    PREŽENCA Gurmanski hram: Beautiful baroque interior & great food

    by Nenocovic Written Oct 17, 2013

    Loved everything about this restaurant, starting from interior to great wine list. Food was very tasty, staff was more than pleasant and well trained. Tableware is very nice and looks expensive so you feel like eating in Buckingham palace. Prices are moderate. You even have fireplace and beautiful sitting area around it to enjoy your glass of wine after dinner if you wish, or to wait to be seated upon arrival. They take reservations and often have several days of regional cousins typical for Croatian regions. I recommend this place gladly for everyone who enjoys good food and wine. This restaurant is like no other in Split or larger area.
    They accept pets in restaurant. They even have cushion for smaller dogs.

    Favorite Dish: my favourite dishes are:
    - GOOSE LIVER CRÈME BRÛLÉE WITH TOASTED BREAD AND APPLE CHUTNEY
    - Hand-cut homemade smoked ham
    - SWEET POTATO CREAM SOUP WITH SHRIMP TAILS
    - RISOTTO - ALMODOVAR
    (chicken and scampi risotto with truffles – in white)
    - GILT HEAD BREAM FILLET WITH GRANA PADANO GRANULES
    (grilled gilt head bream fillet with Grana Padano granules on a bed of chards and maize)
    PORK FILLET - Preženca

    Also great selection of cold appetizers and large salad bar, with obviously daily fresh food. Beefsteak is great. Tried fish, also great and fresh.

    Kibela: Dalmatinska spiza - take your chance it worth

    by croisbeauty Updated Jun 14, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Until short time ago, I used to visit Split regularly and from that period have learned how and where to search for a good and cheap food. When time for "marenda" comes, around 9AM, just follow the locals and observe which restaurants are crowded with people. If so, it is the clear sign that the place is the right one.
    One more but very important suggestion, do not mind at the ambiance which could be disappointing in a sort of speaking, more important is the smell of food which is coming out of the konoba. Fresh and good made food is always easy recognizable.

    Favorite Dish: The meaning of "Dalmatinska spiza" is complex but in short it means grandma's cuisine. The weiter suggested me to order grilled liver with pommes frittes and season salate. As for drink, I had glass of domestic red wine from island of Hvar and esspresso. Dinner like that cost me something less than 50 kunas.

    Konoba Varoš: Dalmatinska konoba

    by croisbeauty Updated Jun 14, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Konoba is very specific type of restaurant which can be found all along the Adriatic shore. Sometimes ago every house had it own konoba, in the ground or even underground floor. It served for family and friends gathering, testing wines or just playing cards in a long winter days.
    Konoba used to be place, usually modestly arranged, where people eat good and fresh food and drink fine domestic wines.

    Favorite Dish: The best suggestion is to go at konoba with some local trustfull people, they usually know which one is the real konoba. There are so many fake konobas lately, offering average food, bad wines and cost alot of money.

    Kantun Paulina: Dalmatinska cakula

    by croisbeauty Updated Feb 9, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kantun is local word for the corner, so this is Paulina's place at the corner, located in Veli Varoš. This is not a restaurant but they offering sandwiches wihich arent bad at all, on the contrary. Split has sensitive population, if food is bad one will have to close the place because bad ghossips travel here very fast.

    Favorite Dish: What's so special with Kantun Paulina? Well, it is one of those place a must see because it is typical quarter cafe with regular guests who love and hate each others at the same time. It is place where they share joy after their football club has won the game, or drawn sorrow in drinks if been defeated. It is place where one get to know all city news even before then newspaper was printed,...., its one of those places we just love to visit.

    konoba "fife": buffet fife, split

    by gilshamir2 Written Dec 2, 2011

    serves tourist and locals. we set in the terrace with some workers from a near building site. lokated in the west end of the promanad in the very old matejuska quarter.the terrace is hiden from the road with a hedge. wooden bances and tables. the food is fresh, traditionaly simply cooked dishes. we ate there twice, had fried ans grilled fish & soup, and Stuffed peppers & seafood dish with grilled vegies the second time. first time we sit in the non smokers interior part and second time outside in smokers terrace so if you mind the cigarets smoke just ask to go inside. in busy times you find your self sitting together with strangers in the same table. we spent a very lovley late lunch with people we would never mit other way.the service is fast and friendly and the prices are on the cheap side of the scale.

    Favorite Dish: a mix of grilled fish and a mix of fried fish, salad and potatos,with local beer...the good life!

    Restaurant Floramye: Palace: Italian

    by antistar Updated Oct 3, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Surprisingly good, well priced pasta in a nice quiet medieval courtyard in the centre of the palace walls. Service was slow through overwork, rather than rudeness. They really need more than one waiter. But it was polite and friendly, and not rushed, despite the pressure on him. The best thing about the restaurant is the location: the old courtyard is a perfect respite on a hot summer's day.

