We had dinner that actually had not very good start : we had to wait while there were tables free (waitress not experienced enough in having overview). Food was well served, yet fish was not really fresh and was very small piece of it. For a market fish disappointing in texture and taste. Stak that my wife had as well... More

The service and food is fantastic. The area we were seated was dimly lit, which made it difficult for old eyes to see the menu. Very romantic however.

Good food selection. Reasonable pricing. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the outdoor area too. Booked for a Sunday brunch with grand daughter, teenagers, 30's & 40's +. Our group included vegetarians too. Everyone came away happy.

I've been here when it was great so took my friend from out of town for a very mediocre meal. Expensive and second rate. Flavours strange and I like most things.

Went to Matterhorn for my birthday and was placed right in front of the fireplace which was really nice. Happy classy atmosphere. Service was prompt and the food was divine. When the food first came out it looked like it wasn't going to be enough, however by the end of the night we were quite full! Everything was cooked well... More

Food was fine, environment a bit dark and claustrophobic, no windows in area we were in , just a big wall. Staff friendly but altogether not enough to warrant my repeat custom.
