Ohhhh, I wish I could've eaten more!

Possibly the best service we've had in Croatia (and that's saying A LOT!) Beautiful space and lovely atmosphere made it a wonderful date night. :) Great appetizers (the monkfish carpaccio and the prosciutto ravioli with black truffle sauce: to die for!), fantastic mains. Sadly, didn't even get to... read more

We visited this restaurant last night and had an amazing meal, fish cooked perfectly. Can't fault the service at all, very attentive waiter couldn't have done any more for us. Definitely would recommend.

Restaurant has a great setting in the old town and food was excellent quality in particular the fish. Only let-down was the waiter became completely disinterested after we had completed our main course, to the extent that we ended up skipping dessert and leaving. Disappointing end to what could have been an exceptional meal.

Bluntly told in the face there is no room for two with half empty restaurant. True reason was our sporty attire. Would have probably come back but with that attitude surely not.

I stumbled upon this place while walking the alleys of Hvar and was very happy with my experience. I would definitely recommend it to visitors and would eat there again if I went back.

Very tasty meal, shames the waiter was so rude! Ordered chicken dish and a bottle of white wine. The waiter came back with the wine to say they had sold out of the chicken so we changed our main to steak. When asked if we could change the wine to red he said no as he had opened the bottle....

Our tour guide suggested that we eat there. There were a bunch of us. My food was just ok - and others complained as well. There were a few good dishes that people selected but ....... It's very pricey and the service WAS AGONIZINGLY slow.

The setting is unbelievable, the food was exquisite, I had oysters and lamb, and much to my shame I even picked up the bones and nibbled(I was in a dark corner!). The waiter could not have been more attentive and had a great sense of humour and made the night. Utterly fantastic. Well done

Located down one of Hvar Town's back alleys in the restaurant area off the main town square, Giaxa had a beautiful setting with stone architecture and arches that created different intimate dining areas. One of the best restaurants we experienced in Hvar Town for food, service and ambiance; definitely worthy of a special occasion or that last dinner before leaving... More

Having just arrived on the island and wandering mid afternoon we stopped here, sat under the arch in the shade and had a reasonably priced good quality set special lunch - really enjoyed it and the chocolate fondant dessert was incredible! We would have come back for dinner but wanted to try different places on our three night stay- nice... More
