We have been to this restaurant three times now and the quality of the food and the service has never disappointed us. First time we went to Hvar we had dinner here and said to ourselves we had to go back. Now two years later we changed our travelling plans just to get to Hvar and the food and service... More

First, the food was excellent and the waiter was very competent. However, we watched the hostess treat a guest SO rudely when she wasn't dressed in a way the hostess wanted, that we wished we had left. The waiter treated us like peasants when we were seated out in alley due to no reservations. I would never recommend this place,... More

Sat in a garden and part of the street behind the main square in HVar, this place has a lovely rustic charm. The food was very nice, although the Bread and starters were quite large meaning we were quite full for the main - this is no bad thing I suppose. The mains are simple but full of fresh ingredients... More

First they didn't do anything, but later on they took them back and brought them 1 min later again (microwave?) The mussels were dry and... More

Great food here, try one of their fish stew specialties. The restaurant is easily booked out, luckily I was alone so I got a bar table on the outskirt of the restaurant. Service was great and atmosphere does seen very romantic.

We went to Giaxa on the last night of our holiday and the beautiful setting in the cobbled streets of the old town, made this the perfect spot for the end of our romantic holiday. The food was fantastic, I had the steak and mushroom main with a side dish of rosemary potatoes. The steak was extremely tender and overall... More

Giaxa has, without a doubt, the best wine list on the island, bar none. We had incredible White wine, Jermann, a vintage tunina, a rarity (only place we have seen it) and an absolute must!!! Take it alongside great octopus grilled and the Lobster linguini. The hostess and waiters are just all around nice people, just good vibes. And youre... More
