Very reasonably priced

As other reviewers have mentioned this place is not posh nor does it offer fantastic views. However, what it does offer is laid back service and honest food at a reasonable price. We paid 250 kn for a steak, fried potatoes (chips), carbonara and fried mixed fish (sardines, squid, prawns,and small... read more

We were recommended to visit the FOR bistro by a friend who actually lives in Hvar. For the quiet and quaint walkway tables and the heavenly homely taste of the bistro, this was an excellent place for food at very reasonable price. We order "Salma" with mashed potatoes and grilled chicken with risotto, and both were very good. The bistro... More

The restaurant is extremely sympathetic and calm. The location is in the heart of the old town. It is not right on the sea nor is it well lit or fancy in decor. If you are looking for those, look away. This restaurant has simply a lot to offer. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. They bring you blankets... More

A nice restaurant on the narrow street. Ask for a table on the street. It's very nice and mediteranian athmosphere. The pasta is home made and very very good. For a little expensive island as Hvar , this place offers you a varied menu at a good price! Enjoy

This place was perfect. Great food with local specialties. We had the mussels two days in a row! Also great customer service. They have normal prices for a very expensive town. Note the tripadvisor map location is incorrect and the restaurant hasn't been able to get it changed. It's closer to where the ferry docks in a side alley.

Lovely meal, great service and reasonable prices. We ate here twice during our holiday and enjoyed both. Go for the meat platter if you're hungry!

Good food and good price option just back from waterfront. Very helpful and cheerful waitress. A limited menu but particularly enjoyed the steak.

Confess I did not eat here, but having read the reviews wish we had done so. We were living in a villa very close by and on cooking a meal one night, found there was no can opener. I popped out, spoke to the lovely waitress, frequently mentioned in these reviews - and obligingly chef opened the can for me... More

Hidden jewel in small halfblind street on the stairs. The food is really great and the prices are lower than neighbours. This is the place to go for lunch.
