Good Mood Cafe Groupon Coupon

We ate on a Groupon Coupon at the Good Mood Cafe which is next door to La Matera and owned by the same people. The staff were really friendly and the food was very good. 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.... read more

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.

Argentinean place, meat based menu (of course!). Children got their checken skewers quickly which was very good - and the kids menu included also a drink and an ice cream for the very reasonable price of 9 Euro 50. 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.

As this is one of our top five restaurants in SantaPola it is hardly surprising that we are back again, Hard to understand the negative comments from others, just ask and the staff are ever eager to please. maybe there are professional moaners at work, maybe from rival establishments that just cant compete !!!

Can't believe this Restaurant is rated number 5 on the Tripadvisor. Argentinan food. Very, very poor service! Plates taken from customer before customer is finished 1st course. Mixed meats full of bone and fatty. Worst meal in Santa Pola. Don't understand high tripadvisor rating.

Dear Hathor06 I`m sorry you had this impression on our service, which is not normal. We are very proud with our place and work and we try every day to keep quality and improve. Your strong comment will indeed make us work harder for it. You had our basic and cheapest menu. This is not an excuse for us. Mistakes... More
