“great tacos and salsa”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is a nice popular restaurant in Fiesta san Agustin. They have special tacos that have a corn shell that is a cross between hard and soft. There is an indigenous lady that makes salsa from scratch in front of your table, with whatever peppers and ingredients you desire. Very good.

“Good Restaurant, Great Location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

La Embajada sits in Central San Pedro area within "a stone's throw" of the Quinta Real Hotel, the Safi Hotel, and the El Camino Real Hotel. Situated with both outdoor and indoor dining among a number of restaurants, this is good place to park yourself for a meal or just drinks and appetizers. Nice menu representing Mexican dishes from many locales around Mexico, there is something for everyone. The food quality was very good, service was expedient, and the price seemed more than fair. May not be the single best restaurant you will eat at in Monterrey, but certainly a fine and easy choice for those staying in the area.

“Super food with an amazing atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The food and service were very good, don't miss the Pastel de elote for desert. First desert I've had that incorporated popcorn - unusual, but amazing!

“Convenient and good”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Located in Plaza San Augustin, Monterrey this is a convenient place if you are staying at one of the nearby hotels or have guests there. Dining outside is nice if it isn't windy. Inside, the A/C is a little too cold. Good service, good food at a reasonable price. Thier Cabrito is excellent.

“Excellent gourmet mexican food!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

The real taste of a mexican food in a wonderfull place. The "cazuelas" are a very good choice to make delicious tacos. You can't forget the desserts, try the traditional " arroz con leche" with mueganos.
The restaurant location is a lovely place with many other choices of excellent restaurants.
