This restaurant is located in a nice old house on Peninsula Road. Nice cosy environment and friendly service. Unfortunately, both my wife and I found the entrees rather bland - they just did'nt have freshness and taste that we expected. Nice seafood chowder though

Visited Matterson House fifteen years ago and the food was great then. We went again and nothing has changed. This is a great restaurant for a quiet relaxed meal in a cosy setting with good food and good bc wines.

Good service and excellent food. Very homely restaurant with a good choice of local food. Restaurant is fairly small so would recommend booking to ensure getting a table.

This review is only based on one meal, poached salmon, which did not meet my expectations based on previous reviews of this restaurant. In short, I had a mediocre meal at a hefty price.

The Matterson House is such a quaint little old house, you can almost feel the history when you walk in. My husband and I had a lovely dinner here and the portions were more than fair. Matterson House is owned by a husband and wife...More
