Montes offers excellent, freshly prepared food at reasonable prices. The menu varies, both seasonally and based on international themes. The salads are outstanding. Private event meals can be arranged, and Montes also offers catering. I have always found the staff welcoming and very accommodating. I have an extensive cookbook collection, love to cook, and would rather eat at home than endure a mediocre restaurant meal. Montes has always met or exceeded my culinary standards.

The food, from start to finish, is spectacular. Wonderful ambiance and meals that you won't find anywhere else. You would be crazy to miss this place.

We couldn't believe our good fortune when we were recently introduced to Montes by the staff at the wine shop just around the corner. What a surprising discovery! (How have we lived in the Bangor area over ten years and not have known about this place???) It was very busy with an obviously devoted lunchtime clientele when we were there, but somehow everyone was served efficiently and with a smile. The menu is amazingly creative, and everything is freshly prepared. For a small establishment, we wondered how they managed (without sacrificing quality) to serve such a large variety of items including salads, sandwiches, wraps, quesadillas, fajitas, even a few specialty pizzas. They also offer gourmet dinners to go (after 3 p.m. M-F) such as grilled beef tenderloin with portabella mushroom sauce or apple-stuffed chicken breast with sage cream sauce. Can't help but wish this little unpretentious cafe were open for dinner or on weekends, but since its main business is catering, we certainly understand their priorities.

I am a regular. This restaurant should be #2, or #3 in Bangor - salads, sandwiches, wraps, deserts - it's all very good, a notch above mostly all other Bangor restaurants. Absolutely perfect for lunch!

I have never been disappointed with an order, service or catering gig. Carmen and her staff just know how to make it work exceptionally well.
