Great service. Good food

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... read 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

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

I always eat at Terra-Cotta when I'm in town. This is by far the best restaurant in the entire Huatulco area! Still love the French toast! It's a delight to feast here! And feast is the correct word. The menu is huge. What a variety and everything is delicious. I've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Highly... More
