Whilst the menu was not bad there was not much choice if you are a vegetarian like my husband, however we managed to find something to eat and was pleasantly surprised, food tasted really nice good portion size, and good value for money. However if you want somewhere that does not play loud music this place is not for you.

I cannot comment on the beers here, as I only had water, but the food was really good. I had the beer-battered fish and chips, which were quite tasty. A friend mentioned that in New Zealand you must try Sticky Toffee Pudding, and fortunately they had it here. I cannot stress this enough: YOU MUST TRY THE STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING!... More

with so many options in town you can throw a dart to choose a restaurant, but we were glad we picked Montys. Good vibe inside , and the meals were fantastic. May well have been the best garlic bread we have ever encountered.

They have specials each day which are really good. Live music, $3.50 drinks, and meal specials make it a great place to start out your night. Don't be surprised if you get stuck there though.

Awesome haunt with great food late at night - nice little outdoor area with heaters and blankets to keep you warm during the freezing cold nights.

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.
