Chef Peter makes sure that your visit to Cafe Matisse is not just a meal, but an amazing dining experience.

The main dining room of this majestic restaurant is known as the "Jewel Box" and with good reason.

It's a room inspired by Henry Matisse, and it is truly elegant. The amazing chandeliers alone are worth a visit to this breathtaking restaurant.
