Great sevice, nice location, simple food prepared with skill. Very nice meals with truffles with very affordable price. The most expensive dish is 20€. Prices in inland Istria are something cheaper then on the coast but when it comes to experience the inland is much much better. We will come again, thank you guys!

To tickle your taste bud with delightful truffle, you MUST come to Konoba Mondo. I'm always skeptical when a restaurant is highly ranked and praised by various reviewers. But surely, it did not disappoint. We had some homemade pasta with generous toppings of truffles, the risotto and the omelette. All was wonderful delicious. And best of all, it did not... More

Main dishes were pretty good but appetizers and desert were just average. Not sure if everything was home made or some of it came out of a packing like the pannacota. It lacked of taste. The penne wit pistache however was pretty tasty.

Get away from the touristy restaurants all offering the same fare at the top of Motovun and go down through the upper gate and carry on 100 m down to the Konoba Mondo on the right, nestling under the town walls. If you are walking round the battlements you can spot it below. The food is staggeringly good whether the... More

Truffles, fuzi, this place was recommended to us and we decided to visit since we stayed in Motovun. The food was very good, not fantastic, but still very very good. We are fans of truffles so whatever comes with truffles we are likely to appreciate. The service was excellent, friendly staff, meals were fairly priced and their recommendations seemed sincere...

Delicious! I had the linguine and it tasted like a bit of heaven. The tapenade was amazing. The most nice waiter and a beautiful setting!

It was so good that we rushed back from Venice to have another lunch here!!!!! Seriously....it's insane delicious! Went because of Anthony Bourdain and it exceeded my expectations. Adorable town....nicest waiter ever...and food is incredible! Got the caprese salad and tagliatelle with truffles. I will dream of that dish for years!!!!

We just happened upon this family-run restaurant when visiting Motovun and it served up one of the best meals we had in Croatia. We started with a fabulous antipasto plate which included the house speciality spread made from truffles, black olives and capers plus a selection of local cheeses, prosciutto, olives and baby dills alongside a basket of crusty bread....

We drove to Motovun to check out this charming town. We were also hungry and how can you come to this area and not have truffles. I admit that I am not a huge lover of dishes with 'truffles' in them. I put that in quotes because most places just use a truffle oil which I find overbearing. We stopped... More
