My wife and I dine there this evening - loved the setting. Food was good but portions are small, too small for a dinner portion. Service was wonderful. Hard to find the entrance - look for a small sign along the green fence.

It actually may be one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. Everything about thus restaurant is perfect. The food is art - and the menu changes daily depending on what is fresh that day. I've eaten there countless times and its nearly an orgasmic experience every time. Yes, its a little pricey but you get what you... More

We had a lovely dinner at a low table on the beach. There were woven mats and cushions so we were not sitting directly on the sand, but our feet were in the sand. The table was lit with a single candle, and the menu is hand written and changes every day. It was very romantic, but I was only... More

Beautiful beach side setting, excellent food and drink list. Sunset candle light beach dinner. My wife said this was the most romantic place I have ever taken her in 25 years. I was a great experience. setting, food, and service

I think this was my most expensive meal in Montezuma, but the food is appropriately priced for what you get. The menu is more varied than the rest of the restaurants and changes often. I had an eggplant dish that was delicious. They also had a goat cheese crostino that I inhaled :) The ambiance is very romantic, so definitely... More

You can't beat the romantic location and ambience right on the beach! Food is gourmet, and delicious but not cheap, so if you're on a tight budget, this is not the place for you... Try to go a bit before sunset so you can at least see the ocean for a bit, then relax as the sun goes down and... More

I had the pleasure of eating here in December and thoroughly enjoyed it. Situated just outside Montezuma on a quiet beach the restaurant provides a great setting for dinner, the backdrop of waves crashing onto the beach as you eat is lovely and the food itself is delicious. The menu changes on a daily basis and provides a good selection... More

We live in the area part time and this place has always been a favorite.My tips may be hard for vacationers but here they are. 1) bring a flashlight as there are only candles for light and menus are hard to read. 2) if you have a beachside table bring bug spray as there are sand flies 3) I try...

We ordered 2 appetizers (vegetarian) and 2 entrees (1 vegetarian and 1 whole barracuda) and it was amazing. Great ambiance (get there at 5pm to enjoy the beach / light) and service was friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. I can't complain about anything. Follow other people's recommendations about how to find it (by the hotel Los Mangos) and... More

I'll make this short. Looking for a super romantic scene, feet in the sand, facing the ocean to candles as you eat? In need of a break from "ordinary" food in the area? Looking for some really good food prepared with imagination and flare? Then this is it.
