Came in this past Saturday afternoon around two. Probably three other tables seated in the entire place. Took a while to be acknowledged and service was slow. Loved my drink and thought the veggie empanadas and stuffed jalapenos were fantastic. What bothered me was the service- slow, cold, and non-existent. Had to get up and pay at the bar. Such... More

First off, I'm not a fan of rum. This place changed my mind. Within our group. I was able to experience over 6 cocktails (trying others not all to myself). I do wish I could remember the spicy concoctions name on the martini menu, but that drink is so memorable I'm writing for the recipe. Delicious!! The tapas, if you... More

Although the drinks were amazing, my biggest compliment is the food! We had the empanadas, spinach and shiitake mushroom dip, bacon wrapped jalapeños, baked brie, seared scallops, and crab tostadas. Literally everything we ordered was amazing and super filling! Our favorites were the bacon wrapped jalapeños and the spinach and shiitake dip. The service was great and the drinks strong.... More

This was stop #2 on date night with hubby. Every drink here alcoholic is rum, should be obvious right? The Mojito was outstanding. Will go back next year.

Limited dining options but unique combinations and very good. The rum is good but the drinks made with it are expensive and pretty weak. The service is either friendly or perfunctory depending on who's working. In general though, it's a lively place to go.

Great cocktails, service (even when packed) and snacks! Highly recommend! The street food was impressive, I loved the empanadas. We will definitely go back on our next trip!

Went for dessert, drinks, and live Jazz. Had a really nice time. Our drinks were very good. The free tasting was quite generous, our waiter was exceptional, and the band was excellent. The desserts were just ok. We had the apple pie which was very tasty, but the ice cream had almost entirely melted by the time we got it.... More

My wife and I went twice, with two different results. The first time, we enjoyed two of he best drinks ever, with a very friendly wait staff. The second time, we felt like we were in the way or something, and the drinks were very average. I'm thinking it was just an off night, and we will be back.

Montanya distills their own rum, and serves a very large variety of rum drinks to make use of it. They don't offer much in the way of food, just a few small bites/appetizers, which were ok tasting, but pricey. Service was slow, but each drink is pretty labor intensive, with muddled items and fresh fruits, etc. There was live music... More

We visited Montanya twice during our weekend visit to CB! My husband loved their Gold Rum (I believe it was the Oro) and I had the Watermelon Agua Fresco since I am pregnant (it was so refreshing!). There was live music on Saturday night, which was very good. Highly recommend this place for couples looking to enjoy a nice drink... More
