Came here for dinner. Nice place overlooking the marina. I ordered the coconut shrimp, hubby had the chipotle chicken with blue cheese. Both were delicious! We also had the blackberry frozen yogurt which was homemade. Everything was great! Jane also called us a taxi when...we were done.More

Right on Chahue Marina, Cafe Juanita has a great view of the marina and all the boats make an interesting back drop to your dining experience. We started with a shared appetiser of crab cakes which were the best I've ever tasted. My daughter had...the filet mignon and I chose the catch of the day for our main course. The fish was grilled beautifully and seasoned to taste. We traded bites and I was delighted to find the meat was cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth tenderness. Great meal, good service!!More

Dined on shrimp tacos that come without the head and a rice bowl. Very fresh and delicious. Not open all days best to call and make a reservation. The owner also offers cooking lessons if interested while in Huatulco

Having spent a morning, earlier in the week, cooking with the owner, Jane, we couldn't wait to try her restaurant on the marina. It was a sensational taste treat! We started with ceviche, a very generous portion of fish with grapefruit and avocado - a...really fresh combination. My main was a chicken breast served with a chipotle sauce and topped with roquefort cheese - as the cheese melted, it created a wonderful creamy, spicy taste. My husband's fresh fish in a red Thai curry sauce was equally delicious. And, we enjoyed an excellent slice of deep, dark Oaxacan chocolate cake for dessert....a true taste memory! One of the best meals of our trip!More

We came for the weds to sunday 4 to 5 pm 2x1 happy hour excellent margaritas and Rum punch ! I believe Jane the owner who is from Canada was in attendance that day ! extremely nice to talk with and knows the area well.... nice spot in the Marina Chahue . few tables dockside provides scenery and views . great to sit and relax we stayed for dinner as Jane had some fresh Mahi Mahi it was delicious ! others had Shrimp tacos excellent also . Its an easy safe walk from Santa Cruz area Cabs are plentiful Jane will also call for you if there was one small compliant is that they allow smoking table side !! unfortunately we had a Chimney smoking close bye which marred an otherwise perfect dinner ! we did make a second visit for the fish taco fridays 12 to 4 pm !! not to be missed !! excellent and reasonable dont miss out on this !! $125 pesos for 3 tacos and a beer ! perfect that friday and no Chimneys present !!!More
