If you are in the mood for an excellent salad, and an exceptional pice of meat. This is your best bet in Monterrey. They take NO reservations, take this into consideration if you want to avoid long waiting time. The place is worth sone waiting.

Great meat in a typical Argentinian restaurant. We had empanadas as starter as well as chef's salad and different types of meet as main course. Good service and good wines list. Watch out with the amount of food as the portions are very big.

Monterrey has a lot of steak restaurants but one of my favorites is el Gaucho, cuts are big enough for 4 people, meat is tender, remind me of Buenos Aires restaurants. Entraña is my favorite cut, wine selection is excellent, service is very good to, waiters are attentive and not overwhelming.

I´ve been a regular costumer of this restaurant since my childhood. It still has some of the best steaks in town and a salad that has become a trademark. Almost all steak houses in town have try to copy a version of the house salad, but none of them has succeeded. It contains lettuce, tomato, avocado, green olives and cheese,... More

This is a restaurant you must visit in Monterrey. I went with my father and we ordered the churrasco to share it was so good and so big that we couldn't ate everything. It's better if you call for reservation.
