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

I went there with my friend during their happy hour, the staff is friendly, the bartender was cool and the Margaritas were a delish! The place itself is beautiful and clean, with paintings all over the all. Great atmosphere!

Had a successful presentation recently at Mompou and the attendees enjoyed everything about the place. The food, the service and the drinks were well received. The downstairs cellar made for an intimate and private presentation of up to 20 with few noises from the rest of the place upstairs. Recommended for any private functions

This is a popular local spot to meet friends after work. They have a good happy hour but sometimes it can get to noisy to hear your companions, especially on the live music evenings. The garden room is outdoors but more like a courtyard, not many plants.

I have come here with friends and family over the last couple of years and everything the food is delicious and always cooked perfectly. Today I had the flank steak with potatoes and spinach. The sauce was amazing and I dipped my bread in it . They had the doors opened in the front and weather was perfect day. Sangria... More

We had fun coming here with family one evening. We had no idea that it was flamenco night so that was a very pleasant surprise to us! The drinks were excellent, the service was friendly and efficient, the food was great. This is why we keep coming back. Enjoy your tapas with flamenco!
