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.

Artistas is hard to find but worth looking for - very quaint/unique ... food/menu is prepared fresh daily. Just hard to see when walking from road to restaurant ONLY TAKES CASH

It's not easy to impress me. This place certainly did. It was so good that I went back twice in a six-day-vacation! The servers are multi-lingual and explain the menu, cooking methods, sauces, portion size and so on in detail. I was mentally commending their professionalism when I overheard the same server at an adjacent table, going through the same... More

Situated just a few minutes walk outside Montezuma town, this restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere. Sitting in front of the ocean having tasty food with candlelight. We had 2 entree and 2 mains which were delicious. Very attentive and helpful service helped us to choice, even if everything on the menu was tempting.

Great food and service. Fresh fruit cocktails (read: Mango Mojitos) I recommend to get there at 5pm for the perfect light and enjoy as the candles come out and light up the beach.

The food is really delicious, the service is fantastic, view is amazing. Would have received five stars if my entree wasn't appetizer sized. It's easy to miss this restaurant, but it's right across the dirt road from Los Mangos Hotel. There is a small gate with a small sign. Closed during Sept and October.

Great atmosphere, a romantic and charming place. Don't go there hungry, though, because plates are small and very expensive. Get a glass of wine and bring your bugspray.

We braved a rainstorm to go here for our one night in Montezuma - although we didn't get to partake of the view we could hear the waves and the rain, and that plus the beautiful interior and candle light made it plenty romantic. We thought for sure that they would take a credit card, but it turned out to... More
