Great food, wonderful service, beautiful ambience. Having travelled to MB and stayed at the Ayres Manhattan Beach many, many times, Matisse Restaurant makes this special hotel feel like home away from home. When traveling alone, I love having dinner at the Matisse Bar. Great people!

My family had a great breakfast at the Matisse Restaurant in the Ayres Hotel Manhattan Beach. The food was cooked perfectly and they even had a kids breakfast which was as big as our meals. We would definitely eat there again. :)
