"Michal and Jirka have the magic formula, Jirka at the front of house is hugely likeable, while Michal in the kitchen is clearly talented. Taste Matters has been building up a good local clientele and was certainly worth the drive from Galway. These guys know what they are doing, now they just need everyone else to know what they are doing too." Galway Advertiser

"A 15-20 minute drive out of Galway we found a restaurant that served us the best meal of our trip.  The restaurant is small, called Taste Matters, located in Loughrea.  Open for lunch and dinner.  Lunch prices are a steal.  The chef is magnificent.  I had the pasta in tomato sauce, with fresh small tomatoes and salmon steak, my wife had risotto with chicken breast and parmigniano and mozarella cheese. 10E each at lunch.  At dinner the lamb or veal shank at 17E is outstanding.  Really worth the detour, the chef is amazing.  I lived in Italy for a year, then spent another year in the country, off and on.  The pasta and risotto is as good in preparation and ingredients as anywhere in Italy.  Stop her on the way to Closmacnoise abbey ruin or if staying in the Galway area."

"I have travelled quite a bit and eaten in a few places and I can honestly say this is the best. The staff are friendly, the food is good value and it actually tasted incredible. Really hope they keep up the good work. Loved everything about this place!!" TripAdvisor

Galway Advertiser "The salmon was cooked to perfection and the sauce delicious, the salad had a sprinkling of lightly fried onion pieces on top that was delicious plus some good crispy bread. I can honestly say these guys are serious about their food."
