Perfect black risotto

All what was ordered was really good. Great gnocci and octopus salad. Mixed sea food was fantastic as well as cheesecake for desert. Dont forget to order home wine - excellent.

Got to this restaurant after checking trip advisor and was not disappointed. The food was excellent. The ambiance and service was also excellent. Would recommend this place to any visitor to the lovely town of Trogir .

Food at this place is excellent, so is their service. Menu hides some of the amazing food combination, all within the local variety, which surely is refreshing. Would you look for a restaurant in Trogir, do not miss Vanjaka!

We stumbled across this lovely restaurant looking for a light lunch. We both had chickpea soup (tasty and wholesome) followed by eggs & prsut with asparagus on toast. Very simple but a local dish to have at this time of year and was really nicely presented. Thanks for the water for our dog too. Would recommend and return. Thank you!

On a cold night this small restaurant really warmed us up with excellent food and great service and an atmosphere suited to the old Trogir town.

You know, TripAdvisor's advice is often disappointing, but this was an absolutely correct advice. Food was really great. We tried beef steak, grilled lamb and fish plate. All were fresh, delicious and cooked properly.

We were pleased with the cozy, quiet location of Vanjaka and our food was delicious. We had entrees of grilled lamb and grilled tuna w/ rocket and tomatoes. Both were cooked to perfection. However, the service was disappointing. We literally had to flag down our waiter whenever we needed anything. We found this to be unacceptable since we were there... More

I would strohgly recommend a seafood platter (which they call Hladni tris), a black risotto (Crni rizot s plodovima mora), home-made pasta (Fuzi) with prawns and truffle and grilled lamb, if you are a carnivour ;) By the way, if you are there on weekend, I would strongly recommend to book in advance. Definitely deserves a second visit!

The squid ink risotto is phenomenal! Easily one of the best risotto's I've ever had, and I've been to Italy a few times, and have never had risotto there as good as it was here. My Croatian seafood stew was also very good, though after the risotto it wasn't the star of the show. My brother also enjoyed his meal... More
