This restaurant is great. Meals are great, but don't go there for lunch, but for a dinner, because lunch menu is poor.
They make great salads.

Thank Igor S

Usually I get bored with hotel dinner buffets but this one was exceptionally good even for a full week.

We ate at the Spalatum Restaurant twice during our stay at the Le Meridien.

Our first experience was during the breakfast buffet. Overall, it was a fairly standard breakfast buffet. I expected the pastries to be fresher and have more selection, but overall, it was fine. The breakfast was not included as a part of our room so overall we thought it was not worth the money to eat at more than once. They also try to tout these refreshing smoothie sips as you walk in. We tried about 4 different flavors and they were frankly offensive! Terrible!

The service at the breakfast buffet was beyond terrible. We ordered a latte and the waitress told us there was an upcharge for it (fine). So she brought us the coffee and the 2nd bill (why they couldn't just wait to the end and do a combined bill, i'm not sure). We then went back for another plate and she came running after as. Apparently she must have thought that we were skipping out on the bill? I mean we were paying guests at a 5 star hotel, so I"m not sure why that was her inclination. When she found us, filling our plates, instead of just putting the bill back on the table, she insisted we sign the bill right then. I"m not sure why we weren't allowed to finish our breakfast before signing the bill. To top it off, we charged it to our room, so it's not like the charge wouldn't have gone through anyways.

We then ventured to the restaurant for dinner on our last night. The balcony view at sunset was gorgeous. We had seen the menu outside the restaurant and saw several things that looked appealing. However, when the waiter came over he said not to order off the menu and to get the buffet instead because it had everything on the a la carte menu. Well that was a mistake. As with most buffets, most everything had been sitting too long. The only decent food was the meat we got fresh off the grill. By the time we got to dessert, they were picked over and they weren't refreshing. And the cost was extremely high for such mediocre food. Don't get sucked into the buffet!

We went here for lunch as we were staying at the hotel and didn't want to drive. Nice restaurant with great views for sure. We were not expecting too much given it is a hotel restaurant. Menu had a fair amount of options though was pricy as we expected. My wife ordered the grilled vegetable sandwich and I had the penne. Sandwich was just OK; pasta was good though I am used to better/bigger/cheaper pasta at home. Total bill for lunch, neither of us ordered a drink, was $150 KUNA. It was good, though I would suggest unless you have to eat at the hotel, go into Split.
