A really fantastic restaurant in a fantastic location

This restaurant was just brilliant, not cheap but not overly expensive. The fish was of course excellent and more besides, but the stand out dish was a homemade pasta from north of the country bordering on Italy that was served with black truffle sauce.......words fail me because I thought my best... read more

Good location, very good chef, very good waiter Nicholas. Sit on the terrace of the restaurant Kod Kapetana truly a great pleasure. A large selection of very good fish, shellfish, crustaceans.

We moored our sailboat in Hvar harbour and were enticed by the fish on display outside the restaurant. That's where the treat finished for us. This was one of the two worst meals I have ever had on any Mediterranean shore and I have lived around the Med for almost 10 years. The food was disgusting, the service was arrogant... More

While walking from the Podstine Hotel to the town centre we got caught in a downpour and so on arriving at the town we jumped into one of the first restaurants we came to; the Kod Kapetana. We would normally avoid a restaurant called the Cod Captain but the name doesn't reflect the food or service which was of a... More

We have been to this restaurant every year for the past six years. Always a good meal in the past. Our first meal this year was very disappointing. Cold seafood spaghetti and mussels not open. They just took mussels back and returned with half open ones. My husband decided not to eat the meal. It was not removed from the... More

One of the confusing things about dining out in Croatia is the menu listing of fish by weight on the menu. 450 kn for one kilo is for two people, or so I was told by our waitress. There was another list of fish at 360 kn but this was not available, we were told. So our waitress showed us... More

All my friends plates were good but I got the Croatian pasta with black truffles. I've never taste it before and completely love it. Dessert is missable.

Just ate here with my husband and friend. We ordered charcoal scampi, grilled squid, deep fried calamari and a salad from a very impatient waitress. They brought out complimentary stale bread and old tuna dip which we all had no more than a mouthful. The squid was like chewing on a tasteless Dunlop tyre. The deep fried calamari was just... More

We stopped in here when we got caught in a massive rain storm. We each had the lunch specials, one was stuffed peppers which were really good, and the other was a braised beef with gnocchi that a lot of restaurants have called pasticada. The portions were good. Prices are a bit high, but a premium is being paid for... More
