We stumbled upon this lovely little restaurant down an alley way just off the main harbour. Admittedly it doesn't look like such from the outside but the service is very good and the food is even better. We ordered tripe, black risotto and octopus salad. All very reasonably priced and all absolutely delicious. The waitress was lovely and the atmosphere... More

After so many wonderful meals in the region I only wanted a simple good grilled fish. Not only did we find exactly this, but with a lovely fresh salad and a good cold beer. Plus, the atmosphere was intimate and friendly. The price was good value and the service excellent.

A hidden gem on Hvar, the For Bistro was one of those rare discoveries in a sea of tourist traps on an island living off tourism. We were drawn in by the nicely designed sign, the location in the centre of town and discovered a lovely team with excellent food at reasonable prices. We returned evening after evening, becoming regulars... More

Outside seating is in a narrow covered area between two buildings. They serve a special dish for lunch instead of the al la carte which is also available. Centrally located just behind the post office on the waterfront.

Both the food and service in this restaurant was excellent. We both had the beefsteak which is one of the best I've ever had and extremely good value. The waitress was lovely and attentive and the next day after walking round looking for a restaurant we decided to go back - it is one of the tastiest restaurants and very... More

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
