Our group of about 25 people stopped here for lunch during an organized tour of Puebla and Cholula. We were seated in a dining area with portraits of Spanish lords adorning the walls. The four-course lunch was included in the price of the tour. My lunch included cheese bread (melted cheese on a slice of toast bread), cream soup, tuna... More

We stopped into this place while on a tour of Puebla. Had the mole chicken and while the mole sauce was good, everything else was average. If I was back in town again I wouldn't give it another chance.

The food was very good and the pancakes were enormous! The room is also gorgeous with a glass domed ceiling and vintage architecture. The whole hotel is this way too. I felt very comfortable here.

We were staying at this historic hotel, which we liked, and ate here on our night of arrival. We don't usually eat in hotel restaurants, but we were tired and hadn't yet explored. We had a roast chicken dish and a roast pork dish. Both were dry, even though the pork was smothered in a rather non-descript gravy and accompanied... More

Very good food, friendly service and a great setting. We enjoyed a four course lunch at a very reasonable cost. Our evening meal was served at short notice and again the service was excellent, the food great. Mole is their specialty; while I'm not a great fan, it is very popular.

The restaurant in the Hotel Colonial is certainly adequate if you are staying there, as I was. I would not go out of my way to eat there however since Puebla abounds with good food.

This restaurant came highly recommended by the staff at our hotel. We ordered the chiles en nogada (poblano chile stuffed with fruits and covered with a walnut sauce), which were delicious. But beware: they are HUGE! We thought there were two chiles under the tnogada sauce, they were so big. Plus, they are very rich, so none of us could... More

Each day, a 5 course "meal of the day" special is offered. It is usually around $9.00 (US) or $105 pesos. On weekends, the price is a little higher but the food offerings are more extensive. Food is excellent, service comparable to a 5 star restaurant, value unbelievable! And, of course, you may order "a la carte" off of the... More
