Prestigious International Restaurant Guide Rates Best Restaurants in Istria & Kvarner

MonteOne of the most influential international restaurant guides, the Gault Millau, have critiqued a number of Croatian restaurants, mainly in the Istria and Kvarner region, in their latest guide for 2015, with Monte restaurant in Rovinj voted the best…

Gault Millau, which was founded by well-known restaurant critics, Henri Gault and Christian Millau, rates restaurants on a scale of 1 to 20, with 20 the highest. Restaurants below 10 points are almost never listed in the guide. Based on this rating, high-ranking restaurants may display one to five toques. Gault Millau does not accept payment for listing restaurants.

Gault Millau rated a number of Croatian restaurants in the Istria and Kvarner region mainly because it is an area that the Austrians gravitate too, and this year’s guide has a special supplement for the Austrians.

This year Monte received 17 points, the highest out of all rated Croatian restaurants, followed by restaurant Damir & Ornella in Novigrad and Villa Meneghetti (16 points), Johnson in Mošćenička Draga, Kukuriku in Kastav, Marina in Novigrad, Pepenero, Wine vault and Zigante (15 points).

There has been discussion in the past about which guide is more important, the Michelin Guide or the Gault Millau. Michelin is more popular and therefore more influential, while Gault Millau has been considered more purist due to the main system being based purely on the quality of the food. Gault Millau also has guides for various other countries, for example Switzerland, Germany, Austria and the Benelux.
