Best, best, best meal of our entire 2 week trip

I will say this was my first experience with FRESH truffles...but , boy, they did NOT disappoint! I was with a real foodie and she agreed as well.

Like truffles? Knob 'Mondo' must be your destination! I was there during season of white truffles. From appetizer, main meal, dessert ... Simple perfection of food, fabulous accommodating and friendly proffesional servers ... rustic, but classy, simplicity of elegance, home made pasta and local produce ... GREAT wine list, so original and authentic Croatian ambience. And abundance of free grated... More

Everything that we had here was very good, but nothing spectacular. The truffle dishes don't compare to those at Stari Podrum for example. Still this is a wonderful restaurant with excellent service and you cannot do better in Motovun.

Based on an article in the NY Times and other reviews, we added Motovun to our Croatian itinerary and Mondo fulfilled all our expectations. First of all, we were grateful that unlike so many restaurants in the area, Mondo does not close during low season. I had the wonderfully delicate home made fuzi pasta with white truffles and my husband... More

We were a party of eight! We didn’t book but they had a table to offer us sitting outside for dinner. It was lovely and lucky for us it was not too cold to be sitting out. I had the mussels soup and the tagiatelle with white truffles both were delicious and very reasonable! Our waitress was so nice that... More

Booked a table here via facebook messenger and it was one of the best meals we had in Istria. And far better value for quality of food than Zigante. Would suggest staying in Motovun and eating at this restaurant - super tasty, and freshly shaved white truffles over every dish. The service was exceptional. I had the ravoli special filled... More

I had lunch at Mondo on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I sat on the terrace which was great for people watching. I had fuzi pasta with white truffles. The white truffles had just come into season 10 days earlier. I had the house wine to accompany the meal. For dessert I splurged on chocolate flan with white truffles since it... More
