Got the Chicken Fajitas and they came with chopped up fried bacon mixed in which I had no idea when ordering. Delicious! Cheap Eats

This is a nice place for breakfast. We had the 2 eggs with hashbrowns and bacon (75 pesos), and coffee (18 pesos). These prices are among the best available in Huatulco for the quantity/quality. The plate came with a side of refried beans, avocado, tomatoes, and tortilla.

Average Mexican food & drink place. Cheap, clean, convenient, open late. Right on the town square. Good to watch all the activity while eating.

The restaurant is located in the heart of la Crucecita. We ate fajitas, arrachera (flank steak)and tlayuda. The fajita and steak were delicious. The tlayuda was a bit dry. Everything is made fresh. You can actually see the guys cooking the food. Nothing fancy, but well worth the visit.

Stopped here at lunch time one day. Nachos and cold Coronas were great. Very friendly and great service! Will definitely go back this Dec for more choices from their extensive menu. Great location for people watching.

Sitting in this park-side boutique restaurant, you get the feel that you are right in the zone, for people watching and authentic Oaxacan cuisine. The staff is friendly, and very attentive to all your needs. The true Mexican fare includes the tacos, enchiladas, and tostadas...... but with the specialty entrees of steak, chix, and my favorite the Pescado (if you... More

The staff and food are top notch! What a great place to sit, enjoy a drink and a meal and people watch! The biggest issue with this place is deciding what to eat! You need more than one trip!

They have fast serving waiters, the food is excellent and varied and as a plus it is better priced than the other places around the crucesita central square. The iguana cocktail is a must try. :)
