Great place for some traditional Mexican food.

This was our first place to eat once we arrived in town. Food was good....quick service...& very very reasonable prices. I had some fish tacos which were very good.

We were staying at an all-inclusive but wanted to try some of the great little places in La Crucecita and went back to this place 4 times for the fish tacos and the shrimp tacos! One night, we tried the El Pastor - which was also great! The people there were so nice - we also ate at the more... More

This restaurant has been one of my favorites since I started going to Huatulco in 2001. It has been 3 years since we had been and I had to go back to my staple place. Unfortunately it isn't the same flavor and quality it we once was. I even have it a second chance, we've been here 2 days and... More

The first surprise was the menu, quite extensive and varied. The second surprise was the price, so accessible. The third and most striking surprise was the taste, very, very tasty. I highly recommend their mole. If you visit Los Portales once, you’ll find yourself coming back for more. Bon Appétit!

The best place to watch parades and all happenings in the zocalo while eating great traditional Mexican food. Personal favorites here are the Plato Cubano, the Vegetarian Fajita, shrimp tostada and cold corona. The owner, Luis, always makes time to visit and make you feel welcome. Many years ago this was the first restaurant we went to in Huatulco...probably ate... More

Guacamole was to die for, fish tacos and nachos good but not outstanding. Great for people watching. For more privacy, gourmet food and a wine list, go upstairs to ONIX.

I had the best dish I've ever had in Mexico at Los Portales. Shrimp Aguachiles! It is similar to a ceviche or crudo, with cilantro, lime juice, jalapenos and cucumber. A very cold beer and call it a day! Overall, everything we had there Wes delicious. Will be coming back.

Delicious tacos!!!!! We enjoyed everything about Los Portales. Great location, just in front of the square, very good service, and inexpensive. We will definitely be back. Overall Los Portales has a great atmosphere that gives you a true sense of Mexico.
