Coming back again this year since last year we had such an wonderful evening at this restaurant. We got there a little bit early and so we got the opportunity to choose the table which was very nice. We had the 5 course menue including the wine suggetions for each course from the Sommelier. Both food and wines were excellent... More

Read reviews and were not disappointed in the slightest. The staff were all passionate and attentive - the owner particularly so, but the waiting staff clearly loved their jobs. We had the 5 course taster menu (though this was more like 10 dishes with all the added extras), and the thought and effort in creating the dishes was clear. Other... More

This was the best restaurant we found in two weeks in Croatia. It was a proper restaurant, both in terms of gastronomy and ambience. We had the inventive seven course tasting menu. Of particular delight were the slow-cooked suckling pig, the aubergine starter and the asparagus gaspacho amuse-bouche. The knowledgeable sommelier enhanced our experience by suggesting good local wines such... More

Good Michelin star type of food, It's a pity that if you want to take the menu,the whole table must have the menu. Our daughter is 13, they were pushing that she should also have the menu. An unfortunate start to the evening. Otherwise it was good

This is a gem of a restaurant in Rovinj. The service is 1st class, the food is top-notch. We had the 7-course tasting menu for dinner and their portions are appropriate. By the end, we weren't uncomfortably full. They also throw in a whole bunch of amuse bouches so what was officially a 7 course menu, was more like a... More

We found this gem through Trip Advisor. And thank you TA..! As others said a nice walk up the cobbled streets to the top of the hill. Keep going to the top just before the church. It will be on your right. The hostess gave us the presentation on the 2 tasting menus- a 5 course and a 7 course.... More

This restaurant is right at the top of Rovinj, close to the church and you have a long walk uphill to get there. Is it worth it?? Yes definitely! We went on our wedding anniversary and so decided to splash out on their seven course tasting menu. By the time you add in all the exta tasty morsels offered, we... More

Our party of six enjoyed a fabulous evening of exceptional food, wine and hospitality at the Monte. The restaurant is beautifully appointed and the meal was of the highest class. This is fine dining to a standard that would stand comparison with a 2* experience such as Hibiscus in London. Such nice people too. Thoroughly recommended.
