great stop for a drink

We just had drinks here, as we had dinner reservations elsewhere. The suggested cocktail for the night was an aperetivo, very light and refreshing. The seats are mainly benches outside, but they have cushions, so fairly comfortable. Service was quick and friendly. I wish we had had time to order... read more

I went to there for my last dinner at Havr! Ordered the soup and ink risotto! Soup.....no good, risotto was a bit salty but the portion was big! The best was the wine, just 2 Euro only!

We stayed in Hvar for 4 days and came here for 3 of them! The lunch was just delicious. Extremely reasonably priced and just delicious. The family who runs the place is great. They were all very friendly and helpful. Each meal we had was unreal. This is a must visit for authentic Croatian food.

The seats are mainly benches outside, but they have cushions, so fairly comfortable. Service was quick and friendly. I wish we had had time to order some snacks, as they looked delicious.

We went there because the Fig restaurant have closed kitchen at 13h50.

The meat of pasticade was too hard, but maybe it is that normal. Grilled chicken and patatoes was just... More

"For" is one of hose bistro restaurants that is very conveniently located close to the centre of Hvar, we walked past it several times and every time we did we were eager to visit the next day. Atmosphere wise its second to none and although it's a narrow sized area for seating, it somewhat has charm. The food is fairly... More

Pleasant place with very friendly staff and reasonable prices (quite uncommon in Hvar, IMHO) . Been there twice, both times fish menu - excellent! Their grilled calamari were one of the best I've ever tasted!
