It used to be better. Its a very good restaurant but it used to be better years ago. Food is much more expensive and they have less quality. Now service seems to be massive. The store they had many years ago entering on the left it was very nice.

Delicious traditional Mexican food! I'm Mexican and I've travelled throughout Mexico getting to know many of the different flavors. This restaurant includes most of them, from the most southern to the northern states. I can tell you that the flavor they have in this restaurant is as if you were in that location of our country. They really pay close... More

I have been many times to this restaurant and they never disappoint. The food is delicious, and the service excellent. The place is nice with a Mexican feel to it. The beer is always ice cold and they have all the Tequilas you can imagine. The house sangrita is better than any other you can find in similar restaurants. They... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and their quality and service is always excellent! Salmon is great! I just tried the new tuna with sesame crust and is also great! Bi-color soup is really original and an excellent choice. Very good desserts also!

I absolutely loved my visit here. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff are incredibly kind and the menu has some great choices. Almost too many great choices! After eating numerous chips with the delicious fresh salsas i decided to skip starters, which is a shame as they were go many wonderful dishes. For main I had the Azteca steak dish,... More

I love La Catarina. My favorite dish is the beef filet with chile pasilla sauce. Everything is good, the mole, stuffed chile, pork, salads and soups. Don't miss it.

The meal didnt have the quality it used to have. The service was slopy and the prices are high, since they have new owners, they lost the good services and food they use to have.
