Stopped in for a pre-show dinner. Very friendly comfortable and delicious food. Service excellent. Enjoyed the lovely evening out with my 41/2 year old grandson. The coloring materials for little ones had pirates, perfect for our Peter Pan show. You made an impromptu evening just perfect. I will now always plan dinner here before the show! Thanks!!!

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.

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.
