While wandering around the beautiful streets of old town of Hvar that during all these centuries so many people walked through we came up to a restaurant Macondo in one of the streets, not so far from the main square. A welcoming staff invited us to sit and have a meal. So we sat and decided to have a seafood... More

It felt like an authentic experience, as much as that's possible anyway in central Hvar. The head waiter was amusingly grumpy in a somewhat charming way. Situated in the back streets and very busy / buzzing for a mid week off season evening. Felt lucky to get a table and it seemed better than the average tourist fare on offer... More

Amazing seafood. The grilled squid and scampi with spaghetti were outstanding. Simple salad, excellent fresh bread, wonderful house wine by the carafe and quirky service made for an excellent supper - we at here twice and both occasions were great quality and value. Thoroughly recommend!

(Didn't have the risotto, but notice few people were disappointed with it, the grilled fish is awesome though). I ordered a dory for 3xpeople and a side portion of the fried fish to make up the...

We wanted to go to Giaxa, but that was already over booked, so the waitress suggested Macondo. It's a family restaurant and everybody is very proud of working there. We orderd there famous fish stew and it was truly very good! Ritch flavour, whole fishes together, very traditional. Only downside: they don't accept credit cards, so one of us had... More

We ate here twice during six nights in Hvar. It was recommended to us by the owner of the place we were staying. The first time we had steak with peppercorn sauce, and came back the next time to try their steak stuffed with cheese, ham and olives. Both were delicious, and the latter especially worth trying. Everywhere in Croatia... More

Our tour guide recommended Macondo as one of the best places for fresh fish and she was not wrong. Situated down a small alley off the lane up to the fort, we had lunch sitting outside watching the world go by and the rain come down! The owner came across as a bit grumpy at first, but that was just... More

On a recent tour of Croatia our tour group chose this restaurant for one of our nights in Hvar. We loved the location and beautiful decor. The fresh pasta was delicious as was the vegetable risotto. Most of the risotto we had in Croatia was more like regular rice and not that creamy. Macondo's risotto was delicious and creamy. We... More
