An exciting little Mexican joint. Great live music and plenty of drinks to choose from. The special the night we went was Molcajete and if they have it I highly recommend it.

Mateo's seems to be designed as an American/Mexican eater which is fair enough. The food itself was bland, expensive and the waiting staff tried to upsell everything which for me isn't very Mexican. It had no charm or good vibes which I've seen all over...More

I'm not Mateo's but I'm pretty sure you just turn up. Only a few restaurants are so fancy you have to book in advance (read:Hartwood but there are so many other really cool places around)!
