    Have been dining at Matteos for twenty years and it’s still great food and service. Despite a few changes in chefs over the years , it has remained one of my favourites - consistently good

    The restaurant was excellent in all aspects, location, atmosphere, service ,food and wine were all magnificent. The range and cost of wine was broad, allowing reasonable wine choices, unlike many similar venues.

    The atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. The service was excellent and not over the top. The wine choices were excellent and the price was reasonable. The food was excellent but we found the serves too large in the degustation menu.

    Lovely atmosphere with great service and absolutely delicious menu. The express lunch menu and deal is excellent value, although we couldn’t resist adding extras, the large mirrors allowed both of us to enjoy the views outside, the wait staff were efficient and gave us just the right amount of attention. Great offerings so the chef should be congratulated.
