Whenever we go to Zaragoza, we like to have dinner in La Matilde. Never before we went during Summer, when they offer less possibilities à la carte. We opted for a menu of 32.50€/person which includes aperitive, starter, fish dish, meat dish and dessert. All dishes are very well prepared, with first class basic material, and the service is impeccable.... More

Attentive service with detailed explanations of the courses. 5 courses for 38.5 euro with amuse bouches and petits fours. Unusual vichysoisse of borage(??) which tasted very healthy but not necessarily somehting I'd want to eat again . The main fish course of hake with clams and the steak were excellent. It is a small restaurant with no external seating but... More

We tried to order ala carte but the waiter decided on his own to bring us a number of other courses. After the third course we realized what was happening. While the food was good it does not measure up to the world famous restaurants in New York, Paris, Barcelona etc. The pairing of the sauces to the dishes seemed... More

We went here based on the TripAdviser recommendations. Importantly, the service is very good. The owner is friendly and informative and speaks English well. However, I thought the food was awful. We had the 40€ degustation. There was a cod dish that was hideously salty. On another dish, one of the items had clearly been reheated in a microwave and... More

For what it was, it's a waste of money. I know good restaurants having dined in some of the finest in the world and this is not one of them. The best part of the night was the wine which I picked 'Muga Reserva'. If you have an open mind and don't mind being given a menu then told the... More

We went there for lunch on Thursday after getting recomendations from 5!!! people on the local market. It was off peak time so we were the only guests. We got a nice central table and full attention from brothers Puyuelo (hint - local people go there for late dinner, so better go there at lunch). If you have time try... More

It seems a little, obvious to be reviewing an already top-rated restaurant, but La Matilde is really a bit special. You probably have to do it their way, since you are pushed to take the Chef's special at €44, but then it is very well worth taking (and they do let you pick your main course). The food is rich...

My wife and I were visiting Zaragoza with a friend of ours. It was our friends birthday so I chose this restaurant. Boy are we all glad that I did. The food preparation, the food itself, the wine, and Luis, one of the owners, were all simply amazing. We all ordered the chef's special where he prepared different courses for... More

This is my favourite reastaurant. I really like the manners of the owners that love to help you choosing the best food possible. Quality is at maximum level. Usually you choos a main dish and the owner gives you everything else choosing what better could come together with it. Wine sommelier, there is a great choice among the best spanish... More
