The atmosphere was quite cute here and the staff were friendly. The margaritas (original one) was really yummy. Even so, the actual food was very run of the mill, bland and boring. If you want quick and sizeable that is bland you have come to the right place. The refried beans were like paste. Would not eat here again.

We ended up at Montezuma's, when our first choice location was absolutely overflowing with cheery groups of Xmas party crowds, & our second choice venue wasn't open. Stepping in to Montezuma's, the air-conditioning was a welcome relief from the scorching summer heat. There were only a few other diners, a stark contrast to the packed restaurant next door! The menu... More

Ate outside twice in one week, The food is delicious but band. Ask for their medium hot sauce, really spices up an otherwise unmemorable meal. Service was poor but typical Australian service. Reasonable location to scope out the backpackers in downtown Cairns. Good food but not great, expensive to me but average for Australia. The Sangria was great and they... More

Having read some of the reviews before I started this, I now find myself slightly bemused to say that we actually had a very nice evening here! Restaurant was not over busy but it was early. Staff were very friendly, especially the manager, and we had good service all evening. The margaritas were very tasty (and I had enough of... More

Very disappointing food, lacking flavour and heat. Ok service. We tried a jug of sangria with our meal which we doubted contained any alcohol.
