Great service and food (English text included); try the roasted crickets in the table-side made salsa
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...

This is the place if you want to try Mexican Cuisine at its best. Traditional Mexican dishes, fish, beef, pork, baby goat, etc. do not miss it.
This restaurant is perfect if you would like to get a taste of real traditional Mexican food (not the Tex-Mex kind of dishes). You can choose from traditional local dishes from various parts of Mexico (including baby goat which is very traditional to Monterrey). I tried a dish that had beef medallions placed on a thick tortilla, with grilled cactus,... More
We were taken to La Caterina for lunch after a business meeting. Our host rated it as one of the best places to eat in Monterrey, and we weren't disappointed. Good selection of largely Mexican food (even some pre-hispanic dishes - although I wasn't brave enough for the grasshoppers). Nicely done starters and a plentiful supply of tortillas. I had... More

For those who don´t understand this, restaurants, clubs and other places where these guys may show up have policies to keep them OUT of the premises. Not in La Catarina. Our Sunday (Feb 2) family lunch became... More
Why do you go out to eat? For the experience, flavors you cannot duplicate, and to have someone wait on you [while you do not do the cooking]. This place hits on all marks. Service was excellent - never a wait, while never being all over you. We shared a sampling of apps - all excellent. For main I had... More
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant: the food, the service, the menu and the Tequila selection was outstanding. They even came and prepared your choice of “salsa” at the table side, nice touch! IMHO, one of my best restaurant experiences in Monterrey
We visited this restaurant on a surprisingly quiet Saturday night. The service, the atmosphere, the presentation of the food, and the creative food were all excellent. The prices were high for Mexico, but we got what we paid for. The fresh chips and salsa were augmented by the waiter when he made fresh salsa of ingredients we chose, in a... More
