I took grilled tuna with vegetables. It was really great! For entry we took cheese and Prosciutto with olives. Delicious combination. The atmosphere here is very cosy and the restaurant is quite hidden, no traffic disturbs. We will go back again for another visit. The restaurant was so popular we recommend you to book a table.

A must for dinner. A 5 minute walk from LeMeridien. Delicious seafood, pasta and salads. Great house wine. Wonderful staff. Affordable prices. Nutella crepes for dessert can't be missed.

We ate there once and our experience was good. Good and friendly service accompanied with good food. One thing to mention is the fish carpaccio that we ordered as a starter. It was more a marinated fish soaked in vinegar and oil than carpaccio. We then ordered fish platter for 2 and it was good. We stayed longer than expected... More

A very good local restaurant, situated near Le Meridien Hotel. Service was very attentive, seafood was fresh and of high quality. They have some very good Croatian wines on the wine list, the rose was particularly good. There's a nice friendly atmosphere, and I will definitely return.

Reasonable prices, great quality authentic Dalmatian dishes and also top service! A bit of a way out from Split but if you are staying in Podstrana then this is a must. My partner and I had Black cuttlefish risotto and bloody Mary spaghetti, both uniquely Croatian and really nice!

Excellent food and service. The place is secluded which works in it's favor although one misses the sunset.

Arkada has a large hoarding advertising it, but when we went through the door it was a mystery trip actually finding the place! . Beautiful restaurant with a lovely outdoor eating area surrounded by vines and flowers. The menus was very varied, steaks, fish, pasta, pizza, seafood all in a variety of styles. We had scampi and champagne risotto and... More

Service was friendly, food was fine. Only our main dish was already there 1 second after we finished the appetisers. Literally we were still eating the appetisers and our main desert was already waiting for us. At least leave some time in between, this felt kind of like we had to rush or something... Again, food was ok and staff... More

Chicken in prune sauce was lovely. Wine is good too. Nice setting and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend if staying in Podstrana (Nice clean toilet facilities too!)

Famous gastronomic location in Split - Arkada restaurant is located in Podstrana, above hotel Lav, a few kilometers away from the center of Split. Here you can enjoy in good kitchen and excellent service, which are worth every kilometer travelled. Restaurant manager and chef, Bogdanovic Miro, will always welcome you with a new dish, which he did not even managed to include in the menu.
