Even with the tourist influx of recent years and sudden arrival of top-quality bistros, the budget-conscious traveller can still find places to dine in Split without having to overload the credit card or resort to pizza. In and around the historic centre is a selection of spots usually preferred by Croatians, with an ever higher ratio of foreign visitors in summer.
Though a couple of notches above the average tavern, Šperun keeps its prices reasonable, particularly if you plump for the daily specials. The fish is fresh, the seafood too, and you’ll always find a decent variety of vegetables to accompany. Here, the little details matter, so the olive oil is top-quality, the staff attentive and the wine of good standard.
