I've been to Matterhorn several times, from brunch, to drinks to dinner and it never disappoints. The staff and food are all really great and I like that it's set far back from the craziness of Cuba Street.

Did not get a chance to enjoy their bar - recommend arriving 15 minutes early to experience their bar area, it is beautiful. Good food although smaller portions for cost. Great for dinner!
