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

excellent food, innovative, accompanied by interesting croatian wines, which is to my opinion a very good idea, excellent service. The best suckling pig I ever had in my life.

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

My husband and I dined at Monte in early September on our honeymoon. The food was exceptional, and the service was top notch. I was very impressed, and highly recommend the tasting menu for anyone who goes.

Possibly the best meal I have ever had. We walked up through the old town and watched the sunset before going into the restaurant - so a beautiful start to the meal! I went for what I think was called the vegetarian "essence" taster menu and my husband had the meat/fish taster menu. They did however offer to mix the... More
