Make sure to make it to the restaurant before sunset, because the view from the terrasse is formidable. While enjoying a drink, we choose our dinner from a selection of fish and seafood. The waiter is professional and quickly senses the tone of our group. The fish and clams are all prepared as simple os possible - quickly seared or... More

We were in a group of 25 people and had a 5 course dinner. The food was amazing but it took a lot of time between courses. The staff was organized and helpful. The broken wheat and smoked see food dish was amazing.

We ate here for a business dinner and dined on the terrace. The service was outstanding! Fantastic food too. Had the ravioli to start and steak for main. White chocolate and raspberry dessert was the waiters recommendation for dessert and it was out of this world!

Really nice and well designed restaurant with a great view over a marina. Excellent wine recommendation and nice and helpful staff. The food was below average: We had two starters and two pasta-dishes. The carpaccio starter was great. The rest didn't match the location, atmosphere and prices. One pasta was way over-salted, the other had so much truffle-oil in it... More

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
