My teenager son and I frequent Montezuma's as we love their food and we always love their taco's, quesedilla's and enchilada's..not forgetting their nacho's or Sangria ! On Tuesday night we booked at Coolanagatta's Montezuma's to be pleasantly surprised by their 2 for one main meals!! What a deal. Same high quality service, food and deliciousness - Thank you Montezuma's... More

I've dined at many Montezumas and I suspect they are going down the same path as Sizzlers insofar as the prices are becoming ridiculously high whilst the quality and quantity of the food head in the other direction. My meal was almost all chopped salad style verges with the tasteless beef and tiny sprinkling of cheese making a pretty mediocre... More

The food is fresh, delicious and the price is right. The work colleagues and I go in almost everyday for lunch beacuse of the $10.00 lunch special. Tacos and awesome!! The salad is so fresh.

We had a craving for Mexican food after watching a movie and thought that this should offer a great choice of meals. I really wanted a plate of Nachos and had a mental picture in my head of what it would look like and I was totally disappointed. I was expecting the traditional Nachos made with Corn Chips (CC's) and... More

I have been to Mexico and lived in the US. In saying that I know my Mexican food. Montezumas was ok. Not as good as I was expecting but serving size was generous. We did wait quite some time for our food though.

Met family here last Friday night for dinner and will not be returning again. If you love a plate full of refrained beans that's pretty much every meal. Most plates were not even half touched because it was just refrained bean slop. Not one of our table of 8 had good comments about the meal when we left. So disappointed.... More

Better off cooking for yourself.. Even if it's a microwave hotdog.. At least you know what that tastes like.. To expensive for... More

I have previously reviewed Montezuma's in Bundaberg & this time I was certainly not disappointed with the Coolangatta franchise. The food is very high quality & generously sized with all the usual Mexican treats available. The staff are all friendly & well educated in terms of their menu knowledge. As well as the standard night menu they have a range... More

I went to montezumas with my mum and my son, and it was a fabulous meal! We had the $10 special lunch meals that were huge, tasty and the service was fabulous. Also liked the atmosphere. Whats not to like about a $10 mexican feast? Would have given a 4 and a half but felt generous. Reccomend the taquitos, they... More

Montezumas was always a favourite of mine but it just hasn't improved with time. There are a range of superior Mexican restaurants now and that's a shame for this once popular venue.
