The atmosphere in the place is fantastic. It's located in a terrace (Guadalajara has good weather all year). I was here for business and we had a great time. Service was a little slow, but OK. We had several steaks to share. They were cooked to the ordered term (which is unusual in Mexico... it is very common for meat... More

This place is a must for meat lovers, they have a great environment, good service and the food is high quality. I went there on a business meeting and we were seated on the outside, the weather was great by the way. Service is fast and they are good at making suggestions and presenting you the different meat cuts. And... More

I have eaten at La Matera at least five times in the past several years most recently Tuesday night. What I like here is the variety and good service. For whatever reason, we were not in the mood for steak. So we had a chistorra app, pasta w squid ink, shrimp, some salad, and quite a bit if tequila. It... More

One of the best medium raw meat ever eaten. Service was fast (probably because of off season visit) and friendly. The place is expensive - cannot deny that, but because of the tasty food quality, it is not that significant. Highly recommended!

as always a visit to la matera for their bife de lomo with mash potatos was very tasty. I usually make my first stop at plaza andares to purchase my vip cine tickets for the afternoon show then I head over to la matera for the best lunch/dinner in town. I go for an early lunch at 1pm for those... More

I'm currently on a protein restricted diet so I wasn't crazy about going to an Argentinian restaurant if I wasn't going to be able to enjoy a nice cut of meat. Well I ordered the artichoke and palmito salad along with a pesto spinach ravioli. It was wonderful. I was not dissapointed at all. Tiramisu was good too. Service was... More

This restaurant has been here in this location for at least 14 years. My first meal was back in 1999 and I had a "Churrasco" and I did not like it. It did not compare to "La Estancia Gaucha" located in the same city in Ninos Heroes. Well needless to say I have been to La Matera approx 4 times... More
