Little oil bar with snack and traditional meals from Croatia. Prices were ok, could be cheaper lil bit. Nice location. Would definitely recommend if you are in Split!

I went to UJE for New Year's Day with a couple of friends. Even though the restaurant is a bit tough to find, the food is really worth it. It's not something hugely unique, but the presentation and quality is top-notch.

A lovely, original place majoring on olive oil - you can even get ice cram with olive oil. Good though that was, what I'll really remember is the grilled calamari I had one night, and the WONDERFUL lamb cutlets I had on the second visit. Highly recommended.

I saw this restaurant from my guidebook and decided to go with my sister. The restaurant is located in relatively quite part of old town Split so it has nice atmosphere. It has cozy and nice ambience. The service was great that the waiter was good at recommending drink and food. We were not very hungry so we just ordered... More

Wonderful restaurant, atmosphere and cheese boards - alongside possibly the best tuna steak I've eaten in my life! We absolutely adored this restaurant, albeit a little more expensive than some of the other venues in Split - we should've gone back. Great service from the staff too, I can't rate Uje highly enough. Must try the Tuna if you're a... More

A good selection of food - especially local seafood. Went for the grilled tuna steak - Hummm delicious. All four of us had great... More

Uje oil bar is the popular restaurant although there is a tapas place across the street. Even better, slightly tucked away, is a wine bar that serves the same menu as the main restaurant. The ambience is stylish, the food cooked to traditional recipes with modern flair. The wine selection is extensive so relax and take a suggestion from your... More
