Our Restaurant is imbued with a provincial spirit, from a personal greeting at the front door to the food on the plate in front of you. Led by Head Chef Barry Davis, the kitchen serves food inspired by regional France, but anchored in fresh, seasonal produce, whether grown here or from further afield. Chefs make daily visits to the garden, harvesting the best of the produce for use in the restaurant. We run an old fashioned kitchen using new technologies where things are made from scratch. Flavour is Barry’s gift.
Our front of house team brings a wealth of food and wine knowledge and warmth to the dining experience. We pride ourselves on continuing to offer a consistently high standard of food and wine since opening in 2002.

The relaxed elegance of the Montalto Restaurant is set in a striking and harmonious landscape building featuring rammed earth walls, timber frames and rough-hewn floor boards. Floor to ceiling windows take advantage of the breathtaking and rambling rural outlook of vines, olive groves, sculpture, lakes and wetlands, with pasture, and a hint of the ocean as the backdrop.
