Matou, Liverpool

11 August, 2020

Open for more than a decade, it's time to try out the restaurant with one of the best views on Merseyside. 

Matou is located on Liverpool’s waterfront above the Ferry Terminal and displays a modern design with indoor dining overlooking the River Mersey. With awe-inspiring views of the city across its cocktail bar and lounge, it's no wonder this place is a popular spot for locals living in the centre, and tourists looking for the trendiest places to visit.

The restaurant cooks up a storm of signature dishes from the Far East including, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Japan. Inside the stylish dining room filled with Pan Asian flavours, you’ll find floor to ceiling glass panes displaying panoramic views across the water, which will often cause a ruckus when diners come to choose their seats, especially at night, as the sun sets and the skyline becomes filled with spectacular lights. 

Once you’ve agreed on the seating plan, you can start to take in the relaxing music and soft ambience of the dining area. Delve into delicious satay skewers with spiced meats that are charred to perfection, or appreciate the delicate vegetable tempura that will accompany any meal. Savour every bite of exotic food, every sip of classic cocktails, and relish the stunning backdrop as you celebrate with loved ones, family or friends.

If you don’t fancy something to eat, perhaps the sophisticated bar area and lounge can provide a place to meet with colleagues after work, or friends at the weekend for an evening filled with cocktails and maybe the odd appetiser or sharing platter along the way. The exclusive lounge area is also great for special events and private functions. 

"Matou is a contemporary Pan Asian restaurant located in a privileged position overlooking the vibrant waterfront and cityscape, giving guests the ultimate fine dining experience.”

This pleasant and vibrant dining experience would not be complete without an elegant rooftop bar. Perfect for a spot of lunch in the sun or drinks with a view as you take in the prestigious buildings of the city's centre complete with the iconic Liver Birds. The outside terrace alone can cater for over 300 people, and the inside area holds another 120 guests, making it the ultimate space for special events.

With breath-taking views of the city’s skyline and modern new developments listed by property specialists RWinvest, who describe the outstanding architecture and design combined with innovation and creativity as a way to redefine the city’s hotspot waterfront district into a multi-use destination for business, residential and leisure facilities alike.

Once you've overindulged in food and drinks, you may wish to stay somewhere close by if you're not continuing the night in Liverpool's lavish nightclubs and bars. The Hilton Liverpool holds prime location just a few steps away from Matou in the heart of the city, and faces onto the Albert Dock so you can continue the evening on their seasonal terrace looking out at the hustle and bustle of the city.
