We had a lovely lunch here on the balcony above the small pool. We had fish tacos, which were delicious and attractively served. Guacamole and chips were also tasty. For dessert on a quiet day we were offered the choice of horchata creme brûlée or chocolates. We chose the chocolates, which were displayed beautifully with grapes and flowers. It was a charming and relaxing setting. We will definitely return.
We have enjoyed wonderful dinners in the past at Taste - the menu was so very creative using only Mexican ingredients with a unique Mexican twist, the meals were just delightful with full flavors that we could not wait to share with visiting friends. Now the menu selection is just blaaa and missing that wonderful Mexican twist.
The entire meal was not a meal we would have thought possible, we were the only table in the restaurant @ 8pm - the apps were served luke warm, the main dish was extremely salty. The server came to the table to ask how we were enjoying the meal however there was absolutely no acknowledgement as to our dissatisfaction and the restaurant manager, sitting nearby at the bar did nothing but browse on his phone.
During our dinner, there was one person hovering around the table and eventually introduced himself as the restaurant's consultant. After hearing our concerns he asked that we pass them onto the manager before leaving (what is the point of having a consultant). The manager continued sitting at the bar browsing on his phone ignoring us. We will not return again !!
This was our first time at Taste; no one was at the door or entry area to greet us so we had to wander around to find the restaurant. Music was too loud to be able to visit; it was eventually turned down after others complained. Our first drink orders took over ten minutes to receive -- we were the only table at the time; after ordering a second round the waiter forgot the order! As other patrons arrived they were seated immediately next to our table rather than allowing for some privacy and space between groups. We felt the staff was still learning their routine. Appetizers were extremely small and expensive. However, my main course was of sufficient size and properly prepared.
Went for Thanksgiving dinner special. Food was good, however, the buffet was set up poorly with a bad flow and way too many people. Service was extremely lacking and slow to say the least. This is my third time to this restaurant so I will likely not be going back again. There are too many other better places in PV for an enjoyable evening with better food and service.
Interesting contemporary Mexican cuisine. Minimalist wine selection. Unusual yet entertaining outdoor seating next to a bar which projected and played music videos on a large wall.
We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday last night and had a lovely meal! He had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly, I had fish with a lightly breaded and fried octopus served over mushroom risotto. The staff were cheerful and accommodating. I love this restaurant....oh and did I mention the terrific view of Banderas Bay??
I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and everything has been great. However this last meal on Friday night was unacceptable. One guest at our table returned his food. The others were less than impressed with the food. The service is excellent and the staff great however this was an off night for the kitchen. One bad experience like this makes you think you might not return. We come to Mexico for three months and usually will go for dinner 3 times. Not sure when next.
Staff seems to change somewhat frequently but every hire reveals more good people. Food is consistently good. The chef does well at adjusting each meal to my individual preferences. Just a pleasant experience each time.
Last year, while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta, I enjoyed a great dinner at Taste. This year we stayed at Casa Cupula and enjoyed five breakfasts, one Sunday brunch, four lunches, and two dinners. The food is creative and tasty blending traditional Mexican flavors with a modern twist. The wait staff are attentive and friendly, And the views out to the bay are some of the best in Puerto Vallarta. Absolutely worth a trip to Taste, especially for a sunset dinner.
Great food and impeccable service. Highly recommend.
Valentine's Day dinner. Romantic, food excellent, creatively served. Carpaccio was served on a rock, dinner on a floor tile. Service was great.
We went on overall recommendations for our first night in Puerto Vallarta. We were not disappointed. A bit difficult to find but definitely worth the search. The food was innovative Mexican cuisine. The service was outstanding. The Night that we were there they had a couple from Argentina that sang Brazilian bossa nova. They were incredible and made our visit special. Definitely worth a visit
Well displayed and tasty food. Choice of mimosa of bloody Mary, we asked for champagne and were give it with no question. Not a huge selection but certainly more than one could eat. The omelet/egg/taco station was unique in that you placed your order then it was brought to the table. No standing in the dreaded omelet line! Service was efficient and friendly. Food really over the top. We've been doing a different brunch every Sunday and this really stood out. They called a cab for us when we were finished.
Lovely setting, good food. Hollandaise on eggs Benedict a little disappointing (too lemony for one of us), vegetables with eggs ho-hum.
We did not know that the Sunday brunch was a buffet. The restaurant is quite small and not easy to find. The selection was minimal and that one could order other dishes that were not included in the brunch was not explained well. It needs some finessing to appeal to more people. The location is lovely.
Everything was fine util i mentioned their promotion which quote-unquote:
The offer mentioned a 2 for offer. The waiter had NO clue as to what I was saying. To me it meant a two for one offer on an entree.
He had to wait for the manager to clarify and he defined an entree as an appetizer. Without ruining our dinner I humbly accepted an appetizer.
A little dissapointing especially when the waiter was not informed of the promotional offer. I will be willing to return, especially since I live three blocks away but hopefully managerial and staff are on the same track.
This restaurant is excellent. The food, ambience and service are excellent. The only problem incurred was I made the reservation for eight people on October 30th for Thanksgiving with Open Table. Taste did not receive the reservation from Open Table until Thanksgiving day. They were very gracious and had everything set up for us but it was a bit alarming Open Table did not submit the reservation on a timely basis.
The occasion was Thanksgiving. Wonderful buffet food and great drinks. One disappointment was someb items on the online menu were not part of the buffet (e.g. artisan breads, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, and pies). However the quality of food made up for these lacking items.
We really enjoy finding new places to eat and hang out. This was a good find. The ambiance was very relaxed and chill. Service was great, as was the food. Since we live here in Vallarta we are used to seeing a nice view and Taste offers that too. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Was a lovely evening.
This was both a surprising and amazing experience. Savory and imaginative food in a lush and quiet environment, with not an ounce of pretense (although they'd have every right). The dishes pay homage to the Puerto Vallarta setting but with Euro and American tweaks to keep things interesting. Great for a romantic evening or fun with friends.
The place looks great, service was pleasant, and the menu seemed interesting. But the food was just disappointing. Mediocre tortilla soup, and ribs with an overly sweet sauce. The fish was okay.
Very good restaurant. The small plates give many oprions. Although a gay hotel, we felt very welcomed.
Hot new restaurant with great food and a great view overlooking the jungle and Amapas area
This place is a bit tricky to find if you are on foot, but worth the quick walk up the hill. You have to be buzzed in, so just ring the bell when you get to the gate. The drinks were all tasty and the food was excellent. We had a lovely table that looked out into the jungle and it was busy, but the spacing of the tables kept it quiet. Great service and all of the staff were very friendly. Definitely somewhere we will return to in Vallarta.
One of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. It was so good in fact that we went twice during our trip. The tasting menu is great and gives you a chance to sample 3 items from the menu for like 250 pesos, so if you go with two people you can pick 6 things and try a bunch of different food. The short ribs was the hands down favorite. The dessert tres leches was also very good.
Excellent! You can't go wrong here...
Hard to find and with many of the hillside restaurants in PV, a little hard on the car's suspension! But outstanding once we arrived . . . wonderful food, service, and ambience. Can't wait to go back.
