About
After many years of working as a chef on cruise ships all over Dalmatia, and abroad, Zdravko Listes finally opened his own restaurant in the center of Split. Come find us at the beautiful downtown Split, Obrov ul. 8. near the fish market. Dishes that we offer are made based on the old nearly forgotten Dalmatian recipes with a modern touch by the chef Zdravko. Some of the dishes you can try are Octopus & Cuttlefish stew with fava beans, Croatian lamb stew with peas, Vlajshimi - Dalmatian sushi (Kale rolls with barley and shrimp), and many other daily made surprises.

We stopped in at lunchtime and reserved one of their few tables for dinner. Menu depends on what’s available fresh. I had roe deer and gnocchi, my wife had squid and fava beans. We wish we could have tried more dishes — they all looked...interesting and delicious. House red wine was great. Owner and waiter were delightful. Many years ago we stayed at a b&b in a village somewhere between Split and Dubrovnik and the owner made a very memorable meal just for our family. This felt like that — very special. Make a point of visiting this restaurant.More

To be honest, I was skeptical of this restaurant when we first saw it. Barley and fava beans are not traditionally in my main diet but I have to say that this was one of the best meals that I had in Split. The barley...with shrimp and squid with fava beans dishes paired perfectly together. We were so disappointed that we only tried this near the end of our trip! We would definitely have wanted to try the beef and fried fish dishes on another night. Additionally, this was a breath of fresh air when compared to the more expensive restaurants in Croatia. Reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. CASH ONLY!More

A very tiny restaurant serving local cuisine right in the old town and steps from the palace walls. Easy to find based on google maps. The staff were personable and very welcoming. There are only 2 tables inside and 2 small tables outside so I...would recommend trying to book, although we managed to get a table without booking. The menu consisted of 5 or 6 options, of which we tried 3 and all were very good! Would definitely recommend and I look forward to return.More

Location isn’t great but really good local food. Massive portions. Reasonably priced. Recommend if looking for something with a very local, authentic vibe.

Absolutely fantastic food. We ate at a number of good places in and around the fort in split and this was easily the best. Its best to order like tapas and share a few dishes. We were in a big group and ordered the full...menu and every dish was superb. The service was friendly too and prices were the most reasonable of all the places we visited.More

We were delighted! The owner, Zdravko, is clearly passionate about great, fresh, local food. We started with delicious, simple appetizers: marinated small fish, a wonderful salad full of fresh veggies with local cheese, slices of cheese plus pršut (the yummy local dried ham). Then we...had the fried mixed fish, squid with fava beans & beef stew. Plus a glass of the house white prošip, which went perfectly.More

We booked a table for Sunday lunch. Situated on a quiet street in town with a couple of tables outside. The menu is short and changes often depending on what’s available in the local fish market. The food is simple, unpretentious and incredibly tasty. We...had salted anchovy, marinated sardine, the fried fish platter (red mullet, hake & shrimp) and the house salad. Small but excellent choice of local beer and wine. We got chatting to the owner and waiter, who made our afternoon very entertaining, both interesting and funny guys. Definitely recommend this fun little spot!!More

In short, food is mediocre at best, the service is rude and lacks professionalism. The owner seems to be a very troubled man with an overinflated ego that acts like a child when faced with criticism. After receiving my food and finishing my meal I...told him that the establishment was missing a lot, to which I got some angry passive-aggressive mumblings and bs from him. I recommend you visit the restaurant on the opposite end of the street.More
