“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Fantastic! The staff were patient with us even though we took some time deciding what to order. We ordered pasticada, mixed meat with cabbage, and batter fried squid. The food was heavenly, and it is definitely underrated on this website. They serve local food at affordable prices, not to mention that it was simply delicious. The waitress surprised us by holding so many plates at once! The portion is also huge. They help you pack it in aluminium foil boxes should you need it packed. Everything from the food to service was great, so I would highly recommend it. Definitely worth the price, and worth more visits!

“Cheap but not cheerful”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

I don't understand how so many people are writing positive things about his place. Other reviewers mention the big portions, but we found it to be big portions of food that we didn't really want to eat. Firstly I don't know why they bothered to give us menus, because when we placed our order we were told all they had was sea bass and squid. So we had sea bass and squid. The squid was greasy and unappetising with a load of greasy fries, The sea bass was average, and the potato slop it came with was pretty much cold and tasted like it had been sitting in a pot most of the day. None of what the other customers were eating looked any better. Service was unpredictable and bordering on rude. Don't be fooled by the apparent popularity of this place. It might be cheap, but it's not good value for money if the food is poor. Konoba Pizzeria Feral is a far better cheap place nearby, that importantly serves food you want to eat, and with a smile and a nice atmosphere.

“approved...”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

almost every time I came back to Split it's simply irresistibly to visit this place. Nonformal atmosphere, fresh food made in the traditional way, large portions, modest prices, are reasons for returning, despite crowd and unconfortable sits. This time we enjoyed in lamb stew..and we'll be back again.

“Home-made magic”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We've been backpacking Europe for weeks and I can easily say that this restaurant was the best we've found during our trip. Great food, big portions, traditional flavors, really cheap prices. The location was perfect as well and on top of that there was free & fast wi-fi available. The service was ok. Really a must-visit if you find yourself around Split, especially if you're on a budget.

“Awesome”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

We were told about Fife by the owner of our appartments and once we tried it we didn't go anywhere else. Very fresh tasty food, massive portions and low prices! What else do you need?
