...

Our dinner menu is made up exclusively of Mexican dishes, and there are two fish dishes (Zarandeado and Hoja Santa) and one shrimp, so not really sure what you are talking about. We're sorry the food was not to your liking but a "raw" fish can always be cooked more if asked and Our Lamb Mixiote, served in the classic... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Cupula (the hotel in which Taste is located), and we had our breakfast at Taste everyday. The staff was so sweet and helpful, and the food was great. We also attended a tasting event with samples from their new menu! It was great, and we can definitely give Taste our best recommendation.

The new chef at taste hs blown me away with his creative new menu and creativity. The contrasting flavors all tease perfectly and I couldn't keep track of all the combinations of flavors that worked so gracefully together. Lovely ambiance and amazing hospitality make this my favorite place to eat in all of Vallarta.

While staying at the Casa Cupula we dined at Taste for breakfast. The atmosphere and service are amazing as well as the food, however for breakfast we found it rather spendy in comparison to the local breakfast joints. Still enjoyable, but you are paying for the convenience on site.

We hope the beauty, the service, the air conditioning and the convenience is indeed worth something. But you're also paying taxes. We accept your credit card, which means your payment goes in the bank which means the Mexican government collects 16% IVA from it. If you pay in cash locally that may not be the case. You could pay us... More

We were fortunate that our hotel, Casa Cupola, had this restaurant downstairs. The chef has created a delicious, innovative menu that left my BF and I coming back for more. What made this restaurant head and shoulders above the rest was the staff: the manager Fernando, and staff, Everardo, Juan and David, made us feel like friends rather than restaurant... More
