Taste Matters opened in Loughrea in November 2010 with the aim of serving honest, good, food in a casual and friendly setting.
The restaurant is cheerful and hospitable with friendly, welcoming, staff, great food, and a small but excellent list of natural, organic, and biodynamic wines, craft beers, and ciders.
The food is a fusion of various cuisines with influences mainly from Irish, French, and Italian cooking, although the inspiration can come from anywhere. Among the dishes you may find delicious chowder, monkfish poached in red wine, brie melt, grilled breast of duck, roasted rump of lamb, seafood medley, folded chicken, grilled salmon, or rib-eye steak.
Most of the dishes are gluten free and there are vegetarian options too, appealing to a wide variety of customers and dietary conditions.
Taste Matters is open for lunch from 12 noon to 3pm, Friday to Sunday, and for dinner 6pm to 9pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
