It is an amazing restaurant that truly celebrates the best of the Mexican cuisine. Not only classic but reinvented dishes that makes you want to come again and again.

Maybe for foreigners this place can be great, but is difficult to impress a mexican here. They have dishes from all over the country, and as expected, they are not specialist on all of them, so the outcomes are not the best.

Great place for traditional Mexican food in a pleasant environment. Not as trendy perhaps as other places in Monterrey, but well worth the visit.

La Catarina offers traditional north eastern mexican dishes such as Cabrito and great beef steaks as well as other regional dishes. Great execution and presentation along with excellent service.

Recommendable!! No disadvantages, and many advantages: interesting entrees (such as sweet pepper with meat), probably one of only few chances for pre-hispaci appetizers (worms, ants' eggs, crickets) and a great choice of tequilas and mezcal, Worth trying!
