Great food in cosy surrounds

Had a great meal with friends here. Battered oysters for Entree and pork belly for mains. Disappointed with the Panna Cotta- deconstructed but unpleasant. Waitress was very pleasant.

If you enjoy five star without the pretension Monty's is for you. Great relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and awesome food. I can't recommend it highly enough. Find someone you look and take them to Monty's.

One expects small servings in a restaurant using French techniques and references. However, the size of the serves and the fairly standard menu choices coupled with high prices was disappointing. For French 'fine food', as apposed to 'home style', Monty's is not up to the mark. It's dishes seem dated to the late 1980's as does the interior. In other... More

Monty's provided us with a cosy and private atmosphere. Our waitress was attentive, without being intrusive. The meals were timely, their flavours balanced and their presentation, beautiful. The selection of beverages were eclectic, yet offered the comforts of close to home wineries and breweries. In summary, Monty's offered a delightful, charming evening, leaving us itching for a second visit.

After reading all the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to have a celebration meal at Monty's and it was hard to see we were in the same restaurant as the previous reviews. Overall, we left disappointed and at best "Ho hum". Lets start with the positives: Entrees were superb, unfortunately that was about it. Negatives: -we were cold throughout... More

We booked a table for 5 on Tue night so it was no busy. We sat near the fireplace and that was quite nice. Huon ocean trout is so nicely cooked and melt in your month, well seasoned. Cauliflower soup with mussel is also a nice dish. We ordered lamb, chicken and beef. We all loved it and enjoyed it... More

Nice food and service. I didn't feel there was much atmosphere for an up market restaurant! They had just run out of Bacardi! So that was disappointing!

We liked the fact the restaurant was lively and packed on a Saturday night. The food was lovely and we particularly liked the starters and desert! Wine was good and we indulged in a few glasses. It was generally a very fun and relaxed evening and we enjoyed the company of the waiter.

My daughter took me to Monty's for my 50th birthday dinner. The ambience, service and particularly the food was amazing. The kale chips were perfect, the smoked tofu was incredible. The presentation of the food was really good as well. Absolutely loved the whole evening.

We went to Monty's Saturday night for a lovely relaxing night of wine and food with good friends and we were not disappointed. Monty's is a lovely old house which has been restored perfectly giving it lots of charm and character. It is also very cosy with the fire places roaring. There is a great wine list with a good...
