One of the most famous dishes of the city is Cabrito this regional delicacy is served in different restaurants but here it is superb! The service is excellent and super fast the atmosphere doesn't get more local than that to be honest. The place is really nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. My favourite par the kidney cut but other list "Paleta" are very good as well. I'd avoid the leg tho it can be dry at times. And if you don't like to try Cabrito they also have other options of beef. They offer a salad bar too. For the starter ask for some "frijoles con veneno" fried beans with chorizo. Guacamole and "queso fundido" cheese with chorizo, doesn't get better than that! Go with an empty stomach and enjoy.

We visited this restaurant after the recommendation of an uncle, and in general of the people we know here in Monterrey, it is by far the best option to have a good cabrito in Monterrey, with the best value-price relation and awesome attention. To begin the cabrito is not dry as in other places, they give several appetizers free of charge such as "frijoles con veneno" and every order of cabrito includes unlimited salad buffet. Definitely a must visit in Monterrey!

everything is good: staff is friendly and helpful, appetizers are awesome, and the meat is perfectly cooked. Reserve or arrive early, because it;s always full.

Don't know to much about Cabrito their main dish in Monterrey but for my taste it was too greasy with no flavor n very very expensive for my wallet, at 150.00 dollars per Cabrito.
The people or service it was excellent.
