The food is outstanding I dine here with my wife regularly. It's our favourite place in town for a meal. Although small premises it has a romantic atmosphere ideal for anniversary meal or special occasions. Can't recommend this place enough

Me and my girlfriend were rather peckish and so we decided to go to montanaros. Having been before in the past for a christmas meal and was really impressed I was really pleased to re visit and see how it was a few years later. Mantanaros is situated in swadlincote town centre, and used to be a small cafe now... More

Had an evening meal with a friend and it was DELICIOUS! Leena (owner, chef, waitress, barperson etc) is friendly and bends over backwards to accomodate what you would like. Everything is cooked there and then fresh, hot and delicious. So if you have particular needs/wishes...just ask! It isn't a fulltime restaurant so check time/days. But worth a visit.

Think the lady said they open Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday nights only. And booking is essential as its only small. The fact it's small only adds to the more personal and... More
