Mateo's Restaurant Cafe

For my sister's graduation, we decided to eat at Mateo's Restaurant Cafe. I found it through Patty Laurel's Instagram (@pattylaurel) and thought that it would be the perfect venue to celebrate with the family. We had dinner there one Friday night. From the photos I've seen, it's more beautiful when the sun is out because it gives everything an extra glow. At night, it has a romantic vibe, so it's perfect for dates as well.

Overall, the food was okay. I felt the prices were a bit high for the serving sizes, but the ambiance/atmosphere was cozy, a great place for intimate gatherings. Our favorites were the quesadillas (we had two orders) and the salpicao (juicy and flavorful). The waiters highly recommend their paellas, which we didn't get to try because we were already hungry and didn't want to wait thirty minutes for it to be served. Maybe next time.
