“WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2015

This restaurant is simply the best among the best in Split! I've eaten here several times, with friends, with my family and never got disappointed. Fresh fish cooked in whatever way you prefer is a must here and make sure you leave some space for the local pancakes (palacinke) at the end of the meal. Would truly recommend it to everyone!

“Good but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2015

We fancied some fish. It was very well cooked, delicious but came rather expensive for what it was. Good soup. Pleasant waiter but seemed to be easily distracted.

“Recommended by a local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2015

The woman from whom we rented our apartment recommended this place and we had a lot of trouble finding it, so watch the map or guidebook carefully, as locals will just tell you to go down a street and turn left then right. Good luck with that. When we finally found it, we were pleased with the food, but it was darn pricey. Good, but expensive. Glad we went of lunch, which was a little less expensive.

“Monk-fish a la parisienne with tartare sauce and Swiss chard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2015

Place is nice, little rusty (just as one will expect on the Dalmatian coast), food is EXCELLENT, fresh fish every day, and they serve THE BEST (all around the world the best!!) monk-fish tail a la parisienne EVER (as a daily offer, which is cheaper than prepared differently). Tartare sauce is fantastic. Squids, shells, I class fish, II class fish, fish stews, fish sauces, bbq/grill, side dishes, appetizer, salads, everything is fresh, simply eclectic in your mouth, and what's important, reasonably priced. Haven't tasted but heard they offer variety of Mediterranean fruit brandy's with which you can start your meal :-) Excellent.

“Good but comes at a price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2015

Konoba Varoš offers sea food of a good quality, but do not expect to your meal to be a cheap one. House wine is good too. They stick to traditional way of preparation, so there will be no negative, but also not a positive surprises. If it is a rainy day, I suggest you take your umbrella with you inside. Somebody took my umbrella (not a cheap one) even restaurant was not crowded. Bucket is actually in front of the restaurant and not observed, so even someone from the street could take it. I do not blame restaurant, did not even bother to complain, just be warned not to leave it outside.
