I came here for the first time, and I was very happy with everything. The ambiance was fantastic, the food was amazing, and Ruben was phenomenal!! Ruben was very attentive and on point with everything. He constantly checked up on us to ensure that everything was ok. I can't wait to come back. Thank you.

- Jess, Yelp

This restaurant was absolutely worth it!! The scenery was beautiful & felt like you were in Spain, so definitely sit outside! The food was amazing & the best paella I've ever had, was here. Our waiter Leo was great and very attentive and welcoming. This place is a must visit.

- Elaine, Yelp

Great location for a pregame at the Pru Center. The tapas here was very good. Decor is nice, the bar was pretty lively for a Wednesday night and the wait staff was great.

- Rottentalkie, Trip Advisor

Perfection! I love cozy sit downs with warm lighting, a vibing playlist in the background, delicious cocktails and small plates of beautifully made (and tasting) foods. The staff couldn't have been anymore on point with their (appropriate amount of) attention to service - Thank you! Mompou, positively, stimulated my senses and I can not wait to go back for more!

- Desiree, Facebook

I am impressed every time I go. They are so welcoming. Food is extraordinary. Service with a smile at all times. They have the right business model.
