Review of Montsalvat

Montsalvat
Ranked #1 of 3 Fun & Games in Eltham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018

It gives you a sample of what the artists of the time aimed to achieve. It needs to be visited. it is a historic place about the past and how they did build this community to host art and culture in Eltham.

Nice setting and decorations.
Good coffee and brunch menu.
We were there as a large group and all the food came at the same time so that was great.
Only downside was we had the public holiday surcharge plus the credit card surcharge which did add up (we spent about $250) to a bit more than I expected.

Always love this place - in the summer the outdoor dining is exquisite and the restaurant itself, if dining indoors is full of character. Menu is always good and I recommend for all occasions

A lovely little place with plenty of art work to see, paintings and sculptures, all done on site in their studios. There is also a quant vegetable and flower patch.
The out buildings are made to look old (18th century).

Our fore fathers and the many people who made Eltham what it is today either worked here, studied here or become legends in the Arts ,mud brick building and contemporary visionary designers of houses, buildings and public places as you will see today. I will say Mr SNR and JNR JORGENSEN had a vision. This is Montsalvat as you will see it today. Pay the fee to have a wander around the buildings and galleries. There is a nice café to top up with coffee or at differing times a nice meal. Very photogenic. You can also learn the history of this amazing place in time.
