“Birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

I'm so glad I chose to eat my birthday dinner at this place! It's not cheap (but then nothing in Montezuma is) but worth every penny. I thoroughly enjoyed everything my husband and I ordered, from the cocktails and local craft beers to the ceviche and my main course, which was mahi mahi with mashed potatoes, if I remember right (slightly hazy memory).
I really liked the laid back, open air atmosphere close to the beach.
The staff was super friendly and the waiters kept wishing me happy birthday, which was sweet.

“Wow! We really enjoyed their food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We had a late lunch at Cocolores one afternoon while in Montezuma, and just chose a restaurant randomly...and we did make an excellent choice! We enjoyed a couple beers and ordered the fish with garlic, and the coconut fish curry. The garlic fish was very good, not over-cooked, and a very large fillet; and my friend's curry was outstanding (we shared)! The sides were good as well. After our beers, and the excellent meal we were both a little tired and the ride back to our hotel was sounding long, so we ordered their black coffee with cream. Again, absolutely excellent, and we were perky enough to make it back happy, awake and full for our siesta. After reading another review or 2, I can understand how someone would want to eat there several times a week.

“delicious food and great beers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

We ate lunch here yesterday, what a find! The bruscheta was perfection, a Lebanese salad with smoked fish was delicious and the ceviche was to die for. All washed down with a couple of locally brewed beers. The Redhead beer was the best. Best food in montezuma, worth every penny.

“Can not get a bad meal here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We ate here 5 or 6 times in our 2 week trip. Could not find anything on the menu that was not amazing. Max does a great job and is very talented.

Thank you for taking such good care of us. We miss you guys :)
