First off, the food was excellent. Good quality ingredients well cooked and presented. The lobster and prawn linguine had good sized pieces of lobster and prawns and the flavours weren't drowned by the sauce. Very good! Sadly, there were only 6 diners over the 90 minutes we were there so the ambience was not great with an eerie echo around... More

My wife, 7 week old son and I decided to pop into HiA for a little bimble and a spot of lunch. Having completed a quick visual recon mission on all the possible locations, we were drawn to the homely look and feel of this place, as well as the apparent garden eluded to on the sandwich board at the...

my third visit to this restaurant I generally avoid Henley in Arden at night because the parking is a nightmare. Matricardis bar has a nice homely feel to it, all comfortable soft furnishings, newspapers and beams, unfortunately the restaurant lacks most of these qualities, it's just a little like a barn, a big squarish room with tables arranged fairly symmetrically....

I go to the Matricardis quite often and the bar area is lovely, service is great and welcoming. My last visit though was a real disappointment. The main restaurant is cold, with no ambience and really plain. It is not in keeping with the bar area. Definitely a place I would go if I can sit in the bar but... More

The last time we visited this restaurant was about 2 years ago when we enjoyed an excellent lunch in a quiet atmosphere. This time it coincided with the Music Festival in Henley on Bank Holiday Saturday.We booked a table for the evening and found the place packed with revelers having a great time with music provided by a group performing...

My partner and I ate in Matricardi's following a walk around around the countryside near Henley. We just made it in for the lunch menu (stops at 4pm). There is a wide selection to chose from. We ordered starters of sausage in honey mustard and hand made nachos off of the Tapas menu. The sausages were particulary nice. For mains... More

Popped into to check this place out for a coffee. The first visit was great & the coffees were prepared with care & attention by a very professional & welcoming waiter. There was a small biscotti on the saucer which was delicious. We returned the following weekend, tempted to perhaps arrange a visit combining lunch or dinner. The experience this... More

This seems to place to be seen in when drinking in Henley. We did not experience the reason why it is favoured by the trendy crowd. Make sure you wait for your change as well!

Had dinner last night with my family and the food was fantastic and service very good. Great choice for little people and offers a small or large portion of pasta dishes. I had sea bass and it was amazing.
