This time last year this restaurant was absolutely brilliant, unfortunately has gone rapidly downhill, the food is at best mediocre.
Very slow service which to be quite honest is the norm for SL

In Freetown, Montana's is known as the pizza place. Pizza is hard to find in Sierra Leone, and given the humid climate you have to chose a spot that can properly cook dairy products like cheese.

An American recommended the pizza here, so I tried it with business associates. An overpriced $20 pizza feeds two, but oddly enough the various ingredients are never mixed together. Instead, one ingredient like artichokes lie on one slice, while another ingredient lies on another. Odd. The crust is soft and the overall pizza has a supermarket feel to it. I wonder how fresh those artichokes were.

The burgers and sandwiches fare even worse. They stick french fries inside the burgers here. Again, strange. The taste lacks.

On the plus side, the owner is a really friendly Italian, and the wait staff is average by SL standards. If you're coming to drink beer, the view of the ocean is remarkable. After all, the raised patio rests on the beach itself. The view is the best thing about this place.

Also, the washrooms here are spacious and clean, among the best in Freetown, a city where clean washrooms are rare.

Overall: come for drinks, but eat elsewhere.

Reasonably cheap at 130,000 ($30) for 3 courses plus a beer and coffee, and not bad compared to what you can pay. I was surprised that it was empty on a Saturday afternoon.

Service reasonably quick by SL standards and food (fish soup, shish kebab and ice cream) were well cooked and tasty – especially the fish soup.

You can eat outdoors on the beach side of the road or indoors on the other side. Wonderful views of the incredibly long (and deserted) Lumley beach, but also of the rubbish piles!

You’ll need transport of some kind to get there and back.
