A friend and I enjoyed an excellent meal at Montania and to add to this our waiter was very helpful and attentive to our needs. I had booked online and requested a table in one of their quieter areas if they had one, and considering it was a busy Friday night they managed to make sure we weren't seated too... More

Three of us had lunch here, and we all enjoyed our meal. The service was friendly and efficient. We ate the honey soy chicken salad, the calamari and the pork belly with scallops. No leftovers! My friend is already returning for breakfast this weekend.

Food and service was great, we had a fussy eater the the staff were happy to accommodate. We went early in the evening so wasn't too full but was very busy by the time we left so not sure if you need to book. Small and cosy, will definitely be returning.

My first time here, exceptional service, genuinely friendly and engaging. Three of us for lunch, didn't have to wait long for meals to be delivered. Fresh ingredients, generous portions and delicious. The wine list provides a good range, we opted for a Heathcote Shiraz great drinking and good value.

My friend and I had dinner there last night and doubt if we will return. After waiting 30 minutes, we eventually had to call for service to place our orders. It was also difficult to get the waiter/waitress attention when it came time to pay the bill. They always had their heads down and not paying attention to the customers... More

Food is good, service is good, price is reasonable. Always advise to book as it can get quite busy, particularly for weekend breakfast.

Meals were good and in generous portions. Service were excellent, friendly and courteous staff and nothing is too hard. One guest requested red cut chillies and it was brought to the table with a smile on the waitressing staff's face. Greatmeetingplace awing easy and mole parking.

The multi award winning Montania cafe bar restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Nestled right on the edge of the Dandenong Ranges with a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a reputation for great food, service and coffee. Our Chef brings to the table an extensive menu with a twist on classic Italian, complimented by a fantastic beverage list. In the mornings kick back with the daily paper, a creamy latte and perfectly poached eggs. What a start to the day! Best news is on weekends we refuse to penalise late risers, offering an all day breakfast menu, with 2 dining areas to choose from.
