The typical Monterrey food "Cabrito"
This is the best well know cabrito restaurant

“Thee place to get your goat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

This is quite an unusual place - and not just because their speciality is goat. Tiled arched ceilings, statues/busts of animals all over, multiple chandeliers - quite a site. We had dried beef and chorizo and cheese apps. The beef was interesting - and good. The chorizo dish was nothing to get excited about. I had the combo of arrachera and goat leg for dinner. [It was my first goat.] I will not go out of my way for it, but it was ok. The arrachera had a lot lacking compared to the piece I had a few days earlier [at La Catarina]. Overall, I think the place rides on the goat. So if you want goat - go. Otherwise, much better options nearby.

“Excellent Business Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

During my recent stay visit in Monterrey, I was invited for a business lunch. The food was great, both the small starters with salsa and guacamole, and as well the goat meet with tacos. The setting and atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice and interesting.

“Delicius”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Try the riñonada one of the best plates. Take care of the salsas they are very hot if you don't know to eat chile. Also ask for an INDIO beer. And a guacamole with totopos(tortilla chips)

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

If you really like cabrito and are spending a lot of time in Monterrey, you should probably try this place. The cabrito is good. They also serve parts of the animal that you can't find in a lot of places (for the more adventurous person).

This place has been around forever - a true Monterrey landmark. The food is good (not great), the service is good, the prices are fair.
