El Matador is the vibrant vision of both Hugo and Maz. As a well-respected figure of Sevenoaks, Kent, Hugo had the dream of bringing Spanish-Argentinian cuisine and culture into the heart of the community. As a native of Argentina and having worked in the hospitality industry in Spain, Switzerland and Berlin, Hugo passionately believes in sharing his Latin Roots, flavours, music, culture and food. But this is no stereotypical restaurant; everything at El Matador is forward-thinking with a contemporary touch, from the use of crisp-white crockery, right down to our modern tapas and fresh Argentinian meats.

Maz is passionate about cooking, dancing and a healthy lifestyle. He has travelled far and wide to bring his love of undiscovered wines to the table, challenging palettes to explore exceptional, regional wines beyond Rioja. Expect dancing, sharing, tasting and drinking at El Matador – a restaurant that really is a breath of fresh air in Sevenoaks and beyond.
