Description: Experience local Dalmatian specialties in warm & friendly atmosphere. Our small family restaurant is run by the father & chef, making dishes that are passed on by generations. Blessed by the heavenly Adriatic Sea, seafood is mainly our thing. The menu is changed daily as we depend on the weather working with fish, it's simple & flexible so we can offer only the freshest ingredients. Groceries are bought near, on the local bazaar & the fish-market, even our wine & olive oil is made by small family producers locally. Make your way off the main boardwalk, into a hidden ally to discover food prepared in unpretentious, rustic way. Relax, have fun & create memories to keep for years to come.

We booked for lunch and were not disappointed. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere even at lunch time. The staff are superb, both friendly and informative about the food. We had meat and fish and both were exceptionally well cooked.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local who is a regular customer. The people who own and operate it are friendly and helpful, both in telling us about the possibilities and tailoring a menu for us. We had three varieties of fish and enjoyed each one. Almost everyone had a different favorite, which is testimony to how good... More

If you're after good food, friendly and knowledgable service and a warm atmosphere then this is a must. Slightly tucked away up an alley but worth the searching for it. We had the fish platter for 2 which was the best fish either of us has eaten, a lovely range and array of fresh produce. The staff were clearly passionate... More

I am from Split but would not have discovered this gem if it was not for Tripadvisor (locals mainly go to the restaurants outside the old town). If visiting Split, this place is a must. I’ve never eaten such a tasty meal in a resto. If you want to taste typical Dalmatian dishes, really tasty food with local and fresh... More

We ate the fish platter. We are delighted because all the fish is fresh. Squid are the best! I recommend this restaurant to everyone.

About this tavern we heard some excellent feedback from our friends and we decided to check. We were not disappointed, everything was very good, appetizer, entree, dessert, maybe a little atmosphere preopuštena for us from the central Croatian but we have to accept as authentic.

I was recommended by hotel staff to come and take dinner here and according to the advice of restaurant staff, I took grilled scampi as main course of my dinner. They were simply grilled scampi but very much tasty ! I talked with other tourists there who admired the taste and told me to have come there repeatedly. I also... More

With high expectations fuelled by the excellent reviews, we arrived in this tiny place for lunch. The waiter was certainly friendly, the ambience was certainly good, but I did comment and was assured it was fresh - it wasn't. I can only think that we must have timed it wrongly. So go in season, not Sunday or Monday, or just... More
