We stopped by for a nice lunch on our day visit in Trogir. The setting was gorgeous and typical Croatian (as far as I can judge). The staff were friendly and nice to us so to this point I would still say perfect. However, the lunch menu was a huge disappointment. The fish soup wasn't as bad though I don't... More

We thought we had found a fabulous place. The setting was magical, staff were friendly and although the chilled fried small fish appetiser was inedible the chosen starters were all good. However, our main course, the fish platter was extremely disappointing, overcooked and obviously had been sitting on the grill for a long time as the fish was very overcooked... More

The place may seem a little formal but at the same time it's friendly and laid back, and the food we had was absolutely first class, especially the octopus salad, the sea-food skewers and the grilled sardines. The service was unimpeachable, friendly without being too invasive, and the meal was very reasonably priced considering the location and style of the... More

The restaurant is set in a very nice, large inner courtyard and away from the general street hustle and bustle. Food was very enjoyable. We had the Dalmatian meat selection  (shared between two) and you were brought bread that had been slightly toasted on the grill - all very nice. Our mains sea bass and a mixed grilled meat dish,...

Monica has a very nice courtyard setting and friendly staff but the food is very average, I'm sure there are much better places to eat.

I have eaten both lunch and dinner at the Monica on many occasions , it is one of the best if not the best restaurants in Trogir, the courtyard is best in the summer months but it also has a fine indoors area for the cold winter nights. Food is great and they have an extensive wine list, enjoy !!!
