We had dinner at Matties and were pleased with the food, but as the title says, you could not carry on a conversation across the table without shouting. It's the new paradigm for restaurants, it seems, but no place should bill themselves as a 'romantic'...More

The food here could be more varied, but the atmosphere was amazing. There are peacocks wandering around the property which is very cool. One of the best bloody mary's I have ever had. Fantastic selection of wines/drinks. I just thought that the menu could have...More
