Santa Catarina serves authentic interior Mexican food, and it is very tasty. The two owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Highly recommended.

Stopped for lunch while on vacation. There were four people in our party, and all of us were duly impressed. Best enchilada suiza I've ever had, with a fresh, distinctive flavor. Savory rice and black beans, not cooked to a mush like many Mexican restaurants. 5 stars for the food, 3 for the atmosphere.

We came here for brunch and it really hit the spot! Loved the outdoor seating and they have live music all day. I personally really liked that it was instrumental in the morning, really helps to relax. Authentic Mexican food, done mostly by hand which I loved, and I admire their effort to reduce their carbon footprint print.

place very clean and serve great. Mexica Taco soup was just what was needed when the temperature was 17 degrees. Had sports on TV and great music playing as you ate.

I went here with my sons for dinner. The atmosphere is great and all of the staff was very pleasant. The menu has a different twist to normal Tex mex food. I ordered the salsa verde enchiladas and my son ordered the enchiladas with chipotle sauce. The sopes were delicious. Not many Mexican restaurants have these on the menu, but... More

We ate here for lunch. Ordered 3 appetisers and the lunch specials. The quesadillas were the only decent item that we ordered. The rest was very mediocre. Also very expensive -$90 (with tip) for two people.

No frills, but good and fresh with a wide and varied menu. If we were locals, we'd come often and work our way through the whole menu! Great service, reasonable prices.

I love the food here. I have never had a bad meal or a bad cocktail. It is a great place for young and old, although not great for toddlers.

We really enjoyed eating at Santa Catarina. A Mexican restaurant, but the food is a cut above the typical Tex-Mex found in Austin. The menu includes excellent sea food and steak plates with a Mexican touch. The food is fresh and the variety good. As an appetizer, try the queso fundido -- out of this world. Service was a bit...
