Monte is a must do and worth the trip to Istria if in Croatia! The food is amazing and service impeccable. We so enjoyed our experience and the lovely dining room.

We went red (classic) and did not regret it at all. A wonderful mix of seafood and meat, augmented by a significant number of extremely good amuse-bouche type items. Probably overall the best meal we had in a two-week visit to several places in Croatia....More

Dinner at Monte is quite an experience. The food is good but you must order off their tasting menu. Each course consists of 3 or 4 small bites of well prepared interesting combinations e.g. beet with raw tuna. By the time you are done you...More

One of the most amazing meals of my life and well deserving of additional Michelin stars. The space is intimate but not so tightly packed that you felt crammed in. It was casual but had a very refined air about itself. The food was the...More
