It seems that few people actually choose to go to the Montecristo Café; they end up there because it looks OK and they haven't been able to find anything better in the area. So should you succumb?
Well, reports on the web make it sound like a tourist trap where higher-than-average prices are to be paid for lower-than-average food. The service? Long, apparently. The music? No longer Latino but a mix of FM dance music. The food? The usual pizza and pasta.
Perhaps you deserve better than this? Check with the reception desk at your hotel for a host of more interesting and satisfying alternatives. And if you absolutely must go, try the outside terrace during the day. Definitely entertaining for people watching.
(By the way, they don't even seem to have a website. This is not a good sign.)
