I took my mentors for dinner at Mata as they had requested South American cuisine. Our experience was amazing! The staff were incredible. Both knowledgeable and funny. They helped us pick the exact right dishes and even made sure that our nut allergy was taken care of. I would HIGHLY recommend Mata Bar to anyone!

Mata is a fun and tasty place. A great selection of options and the drinks are worth a try. The other thing I liked about Mata is the passion and dedication of the staff. Give it a try - worth it.

The service was great but the winterlicious menu was amazingly disappointing. The portions were tiny and the dessert empanada had one tiny strip of filling

The moment you step into Mata, you are transported to a Brazilian/South American universe...warm, inviting, attentive, delicious, flavourful, conscientious and vibrant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant based on all three aspects, but especially on the wonderful owners who really make an effort to make you feel special and valued as a guest. Go!

Lovely atmosphere and ambience. Food proportions were perfect and delicious. Dessert was different and presentation was a perfect end to an awesome meal. Friendship ribbons was a lovely end.

Food served with flair and delicious. Service efficient but lacks warmth.Confusing hours posted showed no lunch.Bottom line it's a Portuguese tapas bar. Not a bad thing.

AMAZING experience! Went for Winterlicious... never been to this restaurant before, so was unsure what to expect. The portions were great; the flavours - out of this world; and the service was 10/10. One of the owners, who doubled as a server (did nto grab his name), was very knowledgeable, informative and friendly. I love the story of the wish bracelets! My friends and I had such an excellent evening... will definitely return for their regular menu, and for brunch, too!

Great dinner with different plates all with their own twist. The Petiscos (Brazilian tapas) are so good. Its a different cuisine from what we can find usually. Very good caipirena to start! Great service.

Went to Mata for New Year's Eve dinner and it was amazing! They had a prix fixe menu for the day, and it was worth each cent. The food was amazing as aways and the drinks as well. It was a great way to end 2016.
