Small place with lovely staff and delicious food! We had the crabs salad for Althea starters, grilled seabass fillet and risotto with scampi. Everything was so good and the staff are very helpful. Highly recommended!
You can blow your own trumpet and have friends write glowing reviews of your place as much as you want, but the fact remains that this place is over its top and shows a very unhealthy view to price/ quality, at the cost of its...innocent patrons. The chef - when he is actually there- is not the only person in Croatia who can cook ( no big tricks involved in preparing fish, after all) - and if he wants to convince his clientele otherwise, perhaps he should show his face on his place every now and then - instead of the tired, slovenly, hardly ever smiling gentleman that looks as if he has performed exactly the same chores for the past fourty years ( he probably has...)
Once It may have amounted to something, now this place is in dire need of some TLC and above all: a few new hospitality standards - adjust your prices to your quality, do not bestow unpleasant surprises on your clients ( ‘couvert’? Paying for bread s e p a r a t e l y? What kind of tourist trap tricks are these?)
Very disappointing. Below acceptable standard of client-friendlyness.
And oh yes, a small, practical tip: you are catering for a big party outside, close the house. You cannot serve two masters. You do not have the capacity.More
Whilst this is the 4th time I have been to Split I seemed to somehow walk past Nostromo. Never again! This restaurant not only offers the freshest fish you can come by with its outside concession being located where the fish market is held every...day, but also knows how to cook it to perfection!
The style of service is what I would describe as 'silver' which is rare these days. We had the pleasure of being advised and served by Goram on the two occasions we visited during this trip. He took us through the menu, guiding us through what might suit our mood and appetites. His knowledge of the wine list was detailed and spot on! (and no - he didn't just direct us to the most expensive!). I would recommend you book in peak season - it's busy for a reason !More
Very very very nice and kind staff, they saved our evening twice in split, because we did'nt have a reservation anywhere but luckily they gave us a table. The food was very delicious and high quality. Secret tip for everybody visiting split and doesn't want...a crowded place with lots of tourists. It's definitly worth the price and I recommend everybody to try it.More
I had a wonderful dinner with the family and we were accompanied by the head chef and the owner of the restaurant. We were all delighted with the specialties of the restaurant that most others do not have, and special emphasis was placed on seafood.
This was the best gnocchi of my life! It was filled with shrimps, I would definitely recommend it! It was hard to share it with my friend ;) Also the grilled fish filet was amazing.
The waiter Gorden (sorry if we misspelled) made our time...even better :)More
