If you are looking for a fine dining experience with North American standards of cleanliness, service and menu variety, this is the place in Huatulco to go. Excellent selection of appies, salads, pastas, seafood and meats. Also good selection of cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. Also,...it’s air conditioned which can be a welcomed treat when the heat and humidity get too much.More

Super evening and meal at Terra Cotta-from AC, beautiful table linens and great service, to delicious Oaxacan cuisine.

We were not asked for our drink orders until.25 minutes after we had sat down. And our appetizers came a full hour after we had sat down. Other than that, the food was plentiful and tasty.

We have been visiting Huatulco for many years and Terra Cotta has always been a favourite of ours. Excellent food and drinks. We have noticed, however, that service has declined. It used to be service that was a cut above to give you that “fine...dining” experience. The waiters used to welcome us warmly, explain the menu, offer a wine list, tell us about dessert options, etc. We no longer experience this same level of service. Our last visit there - we sat for a long time before anyone acknowledged us. No wine list presented, very little interaction with the server, we had to ask for cutlery, we were not offered another drink or dessert options. While we are not fussy people and typically just go with whatever the service is, Terra Cotta was special largely because of the service we used to get. A bit disappointed that they have lost this special touch although food still great.More

A popular restaurant located on the ground floor of the Hotel Misión de los Arcos. The indoor dining room is air conditioned but there are a few outdoor tables where I usually had breakfast. The menu is extensive and the food is good. (I did...not try lunch or dinner at this restaurant.)More

Even in low season, Terra Cotta is not easy to get in, without a reservation, for a ggod reason. Imdoor, Outdoor setting is very pleasant, just off the “centro” square. The extensive menue has excellent choices. Appertizers and main course were outstanding. Fresh seafood beautiful...combinations and excellent service.More

Dropped by after an early walk from Playa Santa cruz ..decided to try their famous french toast version…as soon as I got in ..impressed with the cozy atmosphere, clean place with white tablecloth on each table. Waitress was very cordial and friendly. True enough, french...toast was very filling (ordered one slice) serving was huge for a slice. Toast had a custard like filling as I sliced it and was totally delicious. Proce was reasonable.More
