Open flames, hot coals, incredible local produce

Matilda is a visual and sensory journey, and a true labour of love for me – it’s named after my daughter, after all. The kitchen is fuelled by open fire and hot coals, delivering great food, strong design and a feeling of comfort and warmth.

The restaurant is a bit more relaxed than my usual style of cooking. It’s somewhere guests can visit often and be guaranteed a local piece of meat cooked exceptionally well over live flames and open grills and paired with seasonal produce.

Being across the road from the Botanic Gardens, designers Projects of Imagination have brought the space to life by incorporating elements of earth, fire, nature and water into the interior of the space.
