Restaurants “Adriatic” in Split has been my favorite for years now. Not only that we had our wedding reception there but this place has the most beautiful terrace in the country. Perched on a high cliff above the sea, it is a perfect place for romantic dinners.
But, being busy and staying with family in Split, we rarely went after our wedding. So last Saturday we invited our friend Marko and his wife Delphine for a dinner to check the restaurant before Summer as I am still in search of a good restaurant in Split that offers somewhat upscale dining and innovative menu.
Although with a nice wine list, our choice was clear – we started with 2007 Korta Katarina Pošip. One of our favorite whites these days!
The appetizers were quite interesting so we chose few of them and the most interesting and surprisingly tasty was cuttle fish salad with strawberries! Very good!
The appetizers were followed by the main course and we all opted for fish. Luckily, this place is not only about grilled pieces but also has some more interesting sea food meals that appeal to us who are looking for something different.
However, although nice looking, the dishes could have been a bit smaller as we were almost too full for dessert! And a bottle of Korta Katarina 2007 Plavac did its part as well…
The desserts are definitely worth leaving some room for! The “unfinished strudel”” or whatever the translation is, is simply a must when eating at Adriatic!
After several restaurants that we visited this winter in Split, Restaurant “Adriatic” still stands out as the best choice for good eating in Split. Great wine list is also a big plus!
How to get there? If staying in the center, simply walk down the promenade to ACI Marina where the restaurant is located (not in the marina but in the building next to it). Of course, you can take a taxi but burning all those calories coming back from the restaurant is a big plus!
