Excellent food, service and price, the Terra Mar specialty steak & shrimp is delicious and the carrot cake is to die for! Our waiter Polo was superb!

Visited here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each had a great selection of food. It was weird that they serve breakfast only until 1 pm. Having A/C was nice, most places are open air seating area. Menu has American, Italian, and Mexican food. Everything we tried was great.

I took my friends to this restaurant because I had read all the great reviews. True, it is a very nice restaurant and the food was good, but the service was lacking. We all ordered and they brought all the food at the same time... except for mine. After sitting there a while with nothing infront of me, we were... More

We are very sorry about your recent dining experience with us. We use a restaurant software program in our establishment that sends our waiter’s food orders directly to the kitchen. This program helps to keep waiters in their specific area in order to provide better service to the clients. I am afraid that in your situation though, this technology backfired... More

Not as good as we thought... Mexicans love their cuisine, but to be honest there are many many others that are much much better, introducing mexican influence in Italian dishes is a very bad idea.....

We are assuming that you referring to our pasta in a creamy chipotle-tequila sauce. It is a top-selling dish for our local clientele but we understand that for Canadians, this dish might be a bit too spicy for your palate. Please know that upon request, we can always decrease the amount of chili we normally put in our dishes because... More

We have eaten at Terra Cotta for years, especially for breakfast. I have recently had to have a special diet, and Sherry, Sam, their chefs and wait staff have been incredibly accommodating in order to meet my dietary needs! I can't thank them enough.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a hotel about a block away from this restaurant. On our last day, we had breakfast here. It was delicious! He had standard fried eggs and toast which were fine (I ate his bacon - it was super crispy, the way I like it) and I ordered their French toast. It is stuffed with... More

We came to Terra-Cotta while on the City Tour with Huatulco Tours Enrique. It was my 50th Birthday and we wanted to have a nice dinner off of the resort with Enrique after our afternoon of touring with him. This is where he brought us. The restaurant was very pretty inside and the atmosphere was calm and welcoming. We got... More

We stopped in for breakfast. Very clean facility. attentive staff, and beautifully presented food. Inside seating and three tables outside. The street scene was subdued as we were there on Sunday morning. Near the town center and the markets. We didn't stay in the hotel but if the restaurant is any indication we will consider the hotel next time. Will... More
