My girlfriend and I have been to this resturant a couple of times and we totally love it. Our favorites are the "costillitas" and the pizza. The service is great and fast but it gets really busy for dinner so make sure to make a reservation at least 3 days in advance. The ambiance is awesome so if you want... More

The food was average and super expensive. The only reasonable priced are the pizzas. Decoration is kish which is kind out of fashion. Service was so so. A friend told me very good things about this place but expected much more... In a bigger or more international city this place will close for sure.

If you want a fancy dinner this is NOT the place. Xbox it's perfect to spend time with friends while eating pizza or any other of the casual dishes. We order a pizza with no meat because one friends is vegetarian. Really good choice.

The Xbox cafe keeps getting better and better. Good service, great food in a fun atmosphere, for every occasion. I have loved everything I've ever tried here, and I visit fairly often. You can't go wrong!

I live in Monterrey and Xbox Cafe is a place I always look forward to go back to! Best burger (kobe burger) in San Pedro. Delicious pizzas, BBQ baby back ribs are amazing, most entries are great (the bruschettas are really good). Highly recommended, always a good idea to bring your own good bottle of wine to accompany your meal... More

We go to Café Xbox frequently on Sundays for lunch. The service is just OK, but the food is very good. The menu is relatively limited, but enough; they have a great fig salad, and the "simple" salad that comes as a side for other dishes is very good, it always has very fresh greens, and the house dressing is...

Smokey, and the tomato "soup" is more like salsa or tomato sauce. I have been twice, I wouldn't really recommend it, though for take out, the pizza is really good.

Forget the weird name, this restaurant is something serious, The best pizza I've ever tasted in whole monterrey metropolitan area, you must try the fig salad, just delicious.

This place is in the corner of a plaza and could be hard to find. Ask any local or concierge to get direccions to it. It is a must visit, their brick oven pizzas and specials cooked in the oven are marvelous!
