We had a lovely meal here and an excellent bottle of red wine. There was no room outside but was plenty of space inside. It has the added advantage of being no smoking inside which must be a rarity in Croatia!

Spent tow weeks in split and this was by far the worst food I ate during that time. The octopus salad tasted fishy and was definitely not fresh, the carpacio seemed to be machine sliced from frozen fish and grilled squid was tough and leathery. Maybe this was a bad day for them but I'm definitely not going to be... More

My actual review would be a 2, but the fact that this place was rated a 4 necessitates some curving. We just stumbled on this place. Definitely the worst meal we've had yet. If you want a good deal, go to Fife (food is still high quality). If you want a great meal, go to Konoba Korta. Don't go here.... More

We ended our sailing holiday with a day and night in Split. We had tried all week to book a local dish Peka but as it requires a great deal of preparation and cooking we had been unable to do so. We were able to pre book our Peka here for 8pm. We felt extremely lucky as the restaurant was... More

Went past this restaurant many times whilst visiting Split in the last 5 years, but gave it a try as it was our last 2 days this year. The food was so tasty and the portion was big. I had the pasticada and gnocchi, and I have to say it was the best Pasticada I have ever had. The portion... More

The restaurant appeared popular with locals as well as the stumbling tourist like us. certainly there are swankier looking places with far newer table clothes on the pavement tables but the food was the main and star attraction. the frogs grilled whole were excellent as were the veal chops and squid. The open mid restaurant kitchen showed that they were... More

The service was worst in Split. We had to leave the table to get some service and the restaurant had only few other customers. There was nothing special in this place. When we paid for our foods, they didn't even returned the change. When we asked for the change, the waiter said our check was XXXX kunas. I guess he... More

Good food and large portions. Ordered tuna salad and a plate of cheese and prsut for starters and it was enough for four people to share. For dinner we had cevapcici, pljeskavica and chicken. The cevapcici was large and there was 8 or 10 of them on each plate. The pljeskavica was served in two big pieces. The chicken with... More

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.
