You must go more than once!

I stayed at the adjoining hotel and it was a perfect combination. The owner Thierry is wecoming in multiple languages. If you just want a nice salad order the 'Four Season' salad. The fish is amazing. Oh, and the pasta carbonara...great! If you stay at Thierry's hotel Eden Costa there is no... read more

We went twice the food was so good. Try the fish soup with rouille, the fish brochette, and don't miss the chocolate mousse, rich and dark. Best restaurant in Huatulco.

Great food! Great service! Pasta dishes were served hot and very tasty! The red snapper fillet was cooked to perfection! We will definitely go back!

It had been several years since our previous visit to this restaurant and my memory was of a reasonable, but not memorable, Thai meal. So when a friend, who knows the owner-chef quite well, suggested we go there as her guests and said that she would place an advance order for osso buco for the three of us, we readily... More

Attached to a small hotel and somewhat difficult to locate. The food was superb as well as the service. A good find in Huatulco.

We had the opportunity to have Christmas Dinner here, by making reservations online. The owner was very welcoming! Our dinners were all fantastic, but most memorable was our toddler who made a friend with another guest that evening around the pool :)

I loved this small restaurant and the food was excellent. We ended up only having appetizers as we weren't hungry for a full meal, but everything was very tasty. I love the pickled vegetables they bring to the table.

Lovely little place next to Hotel Villa Blanca (taxi drivers all know Villa Blanca). Everything was wonderful, except I found the brownie type desert quite dry; however the other dishes and my drink were top notch for sure :-) I do recommend you try this restaurant, as I found it to be one of the best (perhaps even "the best")...
