Came for dinner on a Monday night. Restaurant was pretty busy and lively which was nice. Food was okay. Plenty on vegetarian and vegan options too. Friendly staff.

Food is seriously ordinary (presentation of the enchilada was woeful) and the restaurant needs a makeover. Looks like a setting for an 80s teen movie. Service is indifferent and it's obvious casual kids are running front of house. It was a cheap night out but I won't be back. Too many competing options.

We took our table and placed and placed an order after eventually getting the attention of one of the waiting staff. It was a Saturday night so I expected it to be busy, but the place was half empty, and we were sitting close by their main pay area, so I've no idea why they were so inattentive - certainly... More

My husband and I enjoyed eating at Montezuma's many times before we had children, but this was our first visit as a family. We were pleased that our old favourites were still available and tasted just as we remembered them. The make your own burrito option was perfect for our two year old who can be fussy. Overall a yummy... More

The food was very very disapointing, I had the chicken mole, which was completely dry and flavour less :( my partners food was okay so we shared that instead.

Don't bother. Make your own out of a packet at home it will be quicker, and taste better. The best thing here was the salad. The rest was forgettable. The Sangria tatsted like it is a watered down version of premixed Sangrias bought in bottles. All in all you can do better with a trip to the supermarket and bottle... More

Lived here for 12 yrs. This place has always been on the must do list. How very diappointed we are. Worste chillie ever. Soupy stew on rice. Asked for it very spicy hot. You could have fed it to a baby. Done it. Wont be going back.

Having lived in the U.S for 20 plus years and eaten "Tex Mex" food all over the south west United States and Mexico I believe I know what good Mexican food should be. The food served at Montezumas in Glenelg was by far the worst experience I've come across. They advertise "authentic Mexican food".....but their offerings are cheap and disgusting... More

Have been here twice, both times terrible. We literally live around the corner and will never waste another dollar in this venue. Overpriced (for what you receive) and the worst customer service that I have experienced in Adelaide (or possibly the world) First time, the restaurant was very quiet and it was about 8pm, the staff were quite reluctant to...

We waited ages to be served and when our meals arrived they were extremely disappointing. My husband ordered an old traditional dish apparently which was half a chicken with rice. The chicken was extremely dry with no flavor I ordered Montezuma's Delight which was meant to be chicken with salad. The chicken was almost non existent and absolutely no flavor.... More
