My girlfriend and I went here while on vacation in Croatia based on the excellent reviews here. I booked a reservation several weeks in advance. The entire experience was amazing. Everything from the staff that greeted us, to the servers, the food and the wine was all amazing. We felt like we were attended to the entire time without ever... More

My friend and I actually visited this restaurant last June (2015) but that was no longer an option on the drop down menu. it's entirely my fault for not getting round to the review before this. I feel bad as this was the best meal we had in Croatia and I should have shared the experience much earlier! the restaurant... More

When we booked our trip to Croatia, my husband had misgivings about the food. He is a French restaurant foodie (count those Michelin stars). Monte rivals any gourmet restaurant in France or Italy. The food is delicious and is presented creatively. The chef offers different complimentary tastings that preview the excellent meal that you will enjoy. The dessert we shared... More

It's been almost 2 weeks since we had dinner at Monte's but I'm sure that we'll remember it for a very long time, and all for the right reasons. Service was faultless, the atmosphere relaxed and we felt very welcomed and at ease. The whole meal was really a fantastic piece of theatre, a performance in which food took central... More

Monte was wonderful, the food was fantastic we had the 7 course tasting menu which was excellent and interesting. The quality of the food was accompanied by the warm welcoming hospitality of Tjitske Dekic who knows how to underline the great work of her husband. A must when visiting rovinj

We were warmly greeted by Tjitske (co-owner), and comfortably yet quickly offered an aperitif to go along with our 3 spectacular amuse-bouche. Once comfortable and with our palate awakened, we were walked through their philosophy and options of tasting menus: 1 traditional, 1 experimental. We opted for the experimental with the wine pairing and I have to say it was... More

We ate at Monte one night and Barba Danilio the next night. Not sure why Monte is not number one on the list as it was amazing. We did the 5 course tasting menu, and they added more tastes in between. Every bite was better then the last. The presentation was spectacular, food art with great flavor. Service was fabulous,...
