The menu offers a wide variety of fresh and healthy options. We ordered drinks, an appetizer and two main dishes. All of them were tasty, nicely presented and provided filling portions. We only stayed in Montezuma for two days and ate two meals here, so that tells you something!

The best part of the restaurant was the service. Our waiter, Hubert, was so helpful in filling us in on things to do in town as well as arranging reservations at Ylang Ylang restaurant, which has the same owners.

We will definitely be back if we are in Montezuma again. Thanks again, Hubert!

We liked our meals and drinks and wifi.The ice tea and Thai curry were different and tasty. This is a nice place to stop for a rest and meal. We sat outdoors and came back a second time during our three day stay.

went here for pizza/film night. The pizza itself was nice but slightly overpriced. I would recommend eating here if there is a film showing - it makes the food good value if you include the cost of watching the film!

Thanks for your positive remarks. However, I have to disagree with you about the Pizza being slightly overpriced. The 5 stars you gave us for service is part of the reason. The other reasons are the quality ingredients that go into our pizza and food across the menu. What many restaurants do on the peninsula is hire foreigners working illegally to bring down their government associated costs. Like social security and medical benefits. We don't and won't.
Consider it similar to Fair Trade policies and you will understand why we operate the way we do and offer the very reasonable prices for all the items on our menu.

Sincerely,

Lenny
