Located in the core of the Santa Cruz square you will find Terraza, a small restaurant with big flavor. Typically, when you go to restaurants that are situated directly on the beach you can expect to pay an additional $10 dollars a head, based on location alone. Thankfully, this Huatulco restaurant is stationed a short walk from the beach, meaning you get to enjoy amazing food, at a more affordable price.
Chef Olivier is well known in Huatulco, having previously held the position of head chef at Huatulco’s La Boheme restaurant. Restaurants in Huatulco have to carefully balance the needs of locals as well as tourists. Terraza does an excellent job of satisfying both parties which, lucky for you, means it will be around for a while.
Terraza offers a ‘fresh catch’ seafood menu with quality that doesn’t go unnoticed. Their ever-changing menu makes it difficult to recommend any one dish in particular, however, both the seafood and high quality steak makes this an excellent dining choice. When you visit, the menu for the day is available in both English and Spanish, which removes the guess-work for those still trying to perfect their Spanish.
This charming restaurant offers 4-6 tables, so reservations are recommended for dinner. (The hostess speaks English, which may help with booking.) The simple, but elegant decor makes Terraza extremely well received. Furthermore, they have modern bathrooms, which is always a plus.
One of the more interesting aspects of Terraza is it’s open air concept, including an open kitchen, really adding to the atmosphere while dinning at this Huatulco Restaurant.
