Service is realy a 5*, very very knowledgeable; but the wine is a bit too expensive! We were there for dinner so the atmosphere and romance was amazing.

Great spot in the heart of Split (just behind the National Theatre). Marko was our server and he paired the cheese to the wine spectacularly! Everything was great! But perhaps a little overpriced.

We ordered some local cheeses and jams: absolutely delicious. Sadly they did not have a tasting menu (expected in such a place really, especially compared to similar venues... More

This place was recommended to us by the owner of D'vino wine bar in Dubrovnik. We visited here and enjoyed the cheese, jam and olive pairings with the local wines. Excellent choice, is located in the old city of Split. Don't miss this. On a side note, they had a great display of wine corks in the front counter.

It was fabulous. This was not our first visit to this restaurant, but this was the best visit. Trilogy of cheese from three different countries together with red Croatian wine made the evening perfect. Sitting inside was a better choice.

We visited on a quiet Friday night in November. We were the only customers in the bar... However the service, food and wine were amazing.. We actually felt lucky for it to be that way. You could only imagine this place in summer... We will return to check it out! Make sure you try the Paradox trilogy (cheese platter), with... More
