Taste is exactly that, incredibly tasty. I had the beautifully cut Sashimi, Negri with little amazing flavours, my wife had celeriac gyoza, (stunning tastes), she had glazed pork and I had a broth of lemongrass and coconut milk, with beautiful pieces of snow crab and smoked raw sea bream that I dipped in the broth to cook. A Japanese Smoked Cheesecake with popcorn ice-cream finished it off. Absolutely amazing meal.

Very expensive restaurant which is strictly for special occasions. Beautiful food, a real culinary experience. Original combinations of Japanese flavours and ingredients. Excellent selection of sake - we tried 3 types, all fantastic. Wonderful service provided by Florian. But with a bill of 172 euros I'd say it's overpriced.

Food was excellent but overpriced .. room was underwhelming , service was excellent. Appetisers were really good . For 280 euro , I would prefer a classier decor , larger table and much more of an experience.

First class food experience and a great bustling ambiance and funky setting. Would highly recommend this experience. Probably better to book an early sitting to get the waiting staff when they are still fresh ;)

This was our 2nd time at Taste @Rustic. Both meals have been wonderful. The service is always exemplary & the food is simply amazing.
It was an Anniversary meal & we were treated like royalty... it was outstanding & we can't wait to go back.

We used open table to book the reservation and ended up at Taste. The maitr’d at Rustic kept saying “how delicious” the food “upstairs” was without just saying it was Japanese. We went away feeling like we spent too much money.

An excellent dining experience. The pre dinner bites are delicious. Tempura broccoli was amazing. Second time visiting Taste and had be sea bream pot and it was as good second time. The service was excellent. Our wait staff were very attentive but not overbearing. I will definitely be back in the near future. It is pricey but definitely worth it

Food was good but overpriced. It's not something you can do very often. You pay a lot for portions that are way too small.

I’d give it 6 stars if I could! We booked a great offer through taste.ie so had a limited menu but that really didn’t matter. The room is very cool, the staff (two guys when we were there) super attentive and fun...and the food is FANTASTIC! Had sushi starter with a steak main course and fantastic orange chocolate desert. Lovely cocktail in the bar afterwards. I didn’t see the a la carte menu which is probably pricey but this place is brilliant - thanks for a super night.

Nice meal, very tasty. Sharing sushi plates a lovely starter - 10 pieces necessary for two. Friendly wait staff. Confusing entrance - went to two wrong bars/restaurants before finding the actual restaurant

Great food and service! Loved the decor and very confy seats and cozy place. The Bonzai Bar is very hip and great place to have drinks. I was there on New Years Eve and though everything was great I was expecting more for celebrating new years.. no countdown, no sparkling wine and no props!

The food was sensational, we had the tasting menu and it was well worth worth it. It was a quiet night (just before NYE) but I’d say it would have a great atmosphere in regular times
