Monte's restaurant & wine bar

Monte's Restaurant & Wine Bar has been a favorite among diners for more than a decade. 
We tried this welcoming little place recently and had a very pleasant dining experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and staff can't do enough.

Mocktail Monte's dream (RM13) - delightful combination of pineapple + orange +?

Escargots (RM19/ half dozen)- baked and basted in Chablis and garlic sauce, very buttery and garlicky. Above average standard

Mango and shrimp cocktail (RM19) - served with garden fresh greens. It was a joy to eat this appetizer before main.

Pan seared cod (RM 58) - serve with ratatouille and chermoula dressing. Looks and tastes fabulous.

Spaghetti marinara (RM 31) - combination of seafood, garlic and tomato sauce. It just tasted OK to me, not terrible but not up to expectation.

It is a classic restaurant worth a visit. Service is good, not too attentive which annoys me.

The price wasn't too bad either. Perhaps not an every week kind of price, but easily a once a month treat kind of price.
I'll definitely say the worst thing about this restaurant  is trying to decide what you want to eat. Charbroiled ostrich available for RM39 is a must try !
