First Review by Miru

nice menu - Edit

Very nice daily menu for 70Kn that included a soup as an starter, a side salad and a main dish
You can purchase drinks or desserts as an extra if you like
Hey also have a la carte dinner and lovely rolls full of salads and vegan things
The desserts are lovely!
I definitely recommend this place!
The only down side is the size of the coffees and the matcha latte that were ridiculously small

good food, friendly service, good value for money - Edit

After not finding much vegan food elsewhere I went here three times. First I tried the daily menu (soup, salad, tempura veg, steamed veg, seitan and sauce, millet-pudding), which was great. Also sampled the vegan cake (changed slightly from one day to the next), also good, hemp burger (tasty and good value), seitan burrito and pizza slice (pizza was cold but could have asked them to heat it up), all good. Would have liked to come back and try more things!

Pros: many good, labeled vegan options, friendly service, good value sandwiches/burritos/...

Gute Auswahl 😋 - Edit

Etwas versteckt, aber es lohnt sich. Eine gute Auswahl an vegetarischen und veganen Gerichten, aber auch Sojamilch und sogar vegane Kuchen. Wir hatten den veganen Apfelstrudel und den veganen Schokoladenkuchen. Beides sehr empfehlenswert! Unser Hund durfte auch rein, weil im Innenhof 2 Katzen waren. Tagesmenü mit Suppe und Salat 70 Kuna, also nicht mal 10 €. Hat sehr ansprechend ausgesehen 🙂

Pros: Nähe zum Hafen, günstig und gut

Cons: etwas schwierig zum finden

Good food but don't go at night - Edit

Good food and decent prices but we booked a table for 8pm and the service wasn't that great and the food seemed like it was just reheated. I think it would be better for lunch or afternoon tea. Just seemed like we weren't supposed to be there at that time.

Pros: Nearly everything can be veganized, price is fair,

Cons: Average service, lack of personal, not suited for

Tasty burgers and amazing stuff - Edit

I was in Makro Vega one week ago and I'm still dreaming about their vegan white coffee!
Burgers were incredible and my friend's matcha was as good as my coffee :) we also had sweet patatoes fries. Crispy and delicious!
Totally recommend it

Pros: Tasty cheap food, great coffee, nice stuff that speaks english

Cons: toilet is a little bit scruffy

Vegeterian doesnt always mean healthy... - Edit

I got excited when I saw flyers for this place, so when we received average service on arrival; I got a bit nervous!

Both ordered a beautiful organic green tea to start, then shared a Thai plate and tofu kebab.

The thali plate came with brown rice (you can change from basmati), paneer curry, buttered bread (let them no if you're vegan!), salad with sour cream and deep fried zucchini.

The kebabs are also deep fried, and have two pieces of tofu on each with some brown rice.

A little let down with all the fried food and dairy, and the food was a little bland! It seemed they weren't so interested in the idea of making HEALTHY vegetarian meals, but more in the concept of soothing an emerging market.

Off to find better options for tonight!!

Pros: lots of options , good price

Cons: Dairy in most meals without being noted , A little tasteless, fried foods

great staff but tasteless food - Edit

we did not enjoy the food here, since it wasnt very fresh or 'healthy' looking/tasting as we were expecting. the waitresses were super nice and hospitable, but the lack of coziness indoors as well as outdoors made this quite a bleak dining experience.

Pros: affordable, friendly staff

Cons: tasteless food, lack of decoration

So good! - Edit

We had dinner at Major Vega this evening, we chose the raw zucchini pasta with cashew sauce, vegan Greek salad and seitan cordon bleu. Wow it was so tasty, I don't understand the reviews that say it was bland as it definitely was not. One of the best vegan meals we have had and we have tried a lot :)

Pros: value for money , tasty fresh cooked food

Cons: it was difficult to find

Good food - Edit

Went here last night and the food was good, but not anything exciting. It's nice since it's rather healthy food and not the standard burger and for the prize the menu is great but the flavors are quite bland.

Pros: nice staff , cheap , somewhat healthy

Cons: bland taste

Vegan haven - Edit

I came here for lunch and I wasn't disappointed. Very friendly staff who speak English. Lunch is a set menu affair with a choice of vegan or vegetarian. I had the vegan menu and it was lovely. It's home cooking and simple but very tasty and healthy. I topped my lunch off with a vegan choccy cake that was delicious and massive. It's close to the old town and there are signs which are a great help as Google maps failed!

