“Chef had gone shopping”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Whilst having breakfast at Monty's bar, the owner Les came and sat near us and told us about his wife who was the chef and was trained in a 5star hotel in Australia, he told us about the "specials" that would be available later that day, he sold it to us so well we decided to give it a try.
When we went back later, we ordered our meals but after 15mins the barman told us the chef had gone shopping but he had rang her and she would be back soon. Not very impressed, we sat with our drinks deciding where to go next, felt sorry for the barman who was obviously embarrased, we were there 45mins and no Chef appeared, so we walked out. The next day we saw the "Chef " working in a little supermarket opposite Monty's bar ! Needless to say we didn't go back in there again, totally unprofessional, probably why the bar was empty most of the time. There are some very good bars and restaurants in Montemar so if like me you value your holiday time- give this one a miss.
