Tastecard is a bit of a hit and miss...some restaurants do "adjust" their food offerings (usually smaller portions, lower quantity expensive ingredients e.g. number of prawns or inferior quality e.g. fish won't be white but it will be greyish). Nowadays, there are several well known chain restaurants on there so plenty of choice for those who live in built up areas. I find these restaurants are usually fine with accommodating Tastecard customers (food is fine, no moody faces). I find the restaurants that do not require you to book ahead and tell them it is a Tastecard booking are the fairest as they won't know you are using it, obviously. So my tip is to stick to these firstly. If you do have any complaints at all, contact Tastecard directly and they sometimes will take action against the restaurant (probably reminding them that they signed up promising not to give different meals or bad service to Tastecard customers who will be paying less). I did this once and a few weeks later the restaurant went out of business....I don't think it was down to me but more likely, it was just a bad restaurant all round!
I think the card is great. Got a card the other week on the 99p deal & used it at Beefeater for a group of 6 for a Birthday & saved a fortune.
Don't bother. Used it few times in the past. The restaurant staff made you feel like you tried to rob them. The whole experience was rather muted and meals were adjusted accordingly to the discount. Perhaps one off experience but never again.
Don't bother, I signed up for 3 month trial once got the card and never used it once, mostly high-end posh restaurants allow you to use it, discount is small, 2 for price of 1 meal at best, Also if you forget to cancel you get charged monthly.. if you're rich you may use this, if not.. I wouldn't bother.. plus be prepared for spam emails after been signed up. I'm going back some time since I had one years ago, so things may have changed & much more added but I never used it once ever.
Yeah, these guys are very unforgiving. One of the worst of there I'd say.
