The restaurant is generous with truffles and staff were great. Not every dish is good, in our opinion, but when they get it right, it's fantastic. Pretty hard to get to the restaurant as it's in a very rural area. You have to park at the bottom of the top of the hill and walk about 200m uphill. Driving at... More

In your life time. You need to come here and eat. Don't think, don't look any further this is the place. Truffles in it's peek. Listen to Vedrans recommendations and you won't be sorry. I had gnocchi and my husband traditional Istrian pasta fuži both excellent. Thumbs up guys. Anthony Bourdain ate here. What else do you need.

This food was incredible. It was the best meal of our trip. The only problem is we ate way too much and walked back down the hill.

If you find yourself in northern Croatia, it's worth figuring out a way to visit Motovun and dine at Konoba Mondo- even if it is a couple hours out of your way. I, like many others, initially discovered this charming town and restaurant watching an episode of Anthony Bourdain's show. Our meal did not disappoint. The simple pasta with truffle... More

Really enjoyed the ravioli with white truffles. Taste was excellent and the combination of celery and spinach ravioli underneath the truffles was amazing. Recommended

After reading all the great reviews here on Tripadvisor, my friends and I were very excited to try this place out. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed and I really don't understand what all the hype is about... We arrived and were left seated for almost half an hour before anybody even came to take our orders. The service was below... More

We've been visiting konoba Mondo since 2014, on suggestion by famous tv personality, enterpreneur and chef Anthony Bourdain, but today they were totaly ignorant! If you dont reserve table, you can seat outside "like a dog" on 5 Degres - funny , thank's, but no more again! BR, Maria

Dear Maria, I don't know how to answer to this review. We are really sorry. But, If the inside place was full with reservations, what else I could do then offer you a table outside on the terrase, wich was btw, also almost full of guests because the weather was very nice. If you ever change the idea and decide... More
