Excellent food and service - especially the crab and prawn risotto. Toni was our waiter and he was the perfect balance of attentiveness and leaving us alone to enjoy our meal. Excellent wines. We sat inside as it was a bit cold but outside was...much nicer - would recommend a table outside if possible. Would definitely come againMore

The guy new his wine!! We had the Caesar salad, it was delicious. Super fresh, made right in front of us. A bit pricey, but feels worth it.

Amazing experience, first class service and extremely attentive staff. Food was fantastic, I had the steak and my partner had the monkfish, both highly recommended. The chocolate dessert was incredible! Only fault is the calibre of this restaurant leads to a certain type of people...to attend (loud, obnoxious sort) the tables were quite close together and the table next to us were noisy and irritating, but that’s not the fault of the restaurant. The location is amazing, in the heart of the old city, but tucked away in a hidden courtyard. Certainly worth a visit when you’re in split! I’d advise to pre book!More

We were so lucky to get the last 2-top before 10pm - I would recommend a reservation! We loved our server Toni who was so friendly - the salads especially the table side Caesar were to die for!! I had the saffron risotto and my...husband the sea bass - we shared and both were delicious. Lovely atmosphere. If you are coming to Split don’t miss this place.More

Ambiance was fantastic, food was fresh and flavorful and delicious and I am not exaggerating when I say our waiter Toni was one in a million. Steered us to the best of the best on the menu and the wine list, laughed at our witty...banter and very professional, friendly and fun. Could not recommend more highly.More

We had dinner for 2. The starters, main dishes (salad and pasta) were amazing and the portion were quite big. The atmosphere is elegant and the staff is extremely kind and professional. The best part were the deserts: absolutely beautifully served and delicious. The quality/price...ratio is way above average. Would definitely recommend to go here for a semi chic dinner.More

Contact the restaurant directly, we visited the restaurant while there and made a booking for the following evening but definitely book as it tends to be rather busy.
