DeListes Restaurant


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

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.

Excellent food and charming staff! We visited DeListes two times - the fried fish was extraordinary! Everybody should pay this restaurant a visit when in Split!

This is a great place to taste some delicious fried fish and shrimp, stuffed peppers and pasta (these we tried). It's true they don't accept credit cards but it's clearly stated on the menu so no problem for us. We shared the long table with...More

One of our favorite restaurants in all of Croatia. Very relaxed atmosphere, great food and drink. A short menu with lots of variety ensures they are all great dishes! Great house wine and fab service. Cute and small- perfect place!!!

Foods are tasty. Owner does not let us order what we need, worrying the portion might be too much. We couldn’t have as enough as we wanted. credit card not accepted. cash only.

This hole-in-the-wall offers the best authentic Croatian cuisine we’ve had so far during our two weeks travelling through Croatia. The waiter and boss of the place is a no nonsense kind of guy whose attitude is much appreciated considering the sometimes flimsy tourists trying to...More

One of the few restaurants in Split that offers complimentary bread, but on top of that, the food was great. Seafood was fresh, although the menu is small but the fried fish rotates depending on what the fresh catch of the day was. In our...More

Don’t go there if you want a big choice between many options. But go there if you want real Dalmatian food cooked as if it you where at home. Simple but delicious, I can only recommend..
