These guys have been doing a really good job for a few years now. Reliable food (The fiji curry is great) with a layout that allows you to find a good spot to make a bit of noise with friends or have a quiet dinner for 2. Good menu, and a service team who really know their stuff.

We hit Split Bar between breakfast and lunch and for coffee - very, very good coffee! The bar staff and chefs made us feel welcome and were happy for us to decide if we wanted to eat there whilst enjoying the coffee, and it turned out to be the right choice to opt for an early lunch because the place...

Really, really good food. Staff was excellent as well! Our waiter explained what a local fish tasted like that was on the menu, which we ordered and it was excellent. He noticed that we didn't like our wine and dealt with the issue professionally and proactively. Even the cook leaned leaned out of the hatch to guide my fiancée to... More

Had a very nice meal, a suprising combination, but well cooked. We didn't get offered the desert menu or after dinner drinks, even though it was pretty quiet evening.

Came in for lunch, staff made me feel welcome straight away. I ordered the steak sandwich. It was amazing!! Double thumbs up. I will be returning for dinner as the menu looks delicious.

We had a staff dinner after a long day and the food was plentiful and well cooked. The service second to none with good recommendations on what to eat.

Looking for a place for dessert on a Saturday night, this is the place. Front restaurant was full but out the back fairly quiet and we chose to sit on the couch, quick friendly service. Our desert were very nice and finished off our night together.

My husband and I visited Split earlier this week . The restaurant was full apart from one table for two that we were given by a delightful young woman waitress. She very thoughtfully suggested we order quickly so we would be ahead of a table of ten , and we did appreciate that. The dinner was delicious for both of... More

Fabulous food & fabulous service. Great atmosphere, buzzing & busy. Great for any occasion with friends or families. Not an extensive menu which I think is a plus, what is on the menu is cooked very well.

Thank Templc
