Description: Montezuma's Labrador offers a fully licensed authentic Aztec/Mexican dining experience.Our meals are prepared fresh daily using locally grown produce where possible and cooked in convection ovens. Our meals are not too spicy but for those who love it that way, do not hesitate to order hot or extra hot sauce. If you wish to tone down the spices order a bowl of sour cream.We cater for vegetarians and those requiring a gluten free diet.There is a special menu for the little amigos and colouring in to keep them occupied.As we have a large number of loyal regulars, bookings are highly recommended.

We were just looking forward to having a great dinner. We had booked it . Once we arrived the lady at the counter acted like we hadn't booked. While there was only two booths full. But after all the trouble we got to sit down and relax . After that we ordered our dinner. When our entrée came it was... More

Thank you for your feedback Mincrafter. I am disappointed that you didn't enjoy your Montezuma's experience this time around. Montezuma's Labrador has not changed management since the last time you would have dined with us. We have, however, a lot of new staff at the moment who are still learning the ropes but this is not an excuse. The owner... More

You were very lucky to be able to get a table without booking on our busy family Monday nights, so that's great our wonderful staff were able to help you with that. As for our Monday nights Kids 12 years & under Eat Free deal, no it is not normally something that is stated by our staff. There is a... More

Greeted promptly by staff and shown to our table, given the choice to select drinks from the bar or have table service, starters orders taken and brought to the table while we had time to decide on our mains. Always a great mains selection to choose from and never go away hungry or disappointed. Always a great night whether with... More

This was our second time here. First, the starters are a waste of time. The chips definitely come from a bag from the grocery store and the salsa taste like it comes out of a can. We ordered Margaritas which again taste like it comes from a pre-made mix. Being a Mexican restaurant, it needs to be more on the... More

Like all businesses, we appreciate constructive honest criticism. Thank you for your feedback regarding our wait staff. This matter will be discussed with them. I would like to assure you that our Mexican meals are definitely not from the "supermarket" or "out of cans" & no margaritas or cocktails are "pre-mix". Our meals are prepared fresh daily & cooked in... More

As soon as we arrived we were greeted with rude, inexperienced female waitresses. No one paid attention to is at all, I booked a reservation and they made us feel like inconvenient walk ins. I would not recommend this place to anyone! The service was utterly disgusting.

Firstly, I named my review shocked, as I am shocked that this restaurant has bad reviews. We dined in Last Saturday and the experience was amazing. The atmosphere was great, a little loud but that's what happens when your busy! The staff were on the ball and the manager was very charismatic, my partner said he was worth his weight... More

Thank you so much for your positive review Sia J! It was wonderful to read great things about Montezuma's after a few bad reviews of late which have left us a bit disappointed that people haven't been enjoying the Mexican experience as much as we had hoped.

We went there on a Monday night with no reservation. After first being told that there would be over an hour's wait by one female staff member, a male staff member later got us in immediately. The service was a bit puzzling. Apparently patrons have to go to the bar to get a jug of tap water because they don't... More

The food was sensational. No one had a complaint about their meals. Sadly, the service was lacking. Between missing the child's menu and being exceptionally slow to ask us about desserts, the service lacked speed and care, but the queso was delicious, the hot sauce was extremely hot and flavorsome and the churros were cooked to perfection! The food is... More

Thank you for your honest review. I am very pleased you found the food to your liking & we were able to help you out with allergy concerns. We are currently training some staff & that may have been the reason for some dissatisfaction with service, but this is no excuse. I will pass on your comments to our manager... More
