We loved this restaurant the first time, and had to go back with friends. Just as wonderful the second time. The stuffed peppers are really unique and delicious. Everything is served beautifully and with care. Both servers we had were pleasant and provided great advice. My husband and I do not generally order dessert, but if we do, we share something. But after sharing their coconut flan at a first visit, we had to each get our own the second time. It is that amazing!

Headed here on a Sunday afternoon to watch some world cup soccer and drink Sangria. They have a lovely patio in the back with a tv screen, where we watched the game, and we enjoyed the white sangria. A large pitchers is about 5 glasses.

Mompou is a delight with Brazilian rhythms and an amazing array of small and large plates you cannot go wrong. We always start off with a cocktail and a few small plates and see where the moods take us.

The background music is a mix of live and recorded fare but always setting a chill ambiance for the crowd.

We've been there as a couple and with friends and have found the wait staff to be professional and relaxed. You can control the pacing of the meal if you like or leave it to the kitchen but either way you wont leave hungry.

If you remember, order the lamb chops and you'll not be disappointed. Although my experience has been whatever is ordered will be delicious.

Does anyone know that Frederic Mompou was a wonderful Spanish/Catalan Composer of piano music who lived until not long ago? I do because I am a piano player, and all I needed was one recommendation to go there and explore...the food! Of course in Spain, tapas are free when you order your beer or whatever, I still don't know how they do this because I would be happy with a meal of just tapas. Here of course they are on the menu, as many other creative and "nouveau" specialties inspired by the Latin, the European, and the American cuisines. Who knew there was a "ropa vieja" sandwich?

Being in the Portuguese section of Newark, the wine selection was also very good.
