We loved this restaurant the first time, and had to go back with friends. Just as wonderful the second time. The stuffed peppers are really unique and delicious. Everything is served beautifully and with care. Both servers we had were pleasant and provided great advice. My husband and I do not generally order dessert, but if we do, we share... More

Headed here on a Sunday afternoon to watch some world cup soccer and drink Sangria. They have a lovely patio in the back with a tv screen, where we watched the game, and we enjoyed the white sangria. A large pitchers is about 5 glasses.

Mompou is a delight with Brazilian rhythms and an amazing array of small and large plates you cannot go wrong. We always start off with a cocktail and a few small plates and see where the moods take us. The background music is a mix of live and recorded fare but always setting a chill ambiance for the crowd. We've... More

Does anyone know that Frederic Mompou was a wonderful Spanish/Catalan Composer of piano music who lived until not long ago? I do because I am a piano player, and all I needed was one recommendation to go there and explore...the food! Of course in Spain, tapas are free when you order your beer or whatever, I still don't know how... More

We have visited Mompou with our company many times, including holiday dinner in the private room downstairs. It never disappoints! Friendly and helpful staff are always there to greet us. Delicious tapas (best spanish sausage around!) and great drinks! Highly recommended if you are visiting Newark!

A long overdue visit to Newark, New Jersey, home of my birth, and public schooling for College. Forty (40 ) years had elapsed. Reclaiming earlier years Ferry Street food was a most! I entered Mompou...Steve, the owner is "THE BEST". We ate, drank, reminisced, Crab Salad, Grilled octopus, & Lamb Chops are " HEAVENLY " .

After visiting the Newark Museum, ten friends gathered at this trendy tapas bar in the Ironbound section of Newark. Parking is a premium, but it is a short walk from Penn Station-Newark. Our servers were excellent, recommending various tapas to try. Our favorites were the PIQUILLO RELLENOS, the ALBONDIGAS DE POLLO, and the TXISTORRA. The chorizo tapas was rather pedestrian... More

Just a great date place for Tapas style eating. The decor is trendy and the food is great. I had the tuna sashimi salad which was excellent. We also had two types of grilled shrimp and they where excellent also. Great place to go before a Devils hockey game. You can get there before the rush and leave in plenty... More

We had Australian bass with vegetables and that was done perfect - price 18USD, service just like it should be. Worth going!
