About
It is a restaurant in the center of Split, locally known as a must visit place. Great interior decoration, in the front terrace and Roman terrace, is just one of the reasons why you should enjoy the traditional Dalmatian food here. Join us enjoying life! A restaurant with a soul and friendly atmosphere, with a great team of women & men, making little miracles with fresh and seasonal groceries every day. Try some of the best Croatia has to offer & enjoy Croatian wines-more than 101 of them! This is the place where you can try famous PEKA - unique dish of Dalmatia! The best thing is to sit after the whole day exploring the city, have a glass of wine and take a breath of true history, enjoying
