La Catarina offers traditional north eastern mexican dishes such as Cabrito and great beef steaks as well as other regional dishes. Great execution and presentation along with excellent service.

Recommendable!! No disadvantages, and many advantages: interesting entrees (such as sweet pepper with meat), probably one of only few chances for pre-hispaci appetizers (worms, ants' eggs, crickets) and a great choice of tequilas and mezcal, Worth trying!

I recently ate lunch at La Catarina with my family and it was absolutely fantastic! We went on a Friday during the lunch hour and the place was alive and buzzing.

Wonderful food, super friendly staff and they gave us a table that made us feel we were home at our dinning room without other people around. Everything was so good! Authentic Mexican food. Have been to the restaurant several times in the past 15 years. Loved the cotton candy at the end of the meal.

The place is cozy and the personnel warm. Menu is extensive and offers a wealth of options on Mexican food mostly from the north of the country but also plates from other geographies. Good Service.

Excellent dishes but service was a bit slow and distracted, we arrived when there was only one table occupied and had to call the maitre'd to let him notice our situation.
