Taste Matters is a cosy little dining room situated at the west end of Loughrea town, just 30 minutes from Galway city. We are two friends, Jirka in the front of house and Michal in the kitchen. Together with our small team we serve top quality food in a casual setting.
is a fusion of various cuisines and the cooking is traditional with a modern twist. Our inspiration comes from anywhere. As our name suggests, taste matters to us and our emphasis is on flavour.
We use the best and freshest local and organic ingredients. Our meat comes from Loughrea, the fish from Galway and our vegetables come from organic farms in Loughrea, Athenry and Galway. Mike prepares these great ingredients with skill and care. He is very passionate about his cooking and you can almost taste that in his food.
Jirka put together a compact list with a variety of natural, organic and biodynamic wines sourced from dedicated and knowledgeable suppliers. There are some lovely craft beers and ciders on offer as well.
We like to support ‘local’, from vegetable farmers and butchers, through accountants and graphic designers, to painters and musicians, and they support us back with their best produce and work.
