Wonderful unexpected evening

We didn't have a reservation and just walked in and asked for a table for 2. After 15 minutes wait we got a nice table ( we were even asked to choose from three different ones) and were surprised by serveral amuse gueule served.

We were treated well from the moment we walked in the door. The ambience of the restaurant is lovely, and the staff are attentive, informative, and fun, without ever being overbearing. We opted for the 7-course tasting menu with wine pairings, and we were not disappointed. With all the extra amuses and the "pre-dessert", we had closer to 10 or... More

The relaxed attention to detail made for a very comfortable dinning experience. We went for the Tendence menu - the 8 courses almost defeated me but I enjoyed every bite.I do not think it matters what you order - everything is delicious!

a wonderful experience. Caring, charming service at all times but not snobbish at that. The 7 courses (+addititional extras) were a blast for all senses. The accompanying wines, mostly Istrian, were a very good choice I can highly recommend. At that level not expensive for international standards. An experience not only worth going out of your way for, but actually... More

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 us some nice wines for a relatively... More

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
