We stopped here a few times while in town and it was always good. They'll make smoothies in any possible combination that you can think of. Had huevos rancheros one morning for breakfast and it was terrific. A solid choice.

This was by far the best Casados we have tried in Costa Rica. This is a simple family run soda and the host is welcoming and attentive. We ate here twice and often saw people look at the menu and walk on to the more expensive places in town. You must visit this restaurant at least once when in Montezuma.

We walked in here without knowing about it because we were just so hungry but we were pleasantly surprised to find cheap food that tasted great! Cute little spot to people watch. The casados was very good, chicken was seasoned really well and the fish was delicious as well. Definitely worth a stop :)

The food here is fantastic. Juan is a fabulous chef. My family and I made friends with him while visiting Montezuma 4 years ago and reconnected with him on our most recent trip. He excels at mixing flavors in his dishes -- some of the best food I've ever had with absolutely beautiful presentation! Don't miss out on this experience... More

Wood fired BBQ was sensational and just what I needed after a long day of hiking and surf. What a treat! I will return next time I visit for sure, my favorite little village and my new favorite BBQ.

The guacamole and chips were so fresh and yummy. The main dishes, jumbo shrimp and chicken with pineapple sauce, were also very good. Service was great.

As titled we just kinda wandered in after Organico's dinner menu did not catch our eye, and the next place smelled of sewage. They had a fresh yellowtail ceviche and special filet that were both amazing, also a vegetable curry, and a hearts of Palm and avocado salad that were both very good. Also they make a tasty breakfast. I... More

My favourite item here was the patacones served with guacamole and a tomato sauce. Freshly cooked and so perfectly tasty - these were the best patacones I had on my trip overall (but of course I temper that with the fact that I wasn't on a "let's find the best patacones in Costa Rica" trip, haha). We also got a... More
