“Nice Place, normal food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The location and the setting is really nice.

The service was not that good even when I was there with a regular customer.

Food was good but not outstanding, perhaps I need a second try, still it is not one of those places I would try to go back really quick.

Besides Polanco is always full of great Restaurants that don´t need second chances ;)

“beautiful and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I love this place, first, the location is amazing, specially on a sunny day, you have the park right in front, with kids on bikes and roller skates, people walking their dogs.
The service is really good, but the food is outstanding!. The grilled artichoke, mini hamburgers, the crab legs, everything is really good, have a leechy margarita. The desserts are yummy also

“Pretty location for a drink, go elsewhere for food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

We were wandering aimlessly around Polanco, an area that has an abundance of many extremely good restaurants, when we came upon Le Mat which my daughter had heard about and as the pretty terrace over-looked a park and the weather was perfect so we decided to stop and eat. The menu reads very well, slightly pretentious comfort food, but the execution was just not there, several dishes were either luke warm, salty, dry and re-heated and for what we had: EXPENSIVE. We have found a constant problem over the years in restaurants spending all their money on location or decoration and not spending it where it needs spending: IN THE KITCHEN !!!
