Restaurant is a little bit pricey but it worth to do the stop once. Compared to other places/countries, prices are very reasonable for high quality food. Mole... read more

We went to la China Poblana today per the suggestion of my host family here in Puebla. We wanted to try the chiles en Nogada. Our server was so nice, and the food came out surprisingly quickly. I enjoyed the restaurant and would definitely return!

I really had a delicious meal, with food typical of the place but interpreted in a sophisticated way, very well presented, rich and abundant. The atmosphere is very nice as the restaurant is in an old colonial house and the owner is charming. The price is good for what you get

We went here for a light lunch, in spite of the fact that the restaurant was empty. The setting, a colonial courtyard, was elegant. The service was impeccable. I had the poblano soup, which contained mushrooms, corn, slices of pepper, onions and squash flowers. It was delicious. My partner had the Caesar salad with chicken...it was expertly prepared at the... More

Walked in without expecting much. Sr. Flores was very accommodating and since some of the people in our party were vegetarian they were able to accommodate it. Great service. Will be back.

Expensive and not worth the money. The taste is really not there and there are plenty of other options around for less.

A beautiful spot, excellent service, good margherita, good guacamole. So we expected a good main dish. But what a dissapointment! The sauces could not taste cheaper und the shrimps in coconut-crust were simply uneatibel.
