We travelled to Split as a part of our honeymoon in Jun 2016. We have two very different experiences from two different dinners at the restaurant. Would have liked to have given a higher rating but the "average" rating reflects our disappointment in our second experience, as we had an exceptional experience the first time (i.e. higher end restaurants should...

I have heard for this restaurant for years, due to the its couisine chief Braco Sanjin, but I have never been. On the way to island Hvar, I had 2,5 hours of free time in Split, and by phone, decided to visit, as they promised me, to drive back from Kadena lunch to the ferry in Split harbor! View from...

Easy to get to and a wonderful view, the restaurant is set up nicely for open air dining and gets crowded the later you go. the salted sea bass was wonderful, the croatian wine selection was plentiful and good. overall a good meal but felt that they had preferred local clients and put on a touristy show with the special...

It is a fairly windy and cold August, so eating outside was not fun. We had a table inside. Few items on the menu were not available eg oysters. We had a Seabass baked in salt. It was very nice. We have tried many wines by the glass which were all local, had to settle for something which we could... More

We loved it all, - from the sommelier and the croatian wines, the waiter who came with the " todays catch" of fish, to the very fine food we chose, yes the view to the islands, the atmosphere, and no loud disco, just a gentle live classical guitar playing.

Great view and quiet location, car parking a little awkward. Food and service were great, staff knew what they were talking about and regards the fish, Red snapper worked very well for me. View overlooks marina to the north of Split. Would go again.

It is not often you can combine a delightful view with excellent food. Kadena hits all the senses in the best possible way. Furthermore, the talent of the chef is combined with those of the sommelier who really knows his stuff. This is not a place for back packers but if you want to savour your food, wine and the...

Nice view and excellent food. The staff recommended what to eat and that was good choice. Hyvä mukava ruokapaikka kivalla näköalalla. Tarjoilijat eivät ". kiirehtineet" joka hieman miinuksena mainittakoon . Hyvin ystävällistä palvelua ja kala-ateria jonka söimme oli todella hyvä !

Visited this restaurant early one evening we were seated quickly and handed menus. The waiter asked what we would like to drink and I asked for a bottle of still water and the wine list. Whilst reading the menu the waiter arrived with two complimentary starters? At this point I asked again about wine and was told the Sommelier would... More
