“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

The nachos are so good, and the "magic mocha chiller" really is magic! Good food, drinks, and service. Would definitely go there again next time we're in Montezuma.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were impressed with the location and food at this resort. They show movies in the restaurant once a week which I thought was a great idea. I didn't get to see any of the hotel rooms but the restaurant was clean and had a good variety of foods.

“Unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

One of our favorite places in Montezuma, for its uniqueness. The menu is more extensive than most places in Zuma, and it's always fresh and they pride themselves in using local, fresh products that are healthy and delicious. It's also unique in that the service is quicker than most places there, and also very attentive. There are TV's that you can watch sporting events from around the world and they are very good to cater to your needs, and spent a lot of time finding the right basketball game for our friend. The fact that they show movies is just outstanding, a great dinner, movie, drinks, by the ocean. Love it, please don't ever stop this. I also love their fruit products that they sell, and will order some on line - like super fresh fruit roll ups with fruit from the area.

“A spiritual place :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food is very good, the staff very organized. I liked the spiritual banners and motivational inscriptions on the walls. You can also sit outside - either facing the street and watching the colorful people, or in the backyard (very romantic with candlelight)...

“Friendly place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

This became out "go to" spot for breakfast and dinner. Service was great with very friendly staff, one of whom we had met on the boat and was very helpful during our stay. The food was very good as were the drink selections. It's a bit more touristy than other places in the town, but that meant a nice mix of local culture and good service. The back area is very romantically lit in the evening.
