Usual Argentinian Steak House, a little bit fancier maybe but for no reason. The food was good, the service a little bit snobbish. Seating in a covered courtyard uncomfortable due noise and lack of room. Anyway, the food was good and as expected.

You might think Puebla is a gourmet destination. You would be wrong. La Encomienda is a stake house with some original dishes that bring something different to a boring city. Good food, good service. Nothing outstanding, though.

Excellent meat restaurant. The best service and attention, from the hostess, waiters, everyone exceptional. In this restaurant, I have tried the best beef ribs in my life, they cook the ribs for 24 hours. Highly recommended. Prices mid-high.

Great place to eat steak, but also great entries. It is expensive but of great quality and service, totally recomended. Try the Tacos de jaiba.

Went there on 2 occassions! Family birthday dinner and Valentine's Day lunch. Nice cozy atmosphere with sophisticated decorations. Service was alright but not impressive. I was really looking forward to the quality of the food but was disappointed. Only average.

Great service, great food, very nice atmosphere. I visited this restaurant on a Wednesday night for a business dinner (2 people). We both opted for one of the beef entrées. The food was prepared to perfection. I will definitely try this one again on a future visit to Puebla.
