Ate here on a Thursday night with friends. Booking essential as this place is small but busy. Limited menu but good food. Didn't have a starter as we did not see anything we liked, but had some bread while waiting on mains. Drink was a bit expensive. Don't get me wrong food was really good.

I dined here with 5 of my friends on a week night. The menu is vast and varied and there seems to be something to cater for all. I had the lamb which was mouthwateringly good and the mashed potatoes were to die for. The presentation was beautiful and the quantity was plentiful. They have a specials menu and plenty of wines etc on offer and ample staff to deal with this quaint little bistro. The staff were all well presented and warm and friendly and the decor is very suited to a bistro style establishment. I did feel that £16.50 was rather steep for a plate of lamb and tatties not forgetting the carrots and therefor would only dine here again on a very special occassion.

We dropped in for lunch recently and enjoyed a great bowl of soup along with the splendid rosemary bread. As ever staff were on the ball, friendly and polite. A great place to have something to eat, you shouldn't be disappointed.

We visited Monty's as a group of six recently. The service and food were really great. The homemade soup was excellent and the Rib Eye steak and chips were cooked to perfection and full of flavour, one of the best I have eaten in a long time.

Others in the party had the Lamb Shoulder - excellent, as was the seafood pie. Its a very realxed restaurant and well worth visiting.

this is, as far as we could find, the only 'proper' restaurant in Lerwick. It is a real find with good food, fine local beers, lovely staff and a casual vibe.
