It's small restaurant and places are limited so it's best to book in advance. You won't regret the extra effort involved as this is some of the best food around. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the fish very fresh and the prices extremely reasonable. There are other restaurants nearby worth a mention but for us, this was the... More

We had already identified this restaurant as one to try. When our hotel recommended it - the decision was made. We could not get a table on the first night but booked ahead and had fantastic food on the following night. Impossible to get in without a booking - we saw many couples turned away. We shared an octopus salad... More

Very friendly, fresh, good food. Recommended by our hotel. Quiet intimate place in the heart of touristic area. We arrived late in the evening after a long beautiful car drive on the coast from Dubrovnik to Split. Arriving from a 5 star beach resort, to a busy, noisy, small city is shocking. Therefore it was nice to find this charming... More

By way of research I decided to go to this konoba and give it a try. As there was three of us, we opted for two mains and a side salad. We had a grilled chicken fillet with chips and six grilled scampi. The chicken plate had no salad on it. The scampi were sold by the kilogram (a strange... More

Good day our Australian friend! We are sorry that you found our way of pricing strange but I assure you it is the fairest way to charge fish (or scampi, or calamari).. As every fish is different like people each one goes on the scale, then we put the weight into the computer. It is like this so you can... More

The service was great and attentive. The waiter brought out a tray of the catchs of the day to recommend us the freshest seafood. And they are flexible to offer a small portion of fish since I am ordering another main course. I ordered a shark fillet grilled in just olive oil and lemon, but it tasted fantastic. They have...

The most outstanding and authentic food in split a bit pricey but worth every penny. Small place traditional decor and the owners are always present at the place . They serve the local catch of the day. I had the most outstanding octopus preparation .
