The location is Mexican hacienda style. They have a very good menu. I recommend as appetizers: beef tacos. ensenada style shrimp tacos, cheese with "hoja santa" fideo tacos and cebiche. As a...

This is probably the best place for traditional Mexican food in Monterrey. The menu is very interesting. Food, drinks, desserts and coffee are very tasty. Service is very professional.

Great location, ambiance ambiance and service. The starters are bite sized and perfect for sharing. And the best of all is the custom prepared salsa at your table with the traditional molcajete (pestle and mortar).

This is a must go restaurant to try if you're in vacations in Monterrey, also all the restaurants that Grupo Pangea include. Its a Mexican gourmet restaurant, don't forget to try the Salmon with tortilla chips in chipotle sauce, and the escamole tacos! It's an expensive place but, it is totally worth your money. Great Mexican atmosphere.

Went to La Catarina to celebrate my birthday, the restaurant decoration is better than the food. The overall experience was ok. We ordered some of the traditional arrachera, and asked for it to be cooked medium, and the 1st time they brought it, it was well done, the 2nd time it was rare, probably the chef was having a bad...
