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.

We stayed in the hotel that this restaurant was part of and wanted to go to other restaurants...but this one was so good, we couldn't stay away. The cream cheese toast in the morning...wow!! I'd recommend ordering a half order unless you're wanting to spend extra hours in the gym to work it off. The shakes and smoothies were incredible.... More

We discovered this restaurant half way through our vacation. we loved it and went back for either lunch or dinner each day. I loved the setting and atmosphere to relax and enjoy a meal. The food was beautifully presented, and delicious. The servers were great and professional. Wish I could go for dinner there today!

The french toast is to kill for! The bread is stuffed with cheese and covered with an orange liquor syrup. Large portion enough for two. All of the salads were unique and delicious. The smoothies were made with fresh fruit and they can do any combination. we ended up going there 3 times during our week.

We discovered Terra Cotta while searching for a great breakfast spot. Beautiful restaurant within a hotel in La Crucecita. First visit we ordered the Pan Frances, ensalada frutta, Cafe Oaxacan, fresh orange juice, and a Norteno breakfast plate. Everything was divine. We even purchased coffee beans to take home. We ended up loving the restaurant so much that we returned... More

We've eaten (breakfast, luncha and dinner) at Terra Cotta during each of our three visits to Huatulco and have enjoyed every meal. Food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Also, excellent margaritas and deserts. Prices were very reasonable.
