Description: Our small family restaurant is run by Father & Chef, preparing dishes that are passed on by his mother and grandmother. Our family lives in this neigborhood for more than 300 years. Blessed by the heavenly Adriatic, seafood is mainly our thing. As we depend on the weather working with fish, daily menu is flexible. Vegetables are bought on the bazaar behind the palace & the fish-market is 100m away. Even our wine & olive oil is made by local family producers. Enjoy traditional Dalmatian dishes in friendly atmosphere.. Welcome foodies!

I stayed in Split for 3 months and this Restaurant is by far the best I found here during that time:

The family runs this cozy Restaurant themselve and you can easily feel: they love what they do! The food they offer is always fresh and domestic and therefore varies from day to day. The konobar (son of the cook) gave us an overview about the today’s offer (if required in fluent English) and showed us a plate with all the fresh fish they bought on the market that day. He suggested some combinations of side dishes and in the end we got our very individual dishes. The taste of the food makes you really diving into Dalmatian's way of enjoying life's gifts.
The Restaurant is quite small, so I can imagine that it might be difficult to find a table in main season. However, if you succeed in snatching one, this is your chance to escape the mass touristic offers which are widely spread in the city.
If you are interested in best quality local food this place is a must!

My girlfriend and I were looking for a seafood restaurant during our time in Split and found this place through trip advisor. Right from the beginning we could tell this place was going to be good from the passionate recommendations provided by the waiter. We trusted his advice and went with the flow.

When our meal was served it was simply cooked but amazing, proving the importance of fresh ingredients (the chef must have been very skillful in knowing how to use those ingredients though). When we finished we both decided that it had been one of our best meals after 5 weeks in Europe. Not only was the food great but the service was fantastic.

I can understand that the restaurants style might not be to everyone's taste, particularly if you didn't want want seafood or wanted a large menu selection (we were told the menu is more of a "formality"). If this was the case I'd say then don't go to a seafood restaurant, but if you're after fresh fish in Split I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Our dining experience was just perfect. Being a Tuesday night, and fairly early, we had the place to ourselves. We were greeted by our charming and personable waiter, who showed us a selection of fish and squid that had clearly been bought at the local fish market that day. We chose our meals from the raw fish, which was then cooked to absolute perfection. My advice would be to just go there with an open mind and let the waiter give suggestions. Good value for money at around €50 for entree, two mains, dessert and wine. Waiter had the perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism. Would go back in a heartbeat if we weren't leaving Split!

Read about this place on tripadvisor and wanted to try it out.Was not disappointed...especially with the fish dishes that we had.
The best meal of our trip by far.A wonderful seafood platter shared between two of us.The fish was simply prepared but just melted in our mouths..and the house white wine complemented the food perfectly.The food was so good that we went back again for lunch.This time we were offered a traditional home-made dish called sarma (mince meat wrapped in cabbage) -another great choice with beef soup and amazing fried fish (whitebait or small sardines).
Don't miss this place if you happen to be in Split.It's quite a small place but has a very welcoming atmosphere and the smell of the food will drive you crazy while you wait!

Fabulous little spot just outside the palace. My friend ordered the squid ink risotto - I was jealous of him the entire meal. It was easily one of the best dishes we had the entire trip.

Great outdoor seating, good service, great food.
