An urban oasis
Stepping off Masters Street and through the iron gates into a garden oasis, I knew this restaurant was something special. It felt like a world away from the hustle and bustle of Newstead.
The Matriarch is a newly opened cocktail garden and restaurant inspired by the nineteenth-century Parisian countryside. With a garden patio and the indoor atrium, there are plenty of areas to soak up the ambience. The garden patio is delightful with its 25 year old olive trees and chandeliers.
