The place looked clean, staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very traditional. I ordered a taco salad and it was tons of liquidy beans and juice with not much lettuce. But everything else was nice.

I ate at Las Katarinas last week in Nevada City for the first time and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Everything was homemade down to the enchilada sauce, it was the best I have ever eaten. The place was clean and we had good service. I would love to go back. My friend and I had... More

I had an overstuffed burrito. -spiced just right. My husband had beef fajitas , moist and tasty. The servers are very polite and... More

Nevada City has a number of very good restaurants and this is one of them. Excellent, tasty food in a very pleasant and colorful environment. Starts with excellent salsa and warm chips and keeps getting better. Prices are a little upscale from the run of the mill "Mexican" establishment, but well worth the cost.

My wife & I have been coming to Las Katarinas for several years, and we feel it's the best mexican food in the Grass Valley/ Nevada City area. The food is always excellent, and consistent every time. The service is always outstanding, and the owner Dave, always makes you feel at home. Highly recommend.....

Good menu selection and fresh food. Good portions. They leave the water pitcher of water on the table, which I liked. Good flour tortillas.

We had gone to see "Avenue Q" at the theater up the street. We happened into this restaurant because we were hungry and it was close to the theater. The food was very good and so was the service.

Great place to eat....My hubby LOVES the shrimp burrito. I'm not a seafood fan, but I have NEVER had a bad meal here...and if we are going out to dinner in Nevada City, this is always one of my first choices!!

Entertained a group here for lunch. No one knew anything about the restaurant until we arrived. We were greeted at the door of the small restaurant and were quickly seated, Chips, salsa and menus were quickly provided. For a small family run business the menu is full of items. We ordered a variety of dishes. All were very good as... More

After several people telling us to skip Las Katarinas, we decided to try this place for ourselves after the antique dealer gave us a coupon for dinner. I tried a unique enchilada dish with shredded beef, sour cream and ranchera sauce. It was the best enchilada dish I've ever had in a Mexican restaurant. If you like Mexican food, don't... More
