“Excellent as always”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Visited Taste Matters twice in the last month & again I was not disappointed. First visit was trout special and it tasted divine served on some beetroot & fennel with lovely boiled & buttered baby potatoes on the side. Presentation was on a slate and was really excellent. I had hake special in my latest visit and it was served with butter beans and again it was absolutely delicious. The chowder started was as always extremely tasty. We also had a bottle of the granache biodymanic red wine and it was lovely, very drinkable!
Staff were very friendly and professional and there was a lovely atmosphere so again highly recommend a visit if passing through Loughrea or living there and not yet tried it!

“Gorgeous food & great service”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We ate in Taste Matters last night, after checking Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat in Loughrea. Lovely ambience and very friendly, helpful staff. There is not a huge choice on the menu but the food was delicious with lots of extra touches and presentation was top class. Less than €80 for two dinners a starter, dessert, bottle of wine and pint of beer. Strongly recommend.

“Best meal of the trip!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We ate here on the recommendation of a bartender in Loughrea and were so happy we did. The menu options were unexpected, the service was great, the food delicious and well-presented. We started with the cauliflower, parsnip and blue cheese soup...WOW. Incredibly delicious. My sister had the duck, which was the best she'd ever had. I had the fish of the day, which was salmon and just perfect. Our waitress was from Latvia and was very friendly and personable. Great experience, if you are in or near Loughrea, be sure to go!
