About
Finding a unique place among many restaurants and cafes where food and drinks can please your palate is priceless. One of such places is surely the restauran -cafe Bajamonti, located in one of the most intriguing Mediterranean squares, Prokurative. It was named after one of Split’s most meritorious mayors, Antonio Bajamonti who, in 1859, built the most modern Dalmatian Theatre of the 19th century, today’s restaurant-cafe. The interior of the restaurant – cafe with carefully selected paintings from the cinematic past bears witness to its past. Wanting our guests to feel as comfortable as possible, every detail was carefully chosen; the flowers on the tables change with the changing of the seasons. In winter, you will be welcomed with poinsettia, and in spring and summer, flowers whose colours will surely brighten up your day. The restaurant-cafe Bajamonti always offers more.

Nice environment and amazing singer making it a beautiful place to have dinner. Food disappoints. We had the truffle burger with no truffle and the meat was over cooked, the fries were frozen ( worse than Mac Donald’s). The Italian pizza was done with the wrong flour ; look was good but the texture and consistency wasn’t. Cheese quality was sub par. We had some wine and the glasses come half empty. I think that you get 100 cc when you order a wine by the glass. Really disappointing.

During one of our tours we noticed this plaza to the west of the Palace that was a bit less rushed and quieter that featured about four restaurants and made a note to check it out later. It's actually three restaurants and a bakery. Bajamonti is an Italian place in the middle of the others and had decent reviews so we stopped in. Although the outdoor seating is just umbrella tables in the plaza, they did a good job of making it attractive by aligning tables in neat rows and putting illumination at each table. We were seated in the middle of the outdoor area and our server stopped by momentarily. We started with a seafood appetizer, a cocktail, and followed with a pizza and the monkfish. There's an early faux pas as the seafood ravioli appetizer appears, looking beautiful, but revealing icy middles as we took our second bites. This is akin to an illusionist mishandling the curtain and letting the audience see how the trick is done (the trick in this case being, how to serve hundreds of people each night with some efficiency - you do it by having some items premade or perhaps pre-bought). I can't fault the restaurant for taking a few efficiency shortcuts, it's simply an attempt to garner an advantage in the dreadful battle of logistics. This is hardly the only restaurant that does it, and it's not claiming to be a Michelin place, the food comes in sufficiently large portions to disqualify that (a joke, please forgive a bit of levity). The server manages the incident with aplomb, apologizing and working to replace the dish, and offers a complimentary round of drinks. My partner refreshes her cocktail and I order an Ozujsko, a native beer that is pleasant and helps to pass the extra time. The rest of the meal goes according to schedule and the monkfish is very good and my pizza "Boshkarin" is also good. My partner is somewhat offput by the pizza's dried meat protein, but I find it tasty and the pizza's truffle flavor very different from what I'm used to in the US. The crust is soft throughout (this seemed common in Croatian pizzas I tried both here and at the vaunted Bokamorra down the road. Only Gust featured a crispier crust.). Despite the hiccough, I was pleased overall we really enjoyed the meal in this plaza. The U shape opens to the south and gives just a glimpse of the sea, but shields diners from much of the noise of the old town and the promenade. We didn't dine indoors, but the pictures look very nice and I think would come here again.

We went here based off our Air BnB host recommendation. Food was lovely I had the chicken dish with lentils and my partner had the burger. They had run out of the rib eye unfortunately. The staff were very slow however and not very welcoming. After finishing our mains we wanted desert and another drink but after waiting 30 minutes to get a waiters attention we got up to pay the bill which is a shame

Our hotel recommended Bajamonti for our night of arrival dinner - usually I do more research on where we eat but honestly we were too tired after a day of hitting the ground touring. The restaurant did not disappoint. Our food was fabulous, waiters relaxed and helpful, and wine delicious. We had a great view of the sea and sunset that capped off our dinner.

Really good samon burger. After some fiasco with burgers in other restaurant we tried fish burger and it was very tasty. It was filled with big piece of salmon (not some mixed fish that you can find in other restaurants). The price was good, definitely recommend this place.

