Excellent Croatian Restaurant in Motuvun

My wife, sister and her husband visited the old and picturesque town of Motuvun on a glorious day while we were travelling through Croatia. We had lunch (outside on a little patio just across from the actual restaurant). It was a beautiful day and after sightseeing in the town, we thought eating... read more

After a very nice scenic drive up to Motovun, and a short hike into the town, we had a very good meal for two here, with wine for something like $60. Without question an excellent value.

We take carpacio with cheese and home made pate wirh truffles, that was faboulous. And then the best part: creamy polenta with black truffles and tagliate with black truffles, that was amaising. Waiter was so warm and normal, we felt so welcomed, many thanks. Definetly you should visit !

We read about Mondo in online reviews and knew this is a must try for us. We had made reservations for 9pm. However, the drive from Zagreb to Motovun took longer than planned because of some road works and rain. By the time we arrived in Motovun and found our apartment, it was 9.15pm. I called and asked the waitstaff... More

We visited here in May 2015 and found the food to be of a very high standard. The waiter was a local man and he gave us good advice on local places of interest. We also received a complimentary basket of bread and pesto along with our lunch.

Located on the main street leading up to the top of Motovun, this Konoba is still a bit off the main buzz, at least in the evening. A nice variety of dishes, as everywhere here many with fresh truffels, all er odered was tasty and well prepared. Starting with an Instrian plate (cold starters), I opted for the Polenta with...

I just dined this evening at Mondo, and it was truly mediocre. The tepenade was nice, mozzerella and tomatoes were cardboard, the ravioli weren't cooked and cold and sent back, the tagliata under cooked but good quality meat so edible. The house wine was pretty awful. We also has the antipasto cheese and sliced local meats which was also unappealing.... More

We research where to eat before we visit and Mondo lives up to all expectations. My husband and I chose different first and second courses and swapped part way through. The bread, olive oil and tapenade were the best we've ever had. We chose tagliatelle and polenta with truffles as a starter. Without a shadow of doubt we both agreed... More
