With 2 others in the dining area at 9 AM, a well prepared omelette came out tepid, presumably a function of our server's in attendance. After we requested a second pot of coffee, hoping this one would be hot, the coffee was still slightly warm, at best. Our hotel breakfast at the close by Hotel Colonial was much better and... More

My wife and I were invited to this restaurant by our traveling friends who have eaten there before on a prior trip. When we walked in there was only one other table with 4 persons being served, the rest of the place was empty. This is usually not a good sign, but we were soon to be impressed. The ambiance...

I never expect the dining room in a hotel where one is staying to be good. But this one was great. Great food, really. Good old fashioned service too. And ambience was wonderful.

We had the Chile en Nogada dish as we were there during the festival. It was amazing !!! Great wine and food. Lovely live music. It has an open roof that is covered with a tarp so it did mist a little bit during a torrential downpour outside.

It`s place in a renovated colonial house, with a twist of modern design. Food and service is very good. Try the entries, and ask for recomendations of chef. Sure you will get surprise,

Large breakfast buffet plus menu. Excellent choices and delicious food. Smiling ,friendly efficient staff. All watched over by a beautiful, gigantic ceramic Mexican woman. Hence the name..... If you travel to Puebla, do not miss it.

Ok, so I have never written a review before, but felt compelled to write one for this place. I grew up in Puebla, and always heard stories about the famous China Poblana. My mother (as a child) often walked by this mansion in hopes to get a peek at the interior whenever the great wooden carved doors were left open.... More

We did not stay at the hotel but came here specifically for the brunch. It opened at 0800 in the morning and we came around 0830. It must have been too early for other travelers because we were the only ones there. Great variety of food that showcased the city specialties of Puebla. The hotel/restaurant is the old house of...

Dropped by Casona resto for breakfast, after finding the place where we ate yesterday was closed. The food was delicious, the ambience great and the service was just amazing. It was not very busy, which may account for the great service, but one of the waiters went out of his way to engage and look after us. The prices were... More

I was most disappointed with my Chile en Nogado. Perhaps it's regional, but I expected a ground meat filling and mine was filled with what looked like a bean mixture. Also, the poblano chile was very heavily breaded. Not worth $170.
