Was my second time to Don Porfirio and was not disappointed. The food was great, especially the ceasar salad which I still crave everyday. The staff was very good and it is a great experience. It is on the pricier side though, probably the only disappointing thing about the restaurant. And they didn't give you any exchange rate if you paid in Canadian or American, which I found funny because a great deal of their business seemed to come from the local resorts. The meal for the 3 of us with one drink each, 3 salads and 2 entrees,which we split between us was $120 canadian plus tip.

Located along the hotel corridor, you can tell they're making an effort to "Americanize" this restaurant. However, it definitely still maintains a Mexican flare. Your dinner (steak, shrimp, ribs, chicken) is BBQ'd on a beautiful charcoal grill, out on the sidewalk in front of you. The portions are HUGE so bring your appetite.The staff was attentive and pleasant. Pricing was on the higher end. My sirloin cut steak was 250pesos, a ribeye was 300pesos. If you've got a craving for a good steak while in Huatulco, this place would be a good option.

Still the best steaks to be had anywhere. The staff are awesome, great service and entertaining. Grilling the food in front of you makes you feel like home. The smell makes your mouth water. This is a must visit place.

We were staying at the Dreams and Don Porfirio is just across the street. We were walking by and saw the largest prawns we had ever seen on their BBQ. We could not resist so we decided to give them a try. 2 of us had the prawns and 2 had the BBQ ribs. Everyone had a great meal and enjoyed it very much. The prawns were fresh and smothered in butter and garlic. The ribs were meaty and tender. We also had margaritas that were not only tasty but nice and big.
