Super fun and beautiful place for dinner. Great view of the ocean and ate by candle light. We had gnocchi with clams and a filo filled entrée. Both were excellent. Service was very good and whole place has a good vibe. Prices were typical of upper end dinner for the area.

We stayed in Montezuma for two nights and had dinner at this restaurant both nights. Why? All the other restaurants in with similar prices seemed to have less interesting menues and are most certainly not located about 5 meters from the ocean with outdoor tables to overlook the swells! We loved to sit so clise to the water while enjoying... More

My family of four went to dinner last night, July 3, 2014. My husband and I and two 20 year olds. We ordered four different plates. Zucchini with kale, cheese ect. Eggplant Parmesan, phyllo dough empenadas and seafood gnocchi. We all shared, Absolutely delicious. The sauces were so good we asked for extra bread to get every single bite. Planning... More

My boyfriend and I ate at this restaurant the last time we came to Montezuma two years ago. We sort of stumbled upon it and had basically struck gold. When we returned this time for my 35th birthday, it was just as I had remembered, enchanting, dreamy, and just amazing. The food is top notch - fresh, innovative, and delicious.... More

This is the fanciest restaurant in Montezuma. I enjoyed it. The first time I ate here, I had the pepper shrimp, which were HUGE and very great flavor. The next time I came, I had the roast beef which was very tender and had a great flavor. They have more beers to choose from that are considered craft versus other... More

Incredible food perched on the ocean's edge. The ocean view at sunset is the focal point of the dining experience with the food coming a close 2nd. The staff were incredibly kind, warm and helpful. Clever cuisine, artful presentation and warmth exudes. Recommend to anyone - whether dining as a group or alone. S

Great food, with unique/gourmet selections at a VERY reasonable price. Outdoor seating, with your feet in the sand. Perfect to watch the sunset (and eat something other than rice/beans).

This place is very nice. That's sure. But the food is quite of regular. Even more, the cook is super proud. Then do not complain, because the kind waiter (but he was kind) will report evthg. and the cook will take it personally (a couple seated close to us, from the USA experienced it). We were quite of embarrassed for... More

Playa de Los Artistas is a must when in Montezuma! Dine right on the beach and enjoy an excellent Mediterranean feast! You'll be entranced by the crashing waves just feet away, and enthralled as you watch the sun dip into the ocean at dusk. The menu changes daily, dependent on the catch of the day and the chef's fancy. Their... More

They were able to seat our big group all together. The ambiance wad the best we had but was not so impressed with the food. I think the dishes were hit and miss. some people were very pleased with their whole fish but the other dishes lacked flavor. I would still recommend going it ia a beauitful place.
