More about Montezuma's - Glenelg, Glenelg

When it comes to great Mexican food, Montezuma’s is a name you can count on. Something of a legend in much of Australia, this restaurant is known for its fresh, authentic offerings that feature traditional Mexican flavours with an Australian twist. The Glenelg restaurant is located on Partridge Street just moments from the beach and just a short walk away from two tram stops, making it an ideal spot to grab a bite to eat for folks heading to the beach from central Adelaide.

The menu at Montezuma’s in Glenelg is extensive and includes everything from margaritas and their own signature sangria blend to vegan tacos, chilli con carne and cheesy enchiladas. Making a decision can be a bit overwhelming at first, so we suggest to take one of the combination plates like the Vera Cruz which comes with a cheese enchilada, frijole burrito and a side of rice and salad. Children have an array of great options at Montezuma’s too, like the Amigo Burrito and Baby Bondigas (Mexican meatballs with tomato sauce and cheese). The desserts at Montezuma’s are also excellent, so be sure to take an order of the authentic Mexican fan or some churros with dipping sauce and ice cream. Make sure to reserve a table ahead to avoid disappointment at this Adelaide legend.

My son had his birthday party at Montezuma's Glenelg last night. We all enjoyed the food and atmosphere - all seven of us. Personally, being a plant based eater - I thought my vegan meal looked the best. The Montezuma's special... om nom nom.

The food was good and the service was ok. The staff were helpful and friendly. Not many people there and it is a big place so at times we felt ignored as staff seemed to ‘disappear’ into the back of the restaurant. Maybe filling takeaway orders? The six of us enjoyed the meals we had although they did seem quite pricey for what they were. We had some vouchers which reduced the cost considerably.

A chair at the end of the booth does not give enough leg room for either the people at the end of the booth or the one in the chair. The booking was made ages ago and should have had priority to a bigger table. Food was great as always.

The location was great, being so close to the GU Film House made it an obvious choice. The service was friendly, prompt and they happily accommodated a change to the meal on the menu. The food was delicious and reasonably priced.

First time using online booking for a restaurant and was thrilled at how smoothly it worked. Montezumas at Glenelg is in a great location, plenty of free and cheap undercover parking. Can't say enough about the food and service, both exvellent

We just love it at the Glenelg Montezuma's. We were there last night for a combined birthday/anniversary dinner. At the end, we leaned (slightly!) over the serving counter and thanked the 2 cooks. Delicious meal ! - susan
