It was a nice break from the traditional Mexican restaurants. Very clean place on the high-end side and the food had great selection and very delicious. The portions are not very large but they are worth every penny, there is fine eating here.

I would like to give them 3.5 score if it was possible. Large menu with variety and prices very reasonable (10-12$ US/ entree). Service however, even by Mexico standards was slow. In addition, when they brought us frozen margaritas instead of on the rocks as ordered, they seemed annoyed when we didn't want them. But with the limited restaurants in... More

The food and drinks were very tasty and various options are on the... More

We talked with people who considered Terra Cotta the best restaurant in Hualtuco if not all of Mexico so, as we were staying close by, had breakfast and dinner both a couple of times during our stay. The food was consistently good, not great, and the chocolate cake trumps the carrot cake. The margaritas were also very good. Service varied.

4 of us started with three appetizers (spinach dip, coconut shrimp, small suprema pizza).All were excellent. Entrees included fish tacos, chicken tacos, pecan coated fish fillet and chicken enchalatas. Large portions and excellent taste.

Had dinner here as a last minute decision and they were able to accommodate us. I'd read the reviews and had high expectations which I sometimes find is hard for a business . Husband had soup that was good but over salted and chicken stuffed with spinach which was OK but also over salted. I had salad with apple and... More
