We just returned from our trip to Huatulco and had dinner at Terra-Cotta. Being one of the top reviewed restaurants on Trip Advisor for La Crucecita, I thought we had a guaranteed great meal. Service was good, atmosphere was so-so but construction was going on...More

I apologize about the construction. We were finishing our new bathrooms and tried to only work during the slow hours. Because we are open daily from 8:00 to midnight, it is hard when we have to do maintenance or any type of remodelling work. We...More

I am sorry that our waitress ruined your otherwise lovely meal. I do believe I know which waitress you are referring to. She is a wonderful person with a lot of experience, but she is going through a very difficult personal matter in her life...More

If you are in Huatulco don't miss dining at this restaurant! The coconut shrimp and Tortilla soup were amazing. Best Tortilla soup I've ever had and my teenage sons agreed. Our entrees didn't actually compare to the appetizers so next time we would just stick...More
