Mateo is my absolute favorite restaurant in Durham. The food never disappoints, and the ambience is so chic. I even got to sit upstairs this time! I took my brother’s girlfriend who was in town from NYC and she was so impressed with how it felt like an NYC restaurant, but the prices were so much more reasonable.
Service, food and atmosphere was great. We had a party of 6 to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Mateo offered a wonderful venue to casually enjoy the evening.
Best food and environment ever . The service was a little slow, but overall was fantastic experience.
Fantastic food. Excellent service.
I love this place. I love the food and the service. It is by so far one of my favorite restaurant.
Great Food, Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff, excellent service - will go back soon!
Mateo was great. The ambiance was good and the food was very tasty!
What a wonderful experience. Loved everything we had, the calamari, scallops, brisket and monkfish. And the salad is one o will have cravings for! And the desserts are to die for! Will definitely be back when visiting my son at Duke!
Very interesting Tapas menu that works well for sharing. Well priced Spanish wine list. Friendly college town service but the staff was knowledgeable. Very lively and loud and clearly the most popular place in downtown Durham on a Thursday night
Awesome tapas. Great vibe. We really enjoyed the layout. Much lager than you might imagine from the outside.
Loved the comfy cushions!
We had the pleasure of being taken care of by our favorite server, John. He brought over our favorite wine without being prompted. Nice to feel special and have great food also. Best banana pudding ever. Mateo always has great food and excellent service.
Great food, a little bit pricey but maybe because it was Valentine's day.
As always the food was really special !!
Top Notch Establishment!!!
Amazing food, though not a place you should go really hungry. Tapas are delicious though quite small. If you go when you're hungry, be prepared to spend a lot.
