Great food, and awesome atmosphere, with your dinner table with candle light right on the sandy beach. Very romantic with waves crashing right near you. I'd have given it 5 stars but for whatever reason (recent rain?) there were so many ants crawling around that we only had wine and an appetizer and left. Word of caution, they only take... More

We sat outside right on the beach. Unique dishes, all very fresh. Of course, many seafood choices, but also vegetarian offerings. I would go there every night!

Only open for dinner, but the food, ambiance, and setting was awesome. The menu rotates and was only in Spanish, but they did come out and help people and explain it. I would highly recommend this place, but it is a little more pricey.

This is my second trip to Montezuma and this was hands down the best meal. The sunset, beach front setting was amazing and the food was so fresh.

During a 3 week trip to this awesome village I went to this restaurant 3 times. This is a great place for drinks, but only for the view. Be prepared to pay Monaco prices for a tiny "jug" of red or white wine poor quality wine. Again, The view is absolutely amazing! The food on the other hand is not... More

Right close to the beach sitting and enjoying all the sounds of the night and the waves of the Pacific was very nice. Candle light and a nice drink made a perfect romantic atmosphere. The food and service not very special. We will return anyway.

With a menu that changes daily, and a perfect candle-lit setting on the beach with waves providing the accompanying music to the meal, it is hard to imagine a prettier place to eat. The food matches the beauty of the setting-- among the top meals ever. We had a wonderful grilled sea bass with a vinegar sauce, ceviche, a seafood... More

My sister and I only had time to stop in for a drink, but I was keen to visit after Playa de los Artistas had been highly recommended by a friend. It is indeed a perfect setting to relax at sunset, sitting almost right on the beach with sand under your feet. Drinks were lovely but can't speak for the... More

Wow! what a beautiful romantic spot right on the beach! It is more like a Mediterranean affair menu, but none the less amazing. We had the cannelloni and it was fantastic. This was our first time, but we will be back to try more from their menu.
