Olive Tree Restaurant opens on Split’s waterfront Riva

The handsome interior of the new Olive Tree restaurant on the Riva in Split

Last night, Split’s newest “fine dining” restaurant opened–the Olive Tree, smack on the waterfront Riva.  The interior is quite handsome with a lovely balcony and filigree wrought iron screen, exposed stone walls, comfortable seating and large aquariums soon to hold all sorts of delectable sea critters.

Not in the photo above, but in the center of the restaurant, is a single, gorgeous, mature olive tree that looks to be at least 25 years old….I ‘ll ask the owner when I go for a meal.

The place is open long hours (9AM-2AM), seven days a week and once again proves that Split is finally becoming a year round restaurant city.  Although a lot of new restaurants are smaller bistros, with the kind of rent that is being charged for prime Riva/inside the Palace locations (10,000Euros a month has been mentioned as the going rate for Riva property),more and more Split restaurants will be open year round to help pay the bills.
