We came here on our last night after a recommendation. It was early (5:30 ish) and so all was quiet ; however if you come later then it does get really busy, and it's easy to see why. The food, location and service are all of the highest quality. ( I had the steak and my girlfriend has the lamb.... More

This restaurant is a treasure if you want to have extraordinary quality away from the standard tourists' eat and go huts. Service is excellent and price is fair for what you get. I had broiled beef in a dark wine sauce with gnocci and I was close to lick the dishes for the wonderful taste. The wine selection talks for... More

Menu is varied and interesting, lots of fishes I'd not seen before in Trogir/Croatia. I had the sea bass which was delicious! Decent portions, but definitely on the pricier side (but worth it!). Dinner for 2 with a dessert each and a cocktail and prosecco was 500 kuna.

We had a fabulous meal here on the last night of our holiday. The cocktails were excellent as was the wine which was a local one. We had excellent service despite the restaurant being busy. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, recommending dishes when asked. Everything we ate, and we all had different dishes, was very well presented, cooked perfectly,... More

After reading reviews we went for dinner here, luckily we got a table without booking. Great setting away from the busy streets, attentive service and tasty, well presented food. I had the tuna and it was perfect. Beef-Steak was meant to be medium but slightly more well done when it came. Would recommend for a special meal out.

We ate here three times during our fortnight visit to the Split / Dalmation coast and this was our favourite restaurant. There are two outside seating areas in small courtyards close to the cathedral. The owner and all the waiters were very friendly and the food was fantastic. There is a great fish selection and we particularly enjoyed the swordfish... More

Restaurant Vanjaka is a respectable member of the Trogir gastronomic family. It is situated on the Radovan Square, in the east part of the town, right by the Saint Lawrence cathedral. Classy, sacral and aristocratic architectural surroundings have set the standards of this place high and it was a real challenge to meet them. Vanjaka is a contemporary home to a traditional dalmatian cousine and wine. Freshness, local origin and optimal nutritional value are the strict criteria by which we choose groceries to make the meals from our menu. Seasonal fruits ripped in nearby gardens, fish caught from small fishing boats of Trogir and meat from locally raised animals are combined professionally and with love. Meals made by recipes with a hundred year tradition in the Vanjaka restaurant can please the gourmand taste of a modern guest, and the wine card offers a variety of Croatian wines.
