The dinner was delicious. We celebrated our new year dinner at this great place. Also the service was perfect and the atmosphere outside is very nice.

We found Montezuma in high season to be so crazy, but this was a relaxing little oasis right in the heart of it all. Great healthy food, local beers, and a shady, relaxing back patio made this a lovely lunch spot.

We LOVED the smoothies here! We came back constantly for them! Also the fresh salads and fish all served in a beautiful back patio garden surrounded by coconut trees and the friendliest staff in Montezuma! A must see place.

We ate here a few times when in Montezuma -great wraps and smoothies for lunch, huge portions (can even share between 2). The garden at the back is lovely and shaded and a great place to sit and have a relaxing lunch.

Excellent typical food. Owner/waiter was so willing to accommodate our needs. We spent quite a bit of time there looking around and trying new things. Hope to go again.
