Best Food and best prices

I tried several different restaurants in Montezuma over the week that I was there and after eating at Kalibo I kept coming back because the food was the best and their prices were the most reasonable too.

My husband and I found this restaurant on our first night in Montezuma at the end of Nov and ended up eating four out of six dinners there. The food is wonderful and the chef fantastic. It was the best food we ate in Costa Rica and so very reasonable. Fabulous fish dinners. Our compliments to chef Jose and Christina.... More

Best fish I had in costa rica. Very affordable and huge menu. Service was slow but they make the gourmet style food fresh the moment you order it. And with such a large menu, its impressive they can deliver in such a time. The food was AMAZING! Lastly, to anyone who complained about the wait below, your on vacation... calm... More

Kalibo is located just outside of the town center of Montezuma and isn't in the most attractive spot. It is across the street from the ocean but also from the bus stop, where the plodding local buses often pull in. It is also, like so many restaurants in Montezuma, completely overtaken by flies. However, it has fresh and completely delicious... More

We really appreciate your opinion! Thnank you for being so objective and realistic, describing the things the way they are! Yes, you can see the beach right in front and really enjoy the colors and the breese and also when the bus comes you can watch the people getting off and on. Some really enjoy that, others don´t (we´re different,... More

We spotted this little gem of a restaurant on our way to drop off our laundry up the road and decided to try it out for dinner in the evening. It turned out to be the best decision of our time in Montezuma. Really excellent food, and we came back the next day for more. On the first evening we... More

I fell there just for curiosity and I felt immediately the pura vida's style of Costa Rica. They have really good tuna fillet and a wide menu, but the best was the service, because they are worried about details. The best choice in Montezuma.

Signature smoothie is avocado, mango and coconut milk -- mmm! Nice for a light breakfast and one of only a handful of places where we found good coffee in Montezuma.
