We visited for lunch yesterday after walking past over the last few years. Even though quiet, the service was excellent, wasn't rushed and was unobtrusive. The food was of a very high standard, beautifully cooked and nicely presented. Usually with a set menu you get a pitifully small drink, but both the glass of red wine and beer were unusually...

we have eaten in this restaurant today. The lunch took 2 and a half hours. The meat and chorizos were excellent. But the sauce Sauer and the grilled vegetable boiled. The maid was good and very sorry that the kitchen could not follow. You will have a better choice with Patagonia steak house.

First visit and very impressed. Great location overlooking the beach. Warm welcome from the Argentinean owner who was very helpful with steak and wine choices. The set menu options are very good value for money but I chose from the alacarte menu as I fancied a steak. The Robert was perfectly cooked and delicious. Will definitely visit again.

This restaurant really does have it all, lovely decor, gorgeous views of the sea, relaxing ambience, friendly staff, good service, fair prices but above all terrific food especially the fillet steak. This was my second visit after visiting a few weeks ago for the €18 set lunch menu which is outstanding value for money. This time a group of 7... More

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at La Matera yesterday evening. The food was superb and bursting with flavour and freshness. The wine list perfectly accompanied the main menu and the Rioja we ordered delivered a full fruity taste. All of this was enjoyed in a warm comfortable setting served by Kiko who looked after our every need. We left happy... More

The chef deserves much credit. Argentina style cuisine, generous portions, meat and accompaniments beautifully cooked. Very pleasant decor, and service second to none (even a free bottle of Cava for our birthday girl!). Highly recommended, we'll be back!

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
