I love it

I haven't been in el mirador for about 10 years , I found it as good as it was by then , try de Ajujas de Sirloin , guacamole , tablita de filete. All are very good at this Monterrey Steak House. Close to downtown , and very well connected to any where in Monterrey.

I have known this restaurant for many years and it has great food. We always ask for machacado (dried meat with eggs), beans with poison (pork with non-spicy sauce) and flamed cheese. Never miss the flour tortillas and the green chiles they serve on the side. I have been there for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The only issue to take... More

I've been traveling to Monterrey for over 20 years. El Mirador is always consistently excellent. One of my favorites. Centrally located to downtown or Garza Garcia. The steaks are excellent and the service is second to none. You cannot go wrong. Enjoy!

A wannabe American restaurant with bad steak and expensive dishes. The guacamole is decent, the rest is not worth the price

It's not the tipical "fonda" where you get tacos. It's an upscale mexican restaurant. They have very good "carne asada", guacamole, asado de puerco and their famous frijoles con veneno (beans with venom), beans with the asados de puerco's sauce. Thier tortillas are very good also. It's expensive, but the service is excellent, and it's one of the best "mexican... More

This restaurant is a nice place to eat in Monterrey. The price is above the average but it's justified by the good food and room. I liked it for businness meals and even leisure when you want to impress.

I used to visit El Mirador weekly for over 10 years, and it was always a nice experience. El Mirador has always been known for fantastic beef and amazing service, also as 'the place to see and be seen'. The place is still always packed with business people and politicians. After not visiting for some time, I decided to stop... More

Whatever you do, you need to order a "Taco Loco" first. Great service and better food. Very well located.

This very big restaurant was popular ten years ago with the politicians, the place to be seen. Then it was enlarged with a second floor for non smokers that made the place loose its spotlight effect. The meat is plain average, but the handmade tortillas with real corn and not corn flour always make me come back.

The different cuts of meat were prepared perfectly - everything was tender and delicious - and most of it served family style. The side dishes, i.e guacamole, etc. and the mixed drinks (Cuba Libres) were great as well. Beautiful setting and very attentive service. Great experience and looking forward to my return visit.
