“Good beach place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We took a break from the beach and we were surprised by the good food. We did not get seafood but standard pasta and pizza dishes were tasty. Our waitress was very attentive and sitting on the beach was nice. Not fancy but fun.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Went there today based on eave reviews from trip advisor. Should have listen to the few ones that said "dont be fooled..."
To be fair, the location is awesome and our waitress was very honest, friendly and attentive. We asked if the seafood was fresh and she honestly said "no, we get too busy with limited staff. It is frozen." I tried the calamari anyway and she was right. Very bland and "so-so." Unfortunately, even the pizza seemed frozen and bland.
Would I go back? Not for the food.... For a drink and to see the amazing view? Yes.....

We are sorry to hear about Your experience. Unfortunatly all pizzerias in Split, by the sanitary law, must have frozen sea food, restaurants that have fresh sea food must have the whole seperate kitchen area for fresh fish and are at least 3 times more expensive in price min 130kn per person.

On the other hand the pizzas are one of the best in town: the dough is freshly made at least 3 times a day and we use real cheese and other fresh ingridients. So it could not be seeming frozen;) we got compliments from italians who said that the pizza here is better that in Venecia;) and very good value.

Let us thank You Your time and comment!

Stopped for breakfast. Complete including choice of coffee or juice eggs bacon fries toast all for 30 kuna about 6.00 USD
Sits on water edge, pleasant helpful waitress.
First girl I asked if they took bankcards
THEY DO NOT
That empty stare I had not seen since the
60's
I was told where cash machine located --
not the point-exchange rate but did not go there. And ate here anyway
No regrets!!

“Great summer location and food OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you can get a good seat outside under the shade (it can be full of patrons) then it is an ideal setting to kick back, have beer and pizza and watch the boats and swimmers.
