“Great Food, Service and nice setting”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We arrived there this past Friday just at 6pm when they started serving dinner. Took cab over from hotel and cabbie walked in restaurant with us and the restaurant paid him. Owner of restaurant drove us back to hotel after dinner. My son and I ordered the coconut chicken and veggies. Husband ordered pasta with blackened chicken in an alfredo sauce. All meals came with garden salad and garlic bread. None of their entrees were over $28, so if you are on a budget and looking for a good meal and a "free" ride over the bridge from Paradise Island, look no further - Montagu Gardens fits the bill. The waiters there were all prompt and professional. I usually don't order dessert, but I refused to come home without trying the Guava Duff....OMG...was it good!!! A soft textured cake with a warm sauce poured over it with bits of guava in it....makes my mouth water just describing it...lol....Go to Montagu Gardens before you leave Nassau/Paradise Island, you will be happy you did....

“Would never return”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

The restaurant was clearly understaffed in the front of house. There appeared to be only two servers for a crowded dining space, and as a result we hardly saw our server. I ordered a basic burger which was decent. However, other members of my party who ordered more complicated dishes all complained. My brother did not receive his food for nearly 30 min after the rest. Our table was being bussed and he still had not eaten, and our server was not there to remedy the situation. When we finally did flag him down, he told us that it took so long because my brother wanted penne pasta instead of spaghetti.

The atmosphere was nice. The restaurant is in an old Bahamian mansion that is beautiful but frayed around the edges.

“Reasonable”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Prices are very reasonable, the food was a little above average, and the service was excellent! Ask for Gwen, my family owns time sharing and have remained friends with her for 23 years and she will steer you to a good meal.

“Perfect Introduction to Nassau”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Many first-rate Nassau restaurants are closed Mondays. Montagu Gardens is open. Many first-rate Nassau restaurants let you arrive by taxi. Montagu Gardens provides shuttle service. Hence, this was our #1 choice when we arrived in Nassau last Monday.

The service lived up to the Bahamas well-deserved reputation for excellence. The bartender, a 50-year veteran, came to our table to make certain that the Perfect Manhattans we had ordered were perfect. His special twist was to substitute a twist of lime for the cherry, and he wanted to know our reaction. Chefs and owners visit your table to monitor quality. At Montagu Gardens so does the bartender.

The conch chowder and guava duff were excellent. Grilled Bahamian grouper and grouper fillet baked in white wine with capers (substituted for out of stock snapper fillet) were both too salty. Prices were very reasonable.

“Great food!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I ordered the seafood pasta and was very satisfied. Portions were big and prices were fair considering how nice and quite the atmosphere was. My friend had motion sickness from a daytime boat ride, and they were very helpful in getting us a quick ride home for her. Staff was very nice!
