We both had the lamb shanks - and thought they were delicious! In fact - for this type of meal they were probably the best lamb shanks I ever had. We were both surprised with the quality of food as well as the attention we were given by our waiter. A nice experience at a sensible price. Split is definitely... More

Popped into Split for dinner last Friday night. The atmosphere is great; the service quick, efficient and friendly. I had the most delicious scotch fillet, cooked to perfection! The steak literally melted in my mouth! Yum. My partner had the fish of the day, which he said was superb. The wine menu includes some very nice, high quality wines. Highly... More

Travelling for business, I dined here mid-week by myself. The atmosphere was great with friendly quick service. The fish of the day was amazing as was the cheesecake. Thanks

Took a girlfriend from Dunedin to Split for lunch, she had the lamb salad which she absolutely loved, I had the creamy mushrooms which was also delicious. The staff were very friendly and efficient in every way. I would definitely recommend to anyone local or visiting to give this place a try.

Visiting Whangarei and had Split recommended to us for dinner. Arrive at about 5.30pm - a few tables filled and others filled after we arrived. Waitress was very friendly and efficient. We had the scotch fillet and pork belly. Both meals were very good. Good size portions and very tasty. We did have to wait a while between our entree... More

We've had lunch here twice in the last month. Both times we have enjoyed our meals. We've had pasta, fish of the day (tarakihi) big breakfast and chicken burger. Each meal was beautifully cooked and there was plenty of it. The staff here are particularly friendly and make you feel welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to go back. Heaps better than some... More

We took our family of five out for dinner for my daughter's 15th birthday. The meals were absolutely beautiful. However it was rather too expensive for us but I guess that's what you have to pay these days for a nice restaurant. Also we did find it hard to talk to each other as it was a bit noisy due... More

People rave about this place and don't get me wrong it is nice but charging higher end prices it isn't good enough. I had a steak which firstly wasn't cooked how I asked and secondly was a little tough. For 35 dollars you expect better. It came with roasted veg and Green beans which were lovely. Nice change to fries... More
