The service was quite good although they will not do separate bills for two couples which seems a bit much - pretend we are at two separate tables! Food was expensive by local standards I personally didn’t enjoy what I ordered which was one of...the specials of the day. The other 3 were happy, so you could say hit or miss. Cash only which they did confirm with the reservation.More

This was my second visit in two years. The food is exceptional and the service is very good. With the others I have eaten here with we have tried almost everything on their menu. All the selections were interesting, tasty and well prepared. Make sure...you eat here during your Huatulco visit.More

We had dined at the previous location in 2020. First time back since covid. We did not like the new location. The old location was fun and busy. Does not feel like a good area of town. Our food was good and the waiter was...friendly. We won't go back due to area. Prices were fine but menu had changed and our favourite pork dinner was no longer available.More

Inwould give this lovely restaurant a five star plus, had we managed to get a table on the patio. Super busy, even with a reservation we had to accept a semi indoor table. The problem for us, indoor when busy as it was is so...noisy ittmost impossible to have a conversation at your own table. Apart from that, the service was impeccable as was the food, especially the ceviche. To really enjoy this try to get an outdoor patio table reserved for your dinner.More

Definitely a good evening here, really liked the food and menu choices, the atmosphere was great as well, with live music that wasn't too loud and intrusive. Starter and main were excellent, dessert I wouldn't repeat, a bit ordinary.

Rocoto turned our ordinary night into a magical experience. The Mango Thai Curry s was the perfect start, fresh and bursting with flavor. Then came the Short Ribs with basil mash potatoes - so tender and delicious. Chef Claudia outdid herself with the divine ceviche,...a blend of flavors that was simply heavenly. The atmosphere was as welcoming as the food, with Israel’s service making us feel like VIPs. Ending our meal with the exquisite churros was the cherry on top of a perfect evening."More

I had heard so much about their short ribs and turf. The turf part was one small shrimp. I wasn’t expecting lobster but they could have at the least given you a couple. The shrimp was good. But the short rib which I came for...was not fall off the bone like it should be. It is pretty hard to screw up short ribs. It was tough and tasted like pot roast. The apitizer taco was very good. So I will give them a second chance seeing they get so many good reviews.More

She apparently only treats you like family if you compliment the food not if you give you honest feedback. I was so shocked by her comments and overall attitude she was like a bear that had just been woken up after hibernation, the fish was...very, very salty as if it had been preserved in salt, which is the only reason why I mentioned it. I was so embarrassed by her response that I decided to order more food desert, ceviche, etc. Nothing was going to change her mood towards me, which was awful as I was by myself. To top everything off when the bill came they told me the waitress had told me to begin with that they only take cash payments but, I didn't get that at all not from the telephone call when booking or when I arrived at the restaurant. My initial response was no I wasn't told. The chef had all the faces to pull and said her mother said if she doesn't have anything positive to say she shouldn't say anything. I was in shock, wait what? I didn't have any issue about paying in cash I just really didn't know. Anyway, terrible experience which was such a shame, and very upsetting.More

Another best place in Huatulco to get its steak and fish! A fusion restaurant that know how to mix and match many different cultures of food. Coming from Alberta, Canada that is known for its beef and relocated to Huatulco, Mexico, I do surely miss...a good piece of steak. Claudia who is the person behind the creation of a list of brilliant menu. You can see through her creation, her love of foods and her customers. I’ll definitely be back whenever I miss my good steak!More

Reservations only but we’ll worth it. Located on a small side street this small but quaint restaurant offers amazing flavours and service. Claudia the chef, is so fun and personable and regularly visits tables to explain the menu and even clears tables. Her partner Barbara...is hilarious and engaging. The food… the best we have eaten in Hualtco!More

We had dinner here our last night in Huatulco. I'm not sure why we waited because it was excellent. Restaurant is clean and colorful. Staff is great. Hostess, Claudia is a real gem! She leaves nothing to guesswork when explaining the specials. And she's a...great comedian too. We had the filet special and the short ribs. Both were great. Ribs are fall off the bone tender and juicy. Everything is full of flavor. I saved room for two flavors of ice cream with sauce and cookie crumble. Just right. You will need reservations and they only take cash. We will visit more often next year.More
