All along the waterfront in Split there are outdoor cafes. They serve a variety of food but for the most part people seemed to be stopping for a cool drink or a coffee. It was so hot you had to take lots of breaks just to keep going so this became one of our favorite activites!!
This is a good option for fancy dining in Split. It's definitely not one of the cheapest options, but the food is good. The ambience is not really dalmation, so if you looking for something more traditional, you might check for example Konoba Kod Joze or Konoba Varos. The food is great, thought!
Boban is a great little restaurant with excellent seafood served in traditional dalmatian fashion. All seafood is either from that days catch, or brought directly from tanks to your table for review before cooking.
Favorite Dish: All of the shellfish, prepared in a simple olive oil sauce are WONDERFUL.
