We love the mamas prawns, they served piled high on a platter in a delicious sauce. this Beira alta sauce is a lot spicier than Ballito branch so watch out when ordering your prawns spicy hot, go for mild rather and up the heat yourself with some sauce on the side. Service is good and their chef palo salad very tasty. Trinchado good too, if you can request a booth its a lot more comfy than normal tables.

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

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.
