Inside The Matriarch's majestic iron gates, a swanky garden patio laden with 25 year old olive trees and crystal chandeliers. You are immediately transported to a different place as the interior features are inspired by nineteenth century Parisian countryside. The white marble table tops, the mixtures of soft velvet topped with burning kerosene lanterns and fresh flowers adding a unique ambiance that only The Matriarch has to offer.
As you enter through our romantic garden, behind the old handcrafted Indian doors. A hidden garden Atrium is overflowing with abundance of dramatic lighting fixtures and indoor foliage, and is our largest event space designed to bring world class function and event to life.
The decor of this establishment consists of many architectural elements, that indicate the intense labour of love that went into creating a unique space that offers both a urban sanctuary and romantic industrial feel where guests can relax in a sexy garden oasis.
We set out on a mission to democratise dining by creating a tapestry menu where a decadent selection of dishes get to share around the table which chef/owner Matthew De Wacht has a passion for. Allow our host to find you a cosy table and settle in with the extensive cocktail list, packed with a plethora of delicious options. "Call me a Sex Object" is highly recommended. With the perfect formula of Instagrammable cocktails, sumptuous small bites and alluring decor, The Matriarch knows how to set the mood and believe in the rise of experience economy - the crave for experience that says something unique about you which can later share with your social media followers.
It's time to stop and allow us to transport you back to an era where your experience is grounded by warmth and old fashioned charm!
