We were lucky to have this wine bar right around the corner. They have a great selection of local wines and very good recommendations. Also the cheese and meat plates were amazing. Not that expensive either. Service is of high quality and very friendly.

If you like wine, cheese and meat this place is for you. The wait staff is incredibly knowledgeable about all of their products, particularly the local wines and cheeses, and are happy to help you make up plates that you like. We returned for a second visit, we enjoyed it so much. The patio is a great place for people... More

The staff seems knowledgable on Croatian wines, the was a good selection by the glass. The cheese and cold cuts were not bad, and the staff was friendly.

Went there with a friend to try some local wine while on vacation is Split. We had a bottle of the sparkling rosé which was very tasty. The service was great and so where the tapas. Such a nice place to sit back on the terras and enjoy the atmosphere.

Visited this bar twice on our stay. Excellent knowledgeable waiters took pride and pleasure in pointing us in the right direction in choosing superb wines to accompany our cheese platter. We also had a meat platter which we both enjoyed. A great place to escape the heat and sit back and watch the world go by.

We heard about this wine bar, so went after dinner for some wine and cheese. It is a small place located on a side street just on the outskirts of the old town. The waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and had great recommendations. Service was slow - as there was only one waiter helping all tables. It was... More
