In my top 5 meals of all time!

Wow, what a holiday highlight, having eaten in many great restaurants and being a real pair of foodies we didn't expect to find a contender for our favourite meal of all time when on holiday in Rovinj.

We went for lunch and they have an interesting menu with many ingredents not very common to see. Although the amount of food is not very big, we enjoyed the taste of the combinations of new flavours. The price is more expensive than normal restaurant in Rovinj but i think it was worth it. Also the service was very good... More

We decided on the 5 course tasting menu. The food was beautifully presented and although expensive for Croatia, we felt it was great value for money and a lovely way to celebrate my daughter's graduation. If you want to visit, best to pre book as it is busy and they do not rush customers through.

Top level of Croatian kitchen! A true symphony of various tastes, beautifully arranged and presented. All along with exquisite local wines. Very sensitive, efficient and warmhearted service. Come early, prepare to stay long... but it's worth every minute!

A must for foodies. We went for the 7 course tasting menu which is a bit more adventurous. Although with all the amuse bouche in between it was more like 10. Every dish was creatively presented and the tastes were exquisite. It's a lot of stomach so try to start a little earlier if you want to go for the... More

From start to finish this food experience was mind blowing. The owners a husband and wife team that excel all expectation of food and front of house service. We sampled the 7 course taster menu that was recomended along with other alternatives. Each course excedeed our expectations regarding taste, originality and pure artistry on a plate. We absolutely recommend this... More

We had read about Monte, and made a reservation for lunch, expecting to get the degustation menu. At first I was a bit disappointed to find out that lunch is a la carte and only 2 or 3 courses. However, once our lunch began, all disappointment evaporated. The food was sensational. Inventive, generous, intriguing, local, fresh, very attractively presented and... More

An explosion of taste! We loved the menu "Tendence", which was very well accompanied with different wines! Incredible design of food and such a pleasure for mouth and eye! We will for sure visit again! Thank you!

Stylish location up the hill in Rovinj, we enjoyed the tasting menu with corresponding local wines - surprising and extraordinary. We didn't even look at the menu card what's next, we just savoured the creatively presented food. In our opinion, this restaurant stands out of the tourist mishmash and deserves a star, two thumbs up for the Monte!

On our week trip here in Rovinj, we just had to try Monte as the reviews were so nice and it was just right up our street! The restaurant manager was so Professional and nice. She really made us feel welcome. The 5 course surprise menu was delightful. My favourite was the lamb. I keep on being amazed by Croatian... More
