Great food, but a little pricy. Service and atmosphere are top notch. Seems to be popular among discerning locals as well hotel guests and walking by tourists.

I stayed at Mision de los Arcos for 3 nights. This was my first time visiting Huatulco and I didn't know what to expect in the town. I decided to try the hotel restaurant, Terra-Cotta, the first night out of convenience and was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices were considering the upscale environment. I was expecting inflated prices... More

Nice decor, decent size menu, consistently open at convenient times, decent staff/service, tasty food (some items better than others but I did not try anything bad in the dozen times I went during my vacation), and generally fair prices given the above relative to my visits to other restaurants in the area. Id give this 4.5 if I could.

Have eaten here a few time now and have never been disappointed. The ambience is somewhat upscale but the prices are reasonable and the service is great. Great choice for a special night out.

We wanted a break from our hotel and decided to try this place. I had a steak and It was pretty decent. It can be hard to find a good steak down there. The prices were similar to what you would find back home. Seems odd as most people say how cheap things are in Mexico. Hmmm The atmosphere was... More

I stayed in Mision de los Arcos (the Hotel above the restaurant) in April. The restaurant was a bonus surprise to a great stay. Sam, the owner, is a body builder. The restaurant menu choices reflect healthy choices (if you decide -- or you can always eat the pizza too - jaja). Over the course of a few days we... More
