We were recommended Montes for dinner by a local and it was an entertaining place with plenty for the kids to do. It would a great place to meet friends and have a drink or two, but the food and service was just plain bad. The food took over 1 hour to arrive from ordering, and when it did my... More

We really enjoyed our visit here however we found there was way too much sauce on our burgers which sort of spoilt them for us. HOWEVER the atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed the dinning experience. Some live music would have made it perfect.

The burgers here are unreal. Drinking here is unreal. It's existence in Alice Springs is unreal. A quirky circus themed bar that provides delicious food and alcohol. Always well staffed, always a lot of fun!

Attended tonight with two friends after a long day. Waited well over an hour and a half for meals and when approached staff both of our orders had been lost in the system. Was offered nothing but a Sorry and money given back. Bloody terrible not recommended unless they improve the ordering system. Won't return again

The venue has a great and relaxed vibe with a friendly but inexperienced staff. Great selection of craft beers but at a closer look only two was actually available and quality of food varies we learned after both having dinner and lunch here. A classic problem with seasonal backpackers/working visa employees according to our local friends in Alice. This place... More

Monte's is very pleasant and has a good range of craft beers. The serving size of the food is very generous for the price by NT standards.

Party atmosphere. Very busy on a Thursday night. Trivia inside at 7:30 I think. We had flathead, chips and salad. Very good. Nice range of wine by the glass.

Our burgers / salads were delicious! My mother-in-law accidentally ordered the wrong thing and they happily exchanged it for her. It would be nice if there was a designated smoking area away from other diners though. The staff were really nice.

It must have been good as Im back again. Great atmosphere and lots of people having fun. None of the nose in the air and grace's just... More
