Fifty years after it was closed down, Villa Rosina finally opened it’s doors as one of the Split’s latest restaurants. The location: Bacvice beach, the view: million dollars, the restaurant: long way to go… First, the location and this classical building soon-to-be a boutique-hotel are simply the best in Split. The spacious garden, fairly private location and wonderful setting, make this place probably the best wedding spot in Split after Mestrovic Gallery.
But the service is not at the level it should be. There should be someone at the entrance to show a guest to the table and not the lounge bar area, to recommend seating and food. It is just begging for fist class service.
But even the waiter who was serving us was poorly educated and had almost no knowledge of the daily menu, food, champagne offer for the day… Just too many small details that really make a difference.
So, instead of a day old champagne, we continued with a bottle of Korak sauvignon and ordered the food hopping that at least that will go beyond mediocre…
The food was ok. But just ok. It lacked innovation, modern touch… or classic experience in a classic settings would be nice! But instead we got something that was half way there…wherever “there” is.
Again, everything was ok but nothing beyond that. Not good enough for a place of such potential! I want to see fabulous and innovative food, modern dishes and spectacular palette of tastes coming out of their kitchen! This place has everything to be the best restaurant in Split but it falls short on basics. Of course, it is their first few months but still… I do plan to go there again and enjoy the view but also the food.
Again, for spectacular settings, this is the place in Split but for food and service, I guess we’ll have to wait. Definitely looking forward to see a hotel opening here as this would be ideal for our clients!
