Very good Mexican food. Nice place and good service. It is a must if you want to try some real Mexican food other than cabrito.

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.

We taste the cream of beans (mixed on the bowl black/white) was great, they served us a delicious dessert, also all on a typical Mexican decor, with a great service.

This is a very good place to visit when you crave Mexican traditional food, don't come for steaks or sea food. I will definitely go back soon. Very recommended.

Went there after a year for a special family meal and it's impressive how things have changed. They finally changed the silverware and there's no smoking area now, with is a welcoming change because before the whole restaurant smelled like smoke. Over all, the food was great, they even have vegan dishes now. Many Mexican fusion dishes and traditional Mexican.... More
