“Great Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Enjoyed Happy Hour here and tried new refreshing drinks. Bartender introduced us to a local drink made with Quatro plumas, and mint... Very refreshing. He was very friendly as a bartender, and also a great waiter at the sister resort Ylang Ylang. We were also informed the restaurant shows a nightly movie.

“Great food - good price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had lunch there several times on a recent 5 day visit to Montezuma. Food was great, staff was very friendly. Great movies in the evening.
Try the frozen lemonade - it is awesome.

“Cold food-not good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were tired after a day driving to get to montezuma...we found this place-the waiter was absolutely lovely and offered us happy hours drinks and also the food menu! Drinks were good but the food was cold and not really cooked...the burritos really were just wraps with red sauce on-very disappointing and certainly not cheap!
