This is a traditional breakfast and lunch place with locals and tourist. You will find traditional Mexican Food and good Moles. The Churros for breakfast are very, very good

I am not a breakfast lover such as my wife but this place is really good. The taste of the dishes is very unique, well served but above all with a very nice flavor. When the dishes are served you can notice the care and love put into every dish. I really recommend this place.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Service inpeccable, food delicious and attractively presented, a wonderful open air setting, relaxed fine dining. It's a little hard to find. You have to pass through the entrance to the University Museum and cross an open courtyard to get to the restaurant entrance. I've posted photos of the entry. I went... More

One of the most elegant, traditional and fine restaurants in Puebla city downtown. It is inside a Museum and regional fine arts products, but if we want to taste sophisticated mixed with traditional flavors of Mexican food this is the place. Rather than to recommend a plate I suggest try several. Additionally as in all Mexico, service is always outstanding.

I am a big fan of this restaurant. The food has the authentic flavors of Puebla cuisine, from the bread served with chipotle butter and amouse bouche of the season (It was fresh nogada sauce when I visited). I had the Huauzontle dish which made me had like a Ratatouille moment that brought me back to my aunt's house when... More

We made our reservation at 1pm, to arrive at 3:30pm. We got there at 3:20pm, had to wait 10 mins for the table to be ready, not a big deal. After one hour of wait, they weren't able to serve us a single Cesar's salad. Very bad service from the waiter, the captain and everybody at the restaurant. At 4:40pm... More

Was here on a conference, so it was a prix fixe menu. Food was good, service was good, and loved the traditional mole poblano. Would have liked to have ordered off the real menu, but was definitely happy. Loved the dessert arrangement too.

We came here for lunch when we visited Puebla with recommendation from a friend. We ordered the Molly Chicken, a Tuna dish and another grilled chicken dish. We were quite disappointed with the chicken dishes. They were all too dry and tasteless. The only reason I gave this place a 3 star is for the decent service and the tuna... More
