Cozy place, very good food

Small but very nice restaurant with really interesting and truly delicious food, staff is very professional and pleasant. Service was rather quick and atmosphere was so nice that we've all had great time there.

Konoba Mondo is not easy to get to, located on a Croatian mountaintop in the Istra region, just outside the walls of a 14th century castle. But it is absolutely worth the climb, and more. It's a sweet and intimate place, with exquisite food, most of it featuring tartufe mushrooms, or truffles as they are popularly known - a local... More

Excellent place to have the Istrian truffle experience. You get the most truffles for the price we have ever had!

This restaurant should be one of the best in Istria. It is interesting place with delicious food. Truffles are ingredient of mostly meals. They offer very good local wines. Staff is very professional, attentive and pleasant. The only thing which was not very good, it was quite cold inside.

This is surely one of the best places to try the Istrian truffles. If you are going to explore Istria, you should really have a dinner in this restaurant. Ordered pasta with white truffles and a beef with black truffles. Loved it. Pannacota with truffles for dessert. Very professional staff.

We talked to a local who said this was her favorite restaurant, so on our first night in Motovun we tried it. WOW! It was beyond good. We were there during truffles season, so we ordered a couple of their white truffle dishes. Absolutely wonderful. They shave fresh white truffles on to the top of your dish, right at the... More

We discovered Konoba Mondo in April and returned in October for another meal. Once again, we had excellent service and delicious food. This was white truffle season and the comparison with the black ones was an interesting experience. It is somewhat of a hike from Wasihington DC but we will be back.

Five of us were staying in a villa at the foot of the steps up to Motovun. It was the truffle season. We needed exercise so we virtuously climbed the 1000 or so steps to the top of the village, and then we needed lunch. By chance we landed at Mondo, and what luck. We chose a range of dishes... More

What to say? If you are a truly truffle fan - you have to come to this place. Everything is so beautiful. Settled in a beautiful Istrian city of Motovun, this is a must-go. Try the chicken pate with black truffles, their home-made ravioli or a beautiful mascarpone with truffle honey - you won't be sorry. The owner Klaudio will... More
