Hard to get a poor meal in trendy Split. If excellence needs to be hunted for, average food is generally pretty good. But not here. We stopped for lunch at this indoor/outdoor cafe in Diocletian's Palace and ordered an octopus salad and a caprese salad (explicitly said to be mozzarella and tomato).

My octopus salad contained, well maybe a small tentacle cut into pieces of microscopic size which were lost in a sea of raw onion and supermarket-quality tomato pieces. My companion's Caprese was composed of processed cheese which had clearly come from a cellopak, some not-too-wonderful supermarket tomatoes and a bit of leaf lettuce. One would expect food like this on an airliner.

Happily they gave us a basket of bread which was of very fine quality. The tally, with one glass of white wine and a half-liter bottle of mineral water ran 200 Kuna or around $40.00. Service was indifferent but not offensive but there is no excuse for this kind of tourist-trap food in a city where $10 would buy you Captain Nemo;'s giant squid, not just a few bits of microscopic octopus and where real mozzarella is available in every shop, bistro and cafe. Av oid this place and dine at Apetit, just a few steps away.
