Excellent simple Croatian Food

We ate there twice on our visit to Hvar and both times the food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Our waiter was very helpful and described the dishes perfectly. We ate in the upper terrace area and once we had a regular table but the second time we were sat at a low table which was a... read more

I think there are maybe 5 tables in a small house halfway up the old town. Service is very friendly and the food is truly great. You can snack or have a full meal. Keyword search-vegetarian and vegan options.

Hvar definitely does not suffer from a shortage of restaurants, especially in the warren of narrow cobblestoned streets off of Trg Svetog Stjepana, so we were happy to have already made a reservation here and not have to worry about last minute decision making. After climbing the stairs leading part way up to the Fortress, we were glad to see... More

Very popular Konobo with local cuisine. We tried Chefs secret chicken and the Beef gnocchi which were both flavoursome. The service was great, the waiter helpful and friendly topped off with lovely local wine

A very typical tavern on the stairs to the fortress. Old, a bit dark, traditional. Formerly served only cold food, now has at least one hot of the day. Reserve because demand is high. And then accept what they suggest you to eat. We ate a mixed plate of marinated fish and vegetables, a fried fish, a stuffed pepper. Typical... More

First off - you need to book - I think there are only about 10-12 tables. You'll pass this on the hike up the cobbled stairs to the old fort. Family owned and run with a real passion for authentic Hvar/Croatian food. Very rustic and simple but packed full of flavours and adventure. Tiny menu but be guided by the... More

This is exactly as the majority of reviews say.. Good simple traditional Croatian cooking. The wine is also uncomplicated and with options of different carafe sizes of house wine every dish sang! From seafood to a hearty meat gnocchi! It was very tasty!

I loved everything about Konoba Menego. The location is uphill, going towards the fortress. It's a bit of a hike so be ready to arrive tired and thirsty. I had no reservation but the waiter was so nice to give me a pillow to sit on and offer me free wine to refresh during the wait. Great service. Once inside,... More

Without doubt this was the best place we ate on Hvar -so good we ate there twice. The menu is geared to serving local, well cooked high quality produce (fish, meat and vegetables). Many of the choices will not be found elsewhere and draw on old recipes for their inspiration. All the food comes when it is ready which means... More

First of all: Book ahead, Menego is a small restaurant with limited tables, so walk by there the day or afternoon before you want to have dinner to reserve. The staff is very friendly and helps you trough their whole menu. The menu isn't that big, so choice is limited. However, all choices seem to be good! We especially liked... More
