Another small but mighty stronghold of Split’s new gastronomy scene is owned by young spouses Sara and Toni Vrsalović. It’s based right next to the Iron or Western Gate of the Diocletian’s Palace, which was designated to be used by the Roman emperor's guard. Now, there is this contemporarily designed indoor space, beside a shady and pleasant terrace in the backyard of one of Split’s medieval palaces. Mazzgoon is named after Dalmatian word for mule (mazga), known for its never-say-die persistence. Its cuisine is also a combination of traditional regional dishes and international influences. You’ll find excellent Dalmatian brodetto, with home-made pasta from Korčula, but there is also a shrimp burger and street-food varieties. Mazzgoon is also a source of new happenings in town: its menu is also a monthly magazine called Mazzgoon Times, with news about Split’s culinary and clubbing scene. Nice touch.

Great service. Beautiful location. If you can get a seat in the garden your surrounded by the old stone and small windows.
We had the antipasti starter. Priced a 100kn. Huge. Great selection of meats and home made dips. This would make a great lunch with bread and a bottle of wine instead of a starter.
Mains we had the wild rabbit with home made pasta. Shredded rabbit meat, almost like a bolognese. Very taisty.
Also the Fish Tecada with home made pasta. This is a small dish but full of sea treats in a tangy red source.
Altogether fantastic dinner. A must go.
