Good Service, mediocre food

The service here was extraordinary! The food was surprisingly mediocre and a bit overpriced even for the good view one has from the patio.

I can't understand why this restaurant hasn't got a better Trip Advisor rating - it was excellent. The fish is super fresh and, whilst it isn't cheap, my husband said that the two dishes he selected (on separate occasions) were amongst the best fish dishes he had ever tasted - Snapper steak and a John Dory. As a veggie, there... More

We came here predominantly because it was close to our Air B&B place. We had the black ink risotto with cuttlefish (sepia) - we had been meaning to have this dish throughout our stay on the Dalmatian Coast. It was worth waiting for - good portion size and great flavour. The bill was a tad expensive (hence 4 stars), but... More

We loved this little restaurant and came several times for lunch although it is very busy during the evening also. Good range of menu options and everything is nicely cooked and good value. Great harbour view and lovely service. Great with the kids.

I cannot describe how goooood the food is! We were 4 & we ordered 8 different meals. Each one better than the other. Salads, seafood (all of them) and even meat are just incredibly delicious.. even french fries were exceptional. Service & location are also excellent. Best restaurant we tried in both hvar & dubrovnik

To all those haters of "Kod kapetana" on trip advisor I say this: order the black risotto with cuttlefish and a portion of mussels and then right down your opinion!

This year our stay in Hvar has taken us to Kod Kapetana. A restaurant we have already visited years before, but since then a lot has changed, beside the perfect and stunning view on the harbour of Hvar. The interior of the restaurant has changed and is now modern and stylish without loosing its tradition completely. The Service was perfect... More

My husband and I ate dinner here after a recommendation from our airbnb host. We did not have a reservation but they set us up at a table on a sidewalk nearby. Our waiter was lovely. He chose the perfect wine for me after I described what I wanted. They brought out complimentary tuna pate and then we shared the... More

The location is lovely. The service was friendly. Those are the two plus points from our visit. On the negative side: the food was very expensive for what it was: barely average and cooked in a style that you could sample for less in a hundred other restaurants on the island. We had a ridiculously long wait between starter (good... More
