La comida perfecta!

The meal was perfect! I ordered some pasta with shrimps and shrimps tacos. It was delicious! The pineapple water was so cool! In fact the nest restaurant in huatulco. A little expensive ($400 pesos) for 2 persons. Includes tips.

Prices are good, cheaper than other restaurants but you will feel loke being in a very expensive restaurant in Huatulco. If you wanna take your wife/gf for a romantic dinner in Huatulco, this is the place. Soups and meats are wonderful. Fully recommended!

This restaurant's number 1 rating on Trip Advisor is very well deserved. The air conditioned space is a very welcome reprieve from the heat of Huatulco. From the décor to the service and the food, this place is first class all the way. We enjoyed a gigantic frozen Margarita before dinner that was one of the best I have had... More

Terra-Cotta is by far the BEST place to eat in Huatulco! When we were in the taxi coming in from the airport we asked our driver where the best place to eat was and he told us Terra-Cotta...which thrilled us because it was next to our hotel Mision de los Arcos. We ate in many different restaurants all over the... More

SO many options for breakfast (which went on till 1pm), lunch and dinner! Great range of options, imcluding excellent Mexican cuisine. Unfortunately I was ill with stomach problems before arriving so my options were limited but the staff were very helpful in suggesting and altering for my needs e.g. salad without bacon, grilling my chicken instead of breaded options.

This restaurant was busy both times we went there to have a meal. The food was fresh and served hot. It was amazing meals that we had. The coffee was so good. The best we had in Huatulco. The service was fantastic and it was not expensive for what you were served. We will go back again.

This restaurant is attached to Mision de los Arcos, a boutique hotel right off the square. The few outdoor tables are really nice when it's not too hot, the the air conditioned inside is a welcome relief. Food is terrific - the breakfast menu offers many healthy choices as well as splurges, and the lunch/dinner menu features not only Mexican... More

I visited this place with a group of 8 three times in three days, twice for breakfast and once for dinner. Excellent service, atmosphere and fantastic food. Very reasonable prices as well. Everyone in our group loved their food. Will definitely return next time I'm in Huatulco.

We were here the week of Jan 18th for a 7 pm dinner. We were informed by the waitress our first 2 choice, both seafood, were not available so we settled on a pizza. We ordered marguarita's and received beer. Took almost an hour to get our pizza so we would rate this dining experience average at best.

We were wandering around La Crucecita one late afternoon, sort of looking for a restaurant. MY BF spotted Terra Cotta (which looked much more appealing than the alternatives) so we went for it. The place was calm, cool, laid-back. We ordered coffee looked over the menu. and decided on chicken consomme (him) and a mixed green salad with roasted chicken... More
