“Big portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Great drinks menu... cheeky cockatails at 2pm always go down well! Ordered a quesadilla... very greasy but very filling. On main road - great to people watch from.

“Great drinks and food with movies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Affordable food and drinks with excellent service. Indoor and outdoor seating with a large movie screen indoors. Movies were played every other night. Fish tacos recommended!

“Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I ate here but would not want to stay here. Their food was very tasty and they offer vegetarian dishes. I loved the patacones with bean dip and guacamole. For accommodations, El Sano Banano is very, very central. And Montezuma can get hot, dusty and crowded.

“Fairy garden dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

A small group and I had dinner there. Prices were average, our dinners averaged about $10-12 each. Food was nicely prepared. I had an avocado wrap, which I would recommend. The garden is charming at night with lights strung in the trees. The waiter was very charming and helpful and spoke excellent English. Portions were smaller than usual in CR and still sufficient. Overall a good experience.

“great for movie night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The food is good and decent enough for bar food. The real fun is whatever movie they are watching that night you will be left whenever you see that movie again remembering the little town of Montezuma that you saw it in. Great spot to start your night. After seeing the movie there are some fire performers that show up around nine thirty and that is a sight you will want to see!
