Coming the spring and in the warmer days, we are looking for places in a city of Split with outdoor seating and drinking coffee. One of them is the next one. Just 10 minutes walk from the Diocletian’s Palace is situated a Restaurant Perivoj. The most important part of the restaurant is a park or perivoj, a green oasis with aromatic Mediterranean plants, palm trees, cypress, roses, etc. In the middle of the park, there is a large stone fountain with golden fish of white stone.
Before, the house was a family villa designed by architect Kamil Tončić in 1922. The house was built in the spirit of the Secession. The most interesting faces are definitely south-facing, which features a glazed veranda, various reliefs, stone pillars, etc. The interior is very small, but interesting because it has details of the original interior from the twentieth century.
I always stop here for a cup of coffee and cakes. My favorite cake is tiramisu. The choice of cakes is not so big, but all offered are very tasty. If you are coming for lunch, I would like to recommend that you take a three-course meal. The price for one person is just 100 kuna. The offer of dishes is mostly Mediterranean although during the last visit we saw a featured offer of pizzas. On TripAdvisor, they received a great rating of 4.5 (link).
The staff is very professional (had high knowledge about the food and wine) and pleasant. During beautiful sunny and warm days, it is definitely a place you have to visit. At the same time here you will be protected from city noise as well as having the opportunity to eat something delicious. I love to come here every month with my family or friends.
