Konoba Varoš, Ban Mladenova, Split, Croatia

Although it doesn't look too promising from the outside, Konoba Varoš attracts a steady stream of locals and in-the-know tourists. Arrive early enough and you can sit in one of the cluttered rooms in the cavernous interior or one of the shaded tables out the front.  The risottos here are very good: The ingredients are fresh and plump, and the food is expertly cooked. A seafood or scampi risotto costs 78 kuna, as does the seafood linguini, while the black cuttlefish risotto is 85 kuna. A beer is just 16 kuna, while a big bottle of water is 15 kuna. The waiters dress in traditional costume and vary from cheerful to grumpy, depending on who you get. 7/10
