We did not eat here because I read the reviews in advance, but we did stop in for drinks several times during our stay in Montezuma. The view is spectacular and the location next to the bay is awesome. We enjoyed ourselves at the bar each time we stopped in. Just DO NOT swim in the bay. I found this article while researching Montezuma. And sure enough we did not see any locals swimming in the bay. Only fair skinned tourists.
Article: Montezuma’s small bay can be polluted. Some of the houses and businesses in town dump their sewage right into the small stream that runs into the bay. During rainy season, septic tanks overflow or stop working well when the ground is saturated, adding to the mess. You’ll see people swimming and even fishing here, but I really don’t recommend it. This is Montezuma’s dirty little secret… the prettiest beach in the center of town can be dangerous, and you will rarely, if ever, see any foreigner who lives in Montezuma swimming there, because we all know what’s up. Why is this happening? Don’t ask… we’ve been asking for years, but unfortunately the government hasn’t done anything about it. If you want to swim or fish, go to the beach on the other side of town, or walk down to playa las manchas, 20 minutes to the south.
