Good service and the food was good, known for the chicken soup and Posole. The place is small and open air so it was rather warm. I didn't like the the street venders bothering me while I atr.

We loved it. Basic, but real Mexico, perhaps real Mexico for tourists but seemed pretty authentic. We had very good tacos. The chicken soup was good, but I couldn't quite see what all the fuss is about.

The chicken soup they serve is very tasty. They certainly didn't skimp on the chicken. We tried the enfrijoladas and they were pretty standard, good quality, but nothing outstanding. Overall a comfortable little place, with low prices and pretty good, local foods.

I've heard the entire menu at this small local restaurant is fantastic but we just can't seem to get past the chicken soup! There's nothing like sweating in Mexico, eating hot soup and sipping a cold Victoria! Was it 2 or 3 visits this time? Can't recall but either way its never enough! Missed seeing grandpa this time! Hope all... More

On the corner of a laid back street. Open air, sitting on benches with sort of picnic tables or a long wooden eating bar facing the street. Although we went to a lot of good restaurants in the Huatulco area, this is the only one we went to twice. Great home-made food! Tostadoes and other foods that I can't spell... More

Just a couple blocks off the square. The food is authentic. Soups are to die for, with tones of flavour. This is where the locals eat, and you can see why. Great food, for a reasonable price.

Although you may think it is a little hot for having soup, you must try it - the chicken soup and the pazole are both excellent. We have also tried many of the Mexican items - they make a great mole. The service is fast and friendly all at a very low price.

This has to be one of the better places in Huatulco. We ate here a couple of times and loved it each time. The Tlayudas (basically a steak and cheese sandwich) were great and a bargain at 40 pesos. The mole negro was also excellent. We liked the Caldo (Chicken soup) as well. You can also get salad for 50... More

This is the soup I've been looking for as we have traveled through Mexico for the past two weeks and I finally found it! Delicious chicken soup with vegetables and cilantro. The enchiladas were fresh and the doblado (like a quesadilla) with potato and chorizo was a good app. Lots of sauces were provided. The waiter even gave us a... More
