The restaurant is located at the historical center of Puebla, two blocks away from the Zocalo and the Cathedral.It is quite typical and you can enjoy the great cuisine from Puebla like the mole and even dishes like escamoles (ant eggs). When I was there there restaurant was not crowded (it was a week day) and the service was ok. I would come back.

A great variety of local dishes, well made! The huazontle was very good, the "pescado empapelado" too; please try mole, of course. They prepare it very well...

As usual the food here is good (although not great), but the service is lowering its quality, we were a party of four but the waiter kept forgetting what we ordered, we went on Sunday, the restaurant was half it's capacity but the dishes lasted long being served.

Well located, just a couple of blocks from the cathedral. If one is to go by the quantity of locals that frequent the place, one can feel assured that the place serves good food. And it does. The restaurant is old world and very cozy. Service was very good.

Went with a few friends, each trying a different mole. All were excellent. If you go only once, my recommendation would be the medallions of beef with 3 different mole sauces. This way you get to taste different ones. all were excellent.

All in all, a good evening, where everyone enjoyed what they ate. Will go back.

Me and two other friends went for lunch at this traditional corner of Puebla and I have to say everything was delightful. Highly recommend the Mole or any of their house specials. Wouldn't recommend the margaritas at this place, however they replaced mine for another drink immediately after expressing my dissatisfaction. Will dine here again on my next visit to Puebla.
