passé composé referring to the restaurant.

why use "'on a dégusté " when you can use the imperfect or irregular version "on dégustait" without the a? because i find that way more confusing..

The choice of tense used is determined by context. A particular event in the past usually requires the passé composé and not the imparfait. The imperfect would imply that there was a period of time in the past over which the tasting took place, like a habit.
