Beers

Ensada Red Agave IPA (ABV 6.5% / IBU 90)

The nectar from the heart of an agave plant provides a hint of sweetness to balance out the pleasant bitterness of hte hops, creating a unique twist on a traditional IPA. Two-row barley and dark crystal malts lend to the rich red hue of this very refreshing beer

Day of the Dead - Blond Ale (ABV 5.6% / IBU 18)

This is a golden coloured beer of excellent balance. It has medium body, mild caramel sweetness and a soft pleasant bitterness

Bana Stout (ABV 6% / IBU 30)

Our oatmeal stout has a lightly roasted character and a full creamy head. The nearly black body produces some coffee and chocolate notes in the aroma. A perfect beer to pair with dessert, it can also be dessert itself

Further Information

Since 1978 Montezuma’s have built up a strong reputation for honest, wholesome, authentic Mexican food that has made their funky Crows Nest venue on Alexander Street a long-time fixture of any discussion on Sydney’s best, most affordable Mexican restaurants. Fun, vibrant and homely, Montezuma’s atmosphere and setting make it ideal for large groups and family meals (there is a diverse kids menu ‘for the little amigos’), though an excellent range of cocktails, over 30 Mexican beers, homemade sangria and other drinks makes it popular with young crowds looking for a relaxed night out. Still, it is undoubtedly the delicious, fresh food that has done the most to grow Montezuma’s reputation over the last 40 years.

The menu is huge and options diverse at Montezuma’s Crows Nest restaurant, so it’s impossible to imagine anyone not finding something memorable regardless of their spice tolerance, appetite, or particular taste preferences. Of course you’ll find the names of familiar Mexican favourites like tacos, burritos, chilli con carne, nachos, quesadillas and enchiladas, though the versions you enjoy here on Alexander Street are immeasurably more authentic than the norm around Sydney’s Mexican eateries, based on authentic traditional recipes and a mixture of premium local meat and vegetables complemented by quality spices brought from Mexico. Just bear in mind that Montezuma’s is seldom quiet (for obvious reasons) so it’s always wise to book a table before turning up to avoid disappointment!

We love Montezumas and its always special to go for birthdays with the birthday person's free meal. It's always good, but the last visit everything was extremely superb! Particularly the guacamole and the yummy veggie salad.

We’re frequent visitors to Montezuma’s and always get great food, generous portion sizes, great service and good value for money. They’ve also greatly improved efficiency at the bar so you needn’t wait. Always a fun time!

Excellent vegan options! So delicious! And very grateful that they split bills. The seating is really nice (we were in a two person booth at the back) I will return due to these points alone. In terms of service, I think it could be stepped up just a tiny bit (I asked for water and the waitperson told me to get it myself instead of bringing it to the table, for example). The vegan churros didn't come with melted chocolate like my friend's non-vegan churros did...a lot of dark chocolate is vegan so I really think that is something they should add to the dish. And lastly, I think it's crazy that guacamole isn't automatically included in vegetarian nachos!!! All in all though, I loved my meal and will be back.

They have drinks on the kids menu that are adult mocktails but there is nothing to indicate this, $8 for a mango slushy in a glass kids can't reach to drink from and end up spilling down the front of themselves. $12 for a margarita in a small tumbler. 3 kids drinks, 1 margarita, and 1 beer $46. The kids drinks took 30mins by which time the food had been finished. We asked for a side of guacamole with our order ($4.60) which came in a serving that was so small that 3 teaspoons and it was gone. The kids nachos was corn chips with a small amount of meat sauce on top, no guacamole or sour cream. Had to ask for more sides of these so the kids could have some. 3rd child ordered the soft shell tacos (implies multiple) , I was surprised to see that this meal is just 1 taco and was mostly lettuce. At $4.5 I now understand but they should make this clear so you know to order multiple. The adult meals were nice enough but the multiple disappointments detracted from what we had hoped would have been a nice dinner out with the kids.

Prompt, friendly and efficient service along with delicious meals and margaritas at reasonable prices. This was not my first visit and won't be my last. I highly recommend Montezuma's Crows Nest!

Great food, good atmosphere, generous portion, awesome combination for a nice dinner out. This place serves simple American style Mexican food, a breath of fresh air compared to all the hipster Mexican places that serves tiny fish tacos with chilli Mayo and call them tex-mex. This is great for group of friends, family or just 2 people.
