My husband and I decided to try this place out and we were very impressed, we loved the selections of dishes. The one we went to is in Cedar Park, TX. We really enjoyed our experience. The food and the service were excellent! We will definitely be taking visitors to this place. It was a bit pricey, but well worth... More

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...

Interior Mexican not Tex-Mex. I love the Cochinita Pibil, Guacamole and Ceviche at Santa Catarina. The Maragaritas are to die for!

This is a great Mexican restaraunt if you want to have something different. I love the Cochinita Pibil, yummy pork wrapped up in a banana leaf. Served with all the regular sides plus these amazing pickled onions. Don't forget to eat them. They add something amazing to the dish. House Margarita is great. Don't waste your money on a top...

Having recently moved to the Lakeway area, my husband and I were looking for a good "go to" Mexican restaurant that is close by. I think we may have found it! Admittedly, we have only been for happy hour were drinks are $1-$2 off and appetizers are half price. We typically order a drink or two and spilt a few... More

The food was gorgeous and tasty, featuring a choice of sauces and dishes from interior Mexico. Service was attentive. It was easy to talk with my colleague.

I love their food and service. And try to not eat too many chips so that you can have dessert! I have had them all!

Their menu has quite a variety, including some lesser known Mexican Dishes. I opted for traditional Beef Fajitas and was very pleased with the seasoning and portion size. I also ordered a Texas Martini. It was served in a shaker, but did miss the absence of Jalapeno stuffed Olives. This is a place I would go back to again and... More

The salsa was not great - it was pretty sour and not spicy. I ordered fajitas and they were not great either.
