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.

We had heard such good things so we were excited about getting away from tacos for an evening and having something French. Upon arrival, there was only one other table occupied. We were kindly offered a very nice table at the back window and settled in to read the menu which looked very interesting. we ordered a goat cheese salad... More

I wanted a small light dinner. I was not dissappointed. The Chef's son & Sous Chef were in controll. 2 glasses of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, traditional French Terrine of Duck with Cognac and a half order of Fussil with 4 fresh vegetables and queso de parmessean. All for under $20.00 with tip.

We walked all the way from Tangolunda to get our 10,000 steps (thanks FitBit) and we thought we knew where this place would be, but it was hidden away. After some help from some friendly locals, we found it, and sat down and enjoyed the cool shade and cold beer. Our lunch was perfect, and we were revived...although we did... More
