Matteo’s used to be a regular but first visit for many years. I’m pleased I went. We had a $49 express lunch. The menu is tight but very interesting. Had an excellent agnolotti pasta with nettles. The duck main with coconut rice was great. Finished off with a very good Shiraz meant a wonderful light lunch.

We were fortunate enough to book the remaining seats to Matteo’s 25th anniversary feast and Italian wine match dinner . The antipasti which was a tasting plate of 5 different entrees was divine. I loved each one . The next dish of river prawn was delicious. Farm Quail wrapped in bacon was slightly salty but inside was still juicy . By the 4th dish of braised veal I was already too full . What made a great night was the wines that were perfectly matched. Maximum points to the sommelier who was funny and so knowledgable. A beautiful , modern restaurant.

went to the restuarant with family group. Were seated in the 'private room' which was ok, but then the service diasppeared. Booking was 12.30 - didn't get out entree until 1.20pm and mains arrived at 3.40pm. When i enquired what the delay was, the waiter didn't know. When approached the manager, i was told they had a big party of 60 in the back to deal with.
Not my problem guys. You would have known the size of the catering requirements well in advance so you would have had ample opportunity to deal with it.
No love shown whatsoever.
And finally, what leaves a sour taste in my mouth is my 2 grandchildren who are both under 7 were charged $95/head (same as adult cost for set menu) despite the fact that all they had was a small plate of pasta.
a missed opportunity by Matteo.

Had a sensational family long lunch on Sunday 4 August. Food outstanding - and the staff could not have been more helpful. A lovely way to celebrate our twins turning 21 - BYO a bonus as well. We took a couple of special wines to celebrate the occasion.

We recently experienced a wonderful afternoon for the Celebration of a special birthday for my husband. From the moment we entered the fabulous Courtyard which was warm with a feeling of intimacy we knew we and our guests would experience a wonderful time. We were not disappointed in any way, the room size was perfect for our 32 guests though it can easily be expanded if required for larger numbers. We chose to have a casual afternoon which included incredible Matteo's Canape's both cold and hot. Semi-cured Hiramasa Kingfish, Fraser Island spanner crab and truffled mushroom pithivier (pasties). These three were my favourites. There was a lot of food of an incredible standard.
The staff were amazing, obviously we would like to congratulate the Chef and his staff and a special thank you to Tim who was so obliging and helpful on the day. Our thanks also got to Sarah who helped with organisation prior to our Celebration.
Matteo's is a wonderful Restaurant, Wedding and Special Occasion Venue.
Matteo's again lived up to its extremely high standards and was faultless in all aspects.
Thank you Matteo's we highly recommend your Venue.
