Spent way too much money to have 3 meals delivered via UberEats. Terrible. Food was oily, meat was dry - looked like food you wouldn't feed your pets!

Recently visited with my family in a slow Saturday afternoon. My daughter and I had the chicken enchiladas. My husband had the montezuma's special. The food was ok but was very mild. Also the special had a lot of veggies like broccoli and califlower which is not usually found in Latin American food. The service was very good and the... More

Montezuma's is a great family place, with heaps of food at moderate prices. Yes, the service is a little slow and the food is not top quality, but order a carafe of Margherita and you won't care. Very filling with beans and rice on most dishes, and not smothered with cheese like a lot of Mexican food. Would recommend.

A great atmosphere and traditional Mexican food in the middle of Crows Nest. Have been back here a few times and will go again.

Food was absolutely terrible. Service slow. Not even worthy of a proper review. Avoid at all costs and go to the Mexican around the corner on Pacific Highway.

I ordered takeaway, tacos & taquitos. It was like they were straight out of an old El Paso starter kit. It's a shame because when I picked them up I thought what a great atmosphere, and next time we'll eat in. But the food was terrible, not very traditional Mexican. Perhaps the other dishes are better. It'd be a good... More

When you walk into Montezuma's it is a good start. The atmosphere is nice and the seating is spacious which I like. They have a nice set up with the bar and the booths as well. The staff are nice and friendly but both times I have been there the service was very slow mainly because they seem to be... More

We went there with a group of 8 for a birthday dinner on a Thursday night. The wait staff are not properly trained and seem to be running around in circles. The restaurant feels very disconnected with some staff not taking drink orders and other staff telling you to go to the bar to order drinks. We had to order... More
