Nothing much to say. They got vibe, food and ambiance. There are only two long communal tables inside and 2 small tables outside. And you will leave the restaurant with a happy warm heart ❤️ The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere in the...restaurant just felt nice and happy and warm. Just be careful, in here you will get the well-seasoned homemade food in a huge portion. It’s easy to fall in love with this restaurant, you only need to find the menu on the hand written card on the table and order! The staff will be more than happy to give you recommendation on your food & he was more than right! He’s a wise guy, listen to him! :DMore

The best traditional Dalmatian food we tried in this trip. Look at the pics. The taste was much better than the pics. The owner was really friendly and honest as well.

One of the most memorable meal we had in Split, Croatia 🇭🇷. Small restaurant, but big in flavors and taste. The Squid with Fava Beans was outstanding, bold and flavorful. The Grilled Sardines Platter was fresh, simple and seasoned well. Our server was just welcoming,...he is the chef/owner. He even gave us a whiskey shot on the house. Limited seating so be prepared to wait during rush hours and only cash only.More

DeListes Comfy small friendly and delicious. Pleasing stone interior with two family bench tables and two outside tables. Eclectic music soundtrack mix of Croatian folk, blues, show-tunes, jazz and more creating a lively warm atmosphere. Over several nights I sampled the amply proportioned and fairly...priced squid and fava bean stew, a signature dish of DeListes, the shrimp and barley, sardines and potatoes the meatballs and the veal. Chef owner Zdravko and chef Mariana prepare with care and authenticity these wonderful traditional Croatian dishes. The aromas when entering attests to this. Marko the waiter besides being outgoing and entertaining is the glue that holds it all together keeping things running smoothly. Cold beer and wine as well. Give it a try or two you will not be disappointed.More

100% recommend coming here! Amazing, amazing food! It's set on an alley so perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the Riva

This hidden gem only has four tables (2 inside, two outside) and doesn't take reservations. We had a traditional Croatian mixed fish plate for two. Wonderfully light food (shrimp, mackerel, sardines) with potatoes and beans. The owner was delightful.

Getting a table is difficult so we had to queue, but it was more than worth the wait! The food is hearty Dalmatian cuisine cooked to an excellent standard and absolutely massive portions. The style of service is unique and charming and the house wine...is good and priced very reasonably. Considering the quality and quantity of the food, service and location these guys should be charging more than double. Will be back for more grappa and laughs soon! :)More
