Bepa Restaurant Review, Split, Croatia
For our first day in Split, we headed to Bepa for lunch. This restaurant serves meat, vegetarian, and vegan dishes. Google gives it 4.3-star review, but Happy Cow only rates it as 3 stars. You should note that any restaurant serving meat can only have a maximum rating for 4 stars on the Happy Cow website, so I guess you could say it’s rated as 3.75.
The food is Mediterranean and includes small plates, main plates, sweet plates, breakfast dishes (until 3pm), and platters to share.
Out of 19 dishes on the menu, three are vegan and one is vegetarian.
I chose the Avocado & Eggs, while my wife chose the Eggs Benedict. Both dishes were well-presented and tasty. I thought the portions were quite small though and the price fairly expensive. The bill came to 26.54 EUR for the two dishes and a bottle of sparkling water.
The previous day, we had very similar meals in Zagreb. The portions were bigger and the bill was only 15 EUR. Split seems to have got a lot more expensive than the last time we were here. There are more up-market restaurants and fewer general restaurants in the city center.
It’s sad, but I was still hungry after eating there.
Many of our favorite restaurants in Split have closed down, which is a great shame. The main tourist areas of town are pretty deserted with main shops shut down. I assume that many will re-open as we get closer to the high season, but I wouldn’t recommend visiting at the moment. A cold and deserted town with many closed shops doesn’t have much to offer.
Bepa is a nice restaurant though, and I would recommend it. It’s located on Pjaca Square in the old town. The location is beautiful. It’s one of my favorite squares in Split.
Bepa has seating both inside and outside. It was fairly empty when we ate there on a Friday lunchtime.
Bepa is open from 08:00 to 22:00 every day.
