It's an high class restaurant, you can notice it since the moment you're coming in. The waiters are very kind and patient, the food is fresh and delicious, the prices aren't high. I ate pasta w/vegetables, primavera salad (very recommended) and drank margarita and payed less than 200 peso. I enjoyed every minute, you can't miss it if you're in... More

I'm looking forward to trying all the new dishes. Based... More

One year we stayed at Mision de Los Arcos and the Terra cotta was the best discovery ever! After long morning walks we really looked forward to the clean, air conditioned and very friendly atmosphere of the Terra Cotta. Wonderful coffee and amazing breakfasts, we always left happy and full! Even last year, when we ended up at an all... More

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
