Great weekend menus, highly recommended. Local PUEBLA cuisine with traditional presentation and good service. Prices are very affordable and the colonial patio ambiance is both warm and authentic.

Do not be in a rush when you eat here. Enjoy the old-world service, the gorgeous setting and the excellent food. Be sure to walk around the ground floor and see the displays on the history of the hotel.

We had the famous mole upon arrival to Puebla, I was not impressed. It was basically a chicken leg covered in mole sauce with no sides. Much better options in this fabulous city. Service was slow and inconsistent. I did try breakfast and it was...More
