“Nice Ocean View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stopped in here for drinks and snacks and thoroughly enjoyed the place. The view is amazing. The crepes were good and the drinks were well... drinks. It's the location that's so wonderful. You're smack right on the ocean at one of the prettiest beaches ever and you've got "Costa Rican Blue Jays" landing on your table trying to steal your food. We had fun here.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This was the worst meal we had during a 3 week trip to Costa Rica. The food was bad and server was rude. It's a great location right on the beach but you can't hear the waves because they blare music and their bar and if you are having dinner you can't see the ocean because the light hangs down to just about head level so you can't see anything past your table.

“Don't eat here- Montezuma has so much more to offer”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The service was terrible and so was the food. Their casados were overpriced and greasy, and the sandwiches were extremely bland and dry. The servers are quite rude and slow. I would not recommend this place for anything other than the view, especially with the plethora of great places to eat in and around Montezuma.

“Avoid at all cost”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

We were recommended to go here mainly for the setting, that is all it has going for it.
We only went for lunch with our children and our Spanish isn't good so we pointed out on the menu as we had every where else, the young girl serving was the rudest waitress we have ever met, she never smiled once and virtually threw every thing at us. We back thinking it was a one off and she was even worse. I wouldn't give them your hard earned money as the food is not very good either!!!!
