I was with my girlfriend at the restaurant and we ate a la carte. The food, atmosphere and service was simply outstanding. We were very impressed.

Booked the restaurant three days before as it was fully booked even in September. The owner and all the staff were very attentive and helpful. Every dish was superb and the flavours incredible. As a vegetarian I had no problem at all with the choice and experienced my best ever meal! My partner, a non vegetarian, also felt the same.

It is difficult to explain the imagination and care that goes into the preparation and presentation of the food at Montes, it is truly a wonderful experience. My husband & I chose the 5 course taster menu having read previous reviews advising of the extra complimentary courses, which made this into an 8 course meal. It was an amazing dining... More

We had the 7 course menu, thought while we was here why not? Will let me tell you why not for us. We love good food but some things can just be over done and that's what we think has happened here. It was more about presentation than the food, stones, fork picks, sponge, gold spoons, black spoons, shells etc.... More

We came to this restaurant to celebrate my 50th Birthday and were not disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome and chose to have the tasting menu of 5 courses. Oh my gosh what can I say, the food was presented so well that we were reluctant to eat it. The tastes were wonderful and combinations intriguing. Thank you... More

Open in the late spring through early September, well worth a try. Reservations are required a minimum of 2 days in advance. You may get lucky and they'll have a table for 2 just waiting for you. One of the finest dining experience I have ever had...and reasonable considering the kuna is 7 to the one US dollar. Highly recommend... More

Truly a wonderful experience. The staff are attentive and clearly passionate about service and their cuisine. We ordered the 5 course tasting plate, wow! The presentation was perfect and the textures and elements were stunning. I cannot rave enough about this restaurant. An absolute must, book ahead so as not to disappoint.

My wife and I had dinner here. The food was outstanding. No other words for it, maybe superb. The service though was a different story. Despite trying hard, being attentive and friendly, there were so many service mistakes. The beginning was so rushed, that the pre-dishes came faster than we could. The waiter seriously suggested I should hold the first... More

Had an absolutely fantastic dining experience in Monte! The food is very unique and certainly expands your taste buds. The steak was the best fillet steak I have ever tasted. The restaurant itself is a hidden gem and in a fantastic location right at the top of the old town. If you walk there be prepared for a little bit... More
