Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food here was excellent. We had bruschetta and burrata to start which were really fresh and tasty. I had pork ribs for my main and my husband had a marinated steak dish. The meat was melt in your mouth! And really tasty. It was...a reasonable price given how central this place is. The ambience was lovely, nice relaxing music and comforting lighting. The staff were also friendly and attentive. I’d highly recommend a meal here.More

This is a stylish but relaxed and warm place to eat. Great atmosphere great food! Just a view meters from The Piazza. The menu is Mediterranean, Dalmatian with a twist. We have had some super starters there, Ike tuna carpaccio; burrata with a really nice...dressing - light and delicious; their pasta is fabulous and black risotto is to die for …and there is more…. Wine selection is good and reasonably priced. Service is friendly and efficient. Yes, this is so far our preferred restaurant to go to in Split.More

The food presentation was nice. The ambience is nice. The food was a letdown, aesthetics isn't everything. It's ok but not wow I'd come here again. Brother didn't like the food but they were quite rude about how they went about it. They wouldn't swap...it out for anything. He only took one bite but because there wasn't ‘anything’ wrong with the dish they wouldn't take it off the bill. Even though it was barely eaten. They could have suggested something else - swap it out for a different dish. Paying for something you barely ate just isn't fair espesucally when there is no other solution which they did not offer. After we finished eating. The bill took longer than expected considering the restaurant was empty. The food came quick (empty restaurant) the bill took long (empty restaurant). The service went downhill after you criticised their food. I had to come down to ask for the bill. For a restaurant that has a lot of good reviews one small critic the service slows down. Make it make sense. Is that the type of service anyone should receive.More

I had a group of 14 and needed to book somewhere to eat on a rainy Saturday night. Apetit has a bit of a separate area which suited us perfectly. We had 2 tables of 7. The food was really good and each couple received...a number so they could pay their bill at the end, with no problems at all. Highly recommend the eggplant tempura. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we had a great night. I felt reasonable pricing.More

So delicious! We tried black ink rice, homemade pasta with prosciutto and truffle, and tuna tartar. The rice and the pasta, amazing! So tasty, just like eating your Mum's favourite meal at home. Comfort food full of flavour, chill and lovely place with very nice...decoración, and staff really profesional and friendly. Everyone should come here and enjoy as we did ☺️ (3 people) Quality and price amazing! 10 out of 10!More

The restaurant is beautiful and the waiter who seemed to be manning the door was very pleasant but the rest… Average food for sky high prices with a side of miserable staff…. Eat elsewhere and save your money!!

Amazing food with surprising complexity in a stylish and cozy restaurant. The service was great and would 10/10 recommend.

We had to wait 15 mins for a table for 4 but it was worth it (we hadn’t booked). Very friendly waiter and lovely food. Reasonably priced for Split.

Not a good experience. Ordered the lamb and the bass. Lamb was very fatty. All vegetables with and the potatoes both with the bass and the lamb were EXTREMELY salty. We could not eat them. We mentioned this to the waiter. Overall, a very disappointing...experience. Would not recommend.More

We really enjoyed our first meal here and so returned the following evening (without a booking) however the owner was kind enough to find us a table even though they were full. The service we received was superb with some of the most professional but...friendly wait staff. All four meals over the two nights were delicious (2 different risotto, a pasta, and tuna steak meals). Would definitely go back when next in Split and thoroughly recommend as a first class but reasonably priced restaurant still in Old Town but not in the noisy crowded area. Wine and beer options were also great and staff helpful in suggesting meals to try for a new culinary experience!More

Really friendly staff and the restaurant was really accommodating to some changes we made to our booking time due to running late from a tour. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. We went for the black ink risotto and the ribeye steak with French fries,...no complaints from either end! Would recommend, faultless!More

Sorry, not for us. Staff were dormant and not interested in their customers and food was just ok. Not worth the money. Would not go back.

The restaurant itself is so pretty and the food was really good. The table service is quick and all of the staff were nice. We never got the name of our waiter but he was lovely and always making jokes with us. The cocktails were...great and food was amazing everyone finished their plates. If you’re a bigger group like us I’d recommend calling up and booking a table. Only wish there was more than one female toilet. The cocktails were cheaper than we expected (€9-€12) and the food ranges from about €16-€30. Great restaurant for a date or special occasion. It’s also right in the centre so it was nice to walk around after, get ice cream, go for drinks etc.More
