We arrived late to Split and asked our apartmemt manager where to ear and he recommended Dir. The area is not great but it was close by. We were happily surprised as it was amazing. The food was excellent and very reasonable prices. Our waiter...was very helpful. Definitely recommend eating here.More

Made a special trip up to this restaurant having looked at the positive reviews. Sadly despite other reviews saying to not judge a book by its cover, we were very disappointed. The food was equally as rough as the location of the restaurant. Beef burger...was really poor, meat was gristly and overcooked, burger bun chewy and burger sauce watery and poorly flavoured, even the French fries were poorly cooked. My girlfriend ordered bruschetta which came out and was actually pizza. All very disappointing. The burger was sent back and I did not have the confidence to eat anything else they had on offer, so paid and left.More

The restaurant is located in a very run down and diapildated area which initially put us off but we decided to give it a try anyway because it was close to our hotel. Inside it is large and well furnished, a pleasant environment in complete...contrast to the outside. The staff were friendly and helpful. We only had a couple of pizzas but they were huge, of good quality with masses of topping and incredible value at only 8 Euro each. The bottle of wine we had was also good and relatively cheap. It's well worth taking the plunge and ignore the neighbourhood. Based on the number of reserved tables it's obviously popular.More

We didn’t expect much. Restaurant is located halfway between our hotel and Old Town of Split. But, although we did have to wait, for the order to be taken and the food to be served, what they served was really solid, and good price (...EUR 50 for 4 persons, including two courses each).More

What a lovely restaurant! The atmosphere was really nice and the inside of the restaurant was beautiful! Also live music, which was amazing! My partner had the mixed pizza. He really liked it! Good taste and good dough. I had the beefsteak, one of the...best ones I've had! It was super tender and delicious! Fries were also nice, not that crispy but still good! It was also not that expensive for what you get so super great! We really enjoyed eating here! Thanks Dir!More

Food is sometimes great and sometimes average. You never know what to expect. Service is nice but slow. Portions are really big, bigger than average I can say. But for me it is not worth one hour wait until food is on table and that...can happen when restaurant is not even full.More

We had the most incredible dinner at this fantastic restaurant. 4 huge appetisers and main courses, wine, soft drinks and sides all for less that £100! The staff were fabulous as was the service. Would most definitely go back!

Talking to a local man in Split old town, he recommended this restaurant which is a little walk from town but actually near our beautiful apartment . On approach we doubted his gushing praise as the exterior is a little scarey, almost down trodden. The...interior was very lovely and the staff could not have been more helpful. The menu was incredible and the prices really cheap. We ordered starters and mains not knowing the dishes were enormous ! Definitely do not eat anything the day you go here !!!!! Everyone enjoyed their food , especially the monk fish and pizza. Please walk the extra 10 mins to this place as was full of local people and had a great atmosphere, true Split.More

We booked a tabel at Đir restaurant and we had a great time! I wanted to eat good steak, my wife wanted pizza. Rumpsteak was so delicious, soft and tasty. Waiter, who was very kind and helpful recommended medium rare steak. Pizza was Picante, tasty...but peppers weren’t spicy as should be, but it was OK for me as I ate a little bit of pizza too. Nice domestic wine and good apetizers for opening were also great choice. Prices are all good, almost like in continental part of Croatia (this was at full season when prices are sky high). We’ll be back here for sure!More

They only have fresh fish, so it is hard to predict what they have in this momemt. If it is season of sardins they have grilled sardines
