Visited Rocoto on our last day in Huatulco. Everything was amazing! We tried several of their dishes (ceviche, empanadas, octopus and dorado fish). Extremely satisfied with every day! Can’t wait to be back. The service was also spectacular, Barbara was a great host.

Saved this for our last night; made reservations when we were walking by the night before. The food never disappoints! We ordered the steak with bacon and short ribs, margarita and wine. Dinner was superb, as usual. One of our favorites!

The best meal we had in Huatulco, this restaurant is in La Crucecita. Lots of seafood and vegetarian food. I had vegan Thai Curry de Mango - so good! Very reasonably priced, clean and bright, excellent service. Can’t wait to go back! Everything was top-notch...- drinks, salad, main course, dessert and cappuccino.More

Absolutely awesome! Quaint little restaurant in downtown Crucecita! The portions were big, and the flavours were outstanding. Service was excellent and all staff spoke English! A ‘must do’!

My wife and I had the privilege to have a reservation to Rocoto during our visit to Huatulco this past week. First, no reservation, no entry, so all Covid concerns were immediately addressed. The staff met us at the door, took our temperature and supplied...sanitizer. Again, Covid concerns addressed. The gentlemen who welcomed us was friendly and passionate about the dining experience. Our waiter, who also teaches English during the day, was friendly, fun and informative. The meal was absolutely fabulous and the portions are large so go hungry. Our white wine was perfectly chilled and the music lightly playing in the background made for a perfect, memorable evening. We told everyone at hour hotel and anyone who had been to Huatulco new of this wonderful place and we sent some new friends the next evening. Wonderful, Amazing Rocoto! Enjoy.More

We did not have reservations and these are recommended however we were seated around 7:45 then moved outdoors when a table opened up. The service is extremely friendly and the place is tidy and well run. Our group had Thai coconut curry soup, a couple...of gamberetta spaghettis and another dish I cannot remember. I give them full marks for running a good place during a pandemic. We will be back the next time we are here.More

This restaurant is very charming and it seems well known by the tourist and snowbirds that go there. My companions said there meals were absolutely terrific. Unfortunately mine was tough. Could not believe they comped my meal. Never get this in Canada. I was stunned...and very grateful.More

My wife and I went for dinner last night at Rocoto’s new location in Crucesita. The food and service was, as usual, impeccable. The coconut shrimp soup was just as delicious as I remember from 2 years ago. My wife started with the burata tomato...salad and finished with the tuna poke appetizer. Whenever I am in Huatulco, it is had to resist mahi mahi and I was not disappointed with Claudia’s presentation. For dessert we split the sticky coconut rice. A fabulous meal, with friendly service. Highly recommended.More

We enjoyed our meal and the service was very good. Was it a five-star meal, likely not. Definitely four stars. Two meals the rice was cold. That said. The servers were great and the appies were good. Overall worth going to you but don’t expect...five star.More

Everyone knows the food noise song. It’s that humming sound that spontaneously comes out of you when your taste buds are so happy your body just has to sing about it. I am happy to say I sang that song last nite at Rocoto. Claudia,...owner/chef, served delicious Mahi Mahi over the most exquisite spinach ravioli and accompanying sauce I have ever tasted. I even woke up to that food memory it was so gosh darn good. What is important to note is I am not normally a pasta eater (too much dough for me) but in this dish Chef Claudia made a single 4” round exquisitely proportioned ravioli ‘paddy’ stuffed with spinach. The ravioli was complimented by the best sauce I have ever tasted! As if that was not enough, nestled on top of the pasta was a perfectly cooked Mahi Mahi steak! I am pretty sure I am going to be asking, no make that begging, Claudia to offer this amazing dish again and again and again!More
