“Delicious food for reasonable price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012 via mobile

I had a very satisfying lunch at this place. The place has a fancy, upscale feel to it, yet the food is definitely not overpriced and is very delicious. I had grilled chicken while m father had garlic salmon, and we were both filled and satisfied by the end of our lunch. The portions are big too! The service was a bit slow, but we were there during lunch breK, so I guess it's understandable. Overall a great experience!

“Grilled Ribeye excellence !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

This modernized old-time cantina, serves some of the best food you can find in Monterrey. It is currently a very trendy spot for young businessmen and it is quite expensive, but the food is worth it. Their Ribeye Aguachile is amazing, as well as their salted grilled ribeye. They serve many other outstanding dishes such as a grilled artichoke which is quite good, and they advertise it all over the place. They have a very decent wine list, mostly Mexican wines but they do have a good selection of Spanish, American and South American wines as well. This would be my very first pick if I were to take a visitor to dinner.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011 via mobile

Great place with delicious food! Must have a reservation, though. Almost always busy...so wouldn't suggest just showing up without one.

“Cantina style Steak House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Has enclosed Smoking area which makes the separation agreeable for everybody, very nice outside seating area, next door to Lucca Restaurnt & Holiday Inn Express. Do not miss the meat appetizers, Empanadas & of course the great Bife de Chorizo.

“Excellent Mexican food in an old cantina atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

This is a great restaurant to have a festive occasion. Noisy, crowded, and very smokey in the smoking section.
They have versions of typical foods that are very popular for the local Monterrey taste, and foreigners will love it, too.
Most tables order their food to share, so you can try different flavors.
Many tasty appetizers, mostly regional, like fideo tacos with chorizo; guacamoles, arrachera burritos, all very good. Original and flavorful grilled artichoke is a signature dish here. Try your appetizers with tequila and local beer.
For mains I recommend beef dishes, especially the Cowboy rib eye 'a la sal' or maybe this is called the 'tomahawk' which is the same rib eye, just with a very long bone in that makes it look like a tomahawk. We also tried some swordfish and it was very good.
I don't know about desserts, never made that far.
