“Foodies will have an orgasm!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

An exquisite gourmet experience you won't forget!

Influenced by his work with Internationally acclaimed Chef Susur Lee (also known from Iron Chef America), Chef Matteo has found perfection! While every dish is bursting with flavor and texture, it's not overdone, so each ingredient can have its moment in the spotlight. Your mouth will explode, with every bite a new indulgent experience.

Location is odd (Shopper's Drug Mart plaza), but the restaurant has a private courtyard so the view and ambience is artistic and a bit eccentric. Not at all pretentious. To truly enjoy the culinary experience, be prepared to spend @ $200 per person (well worth every penny!). We go to Blacktree for every special occasion and can never get tired of it.

“Another awesome meal at Black Tree”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Second time here and brought friends along who are definitely foodies, so the expectations were high! Once again Matteo delivered ona fantastic dining and culinary experience. Is it cheap - no. Is the location the best - no. Was the food incredible - yes!

“Best in the world”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Matteo is a true genius. We've eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world and Blacktree is one of our favourites.

We try to to go once per month to sample the ever changing menu. Service is always excellent.

“Pricey but worth EVERY penny!”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

My boyfriend and I first went to the restaurant last year. I liked the cozy atmosphere, wonderful wait staff and interesting decor. I find eating at Blacktree is like waking from a good dream. You are left with nice feelings but can't really remember what the dream was about. I can't tell you all the ingredients in the dishes I had but I can say that every dish was so masterly put together it made my taste buds sing! I especially appreciate that Chef Matteo makes it a point to take reservations himself and usually tries to get out to the dining room to say hello to all his diners. If you are looking for an upscale treat, don't let the location fool you - his food is second to none!
