Monte in the Istrian Coast of Rovinj, One of Croatia's Best Restaurants

Rovinj, a beautiful old town in the Istrian coast of Croatia, is home to the first restaurant that received a Michelin star in the country in 2017 . Monte Restaurant owned by Chef Danijel Dekić and his wife, Sommelier Tjitske Đekić-Brusse , is a trendy gourmet gem nestled in the narrow cobblestone streets of the coastal town just a stone's throw away from Sant'Eufemia Cathedral. It's making waves among the gastronomically inclined population making it as a destination for the ones who are advocates of contemporary cuisine in the hands of a well-bestowed chef. The kitchen is well-researched and highly creative in composition. Aside from the prestigious star from the Michelin guide, Monte has also earned the distinguished spot of being one of Croatia’s best restaurants by Gault Millau. The awards didn't finish there because in 2020, Danijel was named the Chef of the Year.
