Trattoria Bajamont
Restaurant
Bajamontijeva 3 , Split; Tel.: 355-356
Trattoria Bajamonti, located on the northwest corner of Diocletian's Palace, is known to the locals as the "restaurant under the clock" because it is located near the famous sundial in the main square. It's a low key, authentic, bohemian-style konoba and a must for anyone wanting to dine on traditional Dalmatian food. Bajamont serves up seafood dishes and specialties that are purchased daily at the fish market; meat is a rarity on the menu. The authentic atmosphere of local life in Split is felt at Bajamont.
