We flew over from America and arrived in Split after changing flights in Munich, tired and hungry! We checked in our room at Palace Suites and after a short rest we went out to find dinner. Our hotel had a great location within the walls of the Old Palace, close to the Cathedral. We very, very fortunately stumbled on Element, which was located down a romantic alley, close to our hotel. The staff was great, and helped us in our selection of many choices. We had octopus salad which was very enjoyable and then the sea bass which was great! Our waiter was so kind and in conversation recommended that we travel to the island of Brac for sight seeing. We took his advice and after a pleasant day we looked forward to returning to Element to share our experience. We truly couldn't explain how wonderful it was, let it suffice to say that do to the great food, the attentive staff and the kindness which was extraordinary of the owners Tony and Mario Element Restaurant became our home away from ome. We couldn't recommend it higher and we can't wait to return!
