Waiter was really lovely but food was average. Shared a mixed meat platter- some of which was good however some tasted very cheap. Much nicer places to eat in Hvar.

We were looking for some of the renowned great seafood Hvar has to offer and had read the great reviews for this place. On our way, we passed several other places and looked at the menus. The prices for seafood were extremely high considering how close we were to the sea. Luckily, in FOR Bistro, we had a fantastic seafood... More

Hvar can be a gilded place having hosted tourists for so long but Bistro FOR was an alleyway gem. Our waitress was genuinely friendly and patient. I ordered the black risotto and topped it off with Turkish coffee before a night out on the town. Recommended for the budget conscious - remember, you're in Hvar.

This bistro is located right off Hvar's riva. Most of their tables are hidden in a small side alley, but we were lucky to get the only table that overlooks the riva and the sea. The menu does appear somewhat limited. I think pasta dishes and risottos are the best value-we ordered one seafood risotto and one seafood pasta (they... More

Good food at very good price and excellent service. I had lamb and my wife had a fish dish which were both tasty.

Family run restaurant, ate a number of times here. They do a very affordable 3 course lunch time menu of their local food for 60 kn which we really enjoyed. Recommended by our Apartment host. This is a definite must try and we will be back to enjoy their lunches again. It is located just behind the waterfront not far... More

Place has been recommended to us and did not disappoint. Service was unpretentious, very relaxed and friendly. Food was excellent and very reasonable. Strongly recommend the Chateabriand for 2 - wonderful! This was the only place that we went to twice during our stay - speaks for itself - totally recommended!

For all its attractiveness, Hvar is not easy to get to, because the place is on an island and one needs a boat to get there. This imparts somehow the cachet of exclusivity on this town. So the restaurants are all on the expensive side, as we found out as we scoped around. The average entree is usually over Kuna... More

The service was very good, and it all started well. We got a table outdoor and were placed in a bush extreamly close to the kitchen and heat pump. It was also quite claustrophobic, but i guess it was more comfortable inside. It was the regular menu that you can find many places on Hvar.. and the prices was ok.... More
