What a little gem. Had a great meal, delicious risotto, whispering angel and a few exquisite cocktails. The staff couldn’t have been more friendly or attentive.

What a great place, the atmosphere was all you could ask for and the staff were friendly attentive and knowledgeable. Sonny could not have done any more for us, even taking numerous photos. We started by having a few drinks in the bar before moving...through to the restaurant and returned to the bar after lunch. We had the scallops for starters and some bread with isle of wight butter which was all beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The sunday roast was really good, with a lovely rich gravy and there was no shortage of meat. Great place, great atmosphere.More

We attended a bottomless brunch deal. £40 each, two course dinner. Very impressed with the friendly staff, so attentive! Food was great even though there was 10 of us on our table. We will definitely go back. Drinks topped up as soon as our glasses...were empty. Music was amazing all the 89 tunes! Great night thank youMore

Southsea’s little gem of a place. Sonny is the young gentleman that runs the place and he is such an amazing host. He makes the best drinks. Attentive and friendly x

Very quiet but the staff were very friendly. We had two delicious cocktails to start and then we all enjoyed a roast dinner. Very tasty but just a shame we had to leave by 6:30.

A great bottomless brunch at Monty’s as usual! Food was incredible, fast, attentive and friendly service! Would recommend to anyone! A massive thank you as well to the two servers on Saturday at the 12pm sitting, they were so lovely and helped me to make...my experience memorable as I asked my friends to be in my bridal party at the brunch - Will definitely be returning!More

We booked Thursday for a table for 3 today Saturday and was told they would call back Friday for deposit. No call back so we turned up tonight for dinner table wasn’t ready so we had a drink in the bar which was lovely ....We went then went to table which I wouldn’t say was dressed just had some cutlery laid down . Handed two of us menu and the other menu was actually a wine list no a problem I shared . Service wasn’t that great for the standard of restaurant. Was told on many of occasions he was new and apologised a lot was kind of off putting . Starters came out looked lovely but taste wasn’t nothing to rant about . Mains came out I had belly pork it was ok , friends had the lamb which was very fatty one friend had so much fat she sent it back . We didn’t opt for pudding as we thought it wouldn’t be worth it as it wouldn’t be up to our expectations of an ala carte resturant as we expected . The resturant was very quite and a lot of staff just stood around looking bored or on there phones . Toilets was dirty and very wet . Been wanting to visit the restaurant for a while now and have left very disappointed and won’t be recommended it . Massive game change is needed to live up to the previous staff such a shame .More

Four of us attended for Bottomless Brunch on Sunday. We were given a 5* treatment by the staff there. They were really attentive, nothing was too much trouble, the cocktails were well-made and delicious and the food was great. We had a brilliant experience and...thought it was great value for money. We'll definitely be back!More

Went to bottomless brunch yesterday and I can’t think of one bad thing to say, the drinks were amazing and not stingy like some bottomless brunches, the food was incredible and the service was seamless - they couldn’t do enough for you. Sonny (I assume...he’s the manager) made everyone feel welcome and ensured everyone was looked after. By far the best place to go in southsea. Thankyou 💗More

We went for bottomless brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Nice enough place but the food really did not live up to expectations…. Basil missing from the Caprese salad (1 of only 3 required ingredients) and avocado on a slice of Hovis… Staff were nice, drinks...were ok. Just did not see the worth of £40 ppMore

Hey, orders would definitely have to be in by 12. And best to book in early. We arrived at 10am. The restaurant serves lunch so we moved to bar area after we had eaten so the table could be reset. And we did stay after 12... More
