Super nice restaurant with excellent food at very reasonable prices. It is under a small, but beautiful hotel right off the zocolo.

A lovely restaurant with limited outside space. We ate here twice and the food was excellent and well presented on both occasions. Clearly fish was a speciality. Very resonably priced and the service very good.

We ate here on our last night. I have always resisted coming here because of the air conditioning and indoor dining, figure I can get that at home. Now that they have gotten rid of the ice cream shop and have several tables outside, we decided to give them a try, and we weren't disappointed. My hubby had the margarita... More

We really appreciated the air conditioned dining for a change! My husband had a delicious shrimp dish and I had Enchiladas Suiza's with red sauce. They were good but in hindsight I wish I would have had green sauce. Great food!

We visited this restaurant 3 or 4 times during our 2 week stay in Huatulco!! Lovely atmosphere, air conditioned, very professional staff, and fabulous food!! The stuffed french toast is undescribeable, you have to try it!!! We ate breakfast here 3 times, and chose to go again for our last dinner in Huatulco and were not disappointed!! A great way...

We left Dreams for a night out. My son really liked the fish tacos and the steak with mole was also very good. My husband loved the flan. We also got a bottle of wine, which we really enjoyed. Would highly recommend.
