Sadly seems to have gone down since being for sale.feeling is that owners and workers don't care.menu has simplified to no change pizzas and burgers (they used to have the best pulled pork) pizzas, and beers were always a highlight now can't even get a lager.still jugs can be cheap and the reason why it still fills up is the...

Whilst the atmosphere at montes is great, the food and the prices are getting worse. I was there recently, went to order a lager from the tap selection, but no lager available, all pale ale. I asked the bartender what kind of pub doesn't have a lager on tap, and his answer was a pretentious one. So I got a... More

Really expensive food for what you get. Great place though, outdoor settings are really cool and the pub atmosphere was great

They make the best fries in Alice Springs, I never get sick of them. The pizzas are amazing and great value for money. The cocktails are okay. Overall, it is a great place to chill with friends after a busy day at work. The only down side is the food takes forever to get ready, you will literally starve before... More

Love the atmosphere and had a great time with friends. We sat outdoors and it was very pretty with a good vibe. Was quite busy and packed on a Friday night. Found the food well priced and drinks were good as well. Got a bit rowdy a bit later in the night but was all harmless. A must visit!

Great time. Alternative to the normal restaurant/pub in Alice. Great kids area and live music some night...... not sure about the $1 surcharge on eftpos/CC transactions..... a bit of a robbery by management. Pay cash and screw the owners.

What a cool and eclectic place. The owners are almost always there and the staff are mostly travellers. Food is great and the prices are pretty good for the standard of the food. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the drinks are a little on the expensive side. Go to Monties on Thursday nights for the... More

One of those pubs you have to go to, even if it's just to say you've been there. Expensive for what it is but it's an icon.