    Buffet Fife: City Centre: Local

    by antistar Written Sep 13, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An extremely popular restaurant, with both locals and tourists. It has very friendly service, tasty local food, and a fast turnover. Don't be surprised to get put on a table with strangers: it's the only way to keep business brisk. If you don't want that, don't go there when it is busy. Although that might be all day in the summer peak season.

    There's nothing here for vegetarians, although I managed to cobble something together from the starters. The waiter just took it in his stride.

    The food was good, not amazing, but good value for the location. The flies outside were annoying, as were the smokers we had to share a table with. If you want to avoid smoke, sit inside, although you'll still get the flies.

    Vidilica-means the view for the scenery oasis: Vidilica at the Marjan hill

    by BruceDunning Updated May 28, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We did not have any food; just a liquid drink. Many people come up here for the view and hang out for a while to enjoy the scenery. Prices are a bit more than you would expect; like a beer was $4-5 and coffee $3.

    Zlatna Ribica: Local Restaurant Flavor of Gold(Zlatna)

    by BruceDunning Updated May 27, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Get fresh seafood right next door at this restaurant. They have a limited menu and only carry seafood items to eat because it is supported by the market right there.

    Favorite Dish: The fried squid was good, and at $8 was reasonable price. Octopus salad was $12 and was okay, but now the tentacles can be chewy regardless of how they are cooked. Large draft pivo/beer was $3; good value for that. French fries-pomme frites were $3, another okay value.

    Mostly a drinking place, but even those sluggers need some appetizers

    Favorite Dish: Shrimp and plate of nuts were on the fare. Best part is pivo./beer was $2.50 and glass of wine $4. The best part is seeing the locals wind up for the night.They liked our style and got free drinks a lot, but did not have many

    Fife Restaurant: Fife for the Locals Hang Out

    by BruceDunning Updated May 26, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food is of good quality in that the local people come here to eat, and return a lot. The business is good and the turnover of tables shows that people come, eat and go home.

    Favorite Dish: The lamb was pretty good, and unexpected was all the peas in the dish. Stew was $9 and the sardine/calamarie $10. Sardines were done to perfection. The Beer/pivo price was the item you need to watch, at $5 a beer, and wine $6 a glass. They get you there

    Lamb stew and sardine-calamarie dish LOcals with ethnic salt cod medly-it is okay

    Lulac: Lulac- Great Local Flavor of Food

    by BruceDunning Updated May 26, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was very good food, and of course the bread is always to fill up on. I had a Pork leg and it was roasted nicely, with a Kraut, sausage, Potatoes and Creamed spinach. Price was $8. Micky had Shrimp risotto, and it was $10. We both liked the food a lot; tasty and plentiful. A beer was on $2.50 besides. Leftovers were good for another night meal.

    Favorite Dish: I loved the pork hock/leg. It was well done and roasted to perfection

    Black Cat Bistro: Great Little Find - Good Food and Good Value

    by bev060 Updated Apr 24, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Generous servings in a pleasant environment with nice service. Not gourmet but really good value for good food. We eat a variety of different ethnic foods at home so having a change from Croatian style food was great. Wine list limited but nice choices at reasonable prices. Chris, the owner, very friendly and provided us with some travel hints. He is good with his staff and it shows in their mannerisms.
    We highly recommend this restaurant for a dinner in Split.

    Konoba Fife: Delicious and good for those on a budget!

    by riika Written Apr 8, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An excellent traditional restaurant or 'konoba' is 'Fife'. All the locals know about it and I wouldn't consider going to Split without having half my meals at Fife, haha. The prices are good, the food is good, but depending on what time you go there (even in the middle of the day), you might have to wait a little for service. It just depends. You can eat out on the terrace and enjoy the view under the shade. Try the 'pasticada' or fried squid. Delicious! :) Once you get to the harbour, walk along the Riva, until you come to an actual road, cross the road, walk past a few shops such as a rental place, a barbershop, etc, and then you'll see it. My favorite!

    Favorite Dish: Pasticada!

    Panchos: Mexican food...in Split???

    by davepl Written Feb 9, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place was recommended to us by a couple of guys we met at the airport. Not the biggest of places, but the food is amazing. A nice comfortable interior with english speaking staff that ACTUALLY SPEAK TO YOU. We stopped by for lunch and ended up going back to the bar in the evening. We managed to show up on super mario night. All in all, great atmosphere, it has that comfy welcoming feeling that seems to be missing in Croatia. For bonus points, they have a big chocolate labrador as a greeter.

    Favorite Dish: The burgers were great...but the Burrito, my god, hands down our favorite place to grab a quick eat during our time in Split.
