Friendly professional service with a smile. Interesting and delicious food, simple menu but perfect and great wine recommendations. This was our second visit and would return immediately. Fillet Mignon and Truffle mash was my favourite….

This stylish restaurant is now a go to destination in the old town. Better choice on the menu than on previous visits. Enjoyed a delicious burrata starter, followed by pasta carbonara. Love the modern interior design. Friendly service. Reasonable price. Reservations recommended.

Looks like a fun place. Food is trying to be more sophisticated than it is. No side orders available & menu is limited Good is average. Service was terrible. Waiter ignored us for large portions of the evening & forgot to bring coffee and other...things we asked for. Staff were rude at times. I wouldn’t recommend this place. There are better options in SplitMore

Fantastic food and service. We took a large group of 31 friends here and then went as a couple because we loved our experience so much. Get reservations because this restaurant books quickly.

We had a party of 8 for dinner last night. The service was outstanding. Our waiter, Ivan, was very knowledgeable about Croatian wines in addition to being personable with a sense of humor. He was very patient and attentive throughout the entire evening. It is...evident he takes his profession very seriously and tries his best to make the evening an unforgettable experience. The food was phenomenal. We had ceviche, sea bass and citrus marinade, which was fabulous. The beretta was outstanding. We had a wonderful Posip during our starters. Has anyone ever had a bad Posip? It was the perfect choice. Our main courses included lamb and beef selections all cooked to perfection. The lamb fell off the bone and was seasoned to perfection. We paired the grilled meats with a fabulous Saints Hills Plavac Mali from Dingac. Ivan decanted the wine early, let it breath, prior to serving it for our main course. After dinner we spent time chatting with the General Manager, Luka Bokavsek, who was so friendly and helpful. He is a former water polo player who played at UCLA in Los Angeles. He and his sister run the restaurant. They could not have been more gracious. Bokeria is a must on your next visit to Split. You will not be disappointed, I promise.More

Food was not good, lamb too salty and carpaccio tasteless. Only good side was the water who served us, he was really kind and easy to Talk to. I used to love this restaurant, But now I can notice quantity has become more important than...the quality.More

All in all really nice experience! Good music, helpful service and great food. We had the octopus and the capellini pasta dish. Both were delicious.

Excellent truffle mash with fillet of beef, and a great selection of wines. Waiter very friendly and informative. Definitely met the recommendation as probably the best restaurant in the city from our landlady. Nice jazz music and lively vibe.

We were lucky to get a table for the same evening when we passed at lunchtime, so I advise you to book ahead. We had a lovely table, for the four of us (13 and 11 year olds) and the waiter was super helpful and...friendly, suggestion a bottle of wine that would work with both the wife's risotto and my lamb (which was spot on) as well as engaging with the kids. Yes, it's going to be a little more expensive than some of the local restaurants but this is a far elevated food to most of them, and the extra cost I consider great value based on the quality of the meal. We're all big eaters, and we came out of here full, and very happy. It's a small menu - so if you are with fussy eaters or kids not used to eating this type of good, then you should go elsewhere, We ordered all 4 of the starters available - the burrata which was my son's first time trying and he loved it, the deep fried 'balls' which were moreish, a very light and refreshing ceviche and a super steak carpaccio which was packed with umami. Mains - my son had grilled octopus which was the best serving of octopus on this trip, and melted in his mouth. A sea bass fillet on courgettes for my more fussy son. The wife had heard that Bokeria was the place for a great cuttlefish black risotto - and it was packed with flavour and perfectly cooked - there was actually too much for her to finish). I went with the lamb shank which was perfectly cooked, not drowned in a sauce (which many lamb shanks can be) and a came with a cauliflower gnocchi which was delicious and not like anything I've had before. If I was staying another night in Split, I would have returned. Very much recommended for those who enjoy great food, and great wine. The music is turned up, but it's recognisable jazz and doesn't stop you being able to enjoy your table's conversation.More

This restaurant had the best food I've had in a restaurant in a very long time. With that being said, it's an extremely popular place that needs reservations at least 2 days in advance. The hostess at the door was turning away people every minute...of the evening. We loved absolutely everything about the place! We ate outside the first night and had the gouda cheese pasta and oxtail risotto. Our waiter, Marco was so knowledgeable about wine pairings and was accommodating for my food allergies. It was so yummy, we wanted to eat here a second time. Had to make that reservation 2 nights in advance since the next day was full. This time we got the Filet Minion with truffle mashed potatoes and the swordfish. My husband and I both agreed that the steak is the best we've ever had in any restaurant!More
