“Great food, strong drinks, gorgeous view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I had the Chicken Curry with rice, beans, and a salad. All fantastic! The Cuervo Margaritas were super tasty and strong. Delicious!
It is a bit pricey, but most restaurants in Montezuma are.

“Right on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This restaurant is right on the beach, so you can't beat the view. The best thing we had there were the mussels in a tomato sauce. They were only $6 and so tasty. Bar Restaurante Moctezuma has the COLDEST beer in all of Montezuma. I'm serious! We would go there specifically for the beer sometimes. Carlos and Brian, the bartenders/servers are great! We spent a lot of time chatting with them.

“Great Place for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Had lunch here a few times. The views are unbeatable...right on the beach!

The fresh fruit drinks are delicious and the beer is good. The food is good (which seems to be the case everywhere in Costa Rica!). It was a little expensive, but....
I also loved their salad with all the tomatoes and avocados. Really lovely, especially after a hot and active day.

We had the same server on both occasions. He was really nice. Middle-aged and mentioned that he had been in Chicago before. He made the experience of eating there even more pleasant.

“Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

This place has one of the best beach front restaurant views in Montezuma. Great for people watching, wave watching, and drinking. The drinks are a bit expensive, though. Great garlic calamari.
