We ate fish plate and had some good wine, and we were really happy with a quality that we get for the price we paid. I would certainly recommend this restaurant, the atmosphere is nice and al the staff was very friendly, and we will visit them again.

The food was fantastic, wonderful flavours. I can recommend the black risotto and Fillet of Pork. The wait staff were wonderful, really friendly and full of helpful information about Split. In a wonderful courtyard surrounded by Roman buildings. The toilets were clean, free wifi, highly recommended.

Excellent service, good menu choice and well prepared. Never boring sitting along a busy street hosting large groups of many nationalities, which is even for pedestrians one way.

We called into this restaurant on Sunday around 3 o clock on the off chance to see if they had a table for 2. Nobody was around in the entrance so we went upstairs. We caught the attention of a lady who had no people skills at all and was extremely rude and abrupt. She was so put out because... More

Food was not fresh. Ordered a bottle of wine which we thought we were getting their own mix,when we received the bill we found she bought out the $ 60.00 bottle which we did not order,and there was nothing we could do about it....

Don't waist your time and money here. The Bolognese had very little meat and was without Parmesan. The shrimp stew with green pasta tasted little and was served with regular spagetti. One was served 5 min before the rest of us.

Our experience was one of total frustration. We were approached by a young woman who asked if we would be interested in dinner and showed us a menu. It seemed alright so we decided to go. Before we proceeded I asked if they took credit cards. She assured me that they did . Once we reached the restaurant I again... More
