By Far the Best Meal

The entire experience was incredible, no detail was overlooked. We were very luck that we were able to get a table as we didn't have a reservation, so I would highly recommend booking ahead as this is one of those places that you will always remember.

My husband and I visited Monte September 2015 and were truly blown away. This was our 4th year in Croatia, and our first time at Monte. Wow have we been missing out all these years. I was able to make a reservation very easily over email with Tsitske. Upon arrival, our table was ready and we were in awe of... More

Hard to top this experience in every dimension. The whole dinner was as good as it gets most anywhere. We absolutely loved it having done the long tasting menu. Normally not given to such, we found this to be perfect at every step including the Croatian wine pairing. A memorable dinner. Hope some day we can get to Monte again!!

This restaurant (run by a Dutch lady and her husband) would surely have Michelin stars would they be awarded in Croatia. The food was truly superb, surprising combinations, very well done. Impressive wine list. Friendly and professional staff. Beautifully decorated. Expensive, count on at least 100 Euro pp. But worth it!

The more we travel it becomes more and more apparent that the words amazing, exemplary and fantastic become meaningless and trite. How do you objectively quantify the cuisine of a really fine dining experience. Raving revues are becoming ubiquitous. Meals measured against a Michelin star restaurants and to one another or to a off the wall unique gastronomical delight have... More

This restaurant deserves 5 + stars. From the moment we were seated to calling our taxi, everything was perfect. The food (we had a 5 course tasting menu) was outstanding - the presentation of every dish, the combination of tastes and the extra courses they presented - all deserved the highest accolades. Be aware that you can only drive within... More

My friend and I had not heard of this restaurant prior to visiting Rovinj. When we saw some information on it on Trip Advisor, we were intrigued and since we traveled when most of the crowds had already left, we were lucky enough to secure a reservation. Wow! We chose the seven course tasting menu, and also some of the... More

Monte - WOW! It's hard to even describe this place. It was some of the most innovative, unusual, and fantastic food we have ever had. At times we almost couldn't tell what was food and what was the plate! :) We opted for the 7 mini courses, which ended up being 12 courses with all the extras, but the courses... More
