A return visit – or rather, two – to this lovely restaurant where sitting outdoors in the quiet square was still pleasant in mid-September, waited on by friendly and efficient young staff. The first evening we enjoyed excellent skampe na buzaru (which here translated as grilled langoustines without tomato sauce) and a grilled whole fish, with a litre of Posip... More

Impeccable service from the young man waiting on tables, he suggested a decent wine to have with dinner (it was one he was in fact having a glass of himself). The black risotto, wish it was a never ending plate! So very good. Excellent main meals in both quality and quantity. Very enjoyable dinner and I would recommend. I was... More

Very good local wine by the carafe and particularly nice Dalmatian ham which we shared as a starter. Steak was prepared just as requested and service was pleasant and efficient.

We have been disappointed overall with the quality-to-price ratio in Trogir/Ciovo Island. We tried a different restaurant highly rated by TA folks, and it underdelivered and was overpriced. But Vanjaka was a breath of fresh air: excellent food for reasonable prices. I was suspicious because of its extremely tourist-friendly location next to the cathedral, but I'm so glad we went...

Restaurant has a special set lunch menu with an attractive selection of local dishes . My favorite is Fried baby hake and red mullet. My friends ate lamb with peas, an old traditional dish that rarely can try elsewhere. Everything was fresh and tasty. I recommend if you want to try something local and traditional.

Obviously kept the best until last. This lovely restaurant is tucked away in the centre of the town walls. Lovely terrace with fab views, but as it is now getting colder in the evenings we decided to eat indoors. Ate upstairs by the open kitchen, so could see all being prepared. We are both meat eaters and had different dishes.... More

Our daughter recommended this restaurant for the first dinner of our holidays in Croatia. It was hard to find a table without a reservation in the middle of August, but we managed it. The food was very good, the black risotto even excellent, the lamb very tasteful. The combination of scampi and gnocchi was a little bit to liquid. Good... More

There were four of us and we looked for a place for dinner. Trogir is a very popular tourist destination and has many restaurants and pizzerias . We were attracted by two things: a menu with the appearance and content , and a terrace with a view of the bell tower of the cathedral . Really something special. The menu... More
