The worst dinner innSplit! Frozen fish and veg. The waiter couldn’t care less. In addition they don’t charge the table cloth between clients. Terrible!

Konoba barkarola is a great locals spot. Overlooking one of the marinas. Has inside and outside dining. They are surprised to see tourists and very welcoming. The food is delicious. Highly recommend. Just google map and use an Uber

Location is great and we were able to park with little trouble but could imagine that there might be problems in the high season. There are different restaurants at different levels in the building and all seemed OK. We had a late lunch and the...staff were obviously tired so service was not that great but after so many good reviews we expected better. One of us had a. Pork steak in Mushroom sauce which was good. Pizza Margarita was not good and the dough was a bit soggy so not Neapolitan style - thin and crispy. Topping not great. My wife and I had muscles in Buzzaru sauce. To me a small portion and lots of sauce which was disappointing. House white wine was good. Overall, I would not come back here but would just about rate average.More

Stay away... Biggest tourist trap in Split!!!! Ordered a starter, did not have time to finish than the main course was already serve, they trying to squeeze 4/5 services in the evening, really pressuring you to pay and leave quickly (40 min from our arrival...to the moment we left) The food was extremely bad, and when the Waiter asked how was the meal, I told him : no offense, but not really good.. and he laughed and left to bring the bill. Leaving the place, we noticed than the ”mix grill meat” , with veal, chicken and beef was all together in a plastic box, RAW, near the grill. .... Extremely unpleasant experience!!!More

I don't know how this restaurant got so many good reviews maybe just because of the view which was OK, but not great. The food was really not good - I ordered pasta with salmon and shrimps. The sauce was disgusting and the seafood was...of course not fresh. I didn't eat even half of my meal. My partner order mix of meat - the waiter didn't even ask how do you want your steak to be cooked. The meat was not good at all. While leaving we have noticed that they keep all the row meat and chicken together which is against the general food hygiene. I strongly do not recommend to go to this restaurant.More

I'll start saying we had reservation and unfortunately very bad sitting place inside was too hot, we tried to switch tables but they kept making excuses why not to....Food was awful, I didn't enjoy the dinner at all and I woud not reccomend it to nobody. We went to a real dinner afterwards. Older weiter/server was very rude to us. This was in peak season, seems more like a tourist rip-off.More

We are a family of four who have been traveling through Croatia (Dubrovnik and Spilt) for almost two weeks. We have dined at many ‘local’ and well-reviewed / recommended restaurants. Our meal at this restaurant was terrible, as was the service. We sat for close...to 20 minutes before receiving menus, our order was taken, food was delivered and our waiter did not come back to the table until well after we had completed (or partially eaten) our meals. The chard - a staple of any Dalmatian meal - was soggy and salty. The monkfish in truffle was served on the bone, making it near impossible to discern flesh from anything else. One meal - the gnocchi was over-sauced and bland. The setting is pretty - hence the ones star - and we can understand why this is a tourist attraction for visitors, but the general area also felt unsafe as we were walking back to our car.More

The food is wonderfully done. High quality. Expecialy sea food and the meat. The view is good even in the night tho its better during the day. Staff is so much kind and helpfull. They really made my dinner special and will remember them. The...only "warning" I can give is that the prices are a bit higher then average but it makes up for it with quality in every department. In the end all I can say is that I will definetly go back to this place 10/10 easily one of the best restaurants in Split CroatiaMore
