The restaurant itself is a little dated and certainly doesn't inspire from the outside but I recommend that you go in without hesitation. The food is excellent, espetadas in particular which come in a range of sizes and with a choice of sauces. The meat is simply wonderful, very tasty and so tender. We were only in the are for five days but visited here twice and it was by far the best of the bunch. If you can get over the look of the place you will savour your visit.

Order just about anything, but be sure to try their steaks. Absolutely fantastic... great quality, well done and equally well presented with the choice of your favourite side dish. Truly an experience worth going out of your way for. It makes me proud to be a resident of Sedgefield.

This is quite simply the only place to eat if you like enjoy good food rather than burgers and chips. The prices are reasonable and the service is good.
The place does not seem to have had a makeover since it was opened and has a sixties feel to it.
Note that booking, especially in the summer months, is highly recommended although it can get pretty busy at any time of year.

Upon arrival you may be put off by the modest and dated decor, but don't let that put you off this establishment has been doing for years and always has awesome food!

Montecello's is a family run business and is known for the best steak on the Garden Route.
They are also known for excellent seafood and schnitzels.

Montecello's is really busy during season and on weekends and you will require a reservation during these busy times to get a table.
The service can be slow at times and can vary drastically from waitron to waitron unfortunately.

We love going to "Montecellos" in Sedgefield. We have been going there for several years now and the quality of the steak that they use is consistently excellent.but be aware that even the small espetada is very filling. You are given a choice of chips, baked potato or salad ( for which you pay a little extra but it is well worthwhile) The salad is really delicious. The ambience is warm and cosy particularly if you sit at a table near the fire. It is sensible to reserve a table as it is a busy restaurant. Look forward to returning.
