Had a very nice and scenic dinner here. Kiddy corner from the back of the Cathedral and across the street park. We had a balcony view of both of them. Very good authentic local food and drinks. The appetizer platter was very enjoyable as were the main dishes. The staff was friendly and did a good job of taking care... More

After a long day touring we went to their rooftop to relax and admire the view. We only had drinks but the service was very good. Wasnt the cheapest but you expect that when you have a view like we did.

We were on our way to Oaxaca and on the run we stop to eat at "Mi viejo pueblito- Autopista". The 4 of us loved the food and the warm service of the staff. The restaurant is a small location but colorful and beautiful place, when you enter to the location it does take you to a different environment that... More

This place was on my list of recommended restaurants, but didn't live up to expectations. The decor was nice, the service good. But the food was cold, and the mixed vegetables served with the chicken dish seemed either canned or steamed and reheated. The only saving grace was the dessert of apple strudel with nut sauce, and the fact that... More

From the street, this place looks like all the other cafes that ring the Zocalo (old town square). But, it extends upward 3 storeys, and we ate up on the rooftop which offers a spectacular view over the cathedral and square. Although it is a chain restaurant, the menu was interesting and extensive. Food was good. A group of us... More

This place, located just under the East side arches of the city's main square (zocalo) is a decent option for those tourists who do not dare wandering into the narrow alleys in search of better and more typical places to eat. The food is quite good and prepared according to traditional recipes, and also the prices are acceptable despite its... More

This is a great little franchise that has a varied menu, great appetizers, and fast friendly service. I had the arrachera and it was very tasty, too bad I filled up so much on the appetizers.

This restaurant has one of the best view in downtown Puebla. Beautiful restaurant, I recommend you to eat at the top of the building, the patio is very nice with the Catedral's view at the back. But be careful, when you are trying to pay they will charge you two different tickets, one for meals, one for drinks. Life music... More

This is a historic decor with local specialities with a great view of the Zocalo from the second floor including the Cathedral at night. Very impressive view and a beautiful Zocalo with fountains , trees , lights and filled with people. Very safe at night.

This restaurant gets one star from me because the waitpeople and hostess completely ignored me for 15 minutes. The place was not busy, and the employees were standing around talking. When I finally got up and left, I walked right by the hostess and a waiter, who looked right at me and said absolutely nothing.
