    The most beautiful and thought out menu with matching wines. We couldn’t fault anything and cannot wait to come back and experience another month’s menu. The knowledge Mitch had around his wines and matching them with the menu created by the chef was unreal. you can really tell they love what they do. Cannot recommend this place enough for the food, wine and overall experience. Thankyou!

    Brilliant This is the second time we have been to Taste in the past few months. The first was for our wedding anniversary, and the second when we had family visiting from overseas. The food was outstanding and the entire menu and matching wines different to when we were there only 2 months prior. The service is simplistic but excellent. Mitch the lead waiter and sommelier is extremely knowledgeable, personable and super friendly. All discussions and explanations about the food and wine are totally unscripted and straight from his passion and knowledge for the topic. The food is always fresh, well balanced, packed with local Tassie produce and simply delicious. Sometimes when you go for a nice, more costly feed, the potion sizes disappoint and you leave hankering for a double cheese on the way home, not at Taste. Well done team, top stuff 👍🏻💪🏻

    This was our second visit and this time for our wedding anniversary. The presentation and food was amazing and this time we tried the wines to match. This was really special and well thought out. Wait staff have great knowledge of the wines and foods. Portions were ample for the number of courses. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    WOW experience! Clever dishes with a variety of textures and flavours. It's fine dining but the portions are a good size - not too tiny; not too big; just right. The dishes were beautifully presented on interesting crockery and sooo tasty! We chose a wine pairing and that complemented the dishes really well. The service was faultless. Chef Simon and his team came to chat to the diners and were happy to talk about their food and wine philosophy. Highly recommended!

    My wife and I arrived a little late after a day trip across from Geelong on the Spirit of Tasmania and we were ready for a great meal. We hadn't realised that this would be one of the great meals of our lives. The staff were welcoming and explained that the menu is changed each month and that there were no decisions to make because it was a dégustation menu. There also was the option of matching wines which we took. What an extraordinary taste sensation we had with every course remarkable and the wine pairing of the highest order. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and proud of the quality of their food and the NZ chef gifted in putting together a variety of tastes. We started with Scallops, wrapped in prosciutto and a Kilpatrick sauce and also chicken liver paté with cherry jelly. This was followed by a chilled (but warm) prawn cocktail and then a chilled tomato soup blended with summer vegetables. A very interesting and tasty course came next - turkey schnitzel with chestnut purée and cranberries. We barely had room for the next to last course of roast lamb (cooked sous-vide for 12 hours) served with a summer pea purée. Finally there was a unique crême brulée made with Christmas pudding fruits as a base. The staff at Taste provide a unique experience for customers and truly it is worth a long trip to visit Taste which provides one of the most wonderful dining experiences in Australia.

    Having read the menu prior to dining we were excited to taste. The attention to detail in each and every course was executed perfectly and the wine pairing was an excellent experience. So nice not to have to make decisions. Each course was 100% and a feast for all your senses. We thoroughly enjoyed and tasted our way through an amazing array of food from the December menu which was aptly designed to change up some good old Christmas favourites. The staff were very efficient & knowledgeable when explaining the origins and concepts of the menu & wines and we are very much looking forward to returning to taste more delectable treats from TASTE. By Bold Cusine. Well done to the TASTE team.

    This was our second visit. No change since first, exceptional service, knowledge of wine and food, sources etc. was amazing. We are still amazed and the variety of dishes presented; the food concepts must involve much time researching and refining. We love how the venue holds only 20 people and your table is not re-booked so you can stay as long as needed to enjoy the 'taste'. Highly recommended and since the menu changes monthly, we will no doubt be back again, and again. We've recommended Taste by Bold to many friends and family.

    Such a unique dining experience. We opted for the beverage matching, which was so interesting to hear the pairings and about where each bottle was from. Having the chef deliver some meals and giving further detail into each dish was thoughtful. Would definitely recommend for fine dining.

    The table service was excellent .The wine matching with the courses was very good. all of the food courses were excellent with the only comment relating to the quantity of lamb in the last course which could have been reduced by at least 30%. The outstanding course was the Ling which was cooked to perfection
