If you are into 'deep fried' or 'covered in a cream sauce' then this is your place. The fish is so lovely and fresh it is a pity it can't be prepared in a more modern manner to show off its freshness. The outdoor area is oddly hot. We were wondering if the sail cover absorbs the sunlight. We had... More

We anchored off the resort on Cup day and even though they had a function on, we were still welcomed and enjoyed a beautiful lunch. Service was friendly and very good, in particular one charming waitress who won my heart with the smile in her eyes.

Montes Reef resort is tucked away in Hideaway Bay, a tiny resort of some canons, however, the open air restaurant is superb, so good that people flew in on a helicopter just to eat. The view is certainly 'one to die for'. A mere 45 minutes out of Airlie and a must to do on a great weather day

Best to book for lunch. Always good food and atmosphere. Great view while you are eating and nice beach to have a lazy stroll along the sand. I enjoy watching boats pull in for lunch here. Staff are friendly too.

Amazing lunch and spectacular view. We were really amazed at how beautiful the lunch was, we day tripped from Airlie with the kids and another family. The staff deserve a huge thank you as our youngest daughter forgot her swimsuit and they overheard us and brought over a stinger suit so she could swim. We were so grateful and really... More

Beautiful little hidden away gem. I'm happy to keep it on the quiet because it would be terrible if I couldn't get a booking next time! Restaurant / Bar is lovely right on the beach. Blue winged kookaburras sit right next to you at lunch. The sunset is AMAZING, we had a walk along the beach and looked out about... More

Our family of four finally managed to book this piece of paradise - for our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed at all! The weather was perfect - this time of year the kids could still swim in the ocean without the threat of jellyfish. My husband could moor our 5.4m fishing boat out 30m from our doorstep - enabling...

Terrible. items went mysteriously missing from the room and housekeeping refused to respond to me when we realised. Still waiting for items to be found and returned. I will never stay here again or recommend to my friends and family.

We stay here once a year in August and always have unit number 8 on the eastern side of the resort. Throughout the year the area in front of our unit has been renovated with lovely green lush grass, fencing, brick pavers, gardens and really beaut Bali type pergola out the front which houses a BBQ, cooking area, power points,...
