Of the many restaurants at which my wife and I dined in Costa Rica, this was the best. Even superior to those that were more expensive. The only thing that rivals this food's taste is its presentation. The staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed at the hotel 3 nights, and thus had 6 meals here. The only negative was the open-air design made your syrup vulnerable to fly attacks. We learned quickly to order breakfasts without syrup, and were no longer bothered by flies.

We're not vegan (or even close), but I did notice there were many choices for those that are (unlike the typical 1 or 2 choices you might see at an average restaurant).

The views are also marvelous. My favorite dishes were the Caribbean rice with chicken and the bananas flambe.

Yes it is a bit of a walk from the center of town but isn't that why you are in Montezuma...to try new and different things? The food is excellent and healthy! Our family of 5 spent 3 great days there. We loved the property and the many animals on site. The spa was over priced so we skipped it but we would go back!!

Ylang Ylang serves margaritas as big as your head, 2-for-1, during a 3-hour-long happy hour with a gorgeous view of the beach. The margaritas are perfect, not too sweet, and taste fresh and tart. Then there's the food! We shared a raw vegan sushi appetizer, and I devoured the curried vegetables. Perfect!

If you can get here by foot off the beach you won't be disappointed. Great drinks and appetizers.

The food at the resort is excellent. Try anything with chicken...it's amazing. Some of the best nachos I've ever had!
