Found the review on TripAdvisor, and then asked for a recommendation at the hotel. All four clerks behind the desk conferred and unanimously suggested Kadena. Overlooking a small marina, this is a starched white tablecloth spot. The waiters bring out a tray of the day's catch so you can eyeball your fish - some of which are eyeballing back. Great... More

If you are in the Zenta area you could do worse than Kadena. The fish we had was fresh and tasty, the vegetables great except the boiled potatoes which I will not order again. It has a lovely setting and the wine selection was great. Did not find it as expensive as others have mentioned. Fantastic setting.

One of my favorite places in Split. Excellent food and very good service. Wide choice of wines, all Croatians. Location overlooking the port and the sea is really nice and if is not too full could also be quit inspiring. Even though is quite expensive pace for a city like Split I definitely suggest trying.

Just a short walk by the sea from the Radisson hotel. Contemporary interior with a great view over the sea. Excellent assortment of fresh fish. Had one of the best tuna steaks ever. We were a party of 9 with 5 kids 6-15 yrs old and no problem finding courses pleasing all. Friendly service

Were with a large group and restaurant managed pretty well to accommodate our various requests. Croatian top quality fish may be expensive, but most likely best in Mediterranean countries. We had John Dory, cuttle fish, shells and many other dishes, all of very good quality. Sommelier recommended a very good local wine. Pricey, but very good. Not so busy on... More

We entered the restaurant and were greeted by the owner, Mr. Bernard Krizhovic, a cloud of cigarette smoke and screaming. I suggested that we leave, but we stuck it out. Throughout the meal, over the almost rock concert level of music blasting, we were accosted with next room smoking and screaming. When I said something about the smoking, I got... More

We made a reservation. First when we arrived there they had my name written wrong and were confused about our reservation although the restaurant was half-empty. Here things started going down. First of all waiter did not know anything about wines he serves. We ordered one octopus salad as a starter and got two. It was ok but too much... More

Very nice place. You'll enjoy the food and the environment, but the prices will shock you. This restaurant is 50% more expensive than others.

This restaurant is about a 20-25 min walk from the promenade in the center of Split. Our fresh John Dory with Mediterranean vegetables both grilled were excellent. We asked for and receive an excellent glass of local white wine. The place was not crowded for lunch on a Saturday. Service was attentive. This place was pricey, but worth it.....not sure... More

After a great dinner the night before at Marjan our group (4 couples) were looking forward to dinning at Kadena as is was recommended by our guide who had also recommended Marjan. The restaurant features a lovely terrace over looking the water. On the night we visited there was only one other couple there and it was evident from our... More
