Back again!

Visited this restaurant twice, in mid March. The food was, as expected, superb. Their pate is as good as I have tasted anywhere. The staff, as usual, were very polite and attentive without being overbearing. This is a 'MUST NOT' miss experience for everyone visiting Huatulco.

Good menu and wine list. Friendly helpful staff. Well worth a visit. Close to the road, but generally no problem for noise or fumes

In Santa Cruz, this restaurant provides well prepared food, beautifully presented and friendly and professional service. We had the Patè and the Shrimp Cocktail as appetizers, followed by my wife having the Red Snapper and Shrimp special, and I had the ribs. Everything was first class. We will return for our last meal before heading home to the frozen north... More

On our third trip to this fine restaurant I did get that hamburger and it was the best! The waiter remembered our group and said there was no limit on burgers this time! Obviously the restaurant is tops - three trips there in a week!

After waiting a couple of weeks to eat here, we finally got in! We ordered the 'Plat du Jour' which was a red snapper fillet with shrimp in a shrimp bisque sauce.... Unsure if it was red snapper, the five mini shrimp were the size of my pinky and the sauce was very bland - no seasonings, no spice, no... More

....wish I could have one! I've been to this fine restaurant twice on this vacation and twice I haven't been able to get the best hamburger!

Definitely one of the must go to restaurants in Santa Cruz. We were fortunate to be able to dine here twice on our stay. The food is amazing, service was fantastic, and a great ambiance. But definitely make reservations, as we saw many people turned down because they were fully booked. Look forward to going back again some day!

This by far the best restaurant in Huatulco. Chef Oliver and his wife offer always fresh food prepared with an international flair. What makes this restaurant great is that the food is always great, priced reasonable and served with international expertease.

If one appreciates fine cuisine, prepared by a talented chef and front of the restaurant run by an equally experienced, finessed woman: La Terraza is your destination. Diana and Chef Olivier operate the finest restaurant in the Huatulco area. Chef’s experienced is unequaled: from La Rochelle cooking school in France, to cooking in France, Italy, Switzerland and Mexico City. The... More
