We enjoyed Peka Menu here 2 years ago. And this time was great. The ambiance is perfect, perhaps the most romantic place we've been, ever. Quiet corner, just off the main square. Both terraces are very nice, we were in the Roman terrace where there are olive trees 300 years old, all in the shadow of the ancient wall 1700 years old. The wine was also very good, the advice of a young sommelier. In the interview we received good tips for sightseeing. Thanks Margarita for the wine and for the Split Culinary Tour!

Great place to have a dinner. Not sure what did we enjoy more - ambiance or food.
Also - great selection of wines to pair with your meal, and friendly stuff at your disposal to make a reccommendation.
Definitely will return, nice to have a place in city center where you can enjoy piece and quiet. :)

In an overly crowded “Old Town” in Split, it was a welcome inside restaurant. The service was very good but the menu was idiosyncratic. If you are not looking for the “traditional Dalmatian” meal, then this is a skip. The menu prices in general were reasonable, but the oysters were very expensive and of mediocre quality, which was very disappointing given the location.

Be prepared to pay 60 Kuna for bread that you didn’t order.
Great wine and great service though

We had the squid ink risotto which was very good. There were no child suitable dishes so we ordered the steak for her. The steak was meant to be medium but came medium rare. In addition it was really chewy. So disappointed considering it cost about 20 euros.

ocal food and authentic ambiance, this is a place to visit. Do yourself a favor and find this restaurant for a lunch or dinner. We sat on the Roman Terrace and enjoyed our dinner. The menu includes traditional, delicious Croatian dishes as well as fresh fish, tender meat dishes and many salads and starters.

Our server, Ivan, was so exceptionally knowledgeable about every source, every item on the menu, especially the wine. We are quite curious about culture and he seemed genuinely pleased to share information, including the history of the genetic identification of the grapes used to make the local wine
