Good food, central location, fine wines and a warm and welcoming atmosphere are proving a successful recipe for Montys on Montpelier. With a lot of hard work, the owners of this Battery Point restaurant have transformed what was a fairly run-down old antique shop into a light, warm and attractive restaurant space.

Natalie and Mathew Starkey recently came to Hobart from Perth, he from the executive chef position at Perth's Western Australian Club, she with years of front-of-house experience. With a lot of hard work they have transformed what was a fairly run-down old antique shop into a light, warm and attractive restaurant space with a delightful bottle-lined private dining room seating eight, a well-stocked bar with lie-back banquettes and two nicely appointed dining spaces with open fires, starched linen and quality tableware.

The menu is small (five entrees, six mains) and changes regularly around dishes that might best be styled as good-quality mainstream, the food flavoursome and nicely presented with a few interesting touches such as a cucumber and gin jelly with oysters and shredded beef cheek ravioli with porcini and truffle creme. Given its location, Natalie's professionalism, the warm, intimate feel of the place, the small but well-selected wine list and the competency of the kitchen, it is proving a popular and successful addition to the city's dining scene.

Monty's on Montpelier - User Reviews

T&T:

My wife and I had an amazing meal at Monty’s. We had the tasting menu which was expertly cooked and presented and was one of the best meals we have had in a while. The ingredients were fresh and the wines recommended matched the food perfectly. The serving staff and Maitre De and were very attentive and the atmosphere with log fire and full restaurant was memorable. It made our trip to Tasmania worth it alone. My complements to the chef!review  04/09/2013

This was a great find. Hidden behind Salamanca, Monty's does wonders with a fine combination of service, style and cuisine - all done with a bit of a twist. I loved the meal I had here and look forward to being able to go back.review  07/07/2010

I wanted to share my fondness for Hobart with my wife and I was able to get a booking at Monty's to have an evening of fine dining and spoiling ourselves. Even in making the booking, Monty's were impressive; paying attention to little details that I mentioned and always being prompt to get back to me. We went on a cold evening and were quickly warmed by our table side fire that added both warmth & charm to the eclectic layout of the room we were in. Our waiter for the evening was very knowledgeable of the menu and ensured our night was seamless. Our entrees came out and smelt amazing - I had an ox tail pie which had so much flavour in it, it was a real treat. My wife liked the pate, but it could have been a little smoother on the palate. My main of a wild mushroom risotto wasn’t as rich as I expected, nor as oozy as far as the rice goes, but as a unique flavour profile to a light rice dish, it was very enjoyable. We over indulged through the first two course so couldn’t fit in dessert, but the menu looked impressive. We’ll have to go back. I’ve already convinced some friends to give it a go when they take the trip down. This is a very good restaurant, worthy of the attention of all food lovers.review  23/06/2010
