It was ok - a bit too much octopus for my liking and the mussels were a bit dried,but... read more

I fully agree with earlier reviews, seemed like tourist trap, ok if you get some quality for it afterwards. Absolutely NOT the case... My family and i hoped for a nice meal in historic Split, instead a very bad experience. Waiter was nice ... In the beginning... I orderped pasta with seafood (shrimps and salmon). When i got my dish... More

Very good quality of food, one of the best restaurant in the old Split. It's hidden in a beautiful small Plaza so you have to found it. But when you get there, you don't regret. As Vegetarian I was able to have some nice choices.

In the historical center of split. Perfect place to haunt tourists. Expensive for the horrible quality. I have doubt if the food was fresh. The waitress was nice, but pressured us to leave the table for the next prey.

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.

Had a great lunch at beginning of week served by amusing historical knowledgeable waiter. Good pizza, burgers, and lamb and potatoes. Went back at end of week for dinner but was disappointed with fish platter, mussels were not plump or shells closed, too much octopus for my taste, but fish delicious. Waitress friendly and went out of way to neighbouring... More

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
