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

My wife and I went here based Rick Steves recommendation, and it lived up to the hype. It was pleasant, the service was excellent, and the food and wine were outstanding. It was here that my wife discovered that she loves truffles.

After days of pizza (for hubby's comfort) he agreed to let me pick. TA guided me here since we were sleeping in the walled city. Hubby is not adventurous nor does he like mushrooms, but since it was the start of white truffle season he agreed to try! On a Wed eve in early Oct we were the only two... More

Our travel agent JayWay travel recommended this restaurant to us and it was the most amazing meal we had in Croatia. We had the pasta and risotto with truffles and it was absolutely delicious!
