Welcome to the Cafe at Montalto

The Café at Montalto is a stylish eatery which specialises in locally inspired dishes that people love – all served the Montalto way.

There are areas on the 400-acre estate where the gardening team, led by Head Gardener, Lesley Heron grows quite a bit of produce for use in The Café. Showcasing the produce of local, artisan suppliers and incorporating it into their dishes has enabled Montalto to nurture strong relations with them. Head Chef, Paul Ferguson uses many suppliers including Springmount Farm, Ewing’s Seafoods and Draynes Farm in the weekly specials. The reason for this is simple: supporting these producers as well as growing our own produce, helps to sustain the local economy and ensures that we can use the freshest, highest quality, naturally grown produce.

Our ethos

Although delicious food made simple is very much our ethos, we know that great food is never just about taste, it’s about the environment, the feelings it evokes, and the entire dining experience.

With this in mind, the Café at Montalto has been lovingly designed to capture the essence of the estate; the wonderful open-plan design and natural-themed decor are intended to complement the beautiful surroundings of Montalto.

Finally, trees, flowers, and shrubbery are prominent throughout the interior, while many of the eatery’s interior furniture pieces have been handmade from trees sourced on the estate. This ‘natural beauty everywhere’ design approach ensures a natural, memorable, and thoroughly relaxing dining environment, that’s conducive to healthy eating and personal wellbeing.

Our menu options

When you visit the Cafe at Montalto you can expect to find a range of delicious menu options which include homely soups, warming stews, spicy curries, healthy fish dishes – as well as a selection of flatbreads, all cooked freshly for you in our authentic Italian pizza oven.
