Attentive service and amazing molotes!

The restaurant was elegant and so I was expecting to pay more. But I felt that the price was very reasonable. Our server was friendly, attentive, and gave us good suggestions for our choice of entrees. Each one of us thought that we had the best meal of the evening. But what stands out for me... read more

The location is very modern. I felt like I was enjoying reading at a nice restaurant in the US with the food of Oaxaca. Breakfast is great, and am looking forward to dinner.

Had a fantastic, and very large, breakfast here with friends. Would recommend the stuffed french toast - but not if you're on a diet!

We had lunch during the week. No issues to find a table I guess due to low season. The service is really good and they try to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Food is good. All taste very good. We brought a brownie and a banana pie home. They were excellent. I should rate them more than 5... More

My husband and I ate a number of meals at the Terra-Cotta and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them! The waiters and waitresses were very friendly and the service was impeccable.

I had Tortilla Soup and Mixed Salad with honey dressing, my husband had lasagne. Both were excellent choices with large portions. Carrot cake for dessert was delicious and also large enough for two. Terra Cotta is situated so you can look out onto the streets of La Crucecita. Very clean, excellent wait personnel, most of whom speak English. Prices are... More

My husband and I were exploring La Crucecita on foot, in 90+ degree heat. Less hungry than hot, we ducked in here for a quick, late lunch in A/C comfort. Started with a margarita, got a tequila-infused snowball of deliciousness mounded high in a glass. Moved on to tortilla soup, the litmus test of mexican food. It was great, especially... More

Terra-Cotta is right there on the corner of town square park. We have gone there again and again as a family with kids for great breakfast which includes several Mexican and local options. It might get real busy sometimes as Terra-Cotta is popular among local families at least for Sunday brunch. Make sure you get Terra-Cotta's coffee which is fantastic!... More
