O'zlata: Your Golden Ticket to Culinary Perfection

Tucked away in an ancient alleyway in the historic core of Split’s old town is O’zlata, fresh to the thriving Split restaurant scene but already making the taste buds tingle of gastronomers near and far.

The name O’zlata translates in the Croatian language to “of gold”, which is more than fitting once you realise that the restaurant actually resides in the 15th Century Golden Gate courtyard inside the royal palace of Diocletian - a setting unlike any other in the famous Dalmatian capital.

Because the beauty of the space speaks for itself, the design elements of the restaurant have been carefully crafted to ensure the acute accents etched in history are complimented. Delicate white chairs and tabletops with Mediterranean blue adornments sparkle the outside terrace while shining gold trimmings and mid-century furniture pieces supplement the rich, hardwood floors inside. O’zlata unites contemporary chic and intimate elements with the perfect twist of Mediterranean flair - making the environment delightful for everyone to enjoy.


While we can spend all day gushing about the heavenly atmosphere, O’zlata’s menu is what gathers the true players in the gastronomy game. Having introduced the highly respected chef Braco Sanjin this spring, the menu at O’zlata takes you on a culinary excursion through Adriatic flavours, signature appetisers, and Dalmatian specialities using only the freshest and locally sourced ingredients.

The 20 or so dishes on the menu are perfect to be paired with the 80 or so (and growing) wines the restaurant offers, from Croatian favourites to international standouts. And if you happen to enjoy cocktails more, a burgeoning cocktail list will be sure to thrill your palate. They even have freshly squeezed juices and smoothies, too.

Even more admirable of a place already so admired is the wine nights and themed dinners on offer for the avid foodies and wine connoisseurs in Split. Over the last few months, O’zlata has hosted evenings as simple as “wine and bite” soirees and wine pairing dinners to full-fledged ladies nights, Argentine evenings, and gastronomic tours through the traditional meals of the 1920s. Where else in Split does this exist?

Truly the pearl of the Split restaurant scene, O’zlata is the royal locale to live your culinary fairytale.
