This restaurant is in an old imposing and historic building which was once the only hotel in town.it retains an element of grandeur with chandeliers and a pianist in the background in the restaurant but the overall dining experience falls short somewhat of the fine dining experience it promises.

Thank recordable
P-J B, General Manager at Dining Room @ Montagu Country Hotel, responded to this review

Dear recordable Thank you for the review. Our style is traditional SA cuisine, with décor and ambiance from the 1930's. There are restaurants in Montagu priding themselves as "Fine Dining" establishments, I would say we are bit more relaxed. Kind regards, P-J Basson General Manager Montagu Country Hotel More

This is the place for people who feel that they were born 100 years to late. A 'back to the future' experience to the South Africa of around 1900. Very nice atmosphere and good food.

Dear huringa We aim for the 1920 - 1930's, the Art Deco period. This is evident in our décor, music etc. Glad you enjoyed your meal with us! Kind regards, P-J Basson General Manager Montagu Country Hotel More

Be transported back to a time far gone in this beautifully curated art deco restaurant and hotel. Good food, service and amazing atmosphere with a fireplace in winter.

A step back in time you go with this charming hotel/restaurant. The menu changes often and the wine card has some of the best from the area.

Classical music always playing, piano performances in the evening, great gardens, extra special service! A little lacking on food variety otherwise this would have five stars!

If you are kind of a foodie, this is not the place for you. It's old-school, pretty bland food and there is little/no atmosphere. If you are young-ish and like good food, apologies, but this is not the place.

Dear D_Dubb015 Thank you for the review. I would obviously disagree with you on the atmosphere statement - have a look at the reviews of Montagu Country Hotel, and keep in mind this restaurant is the dining room of the hotel. With regards to "foodies" - you won't appreciate our food if the ambience is lost on you, and that... More

Nice old-fashioned atmosphere in this art-deco hotel from the 1920's. Food was traditional but of high quality standards as was the friendly service. This all together made our diner here a pleasant experience.

Dear Matthew95 Thank you for the review, but we cannot take credit for great pizza, not on our menu. You must be referring top the Burgundy Gherkin next door? Rhoda makes a mean pizza! Regards P-J Basson General Manager Montagu Country Hotel More
