Hi Hanna, thank you for your feedback... Our food goes through a very detailed development process before ending up on our menu. We would love to know what meals were ordered so we can look into that for you.

This is a solid place to meet some friends. The food is pretty good but seems a little pricey for what it is. Still good vegetarian options and the deserts in the case where good if a little large. Service was good and they where...More

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.
