Visited El Rey del Cabrito, on a business meal. To sum it all up...bad service, bad food and bad atmosphere. Please don't go there. Service is super slow, waiters make you feel they are doing you a favor. Maybe it used yo be good, not anymore. Save your self the hassle.

Title summarizes it all. They mainly do grilled young/baby lamb. Not much flavor in the meat itself, served with tortillas. Just average. For desserts: try their locally made candy

They have been serving the best cabrito I've tried for years and years. it is NOT a sophisticated restaurant so don't expect anything but magnificent cabito. Their menu offers alternatives for those who don't want Cabrito BUT this is the reason why you come to this restaurant. it is not only the restaurants specialty, it is the region's specialty. Wine...

I love this place!!! I have been here numerous times since 2006. The customer service is excellent!!! The house tequila is delicious!!! The Cabrito is ¡Muy Rico! The safari like interior of the restaurant is amazing!!! The price is more expensive but it is definitely worth every peso!!!! I love this place!!!

Went there because of its fame. The place is big, with old and tacky decoration. Service is fast. Food was ok, definitively overpriced.

A must when in Monterrey. All of our friends told us about this place so it was our first stop. The baby goat meat was so tender and tasty. The atmosphere was very unusual with many chandeliers and neon. Many famous people eat here. You should too! Steve & Jenn

We ordered arrachera and aguja, both were really good. Very tender & tasty steaks. The price is ok for what you get, not cheap nor expensive. The place is nice and the service is excellent, they serve you all you need before you ask for it.

Go hungry!! This is a beautiful restaurant with huge windows spotlighting their meat-processing process. This is a perfect example of getting what you pay for. The price is higher here than other establishments, but the food quality is much greater. This is my go-to, first stop every time I get into town! Delicious!!

A very fashionable restaurant but definitely not worth it. The cabrito is bone dry. perhaps it should be like that for the way it is prepared , but definitely not a hit with me . The beef was also overdone. So but for the pleasure to see this place there nothing good to say.
