The most fabulous places to eat & drink in Split, Croatia

Over the last five years, tourism in Eastern Europe has exploded, from the best places to eat and drink in Bratislava, to the blissful coastal delights of Split and the new quirky, cool hotels of Athens, Eastern European countries have never been so appealing. 

Winter and spring are cooler months but still provide a great time to visit, less tourists = no need for restaurant reservations, this is when serious food lovers take advantage, here are my favourite places to eat and drink in Split.


Croatia’s climate and lifestyle lends itself to long lunches overlooking the sea, the only place to do this is at Dvor, above Firule Beach, the location is so beautiful you’ll want to stay forever. Try the sea bass tartare and pork belly with a crisp glass of Croatian white wine, then go back later for dessert as the sun sets.

Daddy Cool

Back in town try a shrimp falafel at Daddy Cool, this hip little joint has a real good thing going with just three falafel options on the menu, but they are all equally delightful. There's hardly any seating inside Daddy Cool but it’s a good take-out option if you want to take food to the beach. 

Ciro Biri Bela

For a cool twist on classic drinks, like fiery ginger aperol spritz, drop in on new joint, Ciri Biri Bela. It's only been open a few months but they've already got the scene sussed, sit in the courtyard surrounded by plants and twinkling lights for an atmospheric, friendly evening with good music to boot.

Kanoba Marjam

Kanoba Marjam does incredible seafood, I tried the homemade pasta with truffle, prawns and pancetta and it was spot on, get a table outside to watch the world go by.

If you spy a food truck on the side of a road, don't miss the local kebab, cevapcici, mini pieces of grilled meat are served inside the most delicious pitta bread you’ll ever eat, all for less than £3.

Zeru Café and Bistro

For good wine served with a side of local knowledge, interesting chats and tapas style food, head over to Zeru Café and Bistro. Only a few months old it already has a brilliant reputation and looks set to be the place to go for 2021.
