You have to go here if you are in Montezuma. I wished I could have stayed in Montezuma longer so I could have tried everything on their menu. We went twice in one day! It's pricey, and the portions are a little small, but you...More

I love a menu that makes it difficult for me to decide! Everything we ate here was excellent--fish tacos, a salad, mole enchiladas. The menu changes regularly and the dishes are creative and fresh. The beers we tried were very good as well. Loved the...More

We ate three times in the restaurant. They have a small and changing menu with interesting local dishes. The dishes are very creative. In our two week travel, this was by far the best food and we tried hard to find good restaurants. The food...More

We stayed at the Butterfly Gardens hotel - so this restaurant was very convenient for my wife and I. I had three fish tacos (mahi mahi) and my wife had a salad. Both were delicious. We also tried the craft beers - 3 were available...More

Our first visit was amazing. Fresh salsa, a custom made hot sauce platter from the chef, delicious meals! The second visit, not so much. Half the menu items from two nights ago were erased from the board. Salsa that was basically water, the food was...More

Hello Matt, I’m truly concerned about your experience in Clandestina. Obviously, our aim is consistency and happy costumers, even when we do have a chalkboard menu that changes all the time. Various reasons for this; the remoteness of our stablishment, our oscillating flow of tourists,...More

We came for the brewery but found out this place serves food as well. I had we had street tacos & enyucados. The enyucados were magical little balls of goodness. This place is worth the bumpy drive.

My boyfriend and I ate dinner at Clandestina while on vacation in Montezuma. We had two of the beers they brew there (a Belgian & a pale ale). They were pretty good! They also had a list of cocktails and wine. I had the chicken...More

This small spot is by the path to the waterfall in Montezuma. The drinks are all very special and homemade. Super yummy, healthy cocktails and special sodas and beers. The food is really great too, seemingly prepared with love, and all the staff was super...More

We didn’t realize how far of a walk it was from Montezuma so made the trek on foot up a giant hill, which I don’t recommend. Once we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff who explained the menu and made great recommendations. My friend...More
