“Always a Class Act”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

We regularly visit La Montana on our stays in Bedar and we have never been disappointed.
The welcome is always friendly, the food and wine excellent and all at a reasonable price. Although the menu is not extensive we have never had a problem finding something delicious to eat and my wife's gluten free requirements have always been catered for without issue.
Although up in the hills, Matt and his wife have built up a very successful restaurant and this is down to their hard work in providing excellent food and service making repeat visits on our stays in Bedar essential!

“Perfection in the hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Four of us have just returned from visiting la Montana, and we can honestly say it was the best food we have ever had, the starters through to the deserts were perfect, mat served us all night, it was a joy to be there and good value, the only down side is that we only found out about it on our last night and I don't live next door to the place, as I say it's perfection in the hills, definatly go there, we will if we come back to the area.

“Extraordinary value for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

One reads the hyperbole in the reviews and becomes a tad wary. But then you roll up at La Montana, accept the amusement that you provide to the locals sitting and drinking outside. Then you wander in. Others noticed the gins - I noticed the whisky range and was impressed. The welcome was a real delight, made to feel immediately at home, offered a cosy place in the corner for a drink while we mused over the menu. Then ordered the meal and another drink.

Although there was a party of eight just ahead of us, we never felt we were waiting for anything. The ambience was leisurely and comfortable, food was delicious and good size portions - the chicken breast with chorizo and brie (if I remember correctly) was delicious and the herbs must have just been picked before cooking. Dessert could not be missed with a lovely orange crepe. But the drive back down the mountain meant the whisky will have to wait until the next time - the coffee just offset the delightful white wine of the month.

I can see why this is almost a site of annual pilgrimage for some - it will certainly be on our list when we next visit Andalucia. Many thanks to Matt for a wonderful evening, and to Carol for conjuring magic out of a tiny kitchen!

“Return visit ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

It's turning into a bit of a yearly habit, but our return to the Montana was worth the wait! This this it was with more family members, and they all loved the food, the service, and the surroundings. Matt now has 26 different Gins ( no, I didn't try them all!). The choice on the menu was as varied as ever, with a really good selection of local wines (and Matt will always recommend one, based on your preferences). Unfortunately, we enjoyed the food so much that we are going back on Sunday :-)

“Superb Dining at such Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

What can you say about La Montana, Where ever you are it is well worth the effort to go there. The owners are very pleasant and accommodating. The menu is very well balanced and tastes better than you could imagine or expect. This was one of the best meals i have had in Spain. It is very difficult to fully give this place the justice it deserves, but in short .... Go there and then you can be sat in front of your computer trying to do it justice.
