If you're in Split it's worth visiting this restaurant where you can try some delicious dalmatian specialties, starting from black risotto and other seafood goodies to lovely meat dishes. Would highly recommend!

The seafood is excellent. We had grilled fish, grilled squid, and grilled prawns. All was fresh and very well prepared. The wine we had, žletina, was really good too. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and went above and beyond what can be expected....More
