Begin with tequila with house made "sangrita", ali g with grilled artichoke, coliflouer or beet. Then the rib eye "chicharron" or tuna ceviche (my favorite) by this time I am done, but my husband and son love the beef cuts and the octopus. Fish is also excellent choice. Please don't forget to ask for desert. From the chocolate cake and... More

The Food at this restaurant is great, they have several excellent choices at their menu, the service in the table is excellent, but the service in reservation has areas of improvement, the reason is that it is a really crowded restaurant, and sometimes(dournig the weekend) the time it takes to get a table even with a reservation is too long,...

Without a doubt La Nacional is the best restaurant in Monterrey. It is always packed so you need a reservation. And it is not cheap but you get the best food in the best high end atmosphere in Monterrey

We had a wonderful dinner with friends here. We started with a ceviche which was outstanding. Next we feasted on a ribeye steak that was big enough for the entire table along with roasted collie flower and a basket of french fries. Finally the largest piece of chocolate cake finished our meal I hope I get the chance to experience... More

The food is the best, every single time I go (Lunch or Dinner) the place is packed, so I would recommend to reserve with time and just enjoy your time there with friends and family!

Try the grilled octopuss on black rice. All is good but a bit pricey. Hope we had more options in Monterrey cause good places are really expensive.

This is my go-to restaurant for special occasions, absolutely LOVE the salted rib eye, the roasted artichoke, and the chocolate lava cake. Expensive but the experience is definitely worth it!

I'm from Monterrey, and whenever I have to treat someone from another city I take them to La Nacional... everyone loves it!! They have the best meats, the "alcachofas a las brasas" are a must, they are simply the best!
