Have a variety of many restaurants with excellent food. little inns looked liked the year 1780's all over again. The bars are conveniently place all over the casino, for a pit stop of a refill. The prices are friendly as well as the people. Would go back to relax there and shop anytime :)

This casino has everything for everyone. Tons of restaurants offering different cuisines, massages, light shopping and even psychic readings! There is also entertainment for the kids at the movies or at the magic company arcade. Bird averies and also a hot air balloon.

This complex is a must visit if just only to sight see. It is pretty huge and reminds me of the Bellagio & Ceasar's Palace rolled into one huge mini city. There are several restaurants and of course gambling. There are soooo many restaurants choose from and cater to any taste or style of dining you may have at the moment from upscale to sports bars. Families, groups, couples, all can find something here. Be careful not to openly take pictures of the casino area as I did. If caught security will come along and make you delete them. You can always make sure the flash is off and discreetly go for it as I see another reviewer has posted a pic.LOL!

Unfortunately one can't review just one part of the Montecasino complex. The whole thing runs the gamut from (to my taste) ugly gambling to tacky decor to lots of restaurants and a nice cinema complex. Our family (3 generations, 10-months and above) certainly spent a nice day there today. But the big hit is the bird garden - worth a special trip if you're in the Johannesburg area. That's what I'm giving five stars to. It's world class, much better than I would expect at a casino/entertainment complex. You can easily spend a couple of hours wandering through the surprisingly large grounds of the bird garden. And be sure to catch the live bird show (currently running at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, with 1:00 pm shows on some days). Excellent!

All ratings in this review are for the bird garden only.

Nice restaurant and activities for the kids.

If you're not a gambler it does get a bit boring after a bit.
