2 month after we are back from the trip to Croatia, still remember this great experience. Excellent food with good presentation, great services. Best of the Best!!! Really enjoy the evening with nice atmosphere.

Hidden in the winding narrow streets of the old town in Rovinj this beauty of a restaurant sits in the surroundings like a pearl in a shell. Fabulous service by any standards and definitely top by Croatian standards and a true delight to the senses. Make sure you make a reservation in advance as they have only few tables. We... More

We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. This was our third visit to Monte, and the evolution of the restaurant is truly evident. We went for the 7 course Tendence menu, which was perfectly balanced, with excellent wine pairing. The chef, Danijel Dekic loves experimenting with unusual combinations of flavors and textures, but for... More

Just when you thought it couldn't be better - it was -again. Another stunning experience, again a perfect selection of wines, a 7 course menu made to perfection. Monte - a must for everyone going to Rovinj. We are already longing for our next visit. Hilde and Jan from Oslo, Norway

My wife and I had the 7 course menue. Every meal was as expected - best we ever had - except the last course which was nothing special. Even my 8y old daughter was very much impressed. She had the kids menue and she also mentioned that this meet (grilled beef filet) was the best she ever had (and we... More

I will cut straight to the point: this was the best experience in a restaurant in recent years. As with many restaurants of this class the appearance and interior of Monte in lovely Rovigno are in excellent condition. One feels welcome and comfortable. We had the extraordinary pleasure of being offered a table on the small balcony under a bougainvillea... More

From the seated cabana area out front to the beautiful ambience inside, this is a lovely restaurant. Really welcoming, relaxed but with very (not overly) attentive staff and a great sommelier. Gorgeous and inventive presentation of dishes with some fairly challenging combinations of flavours, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food wasn't quite perfect (to our limited fine dining palettes),... More

The staff with the owners are really working hard to present all details in a perfect way. We had a 7++ courses dish with wine pairing. 3 hours with good tastes, not all to the excellent but several good experiences. Could have been more food in the total as the dishes was in general small. We had an excellent experience.... More

My husband has affectionately called this restaurant the best he has ever dined at. Ordered the octopus starter and the suckling pig for the main. The waitress explained the dishes in great detail. Both turned out to be more than exquisite - highly recommended! Felt exclusive too as they wouldn't serve more than six people at a time(wow!) Also given... More

The ambience is incredible, the decor original and beautiful. Our food was delicious and the sommelier selected a fabulous bottle of wine that went perfectly with the food. The dessert wine was out of this world.
