Wow! what a delightful experience. I have never been to a Michelin Star restaurant but I simply cannot imagine one being better than Monte, stunningly set high up in Rovinj (Top Tip - get a taxi to the Church on the hill and simply walk down to Monte, otherwise it is a real climb up, up through the steep cobbled...

After having a blast of a 7 -dishes menu last year, we went back to Monte. Same beautiful location, same attentive waiters. We were a bit disappointed this time - the menu was close to identical from last year. The experience and the food is a 5-star, but we wanted some new tastes.

Everything was great again. Tjitske and her staff in the restaurant and Daniel in charge in the kitchen, what a perfect combination. The young generation represented by Ilja took part in making it a perfect evening. After numerous visits we are still surprised that we find it better each visit. As said before: a visit to Monte is a must... More

We visited Monte as a table of 8 for my husband's birthday. Service was impeccable and the overall dining experience out of this world. A delight to experience something so different in such a wonderful setting. Despite the set menu (choice of 5 or 7 dishes), total flexibility was possible for those in our party who didn't eat the raw... More

Went here twice with my girlfriend. Excellent food. Excellent presentation. Fine dining avant la lettre. We would especially recommend the vegetarian menu, although the last dishes before the dessert was a bit too much of (good) cheese (in our opinion). We will come back many times, also we expect this to be one of the first restaurants in Croatia to... More

My husband and I had the 5 course meal "Sense". We also got four extra courses from the house. Lot of fish in the "Sense" meal but they easily changed on of the fish dishes to a delicious vegetarian course. Excellent food and service all evening. The food was made very creative and delicate and We will absolutely eat here... More

A fabulous meal . We guessed it was going to be good when the first starter of filo pastry with olives was served on a piece of coral. From then on the food got better and better. Attentive and knowledgable staff who all spoke good English. Good wines selected by the helpful female sommelier But the food was the star... More

This is a truly excellent restaurant, we enjoyed or meal immensely. We were warmly greeted, well looked after, enjoyed first class dining, and Monte will be our first place to go back to in 2016. We chose the 5 course tasting menu as opposed to the 7 course alternative. The staff called a taxi for us for our return and... More

The most creative presentation of food we have ever seen. Quality good too. We had the 7 course taster menu which , after the 3 'free' starters , was a bit too much. Food excellent but puddings a bit disappointing (we are not 'pudding people'!). Service excellent - we thought a bit quick early on but this was necessary to... More
