Here's the deal. I live in Mexico City. I eat at many outstanding restaurants here all-year-long. This place is open Thursday-Friday-Saturday-Sunday. It is cash only. Not kid friendly. Funky neighborhood. The service is typical of what I find at most restaurants in Mexico. This is...More

The place is small and very traditional. This restaurant was highly recommended but the food was usual. Get early because the plates are limited and they finish. It is a good experience of Mexican food.

Don't have to travel to Puebla to experience Pueblas top gastronomic experience. Everything perfect from starters to the best mole´t feel I have ever tasted to a delicious Arroz con Leche. Food wasn´t heavy when we finished.

Out of the way in Colonia Observatorio, this place has fantastic food and service. There were six of us and we all agreed that we could have spent the afternoon eating the chalupitas and drinking beer, but when we ordered the main plates, we were...More

This place has a great taste for homemade mexican food...however the service is terrible!! Since it is family owned still, which it is part of their success, they open when they want to...and close when they want to. Their schedule is very tight on weekdays,...More
