We ate here three times during our recent trip to Huatulco. The first night we went because we were too exhausted to explore and this restaurant got the highest Tripadvisor reviews. The second time we went because one of our kids really liked the desserts. The third time we went because one of our kids had really bad mosquito bites... More

When we went there the first time the place was full and we were greeted by the owner Sam. He regaled us with stories of Huatulco in it's early years and entertained us until there was room for us. Sam speaks perfect English and truly made us feel at home. The French toast were amazing and actually made us go... More

I really liked this restaurant - it was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and good air conditioning. Like everything in Huatulco, it's very reasonably priced for tourists from US and Canada. We came here 3 times bc it was the only place where my sister wouldn't get mosquito bites. I think if you want really authentic Mexican food, there are better... More

Terra Cotta is our "go to" eatery in Huatulco. The staff are amazing. The food is second to none and they make the best Cobb salad and my personal favourite, the Fajitas. They are wonderful with substituting things and always remembered my wheat allergy and made sure I got the corn tortillas instead of the wheat ones. Food is fresh,... More

Having beakfast at Terra-Cotta is a culinary experience. You find chilaquiles, enchiladas, salsa de queso, and all the typical Oaxacan menu along with your regular American breakfast with one delicious addition: Pan Francés. It's a sort of French toast, but filled with some soft, creamy cheese, lightly fried and covered with some also light syrup, powdered sugar and cinammon, and... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. Our friends had found it on trip advisor. Extremely nice, excellent food and reasonable prices. I had enchiladas suize which is apparently a typical Mexican (as opposed to TexMex) dish.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The service was great and the food was really good. The portions are quite big so it would be easy to share a meal.
