During our time in Huatulco we went twice. The first time my husband and I were really surprised about the tasty food we got. At that time, he ordered his favorite which is Spaghetti Carbonara and he loved it! He was so excited about this restaurant that he decided to invite our friends, three couples, and of course he ordered... More

A must visit restaurant when in Huatulco. Food is tasty with a great presentation and excellent service. Sit and chat with Terry (owner) and see where the locals go for a special night out.

The food and the drinks were perfect. The service was just as great I'm planning on going as soon as possible. If you like sweets I recommend you try some of the desserts.. They were all amazing!!

We stayed at Villa Blanca in April. L'Echalote is just around the corner so after a long day of traveling we popped in. We're glad we did! I had the fish with leeks; my wife had the shrimp and pasta. The sauces are amazing! The service was attentive and friendly. We'd definitely return.

We enjoyed eating here during our time in Huatulco. It was a nice change from the food in our hotel. The restaurant serves "French" food but with local ingredients. We had the fish of the day, which was grouper, and could be prepared in several different ways according to your preferences. The fish was absolutely delicious and very fresh. Nice... More

Looks fancy without the fancy prices. The flank steak was the best I've ever had anywhere tender and cooked to perfection. My girlfriend had the tenderloin medallions and they were also delicious. Very good prices with a friendly staff.

Recommend the profiteroles for dessert! and my dad loved the ensalada de higaditos de pollo, If you like chicken liver haha, also the tuna was very good, the huachinango was amazing. Great place, bring mosquito repellent, they got lots of plants, part of the charm!

The outdoor area of this restaurant is peaceful and relaxing. Service was very good and friendly. The menu options are varied with a lot of different fusions, making for a very interesting selection. Each meal is individually prepared so you have to wait a bit for your meal but it is well worth it as our meals were very good.... More

We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. While the fresh, grilled snapper was excellent, the service was just okay, and the terrace seating, uncomfortable.
