“Very good food in a very nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

One of the nicests restaurants in the Polanco Area.

The food is very good, try the Tomato cream, is GREAT!!!!

Also the desserts are VERY good.

They have a very small list wine.

The service is very good.

The terrace is great for lunch.

Enjoy visiting the Concept store: Common People.

“Pleasant evening In Emilo Castelar Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

After an evening stroll in the Park, my wife and I were looking for a nice place to sit and have a glass of wine. We found Le Mat directly across the road and were attracted by its large covered patio. We decided to stay for dinner. Beautiful location but with average food and service. Nothing to really complain about, but definately nothing to rave about either. If I went back, I would stick to the appetizers.

“Excellent wine and small dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Walking by Emilio Castelar park in polanco, this is a place you have to stop by and see, it looks like a giant house and shop, and it actually is.

The restaurant has an amazing terrace across the park and its well served and fully staffed. Their wine selection is quite good and you should definately try the small hamburguers as a startup plate.

Creme brulee amazing!!

“Excellent terrace in front of a beautiful park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is a beautiful terrace just in front of Parque Linconl in Polanco.
You can enjoy the place even when it rains because the terrace is covered with sliding roof.
The desserts are incredible, Chai Crème brûlée or Ginger Custard.
Don't forget to try the duck served over mashed yams, it's amazing!!!

“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 ;)
