One of the historic days for both our gastronomy and tourism is certainly a great success and recognition of the restaurant Monte from Rovinj, which became the first and only Croatian restaurant with a MICHELIN star.Late last week, Metro, which is a global partner of the MICHELIN guide, officially handed over the MICHELIN star to the Monte restaurant. Along with Monte, twelve restaurants from the Istrian County – Meneghetti, Batelina, San Rocco, Konoba Morgan, Zigante, Marina, Damir & Ornella, Konoba Čok, Sv. Nikola, Wine Vault, Alla Beccaccia and Pergola – entered selection of MICHELIN’s gastro guide for 2017 and presented them with plaques in METRO in August, the so-called MICHELIN plates.”METRO recognized the strength and potential of Istrian gastronomy in 2014 when we opened the first wholesale center in Istria adapted to hotels, restaurants and caterers. METRO has also cooperated with MICHELIN’s guide in Croatia in order to help Croatian restaurants and caterers take their place on the gastronomic map of the world.”, Said Roberto Mancuso, President of the Management Board of METRO Cash & Carry Croatia, adding that more than a third of METRO customers in Croatia come from the HoReCa sector, including 32 restaurants with a MICHELIN recommendation.With more than 100 years of experience in restaurant selection, the MICHELIN guide today recommends more than 20.000 restaurants in 30 countries around the world. Whether it is Europe, Asia or America, MICHELIN inspectors apply the same criteria in assessing the quality of every restaurant they visit anonymously. Using a unique process perfected over the decades, the MICHELIN guide has become an international reference for fine-dining, and the MICHELIN guide plaque is an official recognition that the restaurant is part of the 2017 selection. The MICHELIN guide presents a selection of the best restaurants and hotels in the 28 countries it covers.
