“Delicious mole I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We stayed at Marriott in Puebla. This restaurant is located in main building of the hotel. They provide "International food", but I strongly recommend to eat mole. Mole is mexican traditional food in Puebla. Each restaurants provide different way. Most of them I ate were strong taste for me, but La Fonda prepared mild and flavorful. If you are new to mole, I strongly suggest you should try there.
Also, I recommend a drink, that is " Naranjada". This is also mexican common drink, which is a fresh orange juice diluted with natural water or sparkling water. They really sqeeze real orange which is very fresh and tasty.
Their service is also good. The manager always looks to all the customer,our weiter Cesar was very helpful and friendly.

“Great Chiles en Nogada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The best chile en nogada I've ever eaten. Made fresh right there while you wait. Nice looking restaurant and it's been there for 60 years. Also had some mole poblano, which is excellent.
