This is a very unique place. Both the exterior and interior of this restaurant simulate a colonial convent. The decoration has several religious elements, and the most original touch is that the waiters and waitresses are dressed like nuns and friars, giving the food a traditional Mexican feel. And it certainly is traditional. The menu offers several entrée specialties from different parts of the country—mole, quesadillas, pozole, etc. Their prices are very reasonable.
The "Baroque" is well known for its great live music and upbeat, lively atmosphere by the hip and young Regiomontana (residents) of Monterrey. The establishment is also known for the diverse events that take place here—including book presentations, lectures, fashion shows and other events. Spacious with a unique facade painted in bronze with flags hanging from its walls, bands play here regularly. Do not miss Friday night entertainment when there is an open bar.
This is a very romantic restaurant, with a very formal atmosphere and excellent service. It is a good choice to go with your partner to enjoy the house specialties. The decoration simulates a Neapolitan trattoria. Checkered tablecloths, candles on the tables, and a cozy fireplace for cold days are some of the elements of the decoration. Besides trying their pastas, you must leave space for dessert—their cakes are very good, specially accompanied by a cappuccino.
To get away from the conventional, this restaurant is an excellent option. Its atmosphere is completely Polynesian style, and each and every one of the decorative details is taken care of. When you enter this place, it is like transporting yourself to some Pacific island. Its menu is very varied, and includes diverse dishes of poultry and fish, prepared with exotic dressings and original ingredients. The atmosphere is formal and very adequate for a romantic dinner or an exceptional business meal. The service is quick and attentive.
An elegant and finely decorated place where, after a morning of shopping, you may enjoy delicious traditional Mexican food. Among the great dishes, it is possible to taste exquisite huitlacoche turnover pies or a Tlalpeño broth. You may also have fillet medallions, mushrooms in garlic, quail in pea dressing or a "three generation" grilled dish. To drink, you may order a good aged tequila to start with and dark beer or a good fine red or white wine, to accompany your dish.
With more than 50 restaurant locations throughout the country, the speciality is the traditional fried corn gorditas (little fat ones) filled with a variety of ingredients served piping hot over the counter. The freshly-made gorditas are sliced in half, stuffed and served instantly. Not a place for good conversation in lovely surroundings, but it is a good option for a quick lunch.
This is one of the most traditional and well-known restaurants in all of Monterrey for cabrito (kid goat). Politicians, artists and other celebrities gather here for the popular, regional fare. Cuts of grilled meat, soups and abundant side dishes such as rice and beans are also on the menu. There is a playground for children while adults enjoy the meal to mariachi music and other Mexican bands. The establishment is truly a taste of Monterrey culture at its best.
For those with good appetites, this place offers a very generous buffet at inexpensive prices. Soups, salad bars, American style dishes and exquisite cakes, for a small amount. Now, if you prefer a more elaborate main dish, there is a second menu that, for a slightly higher sum, offers cuts of meat to choose from. The decor is modern and simple, with booths and modern style background music. The atmosphere is suitable for families and executives alike, although it is really suitable for anyone.
Since opening in 1931, "The Uncle" as it is known locally, has become one of the most famous restaurants in Monterrey. Specializing in regional dishes such as cabrito (kid goat) and machaca (dried meat), the menu is varied and includes international cuisine. It is spacious and decorated with bull and bovine themes. The terrace has plants and romantic candles to set the mood. The owners provide personalized attention.
When young people go out, they head to the Barrio Antiguo—the old part of town. Eighty percent of the city's nightlife is found along these narrow streets and on Calle Padre Mier one of the most popular bars is found here. The "Old River Bar" has a simple and uncomplicated approach to its decoration. People flock here after dining in a restaurant nearby to listen to good music, dance and enjoy. Live bands play commercial hits in the evenings.
Definitely the best view of the city is in this restaurant located on the highest part of Chipinque Ecological Park. In the midst of dense woods of coniferous trees, you can find this place in which first class international dishes are offered. Although El Mirador opens early, it is at night when the city of Monterrey may be appreciated best, through its large windows. Subtle illumination, classic wooden furnishings, and good wines to accompany your meal.
Near the main hotels in Monterrey, in the downtown area of the city, we find this restaurant, where it is possible to treat yourself to innovative and succulent specialties which vary day after day. You may, for example, have a shrimp brochette in cardinal sauce, with gruyere cheese and au gratin. If you are a seafood lover, Friday is the best day of week to enjoy their specialties. The restaurant has a covered parking lot.
