Amazing !!

We spent several hours at La Huella and it was all good. Started with a mimosa which was delicious and then had their fish of the day which was White Sea Bass. Large fish which was cooked perfectly and very tasty with garlic mashed potatoes. Finished off with Volcano of Chocolate. Busy spot but... read more

After a disastrous attempt to have lunch at La Huella on 1 January, I decided to to return and to take my sister with family. A risky decision. I made reservations for 13:30 and got there on time. After being announced by the receptionist, one hostess came to greet me and take me to the table. for my surprise, she... More

La Huella is extremely popular. It is on the beach, has a marvelous ambience, and incredibly delicious food, fresh, and very well prepared. Be sure to reserve in advance because La Huella is always fully booked. One of the best dining experiences imaginable!

Absolutely worth the cab ride to Jose Ignacio. Food was incredible, even for foodies from New York City, like us. The salmon crudo was divine, grilled whole fish special was amazing, and the dulce de leche dessert was out of this world. Bar was alive with great music and energy, plus a great looking crowd. Excellent cocktails, well priced wine... More

Nice service, good food and drinks. Great place to relax, sipping some alcohol and enjoying the full view of Jose Ignacio. No problem bringing a small kid.

The perfect spot, just next to the beach! We had yummy cocktails and stayed for supper. Delicious BBQ’d fish of the day. But the best thing about supper was the Dulche du Leche Volcano pudding! It was soooo good!

I thought this restaurant was the most unique and atmospheric in Punta. The beach side setting was rustic but luxurious and I've never seen such a clear view of the stars. Huge range of fresh fish on offer. And the music amps up as the night goes on.
