Great place on the zocolo for lunch or snacks

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.

We had breakfast at Los Portales almost every day during our 7 day stay in Huatulco. The Huevos Divorciados and the Machaca con Huevos are really good!! For lunch or dinner I recommend Tacos al Pastor and any of the Fajitas. I also tried the Mezcal and a nice cold beer while listening to the strolling musicians playing the marimba... More

I can't miss the shrimp tacos every time I visit Huatulco. Mouthwatering Mexican and Seafood at a great price. Since location is very important for us Los Portales is just across the street from el zocalo and has a nice view.

Love this place, every time I go down to Huatulco I just hang out at Los Portales. This place is well known for its location in the main plaza, I could sit here for hours enjoying and getting a glimpse of what life is like in Mexico. I strongly recommend the Mezcal drinks, they are deliciously mixed like in no... More

The food at Los Portales Tacos & Mariscos was wonderful! The most delicious mezcal (smoky tequila) mixed drinks we ever had! We tried several items on the menu as we went back a few times to Los Portales Tacos & Mariscos and Onix, (located upstairs) for breakfast, lunch or dinner during our 7 day stay in Huatulco. Service was always... More

Right on the zocalo, in the heart of town, good food is turned out quickly here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The tacos des camarons are my favourites however everything is fresh and flavourful with great pica de gallo,cold beer and magaritas too.
