“Great food. Great price”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Cool little restaurant with lots of atmosphere and charm. Great selection of seafood and local cuisine at prices hard to beat. Expect to share tables as the place fills up - but this adds to the fun. Popular among locals and tourists alike.

“Domestic food in a restaurant”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

At first sight dirty and ugly, but after you make an order it suddenly becomes homelike, friendly and cousy. Just befor finishin the meal you ordered you tell yourself "I won't try any other restaurant in Split". The prices are low even for Croatian standard (Allmmost any meal around 7 euros).
Fife is great

“Excellent price and good quality food”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

I had dinner with my husband here and the food was unpretentious but really good. A major plus was the cost which is considerably lower than other restaurants in the area. The atmosphere was also quite nice and familiar, although it was really crowded.

“Local place with average food, but big portions”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

I was recommended Fife by the hostel receptionist. She suggested the pasticada, a type of Dalmatian beef stew in sauce served with potato gnocchi (55 kuna, not including drink). My food arrived room-temperature. It had good flavor, but wasn't as good as what I expected. I struggled to finish the portion alone. It's nice to sit outside if the weather is nice, they also have ample space indoors in two different buildings. Locals do visit this restaurant.

“Very few dishes available - not great value.”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Unfortunately we followed the raving reviews, only to find a much lesser of a place to rave about. The setting is really cute and simple, nice atmosphere. We ordered two different mains, unfortunately as it was winter, hardly anything is available. Including vegetables?! Reassessed our options, went with the seafood pasta and the grilled fish.
The pasta was so disappointing. It wasn't fresh seafood! Now we have walked past the daily fresh fish market, and Split is right on the coast - so for the price, of course we expected fresh seafood. But it was PACKETED processed seafood?! Served in a cheap penne pasta, with a tomato sauce. The grilled fish is a whole fish, which is nice. I thought I was just ordering a grilled piece of fish, but once you pick the bones out, it's nice. Not worth the price though.
The young girl behind the counter could do with a hug. Didn't smile once, no friendliness there at all, but the older woman was really lovely.
I wouldn't recommend this place.
