Come here more often .love the food and love to be surprised. The food is amazing so different from other restaurants. Also love the ambiance and the open kitchen. The staff are so friendly and know what they are talking about when it comes to...choosing wine or beer with the different courses. Certainly recomend this restaurant.More

The small dishing sate all totally different and after the diner you don’t have the idea that you eat tomuch. The winemanual is...small but has some nice bottles for reasonable prices.

Located at -1 floor of hotel mercure in the city center is suffering the absence of windows. The restaurant at ground floor is less expensive and more bistrot. The dinner is organized as a surprise menu so if you have allergies or don’t like specifically...something better speak up. It is 7 courses menu wine pared if you wish but they are small portions so you can enjoy all of them. Just took some pics of the marvelous dishes proposed. With two glasses of wine I paid 68€ alone.More

They only have the tasting menu and you can only choose how many dishes you want, nothing else (though mention allergies). There are also a number of ‘free’ dishes, tiny appetisers really. The food is exquisitely prepared, artistic and aesthetic. As a result it takes...a long time! We ordered a 3-dish menu (the maximum is 7) and it still took almost 3 hours. My colleague previously ordered a 4 dish menu and it took 5 hours. All dishes can be paired with drinks by the sommelier: wine, beer, non-alcoholic cocktails, the choice is yours. Dinner (3 dishes) + non-alcoholic cocktails for 2 came to E128.More

Saturday March 9th 2019 Finally managed to pick a date for diner with the whole family. Taste! became our choice. Not completely unknown so we had some expectations. We chose for the 4-course “Taste it all” arrangement that includes the wine selected by the sommelier....The first impression was that the wine arrangement was rather pricy but looking at the size of the glasses and the generosity the wine was poured in, this impression was clearly wrong. Starting with amuses and wine under guidance of the sommelier was a perfect opening for the evening. We fully enjoyed the delicious creations and accompanying wines. Sufficient time between the courses enabled us to chat with each other. Very competent and attentive staff made our stay very successful. Thank you Taste! for your effort to please your clients!More

This was an unexpected wonderful experience at Taste! The restaurant is indeed located at the same address as the Mercure Hotel but is not just a hotel restaurant. From start to finish this was one of the best restaurant experiences in the past year. The...welcome, the choice of cocktails, and then Dinner (with a capital D)! We selected the 6 course surprise diner with wine pairing suggested by the sommelier Kees Verlaan. Even with a wine that was developed by himself (Taste! Wine by Kees Verlaan). While enjoying our cocktail drinks some small starters were served. Real great looks and real good Taste! This continued the rest of the evening. From really unique ways of presentation as well as the food quality: excellent. Maybe the portions were a little big sometimes for a 6 course. Besides the food, everything which is being served comes with a small explanation about origin (wines of course, but how often do you get background info of the olive oil in other restaurants... here they put pride in what they do... just enjoy). All for a more than acceptable price. The location in the basement does not have great views but has a real nice atmosphere and we have never been missing a view... but in summer time (they told us) they seem to open the outdoor dining at the 5th floor with a magnificent view of the city center, as they explained. Conclusion: we probably will end up being "regular" guests.More
