We were here for a birthday night out about a year ago and there was around 30 of us. It was great. The food was lovely, the service was excellent and the location is very nice as its practically on the river Mersey.

Travelled to liverpool for a birthday especially to visit matou (for the second time) and was sorely disappointed. The chicken starter was pink and raw. No apologies from management, nothing. We left after the starters as didnt want to risk serious health issues.
