Been on holidays on Hvar island for more than 15 years, mostly in small fishing town of Vrboska, but cruising the island. Now, if you happen to be in the town of Hvar, you have to visit the "FOR". Located 100m of the main town square, but hidden in a small narrow street with tables set on stony stairs. Do... More

Stopped in on a rainy evening with our young son and had a wonderful meal. Great value, great food. Really enjoyed the entire evening. One of the best we have visited during a week on the island.

Hidden behind a couple of walls near the harbor, they offered a fixed course lunch along with nice salads. Washed down with our Croatian beer, it was a fun change from the touristy places.

Sometimes, when going for holidays on Croatian coast I seriously wonder what the restaurants owners think. The food is usually seriously overdressed, overcomplicated and overpriced which is the reason why Croatians on Croatian coast cook in their rented appartments instead of going to restaurants. On account of its remarkable beauty, the island of Hvar has evolved into the place where... More

We had been to For bistro on two previous occasions and the food had been excellent so on our return to Hvar had been really looking forward to going there again. Unfortunately this time the gregada fish meal was tasteless, where previously it had been wonderful. I was charged the equivalent of 23 euros for this meal for one, shocked... More

We went to For Bistro two times after a local friend recommended about this place. It is located behind the Post office near the dock and because it is hidden it is not crowded. The food was great, they serve traditional food, we took Musaka and Mangold with Potatoes and they both where good. We also took Mussels which where... More

FOR was better than good. We have never been away and eaten at the same restaurant every night but we did here. The service is excellent. Front of house and serving most of the guests is a charming and bright young woman called Ivana. She and the small team seem to genuinely care that you have a good experience at... More

Tucked away just off the Riva, this place serves up good food at good prices. The food isn't Gordon Ramsey level but the staff are welcoming and there is a small outside area to sit. We ate here twice for lunch as we didn't want to keep spending a fortune! Also I'm a veggie and this had a few different... More

We went to a few restaurants in hvar and got the usual choice of over priced fish and the pizza/pasta options. For is such a really really good restaurant that does excellent food at really reasonable prices. Try to fried prawns as shared starter. Even though you cant see all the big shiny boats its still a very romantic setting.

Me and my bf ate in this restaurant due to reading the excellent reviews on TA and I was not disappointed. This restaurant is very central, yet due to its location down a little alley set back slightly away from the main square, it felt calm and relaxing and less rushed than other restaurants in Hvar. The food and beer... More
