When one chooses a restaurant for a special occasion, it's not just the food that's matter, it's the ambience, the service and the hospitality that the restaurant offers. My experience with this restaurant was quite disappointing! Food was good, and that's it! We arrived late because of the bad traffic, the guy whom led us to the table made a... More

The setting of the restaurant was really cosy and pretty inviting, it certainly had the feel of a fine dining restaurant. The service was well presented, very courteous and knowledgeable about wine. The food, however, didn’t really bowl us over, it was exceptional quality but not on par with what we have had elsewhere. Overall it was a pleasant dinner... More

I'd been to Matteo's on a number of occasions for functions a few years ago and the food was excellent. However, last night's meal was disappointing. We ordered the oysters done 5 ways - the deep fried one was beautiful but the 'kilpatrick' one was overly sweet and drowned out the oyster. Similarly, the oyster shot was in an overly... More

Our trips to Melbourne tend to have a food focus and after reading reviews and with melbournian friends mention matteos as there special annual anniversary dinner location we thought we'd give it a try. We went for the a la carte option and ordered the quail and prawn ravioli both of which were lovely and very enoyable. We followed this... More

Made a reservation for a special occasion. This was our first visit and everything was perfect. The Ambiance, the service and the food was exceptional. The a la carte menu had a good choice. Acknowledgment by the waiters for the birthday, was nice. We weren't just another table, having dinner.

This was a return visit to Matteo's and it again scored highly with us. It was surprisingly empty when we had lunch there yesterday but still exuded class and professionalism in both service and meal preparation and presentation. We opted for the $49 Express Lunch menu - choice of three entrees and four mains - for entrees we chose the... More

My wife took me here for my birthday as I love degustation meals where you get to try the best from the kitchen! We had a great meal with 5 courses and matched wines. My wife being a vegeterian, loved the dishes she was given also, which is very important...