Pros: Hearty vegan food, friendly staff and centrally located , Vegan cake!

Cons: A little simple

After days of empty stomachs and chips filled dinners we were delighted to finally walk upon a place that would serve us a decent vegan meal. The owner - who is vegan herself was really lovely and we had plenty of options. It's a bit hard to find but worth the struggle

Same good quality 2 years later - Edit

I visited Makrovega in 2015 and absolutely loved the place, the food and the staff. Now, 2 years later, having the opportunity of visiting Split again, I was greeted with the same good food, by the friendly staff and their cute fluffy cat (which put on some weight in the meantime :D) The vegan daily menu was plentiful: vegetable and bean soup and the main course consisted of grilled seitan, baked mushrooms, polenta with soy yogurt, steamed cabbage and other greens, tofunaise and ketchup sauce and a small salad on the side. The barley coffee with soy milk was also great.

Pros: Very large portions for the daily vegan menu, fair

Cons: Seemed too crowded on Saturdays (which is a sign t

Lots of Plant Based Vegan Options at Good Prices - Edit

My husband and I came here for a quick lunch. We had pizza, a wrap with curry tofu, and apple strudel. The food was served chilled, but it was still good. The pizza was interesting because it had shredded carrots that looked like cheese and finely shredded tofu that looked like cheese.

We really enjoyed the food because it was packed with veggies and fruit, and no to little oil. We felt great after eating. The owner is very nice and helpful too.

Pros: good price, plant based, no oil, healthy food

Nice little place - Edit

I went here for lunch and there were a few vegan options, we (my partner and I) went for a slice of pizza (tasty, stacked with toppings) and a mushroom salad baguette. Unfortunately, the person at the counter gave us a cheese (dairy) one instead, which in our hunger we only noticed half way through the sandwich!! The owner arrived soon after and was apologetic for the mistake her colleague had made (she had also told us a vast cheesecake was vegan - it wasn't!!). Would have enjoyed the meal a lot more without this mixup....

Pros: Decent options, Suny courtyard, Secluded and quiet

Cons: Gave wrong information on ingredients :(, Limited drinks options, no fresh juices

Disappointing experience - Edit

Having read the reviews on here and trip advisor we were excited to finally have a little more choice than a bowl of pasta or a cheese less pizza midway through our trip through Croatia; however our excitement was unfounded. We both chose the vegan daily special, the restaurant posts daily specials, and for just 70 kuna you can dine on soup, special main, tempura side and a salad (£9 per person)

Our 'daily special' menu consisted of a vegetable & chickpea soup which sadly was tasteless and tepid. spaghetti with tomato sauce - this was the most flavoursome of all the dishes however it was only lukewarm; a side of greasy and floppy tempura veg, overcooked boiled cabbage and carrots and a stone cold piece of tofu lasagne. The side salad was tasty and well dressed.

Really disappointing, needless to say we won't rush back

Pros: lots of veggie and vegan choices, Attractive restaurant, food serve quickly

Cons: food was cold, veg was overcooked, Soup was tepid and tasteless

my favorite restaurant in my hometown - Edit

Best vegan food in my hometown and beyond :) I ate there so many times during the years or ordered food from there, even ordered a cake for my wedding there and took recipes from their web page for the wedding (which took place outside of Split, otherwise I'd have them do the catering!) Perfect, yummy food, huge portions, inexpensive, great cakes, everything is great!

Pros: delicious food, portion size, inexpensive

Cons: vegetarian options :/

Nom nom! Delicious food and friendly staff. - Edit

Absolutely loved Makro Vega. The food is delicious, especially the daily menu (which is vegetarian but can always be made vegan), the seitan burritos, and the vegan desserts! It's a god-send in Split, where the only other vegan/veggie place is near the bus station and is fast food style.

The staff is also super friendly and warm...not typical for Split. Fantastic place.

Pros: Vegan Dessert, Daily Menu, Cheap Options

Vegan heaven - Edit

This is definitely a must if you visit Split. I ate here dozens of times and it's likely one of my favorite vegan restaurants ever.

They offer a daily plate which includes a salad, a soup and an usual great main dish. Might not be the most tasty for everyone (as you see on the reviews) so you could ask for some salt if you like.

Desserts are great and the wraps they sell are also an good option to take away if you don't have time to eat at the place or need something for the dinner.

If you're on a budget, definitely try the wraps and other stuff in the counter, for the 2nd year in a row I come here, have lunch then take some of those for dinner.
