Good meat and reasonable prices!

I came here on holiday with my friend and we're finding it hard to find a really satisfying meal then came across this great place. Our waiter was great! Didn't speak much English but really tried to make an effort with us. The white and red sangria was both lovely! Food was great. It's not the cheapest of restaurants but... More

Thought we would try it for lunch and were really not impressed. Staff rude, slow service, weren't given menu del dia menus, food not all that. Expensive off the normal menu. Certainly will not be going again.

The choice on the menu was very good, but being on a Groupon Couon we were limited with choice. What we had though was fine.... More

Meat was very good, service friendly. Th place is simple and not the most cosy or romantic you visited, but if... More

An early evening visit for a birthday meal at La Matera was a wonderful evening. The food was excellent, the service fantastic, the restaurant was amazing. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the desserts fabulous. This is a must restaurant to visit in Santa Pola. I will definitely be back on my next visit to Spain and my parents... More

Visited La Matera 3 times last week between 19th to 24th December 2014. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Would recommend the entrecote, rib eye and sirloin steaks. Good value too.

Great steaks and lovely veg too!! Friendly staff considering my Spanish is very poor! Portions generous and decent veg sometimes hard to come by in local restaurants in my experience.
