We enjoyed a nice meal here. We wanted something light and shared the octopus salad and seafood risotto. The food was very good, the service was friendly, helpful and attentive and it all added up to a very enjoyable meal.

Our friend recommended that we try Macondo so we were really excited when it was actually open during our visit during late October. We ordered the grilled shrimp (which was actually langoustine), the grilled monkfish (the waiter recommended this) and the grilled veggie platter. The grilled langoustine was excellent! Super delicious but came at a pretty penny as did the... More

This is a very good restaurant serving beautifully cooked fish and meat dishes. Our landlord recommended it and he was right.

We enjoyed a lovely meal here in a fantastic setting down a cobbled street, however it was not as 'cheap and cheerful' as I had been expecting. The guide books described it as a rustic restaurant, however the gregada fish stew cost 420Kn for two people. It was lovely though!

They charge exorbitant prices to get rid of the worst cuts of fish (the scraps) on unsuspecting tourists like us, under the guise of traditional 'specialty' dishes. We had only been paying around 100-150 kuna for excellent mains in our stay throughout Dalmatia, but despite seeming very pricey, at over 400 kuna for two, thought we would give one of... More

Food is good and prices OK. Staff could be a slightly more friendly explaining why people could not sit outside when there are free tables available. When I asked if we could sit outside, the answer was a single no without any explanation.

Every other year we visit Hvar and Macondo is a must visit for us. Since years they offer excellent food and a very friendly service. The dishes are the Macondo interpretation of typical Dalmatian cousine. Don't expect the same dishes you get everywhere else. My favorite dish is "Big Mana" a beef steak stuffed with Dalmatian ham, cheese and olives.... More
