“Nice one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Cosy small wine bar, with very helpfull stuff. Nice outdoor area in center of Split. Service was very polite and understanding, only thing that ruined our great evening was a dirty toilet, probably from some guest before us. So thats the only reason I am not giving highest rate!

Over 1000 wines. All food and wine is locally sourced. Each has its own story and the waiters are happy to explain. Highly recommend.

“Fantastic wine and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Only got time for a quick review - the wine that has been selected is amazing (especially the roxanich Chardonnay!) the Croatian cheese board was delightful and the server was amazingly helpful, explanatory, cheerful and attentive. Going back tonight that's how good it was!!

“Fun place in Old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

While I don't think this is deserving of the #1 spot on TA in Split it was very enjoyable. I'll disclose that I'm not a wine drinker but I did enjoy the sweet muscat. My family enjoyed the wine but had better in Zagreb. However, the cheeses and charcuterie were great. I suggest getting the platters. We tried the pag platter which had a great selection of local cheese. I suggest also getting the truffle cheese which was local and excellent. The charcuterie platter had a nice mix of Dalmatian and istrian procuitto and iberico ham. We also had the Dalmatian bacon which I think was the best. The service was good and our waiter was very informative. Overall a nice change of pace from your typical restaurant and a good location in the old town.
