Having heard it had changed since I visited last, I visited for dinner with friends. A great experience enjoying one of the best vegetarian meals I have ever eaten in a non vegetarian restaurant. The service was friendly and I will go back again!

A reasonably priced meal, but the restaurant lacks atmosphere. It looks clean and presentable, but with just 1 waiter service could have been better...

At the end of our holiday and after a surfeit of super seafood we were craving some meat. Monte's Bistro describes itself as a Steakhouse, which is fully justified. A rare rump steak with chips, salad and a glass of very good house red wine totally hit the spot. Brilliant !

Small, friendly place with helpful, courteous staff and very good food. My tuna was cooked to perfection and the creme-brûlée was excellent. Very surprised at one or two very ungracious comments from others.

Monte's is a great little place. The restaurant is clean and the service was great. My husband and I both enjoyed our dinners. There was only one server but he did a great job handling the restaurant which kept getting busier.

The worst experience ever! For the second time Tripadvisor failed. Both restaurant in Estoril.... Bread was ok. Fried string beans were edible. Tuna, veal, potatoes and spinach were not.
