Being based around Marina Kaštela right from our first summer here in Croatia meant that we got to know Kaštela pretty well. With our yacht trips beginning and/or ending here, we got to know the restaurants and food offerings in the area pretty quickly!
And we loved it here in Kaštela so much that it was our first choice for where we wanted to look for an apartment. With easy proximity to the airport, Split city and Trogir, we still think that Kaštela is a great place to introduce to all of our guests, friends and family. We’ve been here a couple of years now, and we feel like we have really honed in on which restaurants we really love. The ones we go back to all the time!
If you find yourself out here in Kaštela, here is a list of the restaurants that we recommend:
Intrada, Kaštel Stari
This restaurant is part of the fabric of Kaštela. Serving hearty Croatian fare, we warn you that the portions are very VERY generous! You know you’re onto a winner when you’re rubbing shoulders with locals. Sit inside and appreciate the very Croatian decor or sit out on the terrance and soak up the sea view across the road. Either way, you win!
Mala Mora, Kaštel Lukšić
Our new favourite! Newly opened in 2020, the former Twister Bar’ got a serious upgrade. Maximising on an already fabulous location, this new contender in the restaurant scene in Kaštela offers alfresco dining right on the water or indoor seating with classy, slick decor. With fresh, creative takes on Dalmatian classics, a great wine list and delicious cocktails, this restaurant is on our DO NOT MISS list!
Odmor, Kaštel Kambelovac
Another local gem, this Croatian restaurant prides itself on not offering pizza or fries. Just good old fashioned Croatian food to enjoy under the shade of the vine leaves. Open year round, this restaurant is well-known for it’s generous portions and hearty atmosphere.
B Cool Brewery and Pub, Kaštel Lukšič
Another new kid on the block, this open air pub and eatery (with indorr seating as well) has pretty much everything that you could want! From breakfast to nibbles, pizzas, loaded salads and a huge range of beers, from the incredible view to being a stones throw away from the beach.
Krespo, Kaštel Štafilić
Don’t let the word ‘bar’ in the name put you off. This cafe serves coffee tea and cold drinks, has an amazing pancake menu (pancakes in Croatia are thin crepe style), loads of outdoor seating, an amazing outlook over the bay and even a play area for the kids!
