Quality will exceed your expectations for a small town.

Wonderful flavours and beautiful presentation
We only ate breakfast there but were always impressed.

La Cruz is a very small town but this restaurant is first class. The atmosphere, décor and food are amazing! 5 star dining in rural Mexico. Julio the chef and his staff attend to every need. The prices are very good and they have live music one night a week (usually Wednesday) which is worth going to. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Just had dinner at Masala it was absolutely delicious. One of the best meals I've ever had. Not only is the food great the presentation is like any five + star restaurant. There were 3 of us for dinner and all of our meals were equally as good. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

Thank frebre

As our good friends were leaving La Cruz in a day or so to return north for the summer months, what better place to go for dinner than Masala. We were greeted by owner/partner Julio and shown to a perfect table although they were quite busy for mid-week.
Three of us had the suggested "Fish of the Day", while my wife decided on the Cornish Game Hen. All were magnificent to the pallete and the presentations by Chef Rita were absolutely amazing (as always), when you dine at Masala.
A nice bottle of wine (suggested by Julio) paired perfectly with the dinner, followed by decadent dessert and the evening was perfect.
Although not the easiest place to find (Calle Coral) ... try really hard, because this place is worth it for a really nice evening out.
If TripAdvisor offered a "sixth star" ... Masala would certainly rate it.
Congratulations Rita, Julio and the staff at Masala ... you have the best dining experience in La Cruz.
