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.

The meal was exquisite and will join my very short list of best meals ever (there is one other experience which is tied!). Well worth the not immodest price. If you love food this is not to be missed. We had the taster menu and allowed the staff to pair wines with each course. I would go back to Rovinj... More

The whole experience was fabulous from start to finish, the quality of food and service cannot be beaten, remember to book to avoid disappointment as many famous people have been turned away without a reservation.

Our second visit and brilliant yet again! First class in every department. This place is so special. It is run like a well oiled machine, attention to detail is paramount.
