Monty, a professional butcher for over 45 years owned and operated his butchery in Sea Point which was known for its quality and service. He was well known and respected in the surrounding communities. Monty’s passion for people and love for food drew him to start a second catering business, bringing people together around the braai. With his knowledge of meat and age-old recipes Monty’s Spitbraai was born. Monty was well known for his biltong shops, Joubert and Monty’s (J&M), all the while doing his Spitbraai, which grew from strength to strength.
Monty’s spit braai was one of if not the first Spit braai Company in Cape Town.
Carol Montandon helped Monty in the butchery in the earlier years. Her secret recipes and sauces have been handed down from family member to family member through the generations. She adds her own special “homemade” flair to these traditional South African dishes. We are blessed to have “The queen of Spit Braai’s” personally overseeing every salad, canapé and dessert that arrives on your plate. Carol, together with Danielle (Athol’s wife) oversee the baking and cooking with passion and love.
Athol and Jake Montandon, the current owners, have been part of Monty’s since the age of 8... Tagging along with their dad. At the age of 20 they became business partners with their father. They both have over 20 years’ experience.
Today, over 20 years later, Monty’s Famous Spitbraai & Catering is managed and operated by Athol and Jake Montandon who introduce a modern flair while maintaining the tradition of quality and excellence passed down from their father.
They are both hands on at functions and personally manage and oversee the functions along with their dedicated team.
