Eating off of the resort

We are staying at the Barcelo for a week starting on the 29th of November. Are there any good restaurants within walking distance of the resort.

Cafe Vienna (right across the street from the Barcelo) is an excellent choice.

I would suggest checking the restaurant listings on this TA site, and then hopping a taxi into La Crucesita or Santa Cruz. There are many great restaurants with varied menus, especially for seafood and Oaxacan cuisine.

Highly recommend getting away from resort area to poke around....it is very safe and interesting.

That being said the above recommendations are good.

Cabs are cheap and plentiful. Many restaurants in both La Crucecita and Santa Crucecita are absolutely wonderful. Right across the street from your hotel (upstairs) you'll find Vienna, a great restaurant. Get off the resort and explore. You'll find Huatulco safe and welcoming.

Make your way into the town square and go to la crema. It's a pizza place with a huge stone pizza oven. Go early tho it opens around 7 and it's usually a wait if you show up too late. There are also a couple restaurants across the street, more so in front of dreams.

In La Crucecita, on Calle Carrizal you'll find Grillo Marinaro, the freshest, most authentic Mexican seafood restaurant you'll find. Its run by a family that has lived here before Huatulco was a tourist destination. Visit La Finca de Vaqueros, an authentic Mexican barbecue... you'll probably get serenaded, and undoubtedly receive some wonderful free mezcal as well as a fantastic meal. Stop in at Alfredo's.... Its full of ex-pats, live music, good food & drink and a lot of fun... Go with Hurricane Divers on one of their world famous "Excursion" where you will see the bays, snorkel with a guide, see some sealife and enjoy an incredible gourmet picnic on a deserted beach under shade... or enjoy an Italian dinner at Giordanas. Italian food so good you'll want to return the next night. Most of all, get off the resort and come out & play !!

Right across the street is Portifino's. The BEST Mexican seafood I've ever had. Very reasonable and actually had to share the platter. It was delicious. going again in March.

Don Porfirios is right across the street. One of my favorites over the years. But spend some time in town- taxis are cheap and plentiful.

Viena is superb. It should be open by the time you are here. It's only open in the high season. Mercader in Santa Cruz is excellent. If Giordana's is busy, her brother runs a place right next door and it's just as good. Los Parados (La Crucecita) for the best tacos in town. Don't forget the many food stands on the street that have incredible authentic Oaxacan meals cooked right before you. Wander and discover Huatulco!
