After receiving a tip that EL MATADOR was a good restaurant, we decided to give it a try....and are we ever happy we did! When we arrived, we were the only diners there and wondered if we had made a mistake!! After tasting our dinner, we knew that we had found a very special place and that other travelers need to know about it!
The restaurant has great ambiance, the service was great and very professional, but best of all, the food was fabulous. We watched the chef and former matador personally prepare our dinner of "Chateaubriand" with handmade pasta and perfectly cooked vegetables. I might add that the dinner was also beautifully presented on the plate. Owner, Chef and Matador, Pablo Velez also visited with us at our table making it a night to remember. We visit San Jose often and we will always make a point of going back to EL MATADOR!
