A little hard to find because it is sooo mini but really just off the square just outside the palace walls. Worth hunting for! Two tiny two-person tables in the narrow alleyway are the only places to sit for this mostly takeaway sushi restaurant. Great...sushi and oysters. BOTA supplies oysters for most of the restaurants that serve them in Split from their private fishing fleet.More

Don't think twice, the front of the bar should not be the judge of what you are about to taste Wasabi just smooth enough to not make you cry, real sexy sushis and gin tonic to get you good hyped. Ps: friendly served !

The restaurant is in the middle of a very busy street inside the old town with only two seats. Be ready that everyone passing by will stare at your food if you eat there. They do offer take out with 20% off. The fish was...very fresh (our tuna was captured that morning) but the sushi overall was just ok. The rice was certainly not Japanese sushi rice and not cooked to the right temperature and texture so it easily falls apart. I guess you can’t expect much from sushi here. The service was also a bit slow (our car got towed outside the old town while we were eating here) so be careful where you drive.More

Delicious Sushi, reasonably priced and very friendly staff. Small restaurant so felt like a priviledge to get a table! Thank you so much :)

I went to Mini Bota on the strength of very generous reviews on TripAdvisor. It’s not the “best sushi ever” but perhaps it’s the best sushi in Split. Sushi tasted fresh but was pretty average. There only 2 tables so it’s a nice option if...someone wants sushi takeout while in Split. I did not try the oysters. If you don’t expect great sushi, you may avoid disappointment.More

Me and my wife had some food in this bar twice and everytime everything was just perfect. We nad sushi/maki, tuna tartar and tuna teriyaki - all of them were delicious and fantastic. The staff was so very nice and helpful that it needs to...be pointed out - well done👍. We also tried sushi in other restaurants nearby but none of them were so good. We can recommend this sushi bar with all our hearts.🙂 We will surely come back there as soon as we are in Split.More

We are from California and have had a lot of oysters but these were the best we’ve had. They only have 2 tables so we did a quick to go order. Staff is super nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

The menu was very unique. We tried things we never had before and we have tried ALOT of different restaurants. The shrimp carpaccio was definitely something we never had and it was amazing. The sushi was fresh and the oysters were great. Good place for...lunch.More
