It is easy to understand the overwhelming popularity of this fine Trogir restaurant. We headed for a beautiful inner courtyard for dinner only to find that it was fully booked for the entire evening. We were escorted to a rooftop terrace across the street, where we had simply superb service and a very satisfying meal at completely reasonable prices. Alka... More

In reading all of the previous reviews, yes, you are going to pay more in a tourist town like Trogir compared to somewhere off the coast, but that's often the reality of how restaurants and hotels charge when it comes to tourist areas. We had a nice rooftop meal (not brilliant, but not bad) - I had steak and my... More

Turist trap, made to look good and for good sell (and expensive), but not worth it at all. Me and my husband went couple of times at Alka and finally decide to not go there anymore, because of several things: first time I had a wonderfull fish, but a meat for my husband was terrible. Second time the fish was... More

We sat in the downstairs courtyard for our first visit. The taster was very much appeciated (this seems to be the norm in a lot of Croatian restaurants) and we both chose the lamb cutlets. Our waiter said that this would be a good choice for the month we were there (June) because it was still serving spring lamb but... More

I guess Alka is especially famous for meat, but I had black cuttlefish risotta followed by grilled trout. The risotta was interesting but made this a 5-star meal was the excellent trout and the wonderful service. The waiter managed, in a very gracious and non-patronizing way, to show me the art of deboning the intact trout, which was delicious but... More

An excellent find in Trogir. The restaurant itself is away from the busy street but the waiters show you the way through. W had two course, both excellent, and beer and the bill was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and went there one evening. The service was fantastic. We were helped through the menu by a very nice and humorous waiter. We had beef and stuffed calamares, which was among the best we have had in Croatia. Afterwards we were served liqueur on the house.

We have visited Alka restaurant with the group of 7 sailing boats and everything was perfect. Nice starters and main dishes and very nice staff - professional and very kind. Thank you all people there.

Two or three points, that was in the end the question... The good mussels and french fries cannot compensate the bad service of one waiter at this price range, I am sorry! The prices are really high here and what you get for it is just standard, compared to many other restaurants in Dalmatia that we have visited. I do... More

Poor service. Main courses rushed out as soon as starter plate was cleared. Ok food. I had chewy veal and extremely dry salad dressing. I wanted coffee and deserts but after 30 minutes of waiting we decided to leave. Had far better this holiday.
