We ate in this restaurant twice while in trogir. First time we were very impressed with the experience, food was good and service was good and we were able to pay with credit card. We had an issue in trogir with not being able to withdraw cash using our bankcards so we returned to this restaurant knowing food was good and credit card could be used. Meal was not quite as good on the second occasion and at the end we were told they did not accept credit cards. My husband mentioned that he had used a credit card no problems two nights previously but they said that could not have been possible. Funnily enough their name appeared on our credit card bill when we got home, so looks like we were right, we had paid on credit card first time. This experience at the end of the meal overshadowed the good food and service we had received up to that point. I hate to be lied to and felt we were being conned, but was unsure why they had done this. Makes you wonder what else they 'lie' about on the menu/bill

We were coerced by a sharp talking waiter- owner to eat there as we were walking by. He starts off by suggesting a bottle of wine at 180 Kuna. A . 25l carafe is usually is usually 12 to 14 Kuna. I decided to have the calamari as I did for lunch at Fontana Kod Zeca being that the server said their rendition was so much better but different. The tooth and the backbone were left in the squid; the server had to show us how to extract these so one does not choke. The meal was overly priced and there was a lot of noise. At the last minute the said the credit card machine was not functioning and something about taxes. I believe the is some income declaration hanky panky.

We were going to try another restaurant and stumbled in here by accident, good thing.
As we were looking at the menu outside, a waiter came by (tom or tony?) and asked if we had questions.
I asked about a fish plate (as this area specializes in seafood) and he kindly went over the fish options w/me.
We decided yup, we'll eat here. We got the fish platter for 2 ppl and it was amazing. It came w/sea bass and bream, mussels, squid, scampi, and potatoes. Amazing! Then the server brought out some of the house made olive oil...OMG. I'm not an olive oil person, but this was so good over the fish that I asked if I could buy a litre. Unfortunately, they didn't have enough to sell me :(
The fish was cooked perfectly...light and tender. The mussels were Ok, scampi slightly overcooked, the squid was ridiculously good.
After we finished dinner, another server (pete) came out to chat w/us along w/tom/tony. It was like having an impromptu dinner w/friends. When tom-ton brought us the bill, he also brought some hard liquormto complete our meal. I had the house limoncello (so amazing I bought a bottle of that) and Matt had some of their version of brandy (firewater basically). The limoncello has a hint of orange zest making it more complex and waaay better than its italian counterpart.

High recommend this place if you'd like some quality seafood and good people to talk to.

GRAVY AND SALAD
Certain food groups just do not belong together, lobster and fried egg, mussels and custard and – you would think- gravy and salad – think again!

Konoba TOMA is situated in the old town of Trogir on Šubićeva street. This is situated near the north boundary of the city. If you position yourself by the wooden arc bridge by the market (you'll know which one when you see it), face the city walls and turn slightly to your right the street is just about in front of you.

Stopping there the other night the head waiter recommended a Dalmatian speciality, Pašticada. This involves marinading beef in a mixture of wine, vinegar, lemon and rosemary for at least 24 hours. The meat is slowly stewed in this mixture and served up with gnochhi or other plain vegatables. The result is a serving of beef that does not need a knife to cut it and a gravy that has obviously been filched from the Gods own pantry.

My wife was dining on a mixed salad and as you do we were pinching forkfulls off each others plates. Surprise surprise the gravy went extremely well with the salad!

The waiter ( who had spent ten years in America) exlained the secret was to use the finest and freshest ingredients and prepare and cook with care. To finish we had a type of Dalmatian creme caramel. The whole meal was superb and very reasonably priced. Dining like most restaurants in Trogir is al fresco.
