My wife and I have been patron's of this restaurant for many years and have always thought well of the owners, but our experience of Tues 24th Sept, has now made us review our thoughts. When our order was taken, we where informed that it...would be at least a one hour wait as their were three other tables in front of us awaiting service, to this we replied it would not be an issue and we where prepared to wait, the time at this point was about 8.55pm, the times for the kitchen are displayed for all to view, as up to 11pm. At just after 10 15pm we where informed that the kitchen was now closed and our food order would not be completed, although the other three tables had now been served, apologies where forthcoming from the person given the task of informing us of the closer, leaving us without any alternative. So if your thinking of frequenting this establishment, make sure there are no other tables awaiting service, otherwise they may "SHUT SHOP" before they get to you, as with ourselves, or of course you can go elsewhere.More

Hi Rene here, After reading your review I felt exactly the same. Just before you came in I had an accident in the kitchen and blew my back out. I managed to get my last tickets out before I collapsed completely. Your ticket has never...More

This is a local bar for us and we really enjoy and early evening drink and a chat with Marlene, the owner. She has introduced a quiz night on alternate Thursdays and we went with friends last night and it was a great success. The...quiz is free to enter and there is a prize. Brian and Geoff who ran the quiz made it good fun and lighthearted. Look at their website for details. We didn’t eat on this occasion but others did. A good night out, thanks Marlene!More

My friend invited me to meet her at Montemare. The owner Marlene had a very bad attitude and was extremely rude to me, in my face, I hasten to add I did not deserve it and was very polite. I heard that this is quite...normal for her and that many locals boycott the restaurant due to her bad attitude! Such a unnecessary shame.More

My best friends house is a 5 minutes walk from the restaurant and she wanted to take me because her mum and my friend had been telling me about it during my visit to Spain. So I decided I wanted to try it. The service...we got was lovely and the food was amazing. Olives on the house to start were perfect. Nothing was too much for the female owner who Served us. My aim is to go there a lot more when I visit Spain the next time.More

We have visited this restaurant several times. From the start, you are welcomed with a glass of something fizzy and some specially marinated olives. Everything is home-made and the pasta dishes are particularly good. Would highly recommend a visit here.
