This restaurant is situated on a nice location in the streets of Trogir. You should make a reservation for dinner. Prices are higher then in the area, and the quantity of the food provided is not significant (still hungry after 80kn vegeterian plate). Therefore, I would not recommend it, although quality is ok.

5 different entrees and all pretty amazing. Very shocking for in town - most restaurants I have tried on the island have been mediocre at best. What a relief to have a solid option in town. Bravo - much appreciated.

''Small file in truffle sauce on a bakery potatoes'' - oh, my God! ''The cold Tris Vanjaka'' - simply the best cold appetizer that I have ever tasted. We sat in the large terrace next to the cathedral, and the view is breathtaking.The young waiter was very nice and helpful. We came a bit late (around 10pm), so it was... More

This has to be one of the most popular restaurants in Trogir and we decided to go there on a Friday night without having made a reservation. Fortunately, as we arrived and asked for a table, they had just taken a cancellation and we were able to be seated immediately. All the other tables were either taken or had "reservation"... More

We visited twice and had excellent food both times including the octopus salad, calamari and the beef pasticada . The waitress was very helpful and friendly. Next door is a small cocktail bar which featured live music which was great to listen to whilst eating in the lovely square where the restaurant is situated away from the crowds in the... More

Second visit, couple of years apart, and we were not disappointed. Lovely setting just off main thoroughfare inside the city walls. Had best steak ever on our visit, absolutely "melt in the mouth". Service isn't the fastest but whole atmosphere is so laid back that it is not a problem at all! Recommended for a visit.

Vanjaka has the best food we found in Trogir. The outside garden is of course beautiful, as are all the other garden restaurant, but this restaurant also serves great quality delicious food. The service is also good, although I witnessed the owner asking quests to sit at a smaller table and getting rather unpleasant with them and refusing to sit... More
