We ate lunch here on two successive days. It was wonderful; a pleasant oasis of calm in the busy Diocletian Palace. The waiters were charming. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Chose Portofino as a place to eat on our last night in Split and so glad we did. It was by far the best dining experience of our stay there. Great meal, awesome service and the ambiance of the place was excellent. Highly recommended.

Excellent service and amazing food. Great and cozy surroundings. It is hidden behind buildings, so you have to keep an eye out for it. I highly recommend it.

We are organizing business trips to Split and we have been to Portofino with our groups several times. Everytime again it is amazing! Great hospitality, great food, great drinks and great service on an excellent atmospheric square in the city centre. See you next time!
