“good food, firendly service wi-fi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We liked our meals and drinks and wifi.The ice tea and Thai curry were different and tasty. This is a nice place to stop for a rest and meal. We sat outdoors and came back a second time during our three day stay.

“good food - reasonable value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

went here for pizza/film night. The pizza itself was nice but slightly overpriced. I would recommend eating here if there is a film showing - it makes the food good value if you include the cost of watching the film!

Thanks for your positive remarks. However, I have to disagree with you about the Pizza being slightly overpriced. The 5 stars you gave us for service is part of the reason. The other reasons are the quality ingredients that go into our pizza and food across the menu. What many restaurants do on the peninsula is hire foreigners working illegally to bring down their government associated costs. Like social security and medical benefits. We don't and won't.
Consider it similar to Fair Trade policies and you will understand why we operate the way we do and offer the very reasonable prices for all the items on our menu.

Sincerely,

Lenny

“You've Got to Try the Ice Cream!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We had lunch here and enjoyed the back patio. There is no beach view which would be nice but you could hear it! The food was good, nothing special, and I could actually get brown rice which was a surprise! But, the ice cream is fantastic! A must if you're in Montezuma!

“Didn't eat there but their Margaritas are awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Stopped there waiting to get to Ylan Ylang and it was happy hour so we had a couple of Margs. If the Margs are any indicatin of the food this must be an awesome spot. :-)
