Hidden in the narrow streets of Diocletian’s Palace, is located one of the best restaurants in Split, Bokeria Kitchen & Wine Bar. As an architect, the thing that caught the eye was a very nice interior. Every detail is carefully planned. The thing I liked the most was a bar with Spanish tiles as a detail while above the bar are big hams of Prosciutto as an example of local food which is typical for Dalmatia county.
The ambience at Bokeria is superb
The core of the whole place is a big chandelier which dominates the whole space and is as big as it is through two floors. The restaurant is very chic: contemporary design with high care of the details without becoming trivial. The restaurant could easily be in NY or Milano without any adaptation.
Bokeria Kitchen & Wine Bar Menu
My girlfriend and I are faithful guests every Sunday. The most important thing is that the people are very friendly, the staff is professional and the food is excellent there. Their menu includes traditional food that is escalated and enhanced with great flavours! It’s a bit pricey, but it is worth every penny (or lipa hehe). Dishes are starting at 20$, and vines at 35$.
The dessert menu is also interesting. They bring all the dessert options in front of you instead of just a menu printed on the paper. The dessert is our favourite part of what this restaurant offers.
Excellent local wines
I highly recommend going there for local wine tasting. They offer a wide range of good local wines to try. The waiter even gave us a free taste of the suggested wine, to help us decide. We decided on local wine called Prošip. It is white wine grape, generally light bodied, around 12-13% in alcohol. The primary and most productive growing regions are on the island of Korčula with small amounts on the Pelješac Peninsula.
In the restaurant Bokeria Kitchen & Wine, every time our server was very helpful and attentive. He is always somewhere around us (and that’s the right thing to do). Like every year, Bokeria during Advent time has the special decoration. It’s getting real Christmas spirit. The thing we liked the most was the Christmas tree. It was made in an interesting way, from empty bottles of wine. We have a strong feeling that we will be back very soon.
