I went to San Carlos because my cousins recommended to go there. I had a great meal for a decent price, about 450 pesos for a nice steak. Definitely recommend it, well located not far at all from down town but not walking distance, its about a 10 min drive from downtown.

This one of the icons in Monterrey's local cuisine. It is a fancy restaurant, where the service is excellent and food is very good. The arrechera, filete, diezmillo and the rest of the meats are awesome. The cabrito was kind a dry, not the best I had while in Monterrey. Their bar options are great. After lunch I asked if...

It was a very poor experience. Even though there where four waiters over us. They don't adapt to each customer, they just do what they are used to do even if you are telling them not to. They didn't take the empty plates and left them there more time than I would like (I am obsessive with this, probably you... More

Well, the first thing I'm going to say is that the photo is restaurant San Carlos in Vasconcelos Avenue in Colonia del Valle. That restaurant is the branch which is in Morones Prieto Avenue, who is much more small, in fact it is uncomfortable having so together tables, so I'd rather not go there. San Carlos de Av. Morones Prieto... More

I just had Sunday breakfast here (I'm writing this at the table) and it was good but not great. The food was pretty fresh and reasonably varied but lacked spark. The waiters were courteous but rarely (if ever) came by to check on us, refill beverages, etc. The atmosphere is pleasant and clean. It's not a bad place for Sunday... More

Nice restaurant I did not like the service or attention of the personal who attend. The dinner was more less, I order chest goat and was kind of dry. They have good Bar, I take some Tequila shots, beer. The kits like the desserts.
