An informal eatery serving Mexican dishes and more, close to Split’s ferry port.

Black Cat scored immediate success when it opened in 2006, both with locals and visitors. Offering something different from the omnipresent Dalmatian seafood, it has an eclectic menu featuring Mexican, Thai, Indian, American and Mediterranean cooking. The friendly, generous portions are reasonably priced too. They used to do breakfast, but now cover lunch and dinner only.

Food and drink

Black Cat does excellent fresh salads (which make a meal in themselves), Cajun fish, vegetarian lasagna, chicken fajitas, quesadillas, and pork chop curry with grilled apples, served with naan bread.

Recommended dishes

The Mexican dishes are a winner – try the chicken fajitas (tortilla filled with chicken, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and spicy salsa) or quesadillas (tortilla filled with cheese - ideal for vegetarians).

Ambience

The interior is a little dated, but most people come here to eat outside on the covered terrace, surrounded by potted plants, across the street from the kitchen.

Service

The waiters are helpful and friendly. Service can get a bit chaotic when they are busy.

Location

It's in a narrow side street, a 10-minute walk east of the old town, past the open-air market, behind the ferry port and bus and train stations.

Price advice

Prices are very reasonable - you can eat a decent meal for 100 kuna per person.