Out of this world! We ordered a bottle of Malbec (which was gorgeous) to compliment a charcuterie and cheese board which I shared with my partner. The cheese and the various meats where absolute delicious and the presentation just goes to show how much love and time was put into the board which we recognised. I wish I had got the waiters name as he was professional and couldn’t do enough for us. Definitely the nicest place in Split to go and enjoy lovely food and amazing drinks. 100% recommend

First stop here was just for coffee, and the service was friendly and the price reasonable. We decided to return for lunch later, which we didn't regret. The picantusha pizza's were freshly made and utterly delicious, and once again the service was super. We returned the following night for dinner. My husband had the tomato soup, and I had the octopus salad which was to die for. Followed by what my husband described as the best burger he had ever eaten, and I had the duck, which was perfectly cooked and delicious. The interior of this establishment is also stunning, and the toilets clean. I can't recommend it highly enough

Loved the ambiance of this place and the location was perfect as it was away from the crowds but still has a view of the sunset. Servers were very nice and welcoming. My gf and I got their Margherita pizza and lobster and shrimp on black noodles/pasta. I loved my pasta tho it was on the saltier side, but the pizza was unfortunately too soggy and not warm enough. Really appreciate the service and location here above all, but also would try the cute restaurants to the sides of it the next time! :)

Ended up eating here twice as we enjoyed it so much. Food was nice (recommend the chicken dishes and pizzas!) but the atmosphere was just so friendly. It was a top notch location where you didn't feel you were being rinsed for money. Very reasonable. Will return next year!

We walked in for an early dinner. Environment was good as outdoor facing the sea. We ordered fish stew gregada and monkfish fillets for main courses. The fish stew gregada tasted good, but the monkfish fillets just so so. Overall, not really of find that delicious and good as other reviews stated. Service was good. We settled our bill by credit card. They did have a standard on tips. You need to choose one from the 4 options (8%, 12%, 20%, missed one) on top of your bill.

Our first bad meal of the trip. We had been so lucky with great dining options from Rick Steves up until we got here. First, we were informed the wifi wasn’t working despite seeing a few networks with their name available. No big deal though. The burger I ordered was 23€. It was one of the worst burgers I’ve ever had. They use frozen pre-formed meat. You can tell because it looks like the cheap frozen meat you buy at the grocery store. Didn’t come with bacon as advertised as well. Small too. Hardly the quality one would expect for that price. Service was below average. Skip this place.

Decided to visit Bajamonti with a couple of friends at the peak of the season (make reservations!). Great location and excellent staff. Ordered the ragu with homemade gnocchi as appetizer - simply delicious. The gnocchi are small and fluffy, not making you feel too full afterwards; the ragu tasted great as well. For our main course we had the aged T-Bone steak which was grilled medium rare to perfection and tasted amazing. Simply the best steak I had in Split and a great experience all around. Highly recommended!

The experience for all 6 of us was amazing. We were greeted promptly and shown to a table. Our amazing waiter, (sorry didn’t get his name), came shortly after to take our drinks order. We ordered a mix of food as our group ranged in age from 7-74, child’s pasta dish, pizza, chicken dishes and a couple of steaks, one of which was a 1.25kg tomahawk. All the food was fabulous, cooked to perfection, you know when you are enjoying your meal so much you want your loved ones to experience it? So we were passing food across the table to share. However the best part was the service, our waiter really looked after the youngest of our group and built an instant report, even showing him the kitchen when we mentioned he wanted to become a chef. Amazing experience and thank you so much for looking after us.

This is definitely a very touristy place but the food is good. the pasta portions are quite small but everything else had very good portions. The place has a nice atmosphere and the staff is very nice but the only bizarre thing is that dishes come out at different times so if you wish to wait for all the dishes to come out, your own may become cold. On the other hand, we have noticed this is something very common at many restaurants so maybe this is common in Split. Overall an enjoyable touristy experience which is good for a one-off.

Food is lovely, soup was delicious and the steak was tasty as well. The staff, however, left a lot to be desired. Service was slow, even with three waiters, hostess, and about 20% of restaurant capacity.
