Simply put: EXTRAORDINARY! We were received warmly, even though we did not have a reservation. Excellent food, service, ambiance and price. It can get pretty crowded so I recommend to make reservations (we were lucky).

The place was packed. Service was good and friendly. Food was not consistent. The appetizers were soggy and average. Mole is really good but cold. I know it is rated as one of the best but try to find more local options.

Management response:

Hello Patz. Thank you for visiting us. Tacos Arabes as much of the food from Puebla come from the richness of the mixtures of cultures. Puebla was a crossroad between Europe, Asia and America, that reflects on its culinary legacy. Hope to see you again...More

Although you will have to wait, the food and service will make it worth it. The house is quite pretty and the dishes while quite classic, are not less than you can expect. Try it!

We had a little trouble getting served (staff mix up, I think) but once we did we had a very nice dinner and drinks. Our waiter was unable to tell us about the murals, unfortunately.

Thank Jane L
Management response:

Hi Jane! Thank you for your visit. Murals are part of our culture, through them we try to show the culture of Puebla and Mexico. The Mural of Mexican Sayings is a mixture of wisdom and laughness. Hope to see you again!
