If love has a taste, you will definitely find out what it tastes like here...

This is not a regular restaurant, this place offers a true taste experience. It'll cost you quite a few bucks, unless you just eat to prevent death it's well worth the spend. We ordered the menu with the most courses, which were seven, though I'm sure I counted twelve servings. The sommelier poured... read more

And this is it-CLOSED UNTIL APRIL 2015! And you know what? We saw this kind of posters almost everywhere. There is nothing what to do in Rovinj anymore, except walking around. Season is closed. It was even hard to find a place where to eat normal Lunch. :/

What a superb restaurant. Mr Michelin needs to visit! We had the 7 course taster menu so that we could try everything - including 2 amuse bouche courses & an extra chocolate dessert! Every course was amazingly tasty and the presentation totally superb. The dishes were complete works of art in themselves. Service was excellent, although we did feel a... More

Monte is set at one of the highest points in Rovinj adjacent to the church. It is tucked away in a secluded spot. The resturant itself is both modern and stylish. The welcome on arrival was a high point, and generally we found the service and staff to be excellent. The food reflects Istria but with a contemporary twist. We... More

What a great restaurant in a small (but packed full of tourists) place like Rovinj. We opted for the 7 course menu (with wine), and didn't regret it. The service was perfect, and the wine servings was generous. The food however, varied between absolutely fantastic and quite bad. The star of the evening was the first dish (after several amuse...

This place has everything - an amazing setting, a beautifully designed interior, superbly attentive service and food out of this world! We went for the five course tasting menu instead of choosing the seven course one but we were really glad we did. As well as the amazing five courses there were so many additional exquisite amuse bouches, pre-pre deserts... More

We celebrated our 25th anniversary at this extraordinary restaurant. It is a beautiful, artful place. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome, and during the course of the meal the service was exemplary. We opted for the tasting menu, and it equals many of the meals we've had in Michelin-starred restaurants in France and Spain.... More

I agree with the precedent evaluations/review about the food, the originality and the service. I think it could be an almost 1 Michelin star restaurant. But the Italian usage of the couvert is a bit rude in this case. I know we're in Croatia, but we were in like 15 different restaurants and Monte was the only one to charge... More
