“Mexican Fusion Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a new restaurant (as of 2013) in the San Pedro area, on Av. Vasconcelos (northern side, across from Tacos Milo). If you are looking for "traditional" Mexican food, this is probably not a place for you. In our opinion the menu has rather more healthy choices than many of the restaurants in the region typically offer. There is an outdoor dining area, which is quieter than the inside areas. So if you are eating here in the evening during late spring, summer or fall, you might want to elect for the outside terrace. There brick walls of the interior really reflect noise and since the interior tends to be very packed, it can be tough to carry on a conversation and be heard, or to hear. The crowd here tends also to be animated, and the energy levels are high. We have to disagree with an earlier writer, that the food was blah. We found it to be very good, definitely anything but blah, although some of the ingredients are perhaps less than common in Monterrey and maybe they were not used to unusual combinations of ingredients? In terms of cost, it does not seem all that out of line, you are paying for the experience of eating things that, mostly likely, you would never prepare for yourself at home (assuming that you could buy the ingredients at your local supermarket). We really like it, welcome Gallo 71, San Pedro is racing toward at a breakneck pace to becoming a world class city....and that requires world class dining too. We say "wow".

“Delicious! Mexican classics with a twist...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Great menu! I had dinner here twice on my last trip to Monterrey. I liked not only what I ordered, but also what my friends had, so I had to go a second time. Really worth it. They have very nice quality ingredients, prepared in a simple way, so as not to distract from their essence. Classic mexican, ( like the "tacos de tuétano"), with innovative variations. Also, a very high quality selection of tequilas, ask for the advise of their in-house tequila expert, you'll love it!

“It was freezing, and food was blah”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Really didn't enjoy this restaurant much. We went for a birthday, and the main door was attached to the dining room. It was freezing! They didn't have heat. There's free valet. The smoking section was portioned off, and it was warmer. Food was not good really at all. It had opened recently, but expect more from this restaurant group. I won't go back.

“Want a real taste of mexican cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Ok, mexican cuisine has a lot of variables it all come down to the region, but for a real taste of mexican food start of with an order of tacos de tuetano, simply delicious
