“Amazing seafood at Monty's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We went to Monty's Brasserie on a Friday for lunch. We were particularly drawn to the Fixed Price menu which had Moules et Frites with a glass of wine for £9.50. To start we had Oysters to start which were amazing, we had to traditional and two rockafella. The Moules arrived and we were not dissapointed. I had the Thai moules and my friend had Moules Marinere, they were really really delicious, they were large, plump and full of flavour. The moules came from Cornwall and they are some of the best moules I have had. This was great value in an excellent setting with service to match. Highly recommended. The rest of the menu looked enticing and we cannot wait to go back and try some of the other options on the menu.

“Wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

As a birthday treat we get to leave the children with their grandparents and have a night out to ourselves. We usually look for a very nice hotel with a good restaurant. My wife selected Cheltenham for our night away and eventually selected The George Hotel and Monty's. It looked impressive, but as they say, the proof is in the eating...

The whole dining experience was excellent! The menu was excellent with several options all equally tempting. There was a large selection of seafood, which isn't my thing, but it sounded so good I was almost tempted.

The starters were fantastic. Whenever somewhere uses slates as plates you usually get quality without quantity, but at Monty's you got both. The main courses were equally superb with a surprising quantity. I have had food this good previously, but never in such portions. As you would expect, the wine list was also decent, though perhaps a top-notch Rioja could be added instead of just offering a crianza. And of course the desserts were also of a similar quality. All in all, a fantastic meal.

All the staff were very friendly and efficient and the dining room had a great atmosphere of people enjoying themselves. We could talk to each other without needing to whisper.

This really was a fantastic meal in a great restaurant. I have no qualms in awarding 5 stars and would recommend Monty's to anyone visiting Cheltenham.

And the breakfast next morning was also great.

“Always a safe bet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Lovely atmoshphere and frendly staff. Have eaten here on numerous occcasions and have never been disappointed. The Moules frite & wine deal is an excellent lunch special at just £9ish. I have also eaten in their private dinning room, there was about 20 of us and it was £30 a head, a good choice and in my opinion good value.

“Best staff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

The food here I found a tad expensive, however the steak and tiger prawns was delicous and probably worth it. Good menu with something for everyone and a little different too. The main focus for this review has to be the staff - they were really polite, friendly and attentive, the best Customer Service I have received in a very long time in a restaurant. You were really made to feel like a special CUSTOMER, rather than the pub/restaurant doing you a favour for letting you in eat in their establishment which can happen so often these days. 5 Star awards to the lads working on Sun eve on the 23rd Sept.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Had a lovely meal Sunday night, food was excellent, staff knowledgeable and friendly, everything was spot on. I couldn't decide between two main dishes so the waiter recommended the fish curry which was superb. I would recommend this restuarant to anyone who loves fish and fine food.
