Description: 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.

Dropped in to Montania one Winter's night on the fly. We were greeted warmly and seated. Montania has a real, cosy atmosphere. There is easy parking outside, and both the food and wine menus offer variety. The wait staff are friendly and very efficient, although it did take a little while for our orders to be taken. Portion sizes are great and so is the quality of the food for the prices. It was a quick drop in and we only had mains, but we will certainly be back to spend more time. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

I have been coming here for several years with a group of friends. It has a diverse and changing menu, which is always well executed and rarely disappoints. Daily specials are offered and the place is licensed. Service is friendly. These people know what they are doing!

The staff here are lovely, attentive and knowledgeable. The food is a touch too expensive for what it is, but the portion sizes are good - not too small but not too massive.

My only negative is that when I ordered tea, I was given one teabag and a pot of hot water. Normally you would get a pot of brewed tea so you can make multiple cups. This way I was only able to make one. $3.80 for one cup of tea is ridiculous. It’d be such a small change - put 2-3 teabags in the pot and allow people to make more than one cup from it.

But other than that, a great experience.
