Good price, good food

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.

Although positioned off the main drag(which we always like) we found For really easily.This wonderful little bistro oozes charm and authenticity. Lovely friendly Staff and tasty food, this place is a winner. The couple sitting opposite us had a fish platter and were overwhelmed... More

We walked past the lunchtime special menu which drew us inside (actually sat outside in the tiny alley!).very attentive waitress,did not wait long for our food or drinks. Octopus salad and cuttlefish risotto were birth very tasty. It is extremely reasonably priced and the food was of better quality than some of the more pricey restaurants on the island. Eat... More

As my wife and I strolled the streets of Hvar, we stumbled across this little restaurant. There is a nice, intimate outside area to sit in the old town of Hvar. We looked at the menu was very good and the prices were extremely reasonable, especially when compared to many other restaurants in the area. Service was fantastic. When the... More
