Have been in several times for lunch and never disappointed. Bar and table seating and a large 'back area' that tends to be less noisy. Kind of homey with a fireplace, stained glass and bookshelves- with books! The menu is loaded with favorites which ways fill the plate. Great seafood chowder - creamy and chunky. The softest potato cube fries, excellent yam fries. Eggs Benny loaded with smoked salmon.dessert s are to die for - wish I could say the same for the coffee.
Wheelchair accessible. Assistance would be needed to get into the washroom but once inside, space and sinks were manageable.
Parking can be tight so be sure to arrive before the lunch crowd. Lots of tabs for sports viewing.

Monkey Tree is a popular neighbourhood place and the waitresses seem to know most of the regulars. Service is very good; fast and efficient as well as friendly. We had Monkey Burgers which were very tasty; did not taste like a reheated frozen patty and they were dressed with nice juicy fresh tomatoes and red onions and the lettuce was nice and green. Fries were good and plentiful and the house wine was served nicely in a little carafe with wine glass filled at the table and it was a good wine. We would definitely go back.

The Monkey Tree is a pretty typical Victoria pub. The beer is always served fast and cold! There's a daily special on both food and beer. The food is generally pretty good: wings are great! A regular clientele frequent this pub and the service is fast and efficient. Though it can get pretty noisy and busy, there is a room at the back of the pub where things are usually quieter if that's what one wants.
