Ranked #3 of 536 Restaurants in Split

Restaurant details

Went last night and only got good things to say - food was exceptional, service was efficient and attentive (without being overbearing), and all in relaxed atmosphere.

Pork belly is as good as the reviews say, especially if you eat as advised (lettuce wrap) but the highlight was the monkfish cigare - truly exceptional and the best thing we have eaten in Croatia. Would highly recommend. The beef medallions were excellent too.

All washed down with a bottle or two of IPA (first time seen in Split) and a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

The atmosphere also made for a great evening, enhanced by the open kitchen so you can see all the food being prepared. All the staff made us feel welcome and we will definitely return when next in Split.

Keep up the great work guys.

First: Do not under any circumstances eat crab cake! It was absolutely BRUTAL. Overall, doesn’t deserve a place in the top 5 restaurants. Place where everything is between average and good.

Walked past Brutal quite a few times during our trip to Split and it always looked full with a good atmosphere. Booked to go on our last evening and had a really nice time. Had bruschetta to start which was a perfect size to share. I had the shrimp cake with salad which I really enjoyed. My husband had the seafood tagliatelle which he liked but felt it needed a bit more seasoning, otherwise was a lovely meal.
