Order the red snapper special with shrimp the food arrived at the table. I took a bite...... called the waiter to the table to let him know, the red snapper was telapia......he said, the fisherman that sells the fish,said it was red snapper. The most annoying thing is, that I'm from the coast of Mexico. I grew up fishing, so... More

We ate at the restaurant twice in our visit and the food was excellent both times we went. We chose different meals each time we went and every course was cooked perfectly. The staff including the chef/owner Oliver were extremely good and helpful. It was the best meal and restaurant in the area. I would highly recommend making a reservation... More

We were in Huatulco for a week and ate at La Terraza for dinner twice. Everything we ordered was excellent and the prices were reasonable. It's a small quaint restaurant with excellent service. I highly recommend it!

Small, popular restaurant that doesn't accept credit cards so beware!! Clearly a 'must visit' restauarant. The food was excellent and we eventually managed to get a table outside. Waiter was attentive and price very reasonable.

We have eaten at La Terraza many times over the years. The food and service are first class. We enjoy sitting out on the terrace and enjoying a leisurely meal. The caesar salad, paté, red snapper, pasta, hamburgers and beef medallions are some of our favourites on the menu. Any of the fish specials for the evening are outstanding! One... More

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.

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!
