Dinner for four was perfect. For a suburban restaurant Montania is exceptional. Quality food and wine at very reasonable prices, with great variety to suit all tastes. Prawns, gnocchi, pizza, and cannelloni all hit the mark. Service spot on.

We recently dined here with friends and enjoyed our delicious meals delivered by very courteous staff. We had steak which was thick and very tender. The service here is excellent. Our only negative is that it can be very crowded as it gets busy. We visited here for breakfast with our daughter a few days later and it had a... More

I had lunch recently at Montania early January. As usual I was not disappointed with the food or the service. There is a broad selection and the staff are friendly. Service is also available at tables outside.

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.

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.
