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...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

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.More

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"...More
