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.

The food is good and nicely presented but the best part for me was the dessert! The churros with hot chocolate were so good we wanted more! (Even after a huge meal) and my boss didn't mind at all breaking her diet for the Gloria ice cream and the café de olla.

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!
