“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had the best experience here. Sat by the ocean in the dark. Tried a variety of dishes and loved all of them-- we even came back for dinner again the second night. Lots of fresh fish. Personal service. Good wine.

“great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went for our friends anniversary and the setting was perfect for couples - candle lit by the beach and it was a gorgeous evening. The menus were hand written daily, which was real unique. The waitress was very helpful at explaining the menu. The service was great. I gave one mark off for a fish bone in my red snapper breaded dinner. However, it was very tasty!! Would recommend it to any one who travels to Montezuma.
