After a great week on Sail Croatia's Diamond, we had a few hours before we needed to go to Split airport. We chose this restaurant because of its location and reviews on TA. We enjoyed a wonderful picante pizza and a few glasses of wine. People watching is an added plus!

Nice place for people watching. However, if you want value for money you should go and eat elsewhere. I ordered a Pizza with only Mozzarella and Rucola (which they don't have on their Pizza menu), and they charged me for a Pizza with 4 cheeses PLUS half a portion of Mozzarella 15 EUR!!! In fact there were only a couple... More

This was by the far the most overpriced meal we had in Split....and the worst. The seafood could have been fresher, the vegetables looked like they had been sitting in the sun soaking in oil all day. Having a big TV on the wall showing normal TV programs really did nothing for the atmosphere. There are FAR better places to... More

we had truffle pasta and definitely overdone seafood, the beer was also expensive. Pretty weird that a restaurant in the middle of such a lovely city, with fresh seafood near by can be so bad, Most of guest ordered pizza that day, I am sorry we did not - that would be probably better

This Cafe, Restaurant and Bar is located in the heart of the center and old part of Split. You are sitting on a market place. The service is average. We ordered a glass of white wine. It has arrived in small bottles with a contents of 0,18 l. The interior design is average. Outside nobody has cared about the appearance... More

Located on the Pjaca (Narodni Trg) in Split’s Old Town, you find the restaurant “Gradska Central. With large external seating areas under awnings as well as an extensive interior of polished wood, glass and brass. In the main season, is very difficult to find a table. I think, that is pretty normal, by this wave of tourists. The food ranges... More

Like others already I have been inspired to write a review by the horrendous service in this place. Firstly one waiter rolled his eyes and audibly sighs cause we said we need extra time on the menu. Then asking him to describe some of the dishes again seemed to upset him. I asked how big the salad was and he... More

Went to this place to enjoy the end of the afternoon and have a drink with my girlfriend and maybe have some food after. When I called the waiter and asked for a couple of drinks he just rudely said No No no cafeteria, took the menus of my hands and went back inside. I completely understand that some places... More
