Montezuma’s on Alexander Street has long been the standard-bearer for authentic Mexican eating in Crows Nest. Everything is made fresh in-house from scratch, diners can dictate their level of spice from mild to tongue-tingling, and in addition to familiar Mexican favourites Montezuma’s offer a selection of harder-to-come-by and hard-to-forget Mexican specialties including their succulent mole poblano chicken, tasty tamale pie and albondigas meatballs. Just remember that Montezuma’s has been a firm Sydney favourite for years, so it’s no hidden secret and advance bookings are strongly advised to ensure a table!
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
Food was great once again, not rushed out the door either which was a bonus
amazing food, the service could use some work. It takes time for the servers to come up to you when you enter the restaurant and then again for drinks or when we are done with the meal. But when they are serving you they are friendly enough
Always like eating here the food is tasty and the service friendly
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!
