Fig Split

Nestled within the heart of the 4th Century Diocletian Palace is our newest location - Fig Split. Our focus was in creating a new and vibrant dining experience, but still in-keeping with our travel inspired food mantra - something a little different. And

Just before we headed off to Split at the start of June I took a look at TA and saw that this restaurant was highly rated. After reading a rave review of their carrot cake I was determined to indulge in that. At first it looked as if we not be able to find it as the receptionist at our hotel could not tell us where it was located (despite it being only one lane away). Anyway returning from a tour we decided to have dinner so we did with me having a flatbread and my husband the pulled pork. Then it came to dessert. Alas no carrot cake as it turned out this in made in the restaurant and it had not worked out (it had been too hot and the icing had turned). Also with the kitchen being small they have to sometimes decide whether to make one thing or the other. No carrot cake for me then.Not daunted by that on the morning before we headed off to one of the islands we turned up looking for said carrot cake. Success they had it so that was a sweet breakfast for me. Off we went to Hvar (where the original Fig is).On the day we returned to the UK we had some time to push in before heading to the airport and as I had been unable to sample the fig sour at the restaurant in Hvar guess what? Yes back we came to Fig, Split for that fig sour and more carrot cake, which was even better this time. There was a table near us debating what to have and we were able to give them our recommendations. I am glad to say that they had their meal before we left and that they confirmed our choices were spot on.I understand that the person behind Fig may be Californian hence that influence on the food and more importantly that everything is freshly made.For me this (not so little) restaurant - as well as the lovely courtyard there is seating inside hit all the buttons - lovely location,friendly staff, excellent value, excellent food.

Opened in 2013, Dvor has become one of the best Croatian restaurants in just couple of years. Dvor features a serene and intimate environment with spectacular views of Adriatic sea and the nearby islands of Brac and Solta. The cooking philosophy is the pr

The location is incredible. Set atop a cliff overlooking bavice beach. Come at sunset to truly appreciate the view. We had the tasting menu which was superb. The tuna tartare, squid ink risotto and lamb were all faultless. The service was both understated and attentive. The wine pairings were well considered and interesting. Although at the higher end of the price point for split, it still felt like value for money, you’d certainly pay more in the UK ( circa £75 each) Overall highly recommended.

Marta's Veggie Fusion

Feel-good hearty vegan street food in a small family owned diner right next to spectacular Peristil square.

I disagree with VeganHayleys review in September... Marta's Veggie Fusion is very allergy aware and anyone who has an allergy and does not tell the restauranteur before ordering is being irresponsible. Allergens like soya, mustard and gluten are written on the menus so easy to decide what to have, but staff are happy to advise on others.The place is great and Marta is very friendly and helpful. I explained what allergies I had and all the information was relayed back to the chefs and dishes I ordered checked as to suitability.I ordered falafel bowl with mix a la wok for my husband with a side of skin on fries to share.The food was faultless, very tasty, fresh and scrumptious and filling too. We ordered a tiramisu and lime cheesecake to take away as we were full after clearing our plates, packed separately as the cheesecake contained one of my allergens. The cakes eaten later sat on our balcony on our cruise ship with a cup of tea were fantastic.Marta's is a must visit place for all vegans and vegetarians in Split. Highly recommended.

The place is very good! Grilled tuna was super fresh! Amazing fish! Grilled dorada was also mega tasty. The kitchen is small, so expect some delays, if the restaurant is full. Cedircards seem to be accepted but may be issues due to bad signal in the old town. Dear guests I appreciate your review about experience in our restaurant. I'm very happy to read this. Thank you for being our guest in Split and hope to see you again. Best regards from Torito Split
