I have been here lot of times and I enjoyed every single time. Almost every time we take the same-octobus salat as a starter and fresh grill fish as a main. This is probably their best dish.. Really simple but very fresh and tasty.

Conveniently located close to old town but on a quieter side street, this restaurant served up some delicious cuttlefish risotto and seafood carpaccio. Good value in Split, which charges tourist prices for most food and can be a bit daunting. Server was nice and attentive and the meal was a decent value. Good for traditional Croatian selections.

There is absolutely nothing special here. The service was surly, no atmosphere and pretty pricey for the food quality. We had a risotto dish and pasticada - this dishes came out in less than 10 minutes - they tasted like pre-prepared food. I would not recommend or return. There are so many superior restaurants.

I came across this little gem by chance whilst wondering the maze of Split, Croatia. The locals were sitting outside on a hot summers night dishing from the plentiful dishes on their tables. The very charming and friendly waiter/owner asked if I would like to see their menu... The rest is a satisfied "yes" history. The beef Pasticada is a... More

We went there on the first night after it was recommended to us by the owner of the apartment we were staying at. We had the 'Catch of the day' and a side order each and weren't full at all. We have had more satisfying meals subsequently elsewhere in the Old Town at a more reasonable price which is why... More

Hopped to Varos on my last day in Split for dinner with the traditional Pasticada. I came in early so there weren't many people around so I got very good and attentive service. The Pasticada was fantastic, it is a delicious dish and the accompanying gnocchi were fantastic as well. If you are looking to try this traditional dish Varos... More

I've had cuttlefish risotto maybe two or three hundred times in my life, but in konoba Varos that dish is something to shout about! My God, I couldn't stop eating, I just couldn't! And then I ordered another one, finished it too! And a bottle of wine, beautiful Zlatan Plavac Plenkovic , of course...ah, what a night! What a night!... More

Went to dinner here twice. The first time was so good, that I went back for another round. Take your time to eat here, if you wanna rush through your meal, don't go here. Just relax, sit down, and enjoy the decoration and Croatian music. The menu offers something for everyone, in price ranges from cheap to very expensive. Really... More

This restaurant is fine but there are better Konoba in Split from our experience. We ate here on our first night and konoba marjan second night and had the fish platter for 2 at both. We found the variety and quality of the fish was better at marjan. Also it was slightly disappointing here that the seafood risotto only contained... More

The food served here is very nice, the service is great and the atmosphere was spot on. Plenty of customers, would imagine that in the season you may have to book. Well worth a try
