Montezuma’s revenge is never a good thing – as anyone who has travelled as far as Mexico will know – but at Montezuma’s in North Adelaide, you need not worry about that. They offer only the best in Mexican cuisine to the hungry public of South Australia, with a menu that is packed with well-known dishes such as enchiladas, burritos and chili tacos as well as less-spotted specialities such as tamale pie, mole poblano and albondigas meatballs. Book a table now for you and your mates and take a trip out to Melbourne Street in North Adelaide to pay Montezuma a visit.
Adelaide is a long way from Acapulco to say the least – nobody really goes loco down here in South Australia, no matter how long you hang around – but at Montezuma’s on Melbourne Street in North Adelaide, you can get a taste of life south of the border, down Mexico way. Their food takes in all the classics of the genre, with all the favourites that one might hope to see on a Mexican menu. That means tostadas and nachos to start, quesadillas, tacos and burritos with plenty of filling to follow and churros to finish.
Of course, with Mexican food, the quesadillas et al are only part of the story – the delivery method, if you will. The fillings are equally important, and at Montezuma’s, they have your favourites. Fill your burrito with veggie-friendly frijoles, or meaty shredded beef and chicken, as well as rice, beans, salads and a huge range of salsa options. Throw into the mix the Montezuma range of cocktails, sangria, Mexican beers and local Aussie wines. Reserve yourself a table on Melbourne Street for an authentic taste of Mexico in Adelaide.
It was my first time there, the food and service was amazing. I will definitely be going back and recommend it to my friends and family
Great atmosphere, excellent service and wonderful food as usual guys, we really do enjoy coming and can't want to come again soon. The chilli is just right and the enchiladas are awesome.
Have loved dining at Montezuma's restaurant in North Adelaide for three decades. Fabulous food, delicious drinks, great atmosphere and wonderful service. Great value for money.
Always fast service. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Meals are huge. Big fan of the lemon frozen margaritas. Will gladly go back another time.
Great service. The lady who showed us to our table and who we paid at the end was a happy, friendly and very helpful person. Bar service also great, nothing was too hard. Great food. I have been there many times and loved the food as per usual. Great decorations and design. I do think though that more selections are needed on the wine list, particularly with the whites and the bubbly. Maybe a little quiet background Mexican style music would add to the overall package?
Food amazing, as always. Always flexible with adjustments to menu items to cater for personal tastes. Service is excellent with friendly staff. Spoilt with choice for vegetarian/vegan options. Love that kids are provided with their own menu/activity booklet - every time they look forward to working on all of the fun activities in the booklet. Only downside is the tight fit of seating for 8 people on 1 table, and had a table of 10 squeezed in behind us, but certainly wouldn't stop us from continuing to go there for a great, atmospheric experience and delicious food.
We had a wonderful lunch. Our son with autism was treated like a rock-star and was allowed to take home the Sombrero hat that he wore whilst eating his lunch. We were really impressed with the extensive vegetarian/vegan menu, as well as the kids' menu and activities sheet. The atmosphere was great and the prices were more than reasonable - we'll be sure to return soon :-)
I always love the food here and the service has really improved since when I first started going a couple of years ago. The cheese dip / queso fundido is to die for. I did deduct one point this time because the usually delicious non-alcoholic sangria didn't taste as good, seemed like it was made a bit differently and was too lemon-y.
Right up to its normal high standard. My wife and I both had our tasty favourite, Arizona: chicken enchilada, Spanish rice, crisp lemony salad. Plenty of it. Only complaint: we could not also have the many other enticing dishes on the menu, Friendly service. Full marks!
The booking process via Quandoo was great. The food tasted great and was reasonably priced. I was charged a 10% public holiday fee because it was nye which was never mentioned, just added to my bill. One of the wait staff was great. The other was not a people person and the manager wasn’t much better. Could have been because if the face it was nye but still...
