Great food, the soft shell crab tacos were awesome. The octopus was cooked perfectly which was a welcome change compared to most places.

Usual Argentinian Steak House, a little bit fancier maybe but for no reason. The food was good, the service a little bit snobbish. Seating in a covered courtyard uncomfortable due noise and lack of room. Anyway, the food was good and as expected.

You might think Puebla is a gourmet destination. You would be wrong. La Encomienda is a stake house with some original dishes that bring something different to a boring city. Good food, good service. Nothing outstanding, though.

Excellent meat restaurant. The best service and attention, from the hostess, waiters, everyone exceptional. In this restaurant, I have tried the best beef ribs in my life, they cook the ribs for 24 hours. Highly recommended. Prices mid-high.
