As you begin your exploration of our beautiful oceanside town, every day will be a new adventure you will never forget, every minute filled with excitement, exhilaration, and excursions you will never want to end. And interspersed throughout, the need to feed your hunger and fuel your body’s engine will bring even more wonder into your life, especially when you visit Taste Tapas & Wine Bar, Fort Walton Beach’s most popular tapas, and wine bar!
Taste Tapas & Wine Bar – Located at 196 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE
Tucked away in a colorful yet unassuming strip mall, Taste Tapas and Wine Bar is a hidden gem you’ll be thrilled to uncover. The interior is designed with a simple décor: wood tables, metal chairs, and the occasional industrial touches of exposed pipes and stained concrete floors. Generously sized windows let in the light and a small patio area outside completes the picture of a tastefully delicious local eatery that welcomes you to the family with great food, service, and exquisite wines.
From deviled eggs to Maryland style crab balls, the tapas menu is a delicious and innovative one with each dish tasting better than the last. We don’t have a favorite dish—it’s impossible to choose just one—but the Pad Thai Shrimp Tacos always bring a smile to our face, and the Baked Macaroni and Cheese transports us back to our childhoods and the wonderful meals served in our grandmother’s kitchens. A strong weekend brunch menu featuring an extensive breakfast cocktail list has our taste buds jumping in delight and includes classic brunch dishes and some innovative variations. Their classic eggs benedict served with home fries and prosciutto instead of the standard Canadian bacon is a delight, but they don’t stop there. Also offering a Lobster Cake Benedict, our seafood loving palates begin to cry with joy at first taste. Oh, and before we forget, if you visit Taste for brunch, please be sure and order at least one bacon cinnamon roll for the table. You can thank us later!
Our discussion on Taste Tapas and Wine Bar won’t be complete without touching on their extensive wine menu. Living by their motto, “Life is always better when you sip, share, and TASTE,” the two pages of wines are always changing. Offering a red menu, a white menu, and a selection of wines on tap (Yes, you read this right and yes, this is our idea of paradise!), it’s our goal to taste every wine on the list, and if you’re here long enough, you should give it a try as well!
