I was here on an overnight for SWA. I didn't know what to expect, but was very surprised at the quality and price. Best hotel food I have had in my career.

Great food, wonderful service, beautiful ambience. Having travelled to MB and stayed at the Ayres Manhattan Beach many, many times, Matisse Restaurant makes this special hotel feel like home away from home. When traveling alone, I love having dinner at the Matisse Bar. Great people!

Located in the Ayres hotel I was staying at, me and the wife decided to stay and not drive out the Saturday night we were there.

My family had a great breakfast at the Matisse Restaurant in the Ayres Hotel Manhattan Beach. The food was cooked perfectly and they even had a kids breakfast which was as big as our meals. We would definitely eat there again. :)

Thank Nikki R
