I come here all the time and absolutely love it! The staff are always so helpful and friendly, the food is always fresh and tasty and the $5 Sol Beers can't be beaten!

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

I have enjoyed a meal at the Aztec in Coolangatta on a number of occasions and each time find the service to be exceptional. The ambience of this restaurant is warm and inviting and boasts Mexican themes throughout. The food is always a delight and I love the Sangria.

The Aztec used to be one of my favourite restaurants to eat it. As a kid I would go there about 10 years ago. I always had great memories of the food being so good as I love Mexican cuisine. As of now I can't say much for the food it is gone down hill extremely. If the owners of... More

Parents and I went here for dinner tonight and it was delicious! We've been going to Montezuma's in Surfers for years so we thought we'd give the Aztec a go because we had a night in Cooli. The margaritas are great (and cheap!) and the meals are tasty and diverse, everything we love about Mexican food. Service was very friendly... More

The food here is good standard for Australia Mexican cooking. Good size meals & taste reasonably well. Bar service is very slow. Very noisy clients but what Mexican restaurant in Australia isn't, seems to bring out the loader people this food. Over all not to bad.
