We had a good meal here with friends, the waiters are efficient and the seafood buffet offers amazing choice which is all fresh. We loved the desserts and in particular the bottle of limoncello they bring you at the end!

Didn’t set out for anything special but saw a nearby seafood place called Montecristo on Trip advisor with good ratings so strolled in there. Turned out to be a great seafood restaurant with over the top décor and service. Décor reminded me of the Grotta Capri in Kingsford (Sydney) in 1960. Lots of coloured lights, a fabulous display of fish... More

I was there for a business meal and invited by a friend of the house. They owner is a very typical man from sardegna as well as his servers. All with a special way of servi g, a lot of humor and sarcasm. The place is well known for his fish dishes and this is what we took for dinner.... More

In Spain, the best seafood can be found in Madrid. In France, Paris. In Italy, Milan. This is a fantastic seafood restaurant a bit outside the historic district of Milan. Both the crudo and the cooked appetizer plates are great (we had one of each). When the owner came by, I told him that I really liked the small sole... More

If you love seafood, at Montecristo you won't be disappointed. The raw fish is very good and surely fresh (it may happen to see langoustines still moving in your dish) and properly prepared, the wine list is interesting and the service from the experienced staff and owner is very good. The price is in line with other restaurants of the... More

I feel so terrible about leaving bad reviews because the owner was sweet but this place is awful. It was crowded and we were seated in the basement which smelled like an aquarium that needed to be cleaned. It was so loud that the waiter could not hear anything I ordered so it was dinner soprese! I ordered grilled salmon... More

We found an obscure review on this place and we're staying nearby so searched it out very glad we did. Waiters were very entertaining and professional old school but fun with it. The owner came and helped us choose which was actually very helpful we could choose fresh fish and seafood from the display and they cook it however you... More
