It’s a beautiful restaurant serving breakfast lunch and supper. Very good service. Their breakfast specialty is French toast. It’s cream filled, with either cocucunt or orange, fluffy...the highlight of our time in la Crucicita!

The white wine was room temperature, the main course (grilled fish) rather tasteless but the AC was blasting so that made it worth the visit.

We ate many meals here and didn’t have a single bad dish. Great authentic cuisine and local favorites. Highly recommended, breakfasts especially.

Had dinner and breakfast here and you can’t go wrong. Friendly service, expansive menu at fair prices. Terra-Cotta is professionally run and staffed with people that care. While everything was very good, the stuffed French Toast was the star. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed everything. My wife had a shrimp dish and I had mahi. Both delicious and cooked to perfection. Our waiter sang the mexican "happy birthday" and others around joined in! We had a great time.

During our stay in Santa Cruz we ate twice at Terra Cotta. Both times the food was great, the service was good and really friendly. The restaurant is pleasantly spacious and nicely decorated. Excellent value for money.
