Food is fantastic! The resteraunt is spotless, staff go above and beyond to ensure your dining experience is perfect and memorable. Quiet music in the background helped to sooth and relax after a tough day at work. The decor is beyond beautiful. It is my favorite spot to go in Cambridge.

I went to Monty's with my mom on a Wednesday evening. The food was absolutely fantastic with a great variety that would please any tastes. It was very flavourful and the food was made with care. The service was excellent. Ambiance was very nice and the music really added to the relaxed feeling of the restaurant. Try the fig balsamic... More

An avid reader of TripAdvisor reviews I feel totally duped on this one. People - really? .... Who starts a "tasting"menu with cold garlic soup and garlic bread. There can be no tasting after that. On the evening we were there the Chef's "tasting" menu went from bad to worse. Following the garlic soup was a tasteless Spanish tortia (omelette)... More

I have been to Monty's several times, and it is always a great experience without fail. Everyone there is absolutely amazing!!! They will keep you coming back. I have tried most things on the menu and would recommended every single one!!! But if you want the authentic Monty's experience go for the tasting, the chef will design a custom meal... More

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.
