Right at home, that’s how you feel upon entering Matilda, a tavern/coffee shop just as welcoming as its owners; an economist and a hotelier who decided a year ago to open a warm and charismatic eatery in the neighborhood of Las Letras. No excuses. At Matilda you can let yourself go. They don’t have a fixed menu, they prepare a plate, then put it on Facebook, which inspires impromptu groups of friends as well as unknowns to eat together in a family style setting. Soft music plays in the background while you relax on one of their couches and read a book, reminiscent of being at your grandmother’s house. They also offer impressive local exhibitions on their walls, whether paintings or photographs. Biscuits and cakes, fish, meat and pasta cooked by an Italian cooking enthusiast and with a penchant for great taste . An amazing attention to detail is what makes you feel like family here. The cream of pumpkin and apple, vegetable lasagna or squid stew all transport you to your mother’s house, where you know it’s all made with love.
