I went here a number of times when staying in Queenstown. Good wine, beers and service. The food was good too. Live music was fab.

Nice place. 5 of us all tried something different for the main meal and everyone was very happy with the choices. The teriyaki salmon was really nice. Prices are very reasonable. Very busy when we went which added to the ambience. Downside - waitress didn't seem to be paying attention and sure enough got the drinks order wrong. Apologised profusely... More

After living in Queenstown for 2 years, Montys has always been a strong favourite for a good value lunch. Staff are consistently attentive and friendly and food is tasty. Variety of beers on offer is also great. Get the chicken filo, it's epic.

I was looking for somewhere warm & friendly to get a vegetarian (ideally vegan) meal for dinner and Monty's attracted me. It had an open fire, friendly staff and the bean enchilada I ordered was tasty and good value. Would be more fun in a group, I'm sure!

One of the best atmospheres in Queenstown. Great place to kick back in the warmth by the huge open fire with good range of beers plus not too load so we could actually talk to one another, plus real friendly bar staff, Certainly a great bar.

Came here and had the steak sandwich with chips. Exactly what I felt like. Yum! Well done pub food. The service though was awesome, very attentive, friendly staff. I have worked in hospo a long time and I couldnt fault the staff. Great work guys.

Me and my girlfriend went for lunch there after hearing positive things, and I have to say they were correct. The food was tasty and well priced, and the young lady who served us (I think her name was Ellie) was very pleasant and accommodating. I would not hesitate in recommending this place to friends.
