My wife took me to La Matera, she had eaten there a year previously and had been impressed. It was quiet as you would expect on a weeknight in October. I have to agree with the Mrs. I had a great meal at a reasonable price. A really good Argentinian themed restaurant. Reasonably priced and well presented. If you like... More

We arrived on a quiet night so service was fine. The meat translations were confusing. Also a reasonably good piece of meat was covered with onions and other sauces (not necessary). The Guacumole was more white than green meaning too little avocado (and too little taste). But the meat was cooked to order and the wine was good. Prices were... More

1st the good point the service was slow but this is not the fault of the very good waitress who was on her own working about 20+ covers. Without asking when we were seated we were brought bread & flavoured butter (very nice).Which we wrongly thought was complementary as we had not been asked if we wanted it, however when... More

Was there a few months ago with my parents. The place looks cool, the service was very nice and the food was far beyond expectations. My mom said that she had the best steak in her life in this restaurant.

I came here on holiday with my friend and we're finding it hard to find a really satisfying meal then came across this great place. Our waiter was great! Didn't speak much English but really tried to make an effort with us. The white and red sangria was both lovely! Food was great. It's not the cheapest of restaurants but... More

Thought we would try it for lunch and were really not impressed. Staff rude, slow service, weren't given menu del dia menus, food not all that. Expensive off the normal menu. Certainly will not be going again.
