The atmosphere is very very special and crowded of Mexicans which means it is a place of good food for them. Wide range of dishes. I have eaten better Mexican food but this one was OK. When shopping or idling in this area this is a good bet.

During a visit to Monterrey I had both lunch and dinner at the 2 locations of Las Monjitas. Great food, fast service and unbeatable prices. The waitresses dress as nuns and the decor of the restaurant is worth seeing.

The "nun-themed" Monjitas restaurant is in the center of Monterrey and provides an affordable mexican food. The ambience is fun and characteristic, but food is at best average. Cost is cheap

A local friend with whom I studied at Universidad de Monterrey took me there. She said the food was home made style and cheap, she eats there on a daily basis. The place is run by nuns, it is not 'designed as a convent' and the waitresses are not 'dresses as nuns'. It is a part of convent and they... More

Possibly the worst food I have ever ordered anywhere. My partner ordered flautas and I ordered chille relleno. When the food arrived we had one bite and could not believe how much oil there was. Both dishes were clearly deep fried, and served swimming in oil. Terrible. The service was slow as well, but that didn't bother us, the food... More

We wanted to go somewhere else, but it was closed, and since we were starved, we stopped in. The waitresses were dressed as fat, disagreeable nuns. They kept up their shtick from the time we entered until we left. The restaurant, poorly designed to look like a convent (maybe?) was brightly lit, by long fluorescent tubes on the ceiling. Lots...

We went in and seated ourselves, the waitress took ten minutes to ask what we wanted after we had to go and look for menus ourselves. The place was very dirty, tables uncleared, and we decided to leave.

There are 2 locations on the pedestrian shopping mall in downtown Monterrey. Both look like churchs. The theme is nuns. The waitresses wear habits, and the interior is filled with pictures and paintings of nuns. The food is nothing special. It's not too expensive, and it's not bad .. just not special. Go for the environment. Have a beer, have... More
