Italian
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.

This place is ‘home from home’ for my friends and me. The staff are the ideal combination of friendly, fast and efficient.

A neighbourhood gem we are so lucky to have.

What should have been an enjoyable catch up with another couple, turned into an unforgettable evening for all the wrong reasons.
A coupon for 4, purchased on Scoopon but through misleading information provided was booked on line with the restaurants was rejected by the restaurant. Whilst agreeing with us that the details regarding making the booking were unclear, they were not prepared to provide the offer to us for payment of the purchase price directly to them.
Very poor PR given the situation

My daughter had given my husband and myself a goodfood guide voucher and we went to Montania for dinner. we both had one of the special dishes and they were amazing! We both ate everything on our plates. The staff were very friendly, polite and no request was too much trouble. We received our meal in good time after ordering.

All our meals were delicious and the staff are very friendly and attentive to our table. We love coming to Montania as we know they never disappoint with their food options and size of meal. Would love to have no music in background though as restaurant patrons then talked louder to speak over the music. We are definitely going back though as the food and service are second to none.

Good venue, conveniently located. Handled group booking easily. Reasonably noisy. Can recommend if you want a no fuss local meal
