Love this place. The lobster and shrimp is amazing and serving sizes are very generous. The people are all so nice.

Wandered for beers, finished with the seafood (lobster and shrimp) and rib eye combo. One of the best meals I've had period! Great atmosphere, charcoal grill and Caesar salad made from scratch. The beer was very cold. Staff were excellent, kind and accommodating. We stayed at Dreams, and visited Don Porfirio twice during this stay. Cannot say enough!!!

It`s a nice open restaurant with very good and fresh fish dishes. They bring it out to you to pick it. The busy hotel area street is crossing in front and so its always a little bit noisy by traffic.

Nice restaurant, food taste is great, service is great. Not really a good place for conversation, there is a lot of noise all the time and music is a bit high volume, but when mariachis comes nobody will hear you even screaming.

We ended up going here for a quick beer but decided to try some food. Am I glad we did! Had the mushroom and cheese quesadillas and they were fantastic. We wanted to go back again as we heard the steak is fabulous too but didn't get a chance to. We would go here again.

they put on a show for supper. You order fresh seafood that is brought out to you to pick. Food is really good. Close to the hotel area. Eating out on the deck and there was always music and entertainment going on. Would go back. Food was good.

We stayed at the Barcelo which is right across the street from this restaurant. A couple we met at the pool bar had eaten here the night before and recommended it but with some tips. Yes it is a bit pricey for Mexico standards for sure but if you split your meals then it is very affordable. They have a... More

Food was okay but there are many other restaurants that are much better. Way too expensive in our opinion.

Our first night in Huatulco, staying at Zaashilla Camino Real, and decided to stretch our legs and get some seafood and margaritas after a few quick InterJet flights from Oaxaca. It was a Monday night, so sort of quiet, but large portions, attentive staff and, according to my pescatarian father, the best grilled salmon (aside from his own) he is... More
