Service was poor. Three out of four people received the wrong order (and yes, we ordered in Spanish). My Arecharra was ok. The other three people ordered steaks which came with two qualities rarely found together in beef: tough AND flavourless. Everyone's side orders were wrong and the wine never did show up even though we asked three times. This... More

Over the years since 1999, we have eaten many times at La Torre. We have always enjoyed the good meals and the warm hospitality. The chili rellenos are always really tasty. The owners, Martha and Nacho, are planning to close the restaurant in late April. If you have an opportunity to eat at La Torre, do it while you can... More

We absolutely loved La Torre in the Rinconada neighbourhood of Puerto Escondido. The food was always delicious, service was excellent and the prices were fantastic! The staff were very friendly and helpful - they even gave us bug repellant one night when they noticed us scratching our legs :) Our only complaint: they are only open Thursday through Sunday -...

Food here is excellent. The steaks are tender and delicious. Good comfortable ambience and helpful friendly owners. The service was pretty slow - even by Mexican holiday standards. Hopefully just an off night as everything else about the dinner was really good.

The steak was great and the service was too. It was a quiet place and it was good for a family with young kids that wanted to eat fancy but be relaxed

This little gem has been our favourite since it opened years ago. Martha is a wonderful Oaxacan chef, offering a wide assortment of choices on her menu, something for everyone. Nacho is in charge of the ribs on special Friday evenings. The ambiance is spotless, and cozy. The Marguerita de Tamarindo made for you by the talented Tomas, is a... More

I ordered medium, & my wife , her uncle & her cousin each ordered medium well. Probably the 1st time everyone at our table got what they ordered, & were totally happy. Will go back soon to try other reviewers suggestions D&A from Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba

Owner and waiter were unfriendly from the beginning. We all ordered steaks, 270 pesos each (quiet some money for Oaxaca). Only one of 5 steaks was ordered well done. All the others were ordered medium or medium rare. The only one that we got medium was the one that was ordered well done. All the others were well done. The... More

I am a chef in Canada and When I'm in Puerto I visit this little gem once a week without fail. All the dishes Martha makes are consistently a masterpiece. If you haven't had her Thai chicken you haven't lived yet.
