UJE Oil Bar

Dalmatian comfort food


Restaurant Uje Oil Bar opened in 2013 and quickly gained attention among the foodies in Split and Croatia. Stylish, bistro-style interior is warm and welcoming, stuff is kind and food is beautifully traditional with a great twist. Their menu is based on olive oil and autochthonous flavors and largely depends on the availability of fresh, local foods. Specialties such as homemade ice cream with olive oil, bruschetta with sauerkraut and shrimp or sipa on Venetian style are some of their bestsellers.

They have tables outside on the lovely cobbled street or you can have a cozy dinner inside. Restaurant is also olive oil/delicatessen shop with a small selection of mains, several tapas-style dishes and olive-oil tasting options. Rustic light-wood interiors are charming, as are alfresco seats in the alley. Restaurant and wine bar an excellent addition to the normal oil shop. The location is also a plus though it’s in the palace it’s away from the hustle and bustle of that area so you can have a nice quiet dinner here and get away from the crowds in the large squares and the Riva. The menu here is seasonal and changes from day to day but there are a few permanent fixtures on the menu. One of them is the Olive Oil Experience which is three types of olive oil based dips with fresh bread.

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy your breakfast, Uje Oil Bar is a great choice. They have a morning menu for a most important meal of a day which will give you the energy before starting your adventure. They offer different versions of breakfast, which will pleased everyone’s appetites and morning routine. If you’re are a person who doesn’t eat much during the morning you can just order a coffee to wake you up.

Make sure you stop in earlier in the day for a reservation – but worth not having to wait.

  1. “Beyond Amazing ”

    Great stop – a must in your trip in Split.
    Try the “Olive Oil Experience” approx 38kuna – worth it! You get to try 4 olive oil products with fresh homemade bread.
    In addition we picked the two cheese board, adding prsut and had a couple of glasses of red wine. Service is excellent and quality of all food and drink is of a high level. You are also able to purchase the different oils, spreads etc at this spot – best once you’ve had a chance to try the products.
    Your food/drink purchases will be charged separately to your in-store, take-home purchases.

  2. “Great Experience”

    My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Uje Oil Bar! This place was recommended to us by our Air BnB host, and it did not disappoint. It took us a little effort to navigate the tiny streets in the palace, but it was a fun walk and the location is cute, quaint, and unique. We had the bruschetta and the olive oil experience as starters. I highly recommend the olive oil experience, it was phenomenal. Service was great, food was appetizing, overall experience was worth it. Prices are moderate – you could do a lot worse at tourist traps in the palace. You get what you pay for, and the food and wine were on par.

  3. Lovely and small menu, local Croatian wine was mellow, tuna steak pasta was flavoursome and fresh, pork was plentiful and very tender. Desserts were local and delicious.

  4. After a long walk looking for a place for lunch in Split old town, our choice was Uje Oil Bar. Service was good, wine excellent and food excellent. Quality in service was very good and price reasonable. One of the best lunches in Split – not fine dining but good sea food. I recommend absolutely!
