We ate here every morning on our holiday between 26th May and 2nd June.

This is the site of the restaurant known formerly as the Black Cat which it is still marked as on some maps, however having eaten previously at the Black Cat when we visited 6 years ago, there has been no drop-off in quality, and there is now an overall Mexican theme to the restaurant.

We had breakfast there every day and tried the ham and cheese omelette, the breakfast burrito, the Dalmatian breakfast (ham and cheese with anchovies, sardines and a salad) and the English breakfast (which came with salad, fried potatoes and kidney beans rather than baked beans, and a foot long garlic hot dog style sausage instead of a more traditional sausage).

All of these were excellent, especially the breakfast burrito, and the service was really friendly from all the waiters and waitresses. On the last day we were there, we overheard them ordering a taxi from the airport from the restaurant for a couple who wanted to go to the airport, so nothing is too much trouble, and they also coped with some really bizarre requests from other tourists for things that were not on the menu.

All of this cost around £4.50 for the breakfast each and £1 for coffee or tea, the quality of which was first rate.

We became so friendly with the staff that we were offered free drinks on a couple of occasions, which was again a nice bonus.

Also sitting on the terrace in the shade is such a lovely thing to do, and a welcome break from the sun.

They are open from 7am until midnight every day, and breakfast ends at 12pm. We can't comment on the quality of the food in the evening, but some of the main meals looked very tasty!

As Americans living in Split it is so nice to have a bit of variety. We love the large portions of delicious "Mexican" food. I love the nachos and my husband loves the quesadillas. We always have leftovers. Nice outdoor seating under an awning or a few tables inside. They even serve corona and jarritos lime soda!!

The location and atmosphere of this bistro was very good. Quite close to the Diocletian palace but not as touristy as right in the palace.
The food was excellent and so was the service.

Good food, price and service. It was right behind the hotel Royal Suites were we stayed. The space is very cozy, modern and the decoration is of good taste. But the best is the food, delicious.

The food here was tasty. It is down a little side street about 300m from the main palace and bus station. The food is a mix of Croatian and Mexican, the Mexican provides good relief from all the pizza and pastas on offer at other places. I had the grilled sea bass which was amazing and cooked to perfection, others had seafood gnocchi and fajitas all which got good reviews from my fellow diners. It is a nice little restaurant and you definitely get good value for your money here.
