“Rude Manager, terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

If you're looking for an evening of bad, cold food, bad service and a terrible attitude, this is for you. Went for a lovely nite out at Monte. The recommended chicken came out cold. They nuked it the second time and refused to serve a fresh portion. When the Manager came to us, he was hald inebriated and refused to listen to our complaints. Was adamant we HAD to pay the full price. We left with utter disgust and dismay at his handling of the situation. Will never go back. Be warned

“Ola Requintado!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

I am very impressed with the level of cuisine and outstanding quality of the dishes. This was a romantic dinner for 2 that did not disappoint. In our case the Trinchado starter and prawns were gorgeously buttery with subtle balance of garlic, peri peri and paprika so signature to Portuguese cooking. The main courses are enormous and decadently rich, I highly recommend the pork belly and clams with chourizo. Calling my partner's main course a "mixed grill" is an unimaginitive understatement for delectable baby chicken, calamari tubes and chourizo. As much as I would have loved to try some dessert, there simply wasn't any room. Next time we'll add a bottle of Portuguese wine for better accompaniment, as the house red was unfortunately bland in light of such excellent food. Table service was perfect: ready at hand and friendly, anticipatory, but otherwise invisible. Thank you to our waiter, Robert.
