Really great food, excelent service and good atmosphere. My favorites are: Aguachile de rib eye (sealed rib eye cut in slices, with a lemon sauce all over it) Chicharron de rib eye with guacamole Rib eye a la sal (around 2 inches thick on the grill and a side of garlic) Alcachofa asada (artichoke on the grill)

I have eaten here at least 50 times and it is always good. It is a bit upscale and more expensive my Mexican standards, but worth it if you can afford it. Great service, but it gets crowded late evening.

What can I say, this was a traditional mexican Cantina when mexican cantinas were known for excellent greasy keep you sober food. They went full remodel for the general audience in this second restaurant and boy did they succeed. The ambiance is beautiful with the modern feel to the traditional mexican cantina. It not only excels in it's food, but... More

I had a truly memorable meal here. We started with a ceviche with mango and habanero to start and it was great.

Been there maybe 10 times in the last year, and has never let me down. The grilled octopus with black rice is really good, the tuna sashimi, the red snapper... More

By far, one of the finest restaurants I have eaten in abroad. The price is higher than others around, but everything is top-notch... service, food, ambiance. The meet was very tendera nd juicy, the salad dishes extraordinary gourmet food. You do need a reservation or you could wait a long time.

The best food and experience in Monterrey and San Pedro... every time is different but great experience, I have tried a lot of dishes and always the same quality and great flavor, a bit expensive but will go back each time I'm in the city. Make a reservation, otherwise it might be impossible to get a table.

I had dinner here a few years ago and went back during my recent visit to Monterrey. The place was still as I remembered with great food in a friendly atmosphere. I can certainly reccomend the suckling pig as main dish.

Very good service, and very good good. Isolated area for smokers. We felt good, and will definitely go there again next time we visit Monterrey.
