Dine Dalmatian Food For Cheap – Although not approaching the kind of prices charged in Dubrovnik, Split is no longer an easy option for the budget traveler. Gone are the days when every eatery offered seafood pasta and the catch of the day. Split has gone gastronomic. Nevertheless, there are still places where your kunas can stretch a little further. For years, the inimitable Buffet Fife was the wallet-friendly mainstay, set just in from the seafront. It’s still very popular, but now almost too popular, so prepare to have to wait to be seated. Still, portions and prices of classic Dalmatian dishes are still generous.
Just as the Fife is in every guidebook, so the Dioklecijan, known by locals as the Tri Volta (TheMladichi), is invariably overlooked. Yet, set within the sea-facing walls of the Diocletian’s Palace, it can provide the best prosciutto in town, as well as standard local dishes and drinks at knock-down prices. This restaurant has been here for 40 years. There is no fancy signs and only very few tourist come in. It’s know as Tri Volta (three windows arches) looking at Riva promenade.
The place is not decorated in a fashionable way. Crowd is mixed, young and old, many people know each other, and the atmosphere is convivial. Food is simple and homemade, it is an excellent place to taste a working class Dalmatian plates. Dishes start from 40 kuna and among Split restaurants prices are the lowest you can find.
Honestly speaking besides outdoor terrace with the best view on Riva this is very intersting place to spend some time while you are in Split.
