We stopped for a bite in Le Mat by chance. We were shopping in Common People, a lovely small shopping location in Emilio Castelar street. Le Mat has a pretty outdoor setting, very inviting. We shared the smoked salmon, a burger and a few cocktails. The food is not outstanding but it's good. The place is good for people watching.

It's been a while since I didn't enjoy this kind of service which is what you expect in this kind of place. We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation and the place was full, they apologized and offer a table at the bar immediately with two drinks of our election on the house. One minute after we sat at the... More

Very nice place, with a huge terasse facing Lincoln parc but at the same time well separated from the street noise. Nice decoration and great drinks, made to order by skilled barman. Good palce to stop for a short break.

I found Le Mat by Trip Advisor and choose it as option for a business meal. Truth is was a GREAT choice as restaurant roof turned to be a nice and pleasant place to have a good conversation and also to enjoy a nice view of Lincoln park. Even when menu options are not quite extensive, I think they have... More

After an evening stroll in the Park, my wife and I were looking for a nice place to sit and have a glass of wine. We found Le Mat directly across the road and were attracted by its large covered patio. We decided to stay for dinner. Beautiful location but with average food and service. Nothing to really complain about,... More

Walking by Emilio Castelar park in polanco, this is a place you have to stop by and see, it looks like a giant house and shop, and it actually is. The restaurant has an amazing terrace across the park and its well served and fully staffed. Their wine selection is quite good and you should definately try the small hamburguers... More

This is a beautiful terrace just in front of Parque Linconl in Polanco. You can enjoy the place even when it rains because the terrace is covered with sliding roof. The desserts are incredible, Chai Crème brûlée or Ginger Custard. Don't forget to try the duck served over mashed yams, it's amazing!!!
