I rang to see if there were any Valentine's day deals, I was abruptly told it was normal menu. Asked if the half price pizza pasta deal was on, again told no,normal menu. That was it. Not friendly at all. Suffice to say we will be going to the other local Italian where they are honouring their teatime deal til... More

Visited here with a group of friends. It was a last minute reservation and even though we had been informed when the booking was made that the table had been booked straight after us, we did not feel rushed out. We all had starters and a main course. Food was good just a little salty (I don't normally put salt... More

Just been to Monte Cristo. For 12.95 - starter, main course and dessert, you cannot complain. To add to it a magician join us at the table - showed us a few tricks and made balloons for the children - fantastic touch. Would definately go again for the deal.

We used to be regular visitors to Monte Cristo. It is a great local Italian restaurant with friendly service and a good atmosphere. Food is nice and reasonably priced and there are weekday specials and themed nights. However, we have not visited in some time...until last night...and unfortunately we won't be back in a hurry. My husband and I went... More

The food and wine were great but we felt a little rushed. Not sure if this is normal? I have been before and never felt it was like this. The bruschetta for starter is lovely and the Carbonara is tasty too. It is not expensive either and they do have days of 1/2 price pizza or pasta with a full... More

We are frequent visitors to Monte Cristos - usually about twice a month. I have written a glowing review of the staff and service in the past and honestly and fairly reviewed the often 'hit and miss' food. Sometimes we go and have great food and a great night, other times it's not been the best. Unfortunately, within the last... More
