I am about as picky as one can get about eating out. For all my dining experiences in Huatulco, Juanita's is top notch. The servers are always prompt, courteous and helpful with my language challenges. The food is always way more than I need or expect, and is cooked to perfection. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of... More

Highly recommend for a post swim lunch.( We walked from Santa Cruz beach to the marina- look for the bright blue chairs) Oh... More

We had breakfast here both mornings we were in Huatulco, even this morning! I loved this place so much that I felt compelled to write as soon as we returned home this evening. The food was terrific but the ambiance...quiet and overlooking the harbour is what made this place stand out. We arrived this morning at 8 am but it... More

My better half and I stopped into Cafe Juanita for breakfast one morning with low expectations (generally a good move when dining abroad, or anywhere for that matter), and were immediately... More

This is a mostly-outdoors small restaurant on the bank of a marina. Wonderful views and breezes any time of day. Have been there many times for lunch and dinner. At lunch, every salad is so fresh and tasty-- it is hard to choose which one to have. The sandwiches are also imaginative, and at lunch on Friday there is a... More
