Just excellent food

Had a wonderful lunch here. One of the best fish dishes ever. A Mahi Mahi with Pablano sauce. The sauce was so rich and smooth it seemed like a hollandaise, but no eggs. Talked with the owner and chef, got the recipe. Everything else was great. Will be back next year. Service was ok in restaurant... read more

I stayed for a week at Mision de los Arcos, and ate at least twice each day at Terra-Cotta. The breakfasts are not only delicious, but beautiful - I especially liked the FRESH fruit, which I enjoyed with yogurt, honey and granola. The banana bread was moist and flavorful, and there were several choices of egg dishes from which to... More

Best restaurant in HuaTulco area. Great! They have fabulous cakes, like carrot cake, Belgian chocolate, coconut, and they are homemade. Everything there tasted wonderful. Their salads are fantastic, especially try the Cobb salad, it is huge and will feed 2 people. It's loaded with bacon, tomatoes, avocados, cheese, eggs, grilled chicken, topped with homemade dressing. It is made with the... More

Terra-Cotta is the best for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have eaten here many many times, staying here for 2 weeks and never will I be tired of eating here. I love it every time! Fresh, organic, tasty fare and great selection considering freshness and quality!

This one of Hautulco best restaurants. The menu is varied with Mexican, American and Italian. Shari does a great job on decor and it is airconditioned a important item for some people. The quality of the food is top notch.

We had dinner here. The menu was interesting and the service was good.Very nice ambience - it's a white tablecloth restaurant in the heart of La Crucecita. As a Chardonnay enthusiast, I am consistently disappointed with the wine selections in Mexico - this place was no exception! Did not, however, negatively affect our experience (:

We loved everything about the restaurant---the food, the staff, the ambience, the cleanliness, the excellent lattes. Loved the variety for breakfast---the oatmeal with cranberries, the fruit salad with yogurt and granola, the scrambled eggs with bacon, etc. The lunch and dinner menus had a nice variety of mexican and international choices. We were crazy for the chicken fajitas and I... More
