A new belgian restaurant just opened at Arabian Ranches. It is attached to the Arabian Ranches golf club so it is better to search for the Arabian Ranches Golf Club as you will find lot of sign boards at Arabian ranches directing you to the golf club and you should find this new European styled restaurant. It’s the first Belgian all day dining concept. Their vision is to get to you an exposure to their local food culture in Belgium.
The inside of Maison Mathis is as elegant as the outside with a stunning white on white interior with a hand laid tile floor in the belgian tradition and several distinct seating areas. You can opt to dine inside or outside facing the beautiful golf view overlooking the 9th hole of the neighboring golf course. Their club chairs were big and comfortable. They’ve got a lovely play area for your kids too.
They put lot of emphasize on their breads. You will find their bakery on the right once you enter Maison Mathis. Their breads are fresh and homemade. They strongly believe they make the best breads in town and they make different types of it so don’t forget to try them while you are there.
Opening hours : 7am to 2am
The official opening of Maison Mathis was held at night so the beautiful golf view got covered. Hence i revisited Maison Mathis once again on friday so i could show you some of their good views from the restaurant. When i went on friday i noticed one thing. The restaurant was mainly filled by golfers at that time and their kids enjoying the swing and slide while some of them were actually playing golf very seriously and if you don’t play golf like me, you would probably start playing golf once you eat here regularly :p
So here I am at the official opening night of Maison Mathis at Arabian Ranches. They were basically showing off their cooking skills and quality by indulging us in little forms of their delicious menu. There were too many items I tried that night and it was difficult for me to recall names of all of it.
From many of their items I ate, some of them really caught my attention like the quality of beef in the beef burger was fantastic. Really good beef and even my friend who came along enjoyed it very much. Their smoked duck with beetroot and nuts was lovely too. I never would have ordered by name but once I tried it, I kept hunting for it in the crowd.
I didn’t find any fish as such but they did have seafood items such as salmon, prawns and oyster. The European shrimp cocktail with grey shrimp was really tasty from that list.
You can also buy their pastries from their bakery shop(The same place where you find their breads). I enjoyed all of it, nothing to complaint about. I ate quite a bit of their Mini chocolate brownie, fruit tart and Eclairs as I couldn’t settle with just one of each.
