We all seek authenticity, the best produce, and the most comfortable surroundings but sometimes a true local experience means spotty service, loud kitchen staff, crowded seating, and cheap wine; that’s Fife for you, a truly authentic and affordable Split institution. The city is cluttered with charming eateries serving up traditional fare but Fife has managed to keep their status on the dining scene for years; this is local food on a budget.
Even locals will suggest this place as the must-visit, prototypical konoba (tavern) to explore laid back culinary culture. It is after all a popular spot for local sailors, hipsters, and philosophers. Chances are you will share a table with other guests and chances are you’ll actually meet some folks here, other than just exchanging the odd chinwag. Fife really has a lively vibe and the grumpy yet loving service gives this place character. Fife offers a daily selection of hearty specialties such as tingul, a chicken tomato pot spiced with cloves, grilled fish with Swiss chard and potatoes, lamb and peas, black cuttlefish risotto, fried sardines, tripe, grilled meats, and much more.
Fife is located on the seafront further down from Riva along Trumbiceva obala, just three minutes away from the tourist buzz. Since their humble beginnings they have expanded across the road so in essence Fife has two dining rooms and a terrace with a bench set-up.
