Monte Fiore Cafe, 628 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9227 9898.
A mixed bag … Monte Fiore Café is housed in a great old building on Beaufort Street. It has wooden floors, a large wall of folding doors to bring the outside in and a large Bar. We’ve eaten there a couple of times now. The first when it wasn’t busy at all and it was quite a good experience with food, atmosphere and service being spot on. However, this last experience was a little too much to bear.
The venue was super busy, noisy and it made it hard to talk to friends. We had a large table and felt slightly squished. The kitchen is open so you can see the chefs making the food. Which would normally be a good thing but they didn’t look too happy.
The menu had a limited choice for me, as I don’t eat red meat. Ordered the prawn ravioli at $32 and expected it to be amazing at this price. Sadly, it was not.
The Wait Staff were great, the atmosphere chaotic, the food was nice but I feel it’s a bit overpriced.
This is a shame because the first time we dined here it was a completely different experience.
