Start your day by the southern town gate with smooth coffee and the appetizing tuna toast. At the same time, you can hear the locals at the next table complain about the heat and comment that they can’t remember a summer like this one.

Start talking to them, it’s priceless!

It would be a shame to miss lunch in a small family restaurant where every detail is carefully chosen and the staff is always smiling and friendly. And the food? Fish, crabs and shellfish, lamb, veal, homemade prosciutto, Dalmatian spices and the traditional Trogir dessert rafiol

Rafiol is a special story because every place has its own way of preparing this delicacy. You can find this traditional specialty in Sinj, Makarska, Imotski, Split, Trogir, and even on the island of Korčula. Trogir rafiol stands out for its long-standing tradition, as well as the legend associated with it. The legend follows a young girl, Rafioli, who, imprisoned in the Kamerlengo fortress, was waiting for her beloved to free her. She spent her days in captivity baking these delicious cakes. A nobleman from Trogir frees the girl and brings her to his court, where she bakes ravioli for him for the rest of her life.

Every family in Trogir has its own secret way of baking this dessert, and this secret is passed down from generation to generation.

Dalmatia is full of flavors, each of them unique and unrepeatable. Apart from the fact that it tastes out of this world, it’s quite clear why people in restaurants bend over the food while taking pictures of it from all angles (hint: beetroot risotto with truffles doesn’t need any filters).

Just a minute walk left from the town gate, all the way down the promenade, there is a restaurant- pizzeria Riva. From the end of April to November, the Riva gives you pleasure to enjoy the Mediterrannean flavours in a relaxing family atmosphere.
