This place was recommended so our expectations were quite high. It is located right on Boulevard Venustiano Carranza about 3 kms from centro. Has some outside seating but can be quite noisy as it's right on the boulevard. The restaurant was not at all busy so it was easy to have full attention of our waiter. He was very helpful... More

But, they have a wide variety of dishes, including very good steaks. Nice ambiance, and great service. Don't miss it if you're in Saltillo for an extended stay!

La Canasta has been one of my top choices in town when looking for Mexican food in a clean place with good atmosphere. The interior decor is unique and it changes with the seasons and holidays. I heard about people who likes to visit this restaurant only to see the interior decor in different seasons. My wife and I are... More

This restaurant has been a staple for visitors for years. I was here 15 years ago and was excited to see that it still was around. A great meal for all 10 of us that dined there. Service was exceptional. The owner (?) sat at a table serveying the room and noticed when something or someone need attention. A slight... More

La Canasta was a must when closeby (1 hour drive from Monterrey, MX) and the visit was worth it. I had not been there in years so decided to try it again based on my experience. Service is ultra slow (3+ hours for lunch), food is just ok aand incredibly greasy (their traditional Tapado steak); what a shame. Will I... More

We're very sorry that your experience with us was unsatisfactory and we apologize. And though it is no excuse, we had a full house on Sunday October 7 and were unable to fully accommodate all our patrons. We surmise this from the fact that you state that the waiting time for lunch was as long as 3 hours. Our customers... More

Stayed in Saltillo for two weeks for busineess and went to many resturants. In my option this was the best resturant we went to. The resturant is beautiful both indoor and out. The Food is great. I had the stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon, and it was wonderful. Highly recommended for a high class meal in Saltillo.

I came in really late, and service and hospitality was the same as I was the first customer. Owners greeted me personally and invited me a soda while I was waiting my order to go.
