My wife and I visit Coolangatta most years. As I am an avid Mexican food fan WE decided to go to The Aztec. BIG mistake- Small meal! I have never before been served up such a tiny meal at such a BIG price. Also, I usually pre judge Mexican eateries by the yum smells coming from the kitchen. There was... More

Food was diabolical. I had the Mexican Ribs. Uninspiring and dry. Other dishes ordered were similarly ordinary. The only highlight was the service and location. If this place could get the food in order it would be half decent. Can't compete with Bonita Bonita, Pablo Pablo or even Kommune

The Aztec restaurant has relocated from it's previous home to just a few hundred metres further east and a lot closer to the border of Queensland and New South Wales,literally a couple of metres. Greeted by the friendly staff we took our seat and shortly after the carafe of Margarita we had ordered was before us. Our lunch meals arrived... More

I took my parents for a Mexican Lunch while they were on a visit and we decided that we would return to Aztec for we never had a bad meal there... and once again they certainly didn't dissapoint. We all ordered #12 Yucuita and it was simply devine! We will be back for sure.

The staff at Aztec were very friendly and welcoming. Decor is comfortable and lots of variety on the menu. Only issue was the lack of oomph in the flavour. Mexican food is meant to be full of flavour and spicy. My dish was listed as spicy although had little flavour and minus zero spiciness. I was searching for the salt... More
