The rum is pretty good, but they have some really great cocktails you won't find elsewhere. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food was great, a little different than you'll find elsewhere. They also have live music planning weekend nights and a back patio to sit outside. Overall a great place!

We celebrated my daughter's 25th birthday and had an excellent time. The service was great and the food was delicious. We easily made a meal of the appetizers / small plates.

I'm addicted to this place. From the gorgeous copper distillery upstairs that anyone is invited to tour (wood fired--just cool to see and watch) to the amazing 'small plates' which are not small at all but are a real meal that are so easy to share, they can can be so affordable. If you don't want something heavy and expensive... More

Stumbled upon this charming place by chance. Loved the people working there, they make top shelf rum, fantastic cocktails, and small-plate style food is available. The food was amazing. You can walk up to the second story loft and see the stills. We even met the chemist who was distilling and she was friendly and fun to talk to. Very... More

We love Montanya! Wonderful drinks, delicious appetizers and friendly staff! Also, all of their drink recipes are on there website. Our favorite drink is the "Cuban Daiquiri".

Well, the people at Montanya will tell you that the water is key, and it's easier to bring the sugar to the water than vise versa. I agree! The rum is excellent and they have... More
