Small but high quality artisan food. Local produce and excellent selection of wine. We were both really pleased with the food and price also.

Second time in 6 weeks to dine at Taste Matters. And both times we came away planning our next visit! Service was excellent, decor nice but it felt like an upmarket cafe. Toilets spotless. Background music was perfect but we do like our Cuban music!...More
