I went to this restaurant quite a few times with my girlfriend and friends(Ricardo and Adriano,etc.) The food is good and the prices are good! The bartender Hugo is the best. He is really nice and funny! He offered great service and was fun to talk to. We miss you Hugo! Happy holidays!!

Great location right on the beach and it''s open on 3 sides so you get some breeze/air movement plus the best view of the beach/ocean. Basic type of Costa Rican no frills place to eat. I reserved my dinners for Chico's Bar & restaurant next door where they had a really good curry chicken filet dish (outdoor tables in the... More

Hi I thought you are doing a review of my restaurant, not Chico´s. Let me tell you that these people without scruples or shame, hired an ex chef and copied our menu exactly.....Montezuma restaurant is not a frills place, but has original recipes and fresh ingredients since 1993. Next time I invite you to try our chicken curry and maybe... More

We had the paella, and it was excellent. Sangria was average. Service was good. Bugs were annoying, but not much you can do about that...the bright lights above each table attracts them.

Surely the best vantage point in Montezuma to take in the spectacular views of the Pacific ocean and the beautiful beach on the edge of town. The food and drinks were as you would expect though device was a little on the slow side as is the norm in this part of the world. Highly recommended for chill.out time.

The place has a great view to the ocean, the service wasn´t the best but, the food was in big portions and tasty, plus a nice blue jay just land in the middle of the restaurant and show off, Very good chicken sandwich and huge portions !

My family and I had lunch here while visiting Montezuma for the day from Santa Teresa in Oct 2015. The view of the restaurant is gorgeous! However, the food is not very well prepared or tasty and the drinks were not great. I probably wouldn't return but definitely worth the view and relaxing atmosphere.

If restaurants were like picking real estate, you gotta go to this one. Great location right on the beach. Fun staff and they are very accommodating to those who struggle with their spanish skills. The food was suprisingly good in my opinion. I saw others' reviews and I'm not sure what they were expecting. This is a very remote part... More

This restaurant offers a big selection of dishes. It means, feels and tastes that it doesn't specializes in anything, and indeed I strongly believe that I got a heated dish, that wasn't even heated properly. The atmosphere is fine, though, and they do accept credit cards. If you don't expect much of your food, this is a reasonable place.
