“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

The food and service was fantastic, the Caprina drinks were amazing. Whats nice about this place is you can eat in the courtyard with a nice romantic setting or hit the patio along the main street in Montezuma. You truly can have two different experiences.

“Big portions”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
