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.

Great restaurant, Great food (we actually went back the night after eating just for the chicken salad! it is that good!) Our waitress was amazing, really friendly and helpful and the menu and choice of food could cater for all. Thanks guys! will visit again if return.

Good service and great food. Always happy to come here for lunch and dinner, particularly when it's on a grab one special. Love it that the bar is well stocked!

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

This place was great. The chef substituted for our needs and the food was all great. We tried some new things, and the waiter and staff were so patient with all of our questions about the menu. Thank you so much, and we would eat there again for sure!

I love Split Bar. Dan, one of the owners, is always on hand to make sure your meal is perfect! I meet the girls here regularly and the food is always amazing I'm a vegetarian and they're able to revise most things on the menu to accomodate me. We also had our company xmas party here back in December 2013... More
