The gastronomic offer in Split is enriched every year, and currently you can eat a really large number of both local and international dishes in the heart of Split. These are just some of the best restaurants in their category, and you can always find something to your liking on gastronomic guides and Trip Advisor thanks to many filters. However, the TripAdvisor list is really not the best place to look at the ranking, considering that an establishment that offers fish & chips (and is essentially fast food, and is managed under the name of a restaurant) can threaten a top restaurant in the ranking due to a larger volume of business and a greater number of good reviews . That's why when searching for restaurants, always be guided by the category and type of food you would like to try in Split.
