Great family friendly restaurant. ...always a favourite when we celebrate birthdays.
Montezuma’s is the best Mexican food I’ve had. Great menu and bar, so much better than any of the others.
Loved the whole dining experience - thank you very much
We have been visiting for 25 years and really enjoy the food and friendly atmosphere.
I have gone to Montezumas before, years ago. Decided to try them again (loved them the first time around) and take the twins this time (teenagers). They loved it and I still found it to be great. One had the meatballs, the other the San Andreas (? spelling) prawns in a pan. I had the San Antonio nachos with extras. The wine was good quality for the meal, the restaurant was a bit quiet (midday on a Friday) and the service was spot-on. Looking at going again next school holidays.
Nobody acknowledged us shen we arrived. When someone finally did, we were just pointed in the direction of our table. We were first to arrive but no sooner had the rest of our party sat down, we were asked if we were ready to order. When we said no, there was a lengthy period till we did get to order. The food took ages to arrive and didnt all arrive at the same time. We had to ask for a dessert menu and then there was another lengthy wait forbthe order to be taken then another long wait for the food to arrive which we were dissapointed in. Other members of our party had ordered cappuccinos and were not even offered sugar or a spoon. All in all a pretty ordinary experience
Was a busy Saturday night, but once we ordered the food it came in good time for 8 people. They were also happy to bring out a birthday cake we provided and sing Happy Birthday for one of the kids in our group, which was much appreciated. A fun, vibrant and noisy place with great food and drinks - but watch the hot plates especially with kids!
Unfortunately, we had some issues. For Fathers Day & free desserts 4 all fathers, the restaurant seemed understaffed. Of course, anything free will attract the crowds, Mr Manager/Mr Owner. Although the kitchen was fairly fast (fast for us, but our extended family thought they were slow) - our 2nd waiter (a young man) tried to charge us for the free fathers desserts x 3. My sister had to get a refund. He undercharged us and we had to do a 2nd Chargé for a meal he left off. When we were leaving, he was checking us out with 2 x other parties, whilst other families were trying to get in and be seated. It was chaotic to say the least. Husband noticed that the outside of the restaurant looked tired and the decorations looked very old. He also said one of the bathroom taps was broken and the light over one of the men’s bathroom cubicles was not working. I noticed that the toilets looked old and dirty. The front of the bathroom doors were covered in filth. There were also no men/women pictures on the bathroom doors for those who could not read Spanish (Senor/Senorita). Our father could not understand what they meant and had to ask his son-in-law to tell him which one was the men’s!! The meals were nice - but not as well presented as our regular Montezuma’s. For example: the chicken Enchiladas, had lettace/salad on the side - however, the cook had put the salad on the plate before putting it in the oven to warm - when it was served, the lettuce was a big pile of wilted mess. He should have put the lettace/salad on the places just before they were served, not before placing them in the oven. Compared to our 5 star Albany Creek restaurant - Taringa was quite the disappointing delivery, especially for Father’s Day.
My Husband and I have been going to Montezuma's for 24 years - it was actually our first dinner date. The service has always been terrific and the food is fresh, tasty and the portion just right. We both tried new dishes (for us) and were delighted with our choices.
Our reserved table was ready when we walked in, and we were able to order drinks and menu items quickly. We received our drinks and appetizers with not too much wait, but our food arrived well over an hour later. The service staff didn't stop by to enquire if we needed additional drinks while we waited, and when the food arrived, it was over done with the top of the rice dried out and burnt and the sour cream dried as well. The service staff raced off without enquiring if we needed drink refills, so we flagged one down and asked for a bottle of water. She brought it to us and raced off again without bringing glasses. We used one glass at the table for everyone to share. No one asked if we needed anything and the restaurant was virtually empty. It was very disappointing overall.
