Menu is extensive and servings are generous. I had grilled vegetables and fried sweetbreads. Both were good but not excellent. Prices were not cheap but weren't either too expensive. Worth giving it a try.

Don't head to the "Mirador" expecting a panoramic view as the name implies. There are huge windows across one wall but mostly of highways and traffic. Nonetheless the dining room was spacious, the service knowledgable and friendly and the food delicious. A great option off the tourist trail

We went for breakfast but arrived a bit late. Jenn had the famous dried meat and eggs with their renowned beans and loved the meal and especially the hand made tortillas. My banana creme pie covered in walnuts was INCREDIBLE! The perfect non breakfast....breakfast:)

This was recommended by my taxi driver. Food is great (had steak). The service was very good, but a bit rushed (steak was out minutes after salad). Definitely recommend the ribeye and carve asado!

This is a steakhouse that you wouldn't think about maybe for breakfast, but they serve a wonderful Desayuno. I ordered bacon and eggs with bean and tacos and the amount of food was huge. I didn't finish, but it was quite tasty. They of course have traditional Mexican breakfast dishes, fresh fruits and yogurts.

This place has always had the best hand made tortillas... This time the service was good, ribeye and arracheras was just OK. Queso flameado was very good as well as the refried beans with "veneno" (extra fat!). The best was the Trevinada dessert, a Queso Flameado with Glorias (a regional goat milk caramel, type of dulce de leche), with hot... More

This place close to downtown Monterrey is a must if you love meet. The dishes are excellent but the best are the "Agujas", thin slices of meet with a piece of rib bone on them to give a special taste. Just superb. Ask also for the local chile piquing sauce.
