You honestly can't go wrong with what you order here. The best thing my brother and I got was this stew looking entré with the perfect amount of heat! The space is bright and has a lot of antiques, but is also very quiet. It is like enjoying lunch at your grandmothers... If she is from Puebla, that is!

We enjoyed one dinner at this lovely B&B. Every dish was perfect and creative, traditional with a twist. The squash blossom and the fried parsley salads were imaginative, beautiful and wonderful. The soups were full of flavor. The moles were rich and dreamy. The mole Sacristia with chicken was especially delicious. And dessert, yummmm..... You MUST have a dinner here... More

Not only is the food traditional poblano but the environment is tranquil along with live music in the evenings. The cooking class instructed by Chef Alonso Hernandez and his assistant Elizabeth is a superior and fun experience. The hotel/restaurant is located in a lovely area of Puebla, so take a stroll after dining on the fine food.

We came here for lunch with our three young kids (5, 3, 1). At first I was uneasy about lunching given the plethora of antiques and decoration objects in the beautiful courtyard the kids could break but the staff was so warm and efficient that the kids did not even have the chance to break a thing. I ordered the... More

While staying at this hotel and being asked repeatedly if we have eaten at the restaurant, we decided to give it a try. I had read the mixed reviews so went in "armed" with some awareness, especially regarding portion sizes. As a result, and not being overly hungry, we ordered an appetizer of chalupas and 2 soups; one sopa de... More

This is a TA highly rated restaurant in Puebla and we went there based on these recommendations. On the positive side, it is a truly funky place with plenty of space and a cute 'Confessions Bar' which could probably tell some stories. On the downside, only one waiter spoke any English at all and the food is purely Mexican. One... More

Nice establishment with great decor and service. As for the food, the servings were huge (somewhat unnecessary) and the prices were very reasonable. We really enjoyed our dinner here but there was one plate in particular which I think should be avoided: pollo en chiltepin. The spice and heat level on this dish was simply unbearable. Overall a good dining... More

Simply one of the best restaurants I have been to in the world. If you are not happy with the food and atmosphere here, you are either VERY unlucky, or not alive. The Mole sampler is heaven. The Arrachera is perfect. The soup are amazing. There is only one other place I would choose over this in the Puebla/Cholula area.... More

Meson Sacristia de la Compania is located in a beautiful colonial building in the heart of one of Puebla's oldest neighborhoods, known for its antique market. We lived in Puebla for many years and got to know its regional food. This restaurant had by far the best moles, pipians, and other regional specialties. The price was moderate considering the quality... More
