Best Restaurants in Split
Welcome to Split. The second largest Croatian city is a completely different place. The sun shines here all the time and people are very relaxed. So relaxed that they have their own word for relaxation, “fjaka” (when you just want to lay down and relax). That can be felt through meals that Split’s gastro scenery has to offer. They are simple, made with seafood specialties and extremely delicious. They just want to offer you the tastes that the Adriatic Sea gave to them. Famous Split and Dalmatian specialties are “pašticada” (stew with beef), Dalmatian “rožata” (cake) and Dalmatian “kroštule” (sweet pasta). All that is even better with Dalmatian wine and, “travarica” and “lozovača” (homemade schnapps). Visit Diocletian’s Palace, take a walk on beautiful Split Riva and dive into gastro specialties of best restaurants in Split.
The MaToni tavern is Split’s favorite place in the basement for Mediterranean cuisine, vegan cuisine and traditional Croatian cuisine. The place gives a truly unique ambient that suits a tavern, a popular type of restaurant usually located near the sea with special wooden decoration. Sounds boring? Not at all! We believe that meals named “Ma:Gnudi”, “Bestial” and “Obrazinhos” will make your senses go wild and give you the richness of flavors that you haven’t tried before. MaToni is also a place of first-class wines.
Restaurant & Wine Bar Zinfandel
With the name suggesting to a sort of wine, Zinfandel indeed is not only a place of food but as well a place of quality wine. It is somewhat different than the whole Split gastronomy with not so many meals as usual, rather with few that in combination with plenty herbs and champagne or wine make a fabulous experience. Try traditional Dalmatian cheese platter, “Buzara” mussels or even Beef cheeseburger and enjoy every bite.
Situated in a palace from 15th century, Restaurant Apetit seems to be traditional but in fact is much more than that. Lots of traditional Dalmatian entrees but in the same time great modern main dishes with a touch of delicious desserts and fine wines will completely surprise your expectations and senses as well. Seafood risottos, white fish, burgers, Dalmatian cheese and many more can be found in one of the best restaurants in Split. Let them satisfy your appetite in Restaurant Apetit.
