This is an adventure in dining! If you can't decide when you look at menus this is for you!

Monty's is a quaint, quirky little place we don't go to often, but when we do, we always enjoy the unique menu and quiet ambiance and as a result, have referred many friends. Well, after last evening, we won't likely go back until they figure out their "niche" again. We were so disappointed to find they have changed their wonderful... More

This little local joint on Queen st offers delicous tapas style food. Amazing spicy duck wings cauliflower fritters and smoked bacon scallops. Enjoy some great live acoustic music while you dine.

The night was enjoyable and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The selection, however, was limited and much smaller than a few months ago. The table sizes did not accommodate the plates and therefore, felt very crowded. The wine selection was ok, but "per glass" was almost non existent and therefore had to pay for full bottle when only a... More

I went there with a friend and ordered the Full Monty. It was 7 courses of tapas including dessert. They asked a few questions about our likes and dislikes and then started bringing out the food. The food was amazing, we both loved it. Make sure you have plenty of time to spend there though as we were there for... More

Went this last week with my girls from work, they had a live music that was nice in the back ground. The pizza was out of this world, felt like we were in Europe some where. Thin crust. We shared three of them and had a couple tapas to share.

We loved the food and the very personal service! We ordered "The Full Monty" on the recommendation from a friend and would highly recommend it to others! It brought us on a blind tasting experience that will never be forgotten! The live music on the Wed. night provided by Jesse Parent added to the incredible experience, we cant wait to... More

Had already had supper at another local Hespeler restaurant, but stopped in for drink. Wanted to show my Husband where he can bring me for supper one night. He LOVED the atmosphere, décor, and just to tempt him, I ordered the seared scallops for my "dessert". DELICIOUS. He's ready to bring Friend's out now. They also offer live entertainment which...

I was brought by a date tonight and I was excited because I had heard about the restaurant a lot and had wanted to go for a while. We did the tasting menu which is a great value for all that you get. We were stuffed when we left. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere relaxed and inviting, and the... More
