We ate for the starters smoked tuna with rucola. It was delicious! I ate the best ravioli with truffles as a main course and I have to say, that it was the best portion of our whole trip here in Split! The stuff was also very friendly!

Good food with great service. Prices are decent. The waiter read our group perfectly and entertained us. Shared all their appetizers and was pleasantly suprised.

We were warmly greeted with no big push so that was a good start. The friendly waiter was good with recommendations and we enjoyed our meal. Price was good. Only niggle is why can't more places offer free water with meal?

I came to Semafor two nights in a row for dinner as i loved it so much the first night. Great friendly staff that are knowledgable on the menu. I had the Carbonara one night and some Seabed the next, The white wine is also fantastic.

My wife and I went here for lunch with a friend. Great location. Food was terrible. My wife ordered vegetarian lasagna. It was burned crisp. The noodles were not only black around the edge but like leather. Maybe heated too long after over cooking. My lamb in gravy is a traditional Croatian dish. It is supposed to be cooked slowly...

We ate here twice in Split, found the prices and portions good and the service was great. I particularly enjoyed the chocolate cake which was delicious, and like a hot fudge chocolate cake!

I went there with a friend of mine. We spent about a week in Split, and it was our last chance to eat something amazingly delicious. And this place was totally the best for us.

There's like 3 outside places that all sort of look the same at first glance along this strip of Kralja Tomislava, across from the new building of the Cornaro Hotel. Together they sort of have a sort of cheap tourist vibe, so I skipped them while staying at the Cornaro -- until the last night, then I didn't have the... More

We visited Croatia for a couple of weeks and went here on our last night. The food and drink was excellent and very good value for money. It was my favourite meal of our holiday. Josip our waiter was great too! I'd highly recommend this restaurant!
