Having heard that this restaurant was very popular, we booked well in advance by email and received a prompt welcoming confirmation. It is in a very pretty location just below the Church which overlooks the town. On arrival, we were greeted by the lady owner and quickly settled in. She and the rest of the staff were attentive throughout ensuring... More

Guided by the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, best restaurant in town, we made a reservation at Monte. We felt very welcome, an effecient and warm welcoming team waiting on us. Surroundings and ambiance - in the midst of the charming, authentic old city - can't be better, the interior dec alone is worth a visit! However, on the food front... More

We were 4 adults and 3 children. We booked a week in advance and got a nice table separate from the rest. Excellent service and food for both kids and grownups! Very nice wine pairing menu. We will revert when in Rovinj again! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

This is definitely a Michelin star restaurant quality. From location, interior, food, presentation, service... everything. The price is on the upper scale but it's worth it!

I really struggled with how to review Monte. 3.5 stars would be more appropriate, but TripAdvisor does not offer this choice. We had a reservation for a Monday evening in June. Upon arrival, we noted a large party seated already, and the dining room quickly filled up after that, including the table next to us, that was obviously friends or... More

We had booked a table in advance and was warmly welcomed at the door. Before we had ordered, small, tasteful dishes were placed in front of us. A bit confusing how everything worked and we did not know if was part of the meal or if we had a choice. Anyway, we ordered the five courses meny and everything was... More

From the first greeting on entering this restaurant through the presentation of a gift (ours were pieces of apple cake) to take home, the service at this restaurant was top notch. We had the Essence tasting menu and every course was a delight for all the senses. This was one of the best meals we have ever had. Make sure... More
