Good restaurant facing the harbor with a scenic night view of the town of Hvar. For a change, we did not have seafood: the lamb, chicken and wine were excellent. Relatively expensive, but so is everything in Hvar.

We found this restaurant almost immediatly when walking by the port. We were lured inside by a very friendly and helpful waiter and we were not sorry. The food was delicious, beautifully served and very pleasant to sit by the water. Hvar is charming and this was as truly charming restaurant!

Well the food in Croatia was mostly mediocre but we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the view from Kod Kapetana, which definitely made the whole experience special! The food was still fairly good but it was also the service that we enjoyed, the waiters were some of the happiest and friendliest we met in Croatia and we really appreciated their... More

One of the worst restaurants I have visited!! Poor quality food but more alarmingly extremely poor customer service skills! The food lacked any flavour, presentation or quality (especially the risotto!!) The carbonara was cheesy spaghetti with two dices of ham, literally. The well done lamb was burnt to a cinder! We ordered 3 seperate portions of chips/fries, they came in... More

If you're looking for some nice food and decent servce then I strongly suggest you look elsewhere. We went as a group of six. To start with, we all found the waiters overly friendly, bordering on fake. However, when it came to taking our orders, he was not paying attention, interrupting us and going to serve other customers mid order.... More

This Restaurant is in a prime location in the harbour, it is undoubtedly what you are paying for. The seafood risotto tasted very bland, the rice was undercooked and lacked in any flavour. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and the options were very limited. Our wine selection was not pre-chilled so we had to wait to enjoy the wine with... More

Located on the "quiet" side of the Hvar harbor, this is still a typical waterfront restaurant relying upon its location to draw people as the food would never draw anyone; doubtful they get any repeat business.

Pretty good food considering that sea food is not my favorite. The combo plate looks at you and dare you to eat it. I saw one local take a dish of mixed seafood down with flair and gusto. Service was very good and the location was fine.

OK the view is great if you have table right upfront. Other than that it is all a poor experience. The vegetable risotto - lousy. Pasta - green noodles with shrimp - nothing much. Tuna pâté - like cat meat. Monk fish - looked good, taste so so and very expensive. Service slow - the waiter forgot about us after... More

We went here on our first night, having arrived in the dark and read in the Hvar newsletter from our hotel that restaurants with fish on ice out front were a decent pick for sea food. This was one of the first places we came across and not particularly knowing our way around, we ventured in. We spent about 1200... More
