“What a great find”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

There is nothing like a great steak in a cozy atmosphere to make you feel like you belong. This charmingly small restaurant offers good food that is professionally served in a slightly out of the way location. A few blocks up from the Costera, the short walk is well with the effort. Our waiter Raphael, who did speak English, happily returned our steaks to the kitchen when we found they were too rare. The Cesar salad was very good. The wine selection was excellent and we had a very nice Mexican wine. The cost for two including wine and tip was less than $800 peso or about $50 US. We will definitely return to this lovely restaurant.

“Great Meat”
Reviewed March 5, 2011

Heard about this place while in the Zocolo and decided to give it a try. It is not the easy to locate but once arriving I found it worth the trip.

The t-bone steak was excellent and the salad was great. The prices are half of what one would pay at LaMansion and the food just as good. Wine was also inexpensive compared to other locations.

“Good Meal”
Reviewed February 25, 2011

I first heard of this restaurant from one of the old timers at "Amigo Bob's".

Ithen looked it up on Trip Advisor and obtained the location and read the two reviews that praised the establishment and we decided to give it a try.

It is not the easist place to find as it is located halfway etween the Costera and Chautemotic. One must go to McDonald's by the Grand Plaza and walk north on a small street that appears to be a deadend but is not. Go three blocks up and you will see the Hotel San Juan on the right and Las Carolinas can be found off of the lobby.

We both ordered steaks and found them to be as good as those at La Mansion and at half the price. The wine was excellent and not expensive and the Ceasar's Salad was very good.

We shall return.

“Best steak in ACA”
Reviewed March 8, 2009

Went twice to this restaurant on our last visit (Feb.09) and we have had the best tasting steaks compared to all the other places we've tried over our 9 visits to ACA. Menu is not large but have been told by a friend who lives in ACA that their chicken is also excellent. Wine prices very reasonable, service is excellent.Two steak dinners,soup,salad,wine & coffee for $600 pesos, hard to beat.
