About Matte Black Violet

For a big city dining experience in the heart of Townsville, head to Matte Black Violet on Flinders Street. This new modern dining and fine food restaurant is an eclectic mix of contemporary and professional people looking for a memorable meal in moody surrounds of black leather, neon lighting and a well-stocked bar. From breakfast to dinner, expect creative plates such as a Jenga stack of cherry smoked salmon, crumbled feta, avocado, halloumi and rocket, between tasty tortillas; or perhaps opt for the Chef’s degustation menu with starters like reef fish ceviche, ajo blanco and pickled beetroot. Memorable mains of charred octopus, apple cider onion, spiced mango and smoked olive oil may entice; making sure to leave room for salted chocolate tart, popcorn ice cream and honeycomb shards.

Modern, friendly and exciting
Amazing variety of food and wines and the best cocktails in town.
A place where you can find seasonal goodness like fresh truffles and local delicacies like crocodile on the menu. A must try!

Just simply wow
Food and staff 11/10


The dark, cool vibe creates a mysterious and intriguing atmosphere. We enjoyed a delicious 7 course dinner with the perfect wines to accompany each dish, after dinner we journeyed up the stairs to find the bar, where we indulged in the most delicious cocktails! The best and by far favourite was the millennial home, don’t be fooled by the avocado you won’t regret trying it!


Perfect for a night out
The service is unmatched, the menu is diverse and the cocktails are to die for
Not to mention the carefully crafted atmosphere that makes for a beautiful dining experience
It is the only place I find myself revisiting and if you haven't yet, do yourself a favor and book in
