We had just arrived in Split, hungry, stressed from the driving...and found De Mar right on the marina. It looked a bit expensive....wide open to the gentle breeze, modernistic furnishing and an open kitchen...but the menu looked good and the wait staff welcoming.
We ordered...starters only with wine and water, and it was more than enough! The accompanying bread was hot from the oven, fresh baked and the local olive oil offered to soak was very tasty. Add the moveable feast of people watching, the sun going down over the sea and the lovely yachts....it doesn't get much better.
Reasonably priced wines as well and we had exactly what we wanted for a good price.
Yes, you can spend alot here...but you don't have to!More
We were there for dinner and it was just amazing. Food was delicious and all staff, our waiter especially, were spectacular. In combination with nice view to harbour it’s, in my opinion, unforgettable food experience. We will come back for sure!
*I told them in...the afternoon, when I was booking the table for dinner, that we are celebrating anniversary and I’d like to give my girlfriend rose. Staff managed all and in the evening was everything prepared for our celebratation!
Thanks for that!More
We had dinner here and went back the next day for lunch. I guess I could stop there and just say go.
For dinner we shared a nice bottle of Croatian wine recommended by the waiter. I has the ribeye and my wife had the...sea bass. Both were good but maybe the sea bass was better. I am pretty picky on steak and would ordinarily have a fillet. But flavors were good and sides were very good.
Service was very good.
For lunch we shared the carved ham appetizer and the wife had f mar summer salad and I had the smoked seafood pasta. Everything was very good.More
Classic tourist trap by the harbour. Good environment and location but that's it. The dishes were small and expensive. The waiter however was nice and friendly. Would not go here again or recommend anyone, maybe for a drink.
We ate here hours after arriving in Split, on the well-deserved recommendation of our VRBO host. The stunning walk along the waterfront did not hurt our appetites! I had a steak, which was good but not up to my American expectations (not the fault of...the restaurant at all). The place is seafood forward, but I don't eat that. My husband had the cuttlefish risotto, a Split specialty. He said it was delicious, but, as others have said, the portions were huge. Husband didn't want to finish, but the waiter kept coming over and good-naturedly teasing him about not finishing, so he kept eating (probably not the best idea, as it was very rich and we were pretty screwed up after flying all day!). My daughter had a homemade pasta dish with truffle oil, mushrooms and shrimp (the cutest, tiniest shrimp ever). She said it was amazing! Afterwards we went over to the bar, which was very cool and comfy with it's big white couches. Discovered that in Croatia, they don't usually list cocktails, but rather the brands of alcohol, so when we asked for cocktails they had no idea what we wanted. When we asked for a vodka with cranberry juice they said they could bring them separately but not mixed -- and then brought raspberry juice. It was fine, but we were unused to it at that point (after a dreamy week in Croatia we were completely used to it!). While not my favorite meal of our stay (again primarily because I couldn't eat their specialty), I would recommend the restaurant!More
We shared dishes like tapas and the food was good but some portions a bit mean. Would not serve tap water so ordered a bottle. Staff and atmosphere a bit pretentious, wouldn't go again as far better choices to be had elsewhere.
