Just outside the Palace on one of the narrow medieval streets slanting away from Narodni trg, Zinfandels lays down a contemporary gauntlet to all the ancient stonework of Split’s Old Town, with matt-black interior, clever lighting and suave design touches. It’s primarily a wine bar (with a good selection of Dalmatian tipples by the glass) but you also get a menu of Mediterranean food (dainty portions rather than stomach fillers) and some really quite excellent platters for sharing – cold cuts, cheeses and marinated seafood.
