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

We dined at Monte during our stay in Rovinj, and it will absolutely go down as a highlight of the trip. We were there during a few of Rovinj's rare rainy days, yet joked even if we had to stay inside all day it was worth making the trip for Monte. The food is absolutely spectacular-- perfectly made, well timed,... More

We went for the 5 course tasting menu as per the hostess's recommendation and regretted nothing! They even made a few alterations based on our preferences. The place is a fantastic balance of spunk and charm. We left our credit card behind by mistake and the sommelier followed us around the church on our walk back ( I told you... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant after it was recommended to us by a Croatian friend. We were given a lovely table on the balcony in the treetops - very atmospheric. We ordered the 5-course tasting menu, which consisted of exquisite preparations of Croatian seafood (probably the best in the Mediterranean) and meat from the region, and lots of... More

We spent two weeks in Croatia and many lunchtimes and evenings in Rovinj - specifically its medieval, pretty back streets, where restaurant Monte is. Our evenings at this small but perfectly formed fine dining restaurant were fantastic - the setting, service, food and wines - and if we were to return to Rovinj we'd make Monte a definite part of...

It is an expensive restaurant, but it is really worth. The staff is very friendly, the preparation of the dishes is excellent and the atmosphere is elegant. The restaurant is located in the historical city center of Rovigno (Rovinj), on the top of a hill and this increases its charm. I suggest you to book the only table they have... More

Had dinner here last night and though we have been in many 3star restaurant all over the world, Monte really stands out. Great food, presented perfectly without the unnecessary fuss but just beautiful and unusual. They put thought and love into what the are doing. Service is great as well We will come back for sure.

I visited this restaurant about 3 years ago. I thought that it was okay but rather trying to hard to be something they are clearly not. It is a good enough fine dining restaurant but you can eat at other less pretentious places in Rovijn ( and less expensive) and get more satisfaction out of the food ( Santa Croce... More

We ate at this fabulous restaurant on 2 occasions, first we had the 5 course taster menu with accompanying wines, the second time we ate from the menu, the food is simply exquisite, the service exemplary, having eaten at a few michelin star restaurants I cannot understand how this hasn't got one simply top class
