Great lobster pasta

Similar to another reviewer we found this restaurant whilst walking through the alleys in Hvar. A large party was having lobster spaghetti in the alley way and we knew we had to go back the next night.

Gregada with raw potato in it and as an apology artificial (made from powder) desert. And it costed 45€. Per person. To avoid in big circle!

This is most likely one of the best seafood restaurants in the city of Hvar. We always visit the place whenever on Hvar. Can be recommended.

We found this restaurant whilst walking through the alleys in Hvar. It was lunchtime and we'd only just eaten but the wonderful aromas we could smell drew us in. We decided there and then that we'd have to return one evening for dinner and so we did. It was definitely worthwhile. The squid starter was just about the best we'd... More

This restaurant has amazing food! It is a little bit in the pricey side for Croatian standars, but it is worth it! The seafood is great!

If you want seafood at great value then this the place to go. Really good food as well as service. Would thoroughly recommend but would highlight it is a cash only restaurant. We had lunch one day and dinner some 3days later, both were excellent.

A local referred us to this place so we were really excited to try it . . . and it did not disappoint! We took the waiters recommendations and ordered the local seafood pate with grilled octopus and gregada for two (local dish of fish stew). It was incredible! We live on an island and eat fresh fish all the... More

We went there because a lot of guide mentionned it as a great restaurant. Well avoid it. It s simply overpriced and most of all not that good. There are dozens of better options.

Macondo is a short climb of stairs up from the main square in Hvar City. Very easy to find and the stairs will help you work up an appetite ... which you definitely want in this love restaurant. We had spaghetti lobster and grilled squid for lunch and it was simply delicious ... no other way to describe it. One... More
