“Incredible delectables”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

The menu offers something for everyone and is quite extensive. The food is prepared to order and mostly made of organically grown products. You can taste how much care goes into the preparation and presentation. The restaurant staff is most welcoming and friendly. The "romantic dinner" (having dinner on the beach lite by tiki torches with special attention given to you) is highly recommended. Also, try the new drinks made from fresh coconut milk made at the restaurant.

“Good, but not special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

i ate here once, and it was good. i didn't think the quality to price ratio was appropriate, as the prices are geared toward the north american tourists. if you want awesome food, you can stay in town and avoid the long walk and get a better immersion experience.

“Excellent food, great service, and a very romantic setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

The restaurant at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort has a great menu based on very fresh ingredients and mostly organic foods, with lots of variety. The service is excellent and the kitchen is very fast. The oceanside location, views, and sound of waves crashing makes the experience enchanting.

“Beautiful setting and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

We decided to visit Ylang Ylang for a relaxing lunch on our last day in Montezuma and were not disappointed. After walking up the beach from the town we asked if we could use the swimming pool before lunch and, once reception had checked with the manager, were told that this was not a problem and provided with towels.
The pool area is beautiful and the gardens throughout the resort and amazing. There was plenty of wildlife to see as well.
Lunch was excellent - we had sushi and shrimp quesadilla both of which were very tasty. There is a great choice of options on the menu at very reasonable prices for a smart resort. We wished we had booked to stay here for a couple of nights!!
We relaxed by the pool again after lunch and had a walk round the ground before a lazy walk back up the beach to Montezuma.
Overall an excellent place to visit for lunch or afternoon happy hour cocktails if you are not staying here.
