We've been travelling to Huatulco for 10 years. Our first and last meals are always at Los Potales. Good food, good pricing, sit back and watch the world go by. As always, great job Felix.

Los Portales is always our central meeting place if we come into La Crucesita to shop or look around. It is great place to have a beer or a snack, people watch, or catch up on the local happenings.

My husband an I were out strolling around the Town Square one night, and what caught our attention were the wonderful smells coming out of there.

LOS PORTALES is on the promenade, overlooking the plaza. The place has a very casual feel, most of the tables are outside, set up on the sidewalk in front of the open kitchen, which is very clean. While dining at night you can listen to the very pleasant and cheerful live MARIMBA BAND.

The waiter greeted us with COMPLIMENTARY warm chips and four kinds of salsa, (the pickled onions and chiles were wonderful, but very hot.) With our appetizer I had a mixed drink made with MEZCAL, a smokey tequila from the Region of Oaxaxa. My husband had the MEZCAL by itself. Mezcal has always been my dad's favorite, and so is mine!! Try it, you will love it!!

For dinner I had the Alambre. The Alambre there is like fajitas, or more like stir-fry. You have a choice of many combinations of diferent meats and vegetables, with or without cheese. They are definitely more meat than vegetables (one vegetarian combination is offered,) and come served with tortillas. This is truly a MUST TRY!! My husband had the Tacos de Bistec - four tortillas topped with steak, onions and cilantro, and served with guacamole and refried beans. Everything was quite good!!

I very highly recommend this place. The food, service and location are all excellent.

LOS PORTALES is open from 7 am until 2 am, and seems to be most busy from
around 8 pm until 11 pm or so.

The place must be doing something right, it has been there for over 25 years; almost as long as the resort has existed.
