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.

We sat outside, there are tables outside as well. In high season, you should definitely book table in advance. We tried drop in, but it was full, we got a table the day after. We saw a lot of people trying to get tables passing...by. Very good service and good food, nice wines as well.More

The staff were friendly and the service was fast. Can recommend the crab linguine and the shrimp risotto both were amazing and the atmosphere sitting outside the restaurant in the evening sun was beautiful. Best restaurant we visited while in split.

I came here for my birthday and the veal ragu is a dish I will likely dream about for years to come… absolutely incredible. I wasn’t a huge fan of my cocktail, but my friends was lovely and I wish I ordered that one instead,...but still nice. I also tried all three desserts - my favorite was the mousse trifecta, close runner up was beetroot cake. Our waiter was so funny and sweet, had us smiling all night which really makes the experience that much better. We also got complimentary shots of herbal moonshine. Don’t do this if you’re a weak shot taker. It will put you down.More

Wondering around Split we were directed to this casual place with a very fun vibe. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. We had the tuna stake and the shrimp with blue crab tagliatelle both were simply perfect.

Absolutely amazing food. Limited menu but everything they do is utterly perfect. For an evening meal you’ll need to book or turn up very early. Lovely staff, quirky quips on menu and stunning food. Highly recommend

The food was Michelin star quality of presentation and it was overall brilliant. This gave of the overall feel of the restaurant rustic and lighthearted feel with the funny references in the menu and the friendliness of staff would totally recommend.

Stumbled across this place around the quaint streets of Old Town. Such a quirky place with great music. Wine was high end prices but food was amazing. The lamb dish was falling apart and delicious.

The best food we’ve had in Croatia! Waiter was friendly and chatty, and our meals were served within a reasonable time after placing our order. Wine was good and the atmosphere was fantastic!

We went there to celebrate a birthday and it was an excellent and memorable evening. Waiting staff were excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. A lot of attention to detail had gone into each dish and this was explained well by the waiter. The chefs were also...very happy to explain how they made the dishes. We shared the buffata as a starter and then had the lamb and veal as the main course. Highly recommend them all.More
