Food and wine of a high standard with good service. Expensive but worth a visit. I would rank this restaurant one of the three best vineyard eateries

“Montalto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Great food, great location, great atmosphere and outlook. Food was amazing and all set within a contemporary architecturally designed restaurant and cellar bar.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Montalto was a truly magical place to visit, we had been driving for a few hours around the Mornington area when we stopped by here for lunch. The fact that we weren't dressed to the nines didn't seem to result in substandard service by the staff which is always appreciated. The service was attentive but not intrusive.

The food was amazing, the amuse bouche was light and helped to set us at ease and for mains we had the roast duck and it was perfectly cooked. Eating lunch overlooking the vineyards made for such a pretty picture and after lunch going for a walk in their vineyards and admiring the sculptures they had on display helped to round off a beautiful afternoon.
Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!

“An absolute must visit for food, wine, service and the ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

From the moment you entered this establishment you felt you had arrived in a special place. the vista from the restaurant over the vineyards is gorgeous, the menus were freshly printed for that day, so the produce was also seasonally fresh, the wait staff were exceptional and very professional with appropriate humour. the meal was stunning as were the wines we selected. I would go back there and take friends and will also recommend as a must visit place.

“Great wine great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

The wines are of great quality as is the oil. The Piazza Cafe is good for a light meal, but why is the wine much more expensive to drink than at the cellar door which is a few steps away? Love the views & walks too. Well worth a visit.
