El Granero is an EXCELLENT choice when visiting Monterrey. Their main fare is steaks and "Cabrito" (roasted suckling goat), but they also have other more traditional dishes.

It is a good example of the Northern Mexican food, mostly based on meat.

I always keep it simple: start off with a huge bowl of Guacamole (delicious), maybe a melted cheese with "Chorizo", and a plate of "Atropellado" (literally meaning: "run over by a car") which is the famous northern dry meat (Machaca) in a great tasting sauce.

Main course: Steak, of course. My favorite: "Agujas Norteñas" - "Nothern Needles" (sometimes hard to get...you might want to pre-order when making the reservation). A marvelous "on the bones" Rib Eye, with the ribs cut pointy as in a "needle" (hence the name).

Some dessert (good and plentiful menu) and you're done for the day (literally) having tasted some of the best the Mexican Northeast has to offer.

The best location is the large room upstairs, with the view to one of Monterrey's nicest areas (Calzada del Valle), and YES, smoking IS allowed there...sorry... the ventilation works perfectly and you'll survive!!!!

You will NOT be disappointed.

Have been multiple times to the restaurant and always had excellent food, the service is superb, I think the best service I have received in any restaurant in the world, the staff is friendly and they know their business, my favorite dish is the cabrito en salsa but sometimes prefer the costillas de rib eye. The best of Monterrey

This restaurant is well located, the room is nice and the piano player creates a good mood at the dinner.

The starters are ok!..... But what justify my review is the main dishes!..... I was expecting something a lot better, since it was recommended to me as a very good restaurant.

The menus should be reduced!.... Literally, not the number of options but the size of the paper, it seems like you are reading a Outdoor sign!...

For the pice range I was expecting a more "refined" and detail oriented restaurant.

To repeat only if someone invites and insist to go there.

Thin is a nice opción for aún Aniversary dinner. I love this place, the medallones a las tres pimientas, a meat plate, is the best Everest try.
Highly recomended. Enjoy!

One of the nice restaurants in town. Is a must if you want to have a very good lunch or dinner.
Reservations are suggested. Ask for tables close to the window. Those are the best. Be aware that smoking is allowed in main room.
