One of the tastiest meals we've had

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... read more

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

This little restaurant on the way up the hill to Motovun's main gate was absolutely superb. We stopped for a delicious lunch (black truffle and eggplant risotto, and soft polenta with cheese and black truffles), and a glass of local white wine. It was faultless. Great food, great service, great ambience.

The magnificent town of Motovun was surprisingly empty during the May 1st holidays and many restaurants with nice sunset views made it difficult to decide where to go for dinner. In the end we went to this place, which was already recommended by many other tripadvisor users.The setting is really nice, the service was excellent, but when it comes to... More

The Mondo Konoba is located on a barbican outside the gates of the ancient walled town of Motovun in Istria. Istria is the Croatian version of Tuscany but without the touristification so common in many parts of Italy and France. We had thought we had discovered it but laughed when we saw the NY Times, very positive review of the... More

We had the Motovun platter for two plus the creamy palenta and omlette, both with truffles. The service was great, the price was reasonable, and the food was fantastic. Definitely worth the trip to Motovun. Not to mention the wonderful view this town overlooks.

Highly reccomended! Excellent service, athmosphere and food trully wonderful. We had rumpsteak in sauce with black truffles and red wine (teran). Orgasmic. Another seasonal dish was steak with wild asparagus. We left really happy :)
