To je Tako

If you don’t like Mexican food – we can’t be friends. Ok, joking, but seriously – who doesn’t love a delicious taco, burrito, taquito, nachos in one hand a refreshing margarita in another? Beautiful interior, unique location (cute little cobble street) and amazing service makes this To je Tako our go to place for a quick bite or an evening hang.

We love our healthy food and all the goodies involved. Vegetarian or vegan – you’re covered with innovative lunches, smoothies, juices and of course simply wonderful desserts. If you’re in town – visit the Makrovega restaurant tucked among the stone houses and if you’re a little outside – Up Café is on your way wherever you’re going!

Luka café & Luka Ice cream and cakes

Think of the best cake or gelato you’ve had and add a little to it – that’s how good Luka’s is! If you’re looking to grab a cone, a lovely pie or a muffin – the Luka Ice cream&Cakes is your destination, if you want to enjoy a lavish breakfast or brunch – sit at the newly opened Luka Café and take it all in!

Marta’s Veggie Fusion

Comfort food for vegetarians and everyone else! A tiny bistro-like spot is a newbie in the Split food scene, but already has devote fans – and of course, when the food’s that good you want to come back all the time! Yum!

Corto Maltese freestyle food

A breakfast (and lunch) favorite, the quirky restaurant uses fresh local ingredients to create fun and delicious meals. Sit, order, watch the people go by and become a part of Split’s life. And if you feel like you haven’t had enough – just come back for a drink in the evening and take in a whole different kind of vibe!


Another “local with a modern twist” spot is located in the heart of the city – the Piazza (main square). Lovely rusticmeetshipster design and simple, but very much enjoyable dishes will help you start or end your day with some wonderful flavors! We are quite the breakfast maniacs here, so it’s our go-to spot to fuel up on some avo toast or eggs.


No list can be full without this amazing restaurant! Bokeria has made quite the splash when they opened and keeps everyone happy and content to this day. Our top recommendation for dinner – amazing creative dishes, great local wines, beautiful interior, unique atmosphere and if you’re lucky – live music – will make your evening unforgettable!

4coffee soul food

Who can live without a good cup of coffee? We surely can’t and that’s why every time we’re in Split we’re stopping by these wonderful coffee roasters to grab a cuppa of fresh and aromatic joe. So good, so good, I’ve got you pa pa pa paaaa! (Just a quick advice – don’t add sugar to your coffee too lavishly, you’ll get schooled!)


Even though 80% of this list is food-based (duuh), we couldn’t skip the gorgeous and creative artisan jewellery SALT. Seriously, the place has the most amazing creations inspired by the owner’s travels around the world. Everything is handmade and unique, so if you’re looking for a special gift from Split – this is the place to go.
