Not sure how they stay in business. Very average so called Mexican. No others in Cairns probably keeps it alive. Make yours at home.

Positive: staff is very friendly. Atmosphere is nice. Negative: the food is mediocre at best. I'm from Texas so I might have a slightly skewed perspective based on being raised on Mexican food, but based on my experience the food is not worth the money. Also, it's extremely over-priced. A single enchilada will run you about $16-20.

Have to say I was very disappointed. Have been going to Montezuma's for years in different places throughout Queensland.Always been great. Second time here. It was not a good experience, food just not up to scratch.

Just visited this restaurant and it was really average. My taco had really cold meat - almost verging on frozen! The other items on the plate were hot. The explanation from the kitchen was that the lettuce on the plate caused it to be cold. I am talking cold not warm! We ordered margaritas and they were great BUT we... More

Very very tiny portions. Low grade ingredients. Coming from america where mexican food is big this is a sad excuse to be called a mexican restaurant. Waiters were good can't complain about the staff. Save yourself amd eat somewhere else

Service, price, quality and quantity were excellent. We had the San Antonio nachos and made our own Fajitas and shared a couple of litres of the Montezuma's special Sangria. Nick the owner seemed to be everywhere during the night as he made all customers feel important.

We visited as we had an entertainment book voucher. Planning to go to the movies afterwards & as promised our meals came our super quick. Meals were average, nothing overly exciting. We're big fans of mexican food, so have higher standards

Unfortunately the food we had was dry and tasteless I don't know if it was just what we ordered but I'm pretty sure fajitas should be nailed in the kitchen by now. You pretty much get what you pay for its cheap but it reflects in the food. So my advice is have a few beers first and maybe the... More
