L'avis de Gault&Millau

As this year, due to the lockdown, we couldn’t unfortunately visit the restaurant Štorija, we publish the review and the score by Gault&Millau Croatia 2020 but we must inform you that the famous chef Ivan Pažanin is no longer their chef. Štorija is a new and very ambitious restaurant in the heart of Split, on the waterfront (the famous Split’s riva) located in the unique setting of the magnificent authentic walls of the palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. The place is truly impressive: the stone walls are a thousand and seven hundred years old. The height of the ceiling under the authentic arcades, the refined interior with elegant furniture and the affected lighting will completely enchant you. The perfect blend of antiquity and modern design. In front of the restaurant on the waterfront, Štorija has its own nice terrace, where you can take a coffee or drink during the day and have dinner in the evening. The waiters are very professional and helpful. Dishes are carefully selected and presented. The menu is defined with the optimal number of dishes that can satisfy both foreign and local tastes. From simple anchovies, to tuna, shrimp and lobster, but also to meat dishes such as duck breast and veal cheeks. In addition to the preparation of the dishes, this restaurant pays special attention to the aesthetics of their presentation, both in composition and use of matching china. Here, too, there is tuna tartare, served on a nice black plate, with bits of dried figs on the side and fine spices. The sea urchin risotto had a nice texture, but we expected a slightly stronger sea taste. The lobster pappardelle were excellent, both in quality and presentation. We finished our meal with creative chocolate and lemon desserts, prepared with local ingredients like almonds, figs, lemons and honey. In the wine list you will find leading Croatian and international wine labels. If you are in Split, do not miss having dinner in Štorija, in this unique palace where 17 centuries ago the Emperor Diocletian was ruling and today one of the most popular Croatian chefs and television star, Ivan Pažanin is holding court.
