Came here to enjoy a cheeky glass of wine and cheese platter. Ended up getting an amazing bottle of wine, the perfect 3 cheese platter to match and a meat board and bowl of olives. We felt very well looked after throughout our visit and the waiter was very knowledgeable and professional. The price was worth the wine and service... More

Our first night in split with some friends and couldn't have asked for a better spot to relax and catch-up. Not really the kind of place you go for a full meal, but was just what we were after. The meats from local regions was tasty and went deliciously with some of the local wine and cheese. Friendly staff made... More

What a fantastic find! The truffle cheese was delicious.. yes it was slightly pricy but it was worth it. The staff explained the wine and cheese and weren't pushy about what to order.. should be number 1!!

We picked this bar to have something light to eat and enjoy some local wines. Turned out a perfect choice. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly, giving us advice on the various cheese and ham selections and then suggesting good wines to go with them. Overall a wine-lovers delight. So, if you're looking for something a bit different from... More

If you want to have your wine served by friendly people who know their wines, this is the place to go. Situated away from the crowded Riva you'll find the calm to enjoy some nice glasses of wine, and maybe some cheese?

We stopped at this place an hour before dinner to enjoy a glass or two. And I am glad we did! These guys know their wine. Nice cheese platter that complimented the wine to! Loved it!

The staff are incredibly knowledgable (and patient!) about the wine and food on offer. We had platters of Croatian cheeses and cold meats. Both were delicious and accompanied with corresponding jams/honeys. We were on a budget so only had one glass of wine each but the staff didn't mind and helped us choose. Great for a light but gorgeous meal.

We ended up having extra wine and cheese after dinner every night at this place! The waiters were so friendly, and also gave you so much detail about the wine and cheese when they served it which made the experience extra special and enjoyable. We had the herb cheese platter which was delicious, and really generous in helpings. Generally, having... More

So I've realised after looking at my profile that I'm only writing reviews when things are good or great. So the fact I'm taking time to write this says something! I was recommended this bar by a friend who had visited Split recently. Then when I arrived at my apartmet here our host reccomended it too! So off we went.... More
