On this page, I’m going to talk about Split restaurant prices trends in the upcoming tourist season. However, even for me as a local, it’s not that easy to predict with accuracy what will be the prices range.
From my experience, most of visitors look for a single meal price. They usually seek for a reasonably priced restaurants in Split city. Couples are normally on the lookout for romantic restaurants with three-course meals.
In order to answer these questions, let me give you at least some hints on the price range. This will be useful to keep in mind when you want to have lunch or dinner.
The first advice concerns the restaurants position. Those near the famous city attraction points tend to be generally more expensive. Restaurants along Riva promenade, Peristyle square, Marmont’s street or around Republic Square (Prokurativa), keep the prices higher. But food is not necessarily better.
On the other side, there are restaurants away from the Old Town where you will eat enjoying the magnificent view but you will pay more. But unfortunately even there the food isn’t always of the best quality.
