This place doesn't try to pretend to be anything more than it is; a basic watering hole that's comfortable for locals & tourists a like. Some dancing later in the night on the back porch and back yard. At least the beers are served cold.

This was our only bad dining experience during our trip. The cerviche was really bad and the casado was very plain. There are many great places in Montezuma, try somewhere else.

We ate here for lunch twice while visiting Montezuma both times we really enjoyed our food and loved that it's located right on the beach. I would recommend the chicken or vegetable curry, not very spicy but still flavorful. But the smoked salmon and the clams were the highlight, both were so fresh and flavorful. The salmon was on their... More

We stopped here for lunch because it seemed nice to be able to eat near the beach. The view is great and the staff was nice however the food was bland. I had the fried fish and fries and there seemed to be no salt on it at all. The fries were abit under cooked for my taste also. They... More

Great location, vibe and staff, plus a varied menu.... Should have made for a good experience. But the food was bland- had me reaching for the salt and pepper and asking for hot sauce, anything to add some flavour. So disappointing - wish we had gone somewhere else!

Very friendly staff, speaking good English too. Above all the view is spectacular, you almost sit directly on the beach overlooking the pacific, fisher-boats and palm trees!! There is a good variety of food and the music volume/type is just right for this place, relaxed and gentle. Highly recommended!

We had a few drinks in the afternoon and enjoyed the view, so we decided to have supper there that evening. The food was ok. Our meal arrived cold, so the sauces were some what congealed. We arrived late in the supper hour, there is one server, but she was quite efficient and friendly. I believe that our meals where... More

when you get away to this city, this is the only place their that stays open late into the night serving beers and drinks. We enjoyed it and even tried a little salsa dancing.
