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

Freshest fish all caught especially for the restaurant. Served simply but so delicious that half a lemon was enough. The sea bream and calamari were excellent and portions very generous. The service was perfect and we had everything we asked for. Many locals were eating here which completes the story.

Our favorite restaurant in Split. This is a restaurant that you must try, for the excellent food for sure, also for the service and for the beautiful sea breezes & view. Our server, Ivo was friendly, professional, knowledgeable & attentive. We have been coming here for years when visiting Split & have always enjoyed our experience. I read several negative... More

Restaurant which everybody was mentioning as top 5 in Split but after visit I don't share opinion. Food was good and ambient was OK but service was very bad. Waiter was so cold with minimum communication. Table next to us was two foreign businessmen and the waiter was speaking very bad English.

I come here often, I have visited lot of restaurants in Split, but non of them have quality of this one. Yes, it is pricey, but they are offering fresh and quality ingredients in relaxed enviorement. Try tunna carpaccio or fresh fish and you wont regret it. Huge wine list as well.

Great position and sea view. Food was good but nothing special. Service is average. Waiter was uncommunicative and cold. Service could be a bit more professional for this kind of restaurant and those prices.

The food was a disaster, lamb chops were raw and stake ordered was overdone. Waiters and cook should coordinate, we ordered carpaccio for apetizer it was tasteless, and the waiter didn't give us time to eat it properly and enjoy it. He came to are table twice and practicly forced us to stop eating it, and brought the main course... More
