“Pretty location for a drink, go elsewhere for food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

We were wandering aimlessly around Polanco, an area that has an abundance of many extremely good restaurants, when we came upon Le Mat which my daughter had heard about and as the pretty terrace over-looked a park and the weather was perfect so we decided to stop and eat. The menu reads very well, slightly pretentious comfort food, but the execution was just not there, several dishes were either luke warm, salty, dry and re-heated and for what we had: EXPENSIVE. We have found a constant problem over the years in restaurants spending all their money on location or decoration and not spending it where it needs spending: IN THE KITCHEN !!!
