La Matera was my first introduction to eating out in Guadalajara, and it set a high bar for a week-long stay, which included a second visit. Friendly service (in English/Spanish), nice atmosphere inside and out, good ambiance music (if you like Thievery Corporation, and the like), and of course, really good food. My favorites were the grilled octopus (best octopus... More

This to us seemed like a real Argentinean Grill in Guadalajara, even some waiters are Argentinean. “El Vacio” a juicy beef cut is delicious, the portions, it’s all you need for dinner, superb cook. Lastima that our trip ended to soon!

Have eaten here 3 times in the last couple of years. Only ever had steak. Each time has been cooked to perfection, rosemary potatoes are excellent. Portions are very big and I've never been able to manage a desert. Staff are friendly and helpful. I always eat here when in Guadalajara.

Suggestive place and local people. I suggest to eat Entraña ... Beautiful! Even if you stay in Guadalajara a short time, you must eat there, at least one time!

One of the best grills in town. Always good food, good quality, good service and the exact point of cooking for your meat. Good appetizers and usually great atmosphere. Make reservation and be patient if your table is not ready.

We have reservations for this past weekend but never made it into the restaurant because the valet was the worst I have ever experienced. When we expressed concern about the security of our vehicle the valet proceeded to ridicule us with, "I have driven better cars than this!" Guess driving a BMW in Guadalajara is too low-brow. My boyfriend thereafter... More

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
