Monty's is a very good tapas restaurant in Hesperler. Decor and atmosphere is great. Service was good but not extraordinary. Food was tasty, of good quality but presentation would not be to a foodie's expectations. Menu could have been more dynamic at the restaurant's price point. Would I return? Likely yes, but I can think of at least one other... More

Monty's is a quaint tapas bar in a wonderful old stone building. The *feed me* option is a great choice. A reasonable set price for the whole meal, and they just keep the food coming at the right pace . Although in a small town, it has a large city feel. We have never been disappointed.

Based on the great reviews and the "buzz" around town, we were suprised that we could get a last minute reservation at 7:30pm on a Friday night. When we got there, only 2 tables were occupied, which threw us a bit. It was not exactly the atmosphere we had anticipated! They have done a great job in showcasing the historical... More

I had high hopes after reading all of the great reviews and had never had tapas before, so I was looking forward to trying it. My friend and I decided to try the snacking menu with dessert ($26 per person, so $52 for the 2 of us) which involves the chef making all of the selections. The first 3 courses... More

I started working in the town of Hespeler over a year ago and wanted to try dinner at Monty's but couldn't find someone willing to go. Finally found a friend to join me the other night and we were both disappointed. Service was not great for the prices they were charging. Quantity was small for the price and quality was... More

Hespeler does not have a downtown that attracts crowds, but this restaurant makes the trip to Queen street worth it. Tapas are their specialty and they do it well. Each little plate that came out was tasty and left you wanting more. It is a little pricey, but the food is worth it.

I'm a Hespelerite and I continue to frequent Montys Tapas Wine Bar. I went to one of their recent live music Sundays and it was a FANTASTIC experience. The musician was great, the truffle fries and spicy broccoli were delicious, and it looks like they continue to bring out new versions of their tapas and wine menus. I have eaten... More

I'm not a huge fan of typical bars so when Monty's opened up in Hespeler I was floored. It's so classy and the staff are fun and so accommodating without compromising the feel they want for their business. The prices are higher than most people in their early twenties would usually want to pay but that was a bonus to... More

A girlfriend and I went for dinner a couple nights back and had a blast! Both of us have experience in the industry and were impressed with the food, the service and the price. We are both fresh out of school and don't have the most money in the world to spend on a night out. We got the light... More

Soup was ok. Then it turned into a slop fest. As a foodie will never return. What happened to monty's??? Had great experience there ! Did it go to your head??? Get a new chef. Horrible.
