Trip Report Huatulco Mexico

Jump to last reply

Traveled here to Huatulco Mexico from my last stop in VeraCruz Mexico. The beaches here in Huatulco are probably the most beautiful and dramatic by far. Gorgeous views with rocky coastline and then sandy beaches. Some of the beaches are small and deserted and some are larger and more crowded.
Last night we went to the most amazing restaurant I have been to since traveling in Mexico. It is called Sonadores/Dreamers Restaurant Bar. It is located on Gardenia Street in La Crucecita.
When we arrived, they promptly set us at a table under some beautifully lit umbrellas on a patio with a fountain and lots of plants. Charming! Then they brought us warm towels and washed our hands..something I have never experienced anywhere else in my travels in Mexico. We ordered some cocktails and a bottle of wine from their wine list which offered a wide variety of countries to choose from. We decided to share a Crab Ravioli as an appetizer which is made fresh with homemade Pasta while you wait. For dinner I decided to have the Filet Mignon with Tequila Lime Sauce and my friend had the Poblano Chicken served over homemade Pasta. But before we received our appetizer, the waiter arrived with what they called the Chefs surprise. It was smoked Salmon with Caviar. What a delight! We hardly had to wait and they were serving us the fresh Ravioli with a delicate mushroom lemon sauce. It was incredible.
Then when we finished our appetizer, before the main course, they brought another surprise which was a small serving of lemon sorbet to cleanse our palate. Now thats taking care of the client! We had just finished the "cleanse" when our food arrived and let me tell you that was the best steak I had eaten anywhere! Tender, cooked perfectly, and a sauce to die for. My friends Poblano Chicken was also delicious and of course we had to taste each others dish. At the end of our main course, out came these incredible deserts. I chose a pineapple coconut cake and my friend had a chocolate caramel with fresh strawberry. They were both out of this world and they told us they were made in house as well as the bread. The food flavors here are to die for with fresh flavorful ingredients! The service was like a timed machine and even before I knew I needed something the team of waiters were there taking care of refilling the drinks, or whatever we needed. Impeccable service! I was thoroughly pleased and was amazed when the bill came as it was not that expensive. Then they told us they have a 2 for 1 pasta night on Thursday nights that changes weekly. Luckily for us, we are still going to be here on Thursday for only 120 pesos for 2 (less than 11 dollars)and we will be back then for sure! On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this a 10+. I would recommend you put this on your list of one of the top places to visit when visiting Huatulco!
