If you're in the centre and looking for a cheap and quick meal on the go, you won't find a great deal of variety besides the conventional supply of pizza, ćevapi and pastries. Located on Teslina, the new Marinada is a welcome addition, providing fantastically fresh Adriatic seafood and fish for under fifty kuna (€7).
Owner and head chef Krešimir Kolman takes a straightforward approach to a menu where fish is the star ingredient. Delicious, unpretentious and cheap, the restaurant nods towards the simple hole-in-the-wall style konobas typical of the Dalmatia region. The most expensive dish on the menu is priced at 55 kuna - many options cost significantly less.
Specials change with the season, but you can expect to tuck into sizzlingly fresh fish cakes, grilled sardines and smoked fish with generous portions of potato salad, sides of greens and whatever produce the chef picks up at Dolac market in the morning. When the weather gets colder the menu will incorporate warming cuttlefish stews and sardine brudettos with crusty peka bread alongside the grilled fish.
