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

Nice food but over priced, below average service and poor location. You can get better seafood in many parts of Asia for less than half the price. The tomato soup is great. Their signature fish dish fresh but overpriced, so is the seashell dish.

Seafood at Macondo is the best in Hvar: fresh, beautifully cooked, simply presented and served by friendly experienced staff interested that you enjoy your time in Croatia. We went several times: their mixed fried fish is fantastic. We paired this with grilled vegetables. Their signature dish, crayfish with spaghetti was just fantastic, visually stunning in its simplicity, and perfectly cooked.... More

We stumbled across this place whilst wandering the backstreets of Hvar Town and it's a great spot for dinner. We had mussels and the local fish stew which were both delicious and very generous portions. The prawn cocktail starter was a little bland with too much mayonnaise dressing for my liking, but apart from that top marks. Service was friendly... More

This is a lovely atmosphere in the lovely Hvar Town, up on the hill in town. The service was very polite. We shared the mussels and calamari but wish we had ordered the lobster with spaghetti, which is their specialty. The mussels were a bit early in the season, which is not the restaurant's fault, and the calamari was fine.... More

We shared the fish stew (brujet) here, which is allegedly 'the' dish of the Croation coast. They do it really well here, and it was absolutely delicious, although a bit expensive. But it was worth it, not had better. We made sure we had the polenta on the side, which we prefer, not sure if it would have come mixed... More

We tried to visit Macondo on our second night in Hvar as I had been telling my partner about the reviews I had read. It was very busy and rather than wait the waiter suggested that we make a reservation for the following evening which we did. When we returned the next night we were given the option of sitting...
