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.

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.

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
