Decided to try something new. This place had great reviews. They are warranted. Fantastic pizza! The Matador Special is loaded! More expensive than your average take out pizza but so worth it. Will be back!!

Loved, loved the gluten free pizza I ordered. The delivery was on time and worth the wait. I was able to track the delivery order and know when he was at my hotel. The pizza was thick cheese and great crust - you didn't feel like you were eating sand as some gluten free crusts are like that. This pizza... More

The Matador has been around for a long time. The owners have always taken pride in making it look a "step above" in terms of decor and staying on top of things. Classic Italian Marble. Pizza is great. Prices a smidge high. Caesar salad disappointingly average. Baked Lasagna is great as well. The lounge is a small neighbourhood hangout specializing... More

This was our families 2nd time in the past ffew months. the first time we didn't even get our salads served to us. The waitress was obviously too busy with other tables. Not attentive at all. Last night we took our friends there and hoped that it would be different BUT it was not. We were kind of embarrassed since... More

Decided to meet up with a bud and his kids on the weekend on Sunday - Jan 23. I told him I bring a pizza out from Calgary and they're in Cochrane. Called up Matador's again and had them make my usual fav, an extra large All Meat with extra Pepperoni instead if Italian Sausage. Got there picked it up... More

Although this restaurant has been there for ever, every time we go there (mainly for pizza) the place is full and the pizza is always very good. The staff are very attentive, the last renovations (a year or so ago) make it much more comfortable and an enjoyable place. I really cannot say much about the other menu items except... More

The food here is old school. Excellent all the way!! The pizza is terrific, and even the gluten free pizza which my daughter had was superb. We came in around 2pm on a Saturday, there were 3 other tables. The wait for our food was brutal. We finally broke down and asked the waitress where our food was. She said... More

Each day, Matador's has a "special" - always a great deal and wonderful food. My husband had a steak dinner for $21.00. Wow! I had the most amazing salmon steak - $20.00. It included a salad or soup to start and it was a great evening out. We highly recommend this restaurant! And - I concur with all the other... More

It is hard to find places like this anymore. The atmosphere isn't trendy, but it is cozy, friendly, and they serve good food with large portions. And everyone eating there seems happy too. We had the homemade soup, steak, and pasta. Can't wait to go back and try the pizza!
