MOnterrey used to be known for charcoal grilled meat, not anymore! La buena Barra does offer an excellent prime rib but their other creations are probably better. The "tacos de Jaiba Desnuda" (soft shell crab Tacos) are amazing, the "cochinillo" is superb. SErvice is good and their gin cart takes you to a great London Restaurant. Excellent.

Declining, quality and Price/quality ratio. Use to be a favorite not any more. Maybe popularity is hurting. Service although acceptable, also used to be outstanding.

Sometimes Im afraid of going expensive places, because its not always related to quality. In this case it totally worth it. From the beggining to the end, fron the entrees to the dessert. We order, beef, tuna, guacamole,chile en nogada, black beans soup. And evertything was really outstanding.

The Salt Block Tenderloin was outstanding. The more I travel to the Monterrey area and get to explore it, the more I enjoy what the city has to offer. This dining experience was exceptional and the staff was extremely prompt. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in the San Pedro area.

Visited this place for business meeting. In every each plate that I tried, could sense how many concentrations are poured to the dish. T bone stake was also wonderful but I can not forget chicharron with sliced red onions! Every waiters in the restaurant were also very friendly and polite.

You can end up asking for the same thing from 4 different servers without getting it, and I'm saying simple stuff like a coke or a fork. The joint is also extremely expensive and though the quality of the food is worth... More
