Yes, La Nacional is an expensive restaurant....but it is totally worth it! There's nothing like starting the night with the Rib eye's chicharron served with guacamole in a molcajete...you'll want to order 3-4 more molcajetes of this deliciousness. For main dish: zarandeado octopus with black rice. It will leave you without words, you just want to keep eating all night... More

This place keeps delivering good quality food with top ingredients but at very high price. The visit was not perfect since the service lacked in some areas.

Excellent restaurant, speciliazed in meat, with dozens of different options. Plenty of Mexican specialties as well. Fantastic wine list. You´d better book, as the place is very busy every day.

Went there because it was near our hotel. What a surprise! Thought it was just another decent steakhouse. We had grilled vegetables (our highlight): turns out grilled carrots are amazing! Guacamole was good (huge). Black rice and grilled octopus, spectacular!! You just have to try it. Left with a big unexpected smile in our face.

If you are having a business dinner or just want a good steakhouse, La Nacional is a great choice. Very good meat options, with great atmosphere. The place has a great vibe, high-energy, but not obnoxious. I usually recommend this place for people traveling to Monterrey.

If you ever go to Monterrey, northern state of Mexico, by all means stop at this incredible eatery. My wife and I split a RIBEYE a la sal (One Kilo) out of this world. For dessert we also Split a banana pie, it´s a must. Godd Air condition and the service is great

Admittedly, Monterrey may not be a tourist destination although it slowly is growing to that. But if you are ever in Monterrey or want an excuse just go to La Nacional that is excuse alone. It probably the best restaurant in Mexico, at least for me, and clearly the best in Monterrey. The food and the service are just out... More

Ate here for a business dinner and it was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had. Everything we had was wonderful and I highly recommend the margaritas, ceviche, and pistachio cake for dessert. Wow!

They just cannot get it wrong! Food is amazing. I had a "filete de res a la sal". They served it just perf Carly cooked, crispy and tender inside. It comes with roasted garlic. Nice taste! I would come here every time I visit Monterrey. Staff is extremely nice.

A rare find, find out what local yuppies have been enjoying for generations, very simple food, exquisite steakhouse style meat cuts, lots of pork. A diamond in the dessert. La Nacional team usually rescues recipies from small towns and delivers them to your table. You cant leave Monterrey with out this craving generating machine!!!!!
