It's been awhile since I ate at a restaurant that excited me enough to log a new review. Found it in Mompou! Newark's Ironbound District has become a foodie destination. It's a vibrant neighborhood that Newark, determined to refresh its identity, deserves. I've now been to Mompou twice, and both times were wonderful. I've had a selection of tapas both... More

Really great find while trying to determine non airport dining options in Newark. I had lunch with two colleagues; we shared a wide variety of tapas dishes that were well executed. Grilled octopus, bacon wrapped dates and the chicken meatballs were standouts. Would definitely visit again if not wanting to go into Manhattan.

We went for lunch and it wasn't very busy, service was expectedly great. They have a quaint outdoor patio in the back that we look forward to enjoying when the temps rise. Food was all very good. The spiced olive oil they serve with the yummy bread, although salty was addicting!

Several of my work colleagues along with someone we wished to hire had dinner at Mompou, If you arrive earlier for dinner, perhaps by 5 PM, you might actually be able to park right on Ferry St and in front of or very near to the restaurant. There is a good selection of drinks and we ordered from the tapas... More

Nice cafe in the Ironbound section of Newark. They offer Portugese Cuisine and the food is delicious.

This is my go-to place in the Ironbound. The decor is great, the staff good, but it's the food I come back for. Always something different from the other Spanish-Portuguese places in the area. If you are there for warm weather, you must sit outside in the back or the restaurant. You don't feel like you are in Newark anymore.

The tapas, sangria and desserts at Mompou are always really good. I have had business lunches, business dinners and personal dinners at Mompou and always enjoyed the wonderful variety and quality of their small plates. The tres leches cake is one of my favorite desserts anywhere. The service is also really lovely and your server will take your tapas order... More
