We have been visiting Montezuma's for years and always squeeze a visit in when we are in town. We really love their food as it's fresh, good quantities and not too spicy for us. The service is always good and the manager is always friendly as well. We will visit here again I'm sure.

We went here for what we thought would be a good old fashioned Mexican meal. What a disappointment. We thought Mexican food was supposed to be spicey. Well not in this restaurant. The food was warm and dry. We ordered sangria to drink, again disappointing. It looked and tasted as though it had come out of a carton and not... More

Had dinner here recently. Staff were great and had a casual atmosphere. Large number of items on the menu so something for everyone. Licensed - good margeritas.

Been going here for years. Food is so yummy. Service is friendly & attentive. Highly recommend. Only suggestion is the venue is getting a bit old & tired and needs a good scrub clean & paint job

This was a favourite for many years but not as good as it was in the old days. Went the other night and food was ok. but not what it used to be. There seems to be less meat in the Nachos and Enchiladas and way to much sloppy bean mix. The guacamole is just mashed avocado with no flavour... More

We go out for tea once a week and have been to Montezuma's a few times. We thought we would try some different restaurants but have decided the Montezuma's is the place to go. The meals are very reasonably priced. The service is excellent and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. MONTEZUMA'S YOU ROCK!!!!!!!

Have read some bad reviews of this place, decided to check it out for ourselves . First we ordered a Margarita, it looked great, but was so salty we could not drink it . Mains were not too bad. Dessert... I ordered the Platano De Pina . A hot banana encased in a cinnamon tortilla drizzled with Pineapple glaze and... More

This was my fav. restaurant and have eaten here for years first as a tourist visiting a few times a year and then as a local over the last few years and find it has gone from excellent to average over the last few years. Our waiter was lovely and could not fault her service. No water was brought to... More

My partner and I go here on a regular biases. We quite like the food and the survive is normally quite prompt. The food is not overly authentic but is nice all the same.
