We went here upon recommendation from the taxi driver on our first night in Huatulco. We were looking for a quick dinner and a brief downtown visit, since we were all really tired from traveling. Unfortunately the service was incredibly slow, we waited nearly a half hour for drinks, then received one meal at a time. We ended up being... More

We were staying at Las Brisas al inclusive and went to town for dinner. The couple we shared are cab with we're going here and the cab driver recommended it. Excellent seafood. Great atmosphere. Good price. I had the shrimp 4x4 and enjoyed all four types. These are fresh head in shrimp so be prepared to work for your dinner... More

This is a great family owned restaurant just a view blocks from the Park Central in La Crucecita. David runs the place (it was opened by his grandmother) and he is a great host who didn't mind our crummy Spanish. He whipped us up the best margaritas we had ever had,and we just had an appetizer of guacamole with chips... More

Very good food for a very decent price. This was our first meal in huatulco, recommended by a guy on the street and it did not disappoint. Very nice, fresh food, that's not right in the middle of the square. They made an excellent white dip that was spicy and amazing, a nice alternative to the usual salsa.

We were on a shore excursion with NCL and the arrangement was to do a Mescal and Tequila tasting at this restaurant. We were there over an hour and tried about 3 Tequilas and 10 Mescals after a couple of Margaritas, one from each liquor. It was a wonderful time. They also provided nibbles to go with the drink and... More

This place was suggested by a local tour guide and after eating there it was well worth the peso's that we gave him as a tip for bringing us there. You can't go wrong with any of the choices that are available on their menu. If you are just stopping in from looking around the town while shopping and need... More

We only had Micheladas and they were amazing! The shrimp was as fresh as can be. The location is away from the town square.

We dined here with two other couples in January 2014 and had a great meal. There were 5 different selections of seafood on the menu and each was served with rice and a vegetable. The guacamole appetizer was huge and very tasty, especially with the freshly fried tortilla chips. For Huatulco, the dining room was really nice and very clean.... More
