Matteo's is the dapper, slightly eccentric aristocrat of Melbourne fine dining. A deluxe interior with purple chairs, chandeliers and gilt mirrors promises indulgence and refinement, but the menu shirks the safe European fare one might expect in such an elegant environment, opting for more flamboyant Asian fusion. That prosaic Australian-Chinese dish, lemon chicken is given a different take at Matteo's, the breast meat fried Japanese Karaage style and served on a bed of coconut rice coated in lemongrass sauce.
Matteo’s will be closed for its annual Easter break from Good Friday 25th until Easter Monday 28th March 2016.
We will reopen for dinner on Tuesday 29th March 2016 [with normal trading hours thereafter].
