Dreamy dreamy dreamy! The staff were perfect - always super attentive and really friendly. We became regular customers and they even gave us a round of shots on the house 😄The cocktails were the cheapest we could find in Split, but they still tasted AMAZING!...Really nice chilled atmosphere, but never dull! We came here every evening on our holiday and can’t wait to go back in the future ❤️❤️ 11/10 must visit!!More

On arrival, I asked if the barman/owner was able to put football on the screen - no problem. I had visited the year before and always enjoy listening to the music that he plays - especially when I discovered B.B King's 'The Thrill Is Gone'...there. Fantastic. Thank you.More

We found this restaurant by chance. We actually visited it twice for meals during our stay. It is not a very large restaurant and the menu was not that large, but the service and friendliness of the staff were excellent. They do two types of...burger. The first is an ordinary burger and the second is with cheese. I can state from the heart that they were the best burgers I have ever eaten. They were obviously home made and were so tasty. I am not really a lover of the large burger chains, but these were just so scrummy. That is why I had the cheese one on our second visit. I must also mention the lemon cheesecake. Something that you just have to try. Also very scrummy. I thoroughly recommend this to you.More

Stumbled upon this restaurant while wandering aimlessly in old town of Split. Tasty food and drinks, friendly staff, and pleasant music you didn't have to shout over. A great choice overall.

Called in here 3 times during our recent visit to Split. The first time we both drank the beer, so no problems there. The second time we had some food which was very good. When we got the bill we realised later that we'd been...charged for the most expensive glass of red wine rather than the one we'd ordered. We thought it was a mistake, so we shrugged it off. The next time we called in we specifically asked for the Lectus wine which the ower "Mike" repeated back to us. He then went on to charge us for the more expensive wine again. When we queried this he was very off hand, but eventually reduced the bill to the correct amount. So, not a mistake but a deliberate ploy. Come on Mike you numpty. You have a nice bar selling good food, why resort to this kind of crap?More

Was in split for the day found this lovely little bar up one of the side alleys. My husband had tuna steaks with sesame seeds, wasabi, ginger and soy sauce, he said it was absolutely delicious. I had Aberdeen Angus burger with cheese and homemade...wedges. We had homemade cheesecake with raspberry coulis, followed by coffee and the owners homemade grappa. A throughly delicious meal highly recommendMore
