First off all, what a location! We arrived in the evening (made a reservation) and it was already dark, the restaurant is between 2 other building and it's more located in the back so with the lighting of the place it already sets a very nice ambiance. They are very welcoming and the interior is beautiful, it's an industrial look... More

There isn't a menu but therefore the food is brought to a higher level. For us a must if you like fusion cooking. My clients find it so delicious that they still speak about the food if I have them on the phone. The service very nice and cosy. We strongly recommend this restaurant!

limited choice for the business lunch but very good and with the necessary flexibility for allergies - top class, chef. Interior is OK. Warm welcome and service by the owners-couple. The other staff is rather inexperienced - information about dishes or questions about drinks are not what it should be. They didn't see or check if our glasses were empty.... More

This was our second visit to Taratata. We knew what to expect. And again, the food and overall experience was superb. We chose the 5-dish menu. The combination of fish and meat was in a good balance. Every dish was prepared with eye for detail. Great combination of flavors and use of some "forgotten" (uncommon) vegetables. The portions are small... More

I'm not a food savant, so this is very personnal. The welcome and arrangement was really amazing in this restaurant. We were there at 18:35 with a reservation for 19:00 (saturday evening) and they did not make any problem out of this. (One tip maybe is to go in a bit early so you can choose your seating. Around 19:00... More

The hostess is very friendly, we started the meal with a tast explosion of egg plant and carrots, sour sweet, spicy, it was all there! The main course was perfect as well and the desert not to heavy and still very tasty! A great diner in a great setting

We took the 5 courses set menu. Appetizers ranged from very good (herring with yoghurt) to so so (something with sticky rice). Throughout the rest of the meal, the combination of some very well prepared ingredients and some less good prepared ingredients was a constant. For example, the "popped bread with filling of mascarpone and truffle" wasn't very tasty, but... More
