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...

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
