Three of us stopped in this place for a late dinner, arriving probably just as they were hoping to close up. We were warmly welcomed, and quickly given menus in English. The choices were interesting and varied, and all were enjoyable. Good value and nice ambience.

Must try the enchiladas de tres moles which is exquisite. Has a very good service and the guacamole is also very good. The location we chose Av. 3 poniente #920 is by far the best place since it has much more space and I hear even better service.

We were greeted by friendly staff, with just the right amount of interaction and helpful advice on the choices. Hands down, our favorites were the Tinga & the Mixiote. That was amazing!! I will be trying to replicate that at home for sure.

Nice restaurant with regional cusine. The Enchiladas de tres Moles (mole, pipian verde, pipian rojo) are excellent as well as the Chile relleno en nogada which is also excellent.

great place to eat, although they could surely invest in decoration. the food is excellent, service is good. Go for the traditional Puebla dishes, they really know how to cook them. avoid the international dishes, like crepas... they aren't good at all.

This is a review for supper on October 12, 2016 This was the second restaurant recommended to us by a close friend who is from this area (the other being Tacos Israel).

A restaurant that has been in Puebla for many many years and is historically significant. A wonderful ambience and restaurant interior. Super friendly waitstaff. True, it is a destination for tourist (there are two locations). But don't let that deter you as the food is truly excellent. Especially, plan to order at least one order of mixiote for your table.... More
