“Laid back cafe in good location”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

This is an ok place on the Barbican. They have a reasonable range and a laid back atmosphere. It is fine for somewhere informal to eat.

“Lots of choice and great, friendly service,”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Monty's is a nice little cafe situated in the heart of Plymouth's historic Barbican. The staff are always extremely helpful and there is loads of choice on the menu. I tend to pick off the specials board but the main menu is equally good. It's not cordon bleu just simple home-cooked food. A perfect choice for breakfast or lunch.

“OK but routine burgers.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Nothing special. Prime Barbican site but decor and style out of character. Dozens of other places within very short distance. Would suit pensioners or families with young children. Needs photographs of inside and out so you can get the feel - which is fairly bland.

“All round good grub”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Went to Plymouth to see family, including 1 wk old baby so wanted somewhere friendly, good value and good food. Between the 4 of us we had 2 x burgers which were great, 1 x spicy chicken nachos which looked like they had a decent amount of cheese and weren't burnt or the remnants of the bottom of a bag, one large breakfast (which wasn't large and had no beans but hey ho!) and poached egg on toast. All were very tasty, cooked properly and inexpensive. This place is very popular with older folk and mums and gets very busy so book or go for early / late lunch. There were no tables available by 12:15! This I reckon says more about the cafe than my review.

“Always the best!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went to Monty's for lunch today with our little girl of 16 months-I have been going there for quite a long time now after a friend introduced me to the place and for that alone I love her! I must say that every single time has been a pleasure. It is a family friendly cafe and coffee shop, the menu is varied and the staff are always pleasant and very accommodating when catering for the little ones! My only problem when I go is deciding what to choose as I have always enjoyed every meal I have had, both from the regular menu and the specials board! Thanks Monty's and looking forward to next time already!
