Had dinner at Monte last night and it is no surprise they have a Michelin star. The restaurant is stunning and the team make you so welcome from the minute you arrived. 3 tasting menus available plus a la carte means there is no lack of choice. We chose the ‘Red’ tasting menu with a good balance of fish and meat. The tuna 3 ways and suckling pig being the stand out dishes for me, but there was no lack of flair and skill in every dish including the amuse bouche and a few surprises along the way. The wine flight is well worth trying out with a great selection of local wines that work so well with the food. The sommelier is first class and good fun too.
This is a place not to be missed, can’t recommend it highly enough!

We tried to visit this restaurant last year but we couldn’t get in so we booked 2 months before our holiday. It is in the picturesque part of the old town ( beware slippery cobbles, up hill) and is unpretentious. The staff are so friendly and helpful in explaining the menu, but it is worth studying it before you go as quite a few options! OMG the food was absolutely amazing!! We probably had another 6 tiny surprises in addition to what was on the menu, but we didn’t feel uncomfortably full. We had the blue tasting menu, which is predominantly fish and I can honestly say it was the best food we have ever had and we have eaten at some great places!! A fabulous evening and we hope to return one day, I can highly recommend this restaurant!!

We had the loveliest dinner in Monte the day after our wedding, as a present to ourselves and our witnesses . We were in a group of 5 and went for 1 vegan and 4 blue menus and wine pairing. The staff (the owner, the waiters and the sommelier) were attentive, yet discreet and made us feel very welcome. Apart from the food being delicious and plentiful, we loved the friendly atmosphere and the individual approach of the smiling staff members and the courtesy gift from the owner at the end of the evening for our big day. Thank you.

We had a lovely dinner at Monte, the food was simply amazing and the service very friendly and professional! We chose the blue menu and kept being surprised by the combinations and flavors! The many amuses or, like they like to call it at Monte 'a little hello from the kitchen' were an incredibly nice touch and all tasted equally fantastic!
Can't really pick a favorite dish, the lobster & oxtail dumplings were amazing, but the pilgrim scallops with bonito foam..... I wish I could eat that every week!
thank you Tjitske and Danjiel and crew!

This time we did originally not plan to visit Monte but to try some new places. Anyway we came back and did not regret it. Menus have changed a bit into red, blue and green (vegetarian). We chose the blue menu and were again very pleased. Monte stays a place with great dining experience - always very interesting what ideas they create in their kitchen! And although a high-class-restaurant (lets name it!), still a very relaxed place to enjoy an evening. Service very good (although maybe a bit to quick at the beginning with all the pre starters and starter, but after we asked them to slow down a little bit, it was perfect), wine service excellent. Rovinj without visiting Monte would not be the same. (A pity they stopped to give out a little cake to take home as they did in previous years but well ...)
