The Michelin Restaurant Guide inspectors have awarded fifteen gourmet establishments from Istria. This is a result of an annual survey of gastronomy in the region presented in 2019 edition of Michelin Croatia.

Restaurant Monte from Rovinj was awarded again one Michelin star for its exquisite cuisine. However, this year one Michelin star goes as well to another exquisite restaurant from greater Istria, Draga di Lovrana.

Apart from Monte, two other culinary venues from greater Rovinj area have been included in the list; Alla Becaccia in Valbandon, famous for game culinary treats, and restaurant at premises of recently redesigned Relais & Châteaux property Stancija Meneghetti. 

Michelin inspectors have also anointed restaurant Sv. Nikola adorning vibrant Porec waterfront while the award for the best gastronomy in truffle area of Motovun Forest deservedly belongs to restaurant Zigante.

There are various strict criteria that every Michelin inspector evaluates: quality of the products used in food preparation, mastery of flavor and cooking techniques, the personality of the chef and cuisine, value for money and consistency in quality between visits. 

To remain independent in their opinion of restaurants they review, Michelin inspectors visit anonymously and pay for their own meals. It is only after paying their bill that inspectors may choose to introduce themselves and ask for more information, if necessary.
