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

Same as always, 5/5 stars for everything we've tasted. Not cheap, but definitely worth the price; an abundant dinner for two approximately 100 euros. Fish could not have been better, dessert pleasantly surprised me. Excellent wine suggestion by the waiter. All in all, the best meal you can get in Hvar!

What a pleasant surprise to eat at this restaurant. Walked around after checking into hotel Amfora and asked street vendors what's a good local restaurant. This is up in a cozy alley and the service was excellent. We had the lobster spaghetti and wow what an amazingly tasty dish. Lobster is a bit small but the spaghetti was awesome. Second... More

The food here is absolutely average. It was recommended to us by our Foddor's travel book, but it wasn't that good. We ordered lobster spaghetti and there was barely any lobster---and the spaghetti itself was just ok. It's not cheap either. On a positive note, it is in a great setting, the servers are very nice, and it is very... More

Walking round hvar on a cold night, this was the only place that was full... We were immediately seated on the only available table, in front of the open fire. I'm 8 months pregnant and was getting really hot, the waiter obviously noticed this and offered us another table within minutes. We shared the fish pate to start, which was... More

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
