Very average Mexican food.

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... read 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.

Good variety and tasty meals. Staff were friendly the only thing I could say I didn't like about this restaurant was that you had to order your drinks from the bar there was no table service for drinks.

Great food - Tuesday's are 2 for 1 dinner! The downside - the sangria tasted like it was a bottled cheap version (not made on the premises).

We were really looking forward to having a Mexican feed whilst on holidays, however we left feeling a bit disappointed in the quality of the food. The dips we ordered were very small on dip and big on corn chips. The flavour to one bean dip was nice the others tasted like they were out of a bottle. Tacos were... More

The best mexican around! Great food, Great cocktails and an even better atmosphere. Sitting out the front along the bar stools. The food is delicious, the service is prompt. The staff are very friendly, and assist with any decisions you are having trouble making. Favourite mexican of all time!

Nice atmosphere and interior but that,s about all,Margaritas expensive and tasted like frozen lemons no tequilla or not enough. The food was really ordinary again expensive for what was served and was like processed overheated food. Not very Mexican at all. We visit Coolangatta every year, won,t eat at Aztec again.
