This place is so great for the famous agujas from Monterrey, impossible to drive past it without eating here. My menu is already sett when I know that I have the chance to eat here. Queso fundido, agujas and their hot and tasty chile piquin sauce. The attention of the waiters is great, they are always at your service when... More

This place close to downtown Monterrey is a must if you love meet. The dishes are excellent but the best are the "Agujas", thin slices of meet with a piece of rib bone on them to give a special taste. Just superb. Ask also for the local chile piquing sauce.

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
