Cheap eat on Hvar. Good mussels buzzara.

We saw paper flyer in the old city with a cheap prices according to Hvar gastro scene and decided to go here. Tomato soup had a lot of water and was not really tasty. But mussels buzzara was good and the price is ok 60kuna. Black rizotto with a cuttlefish had not so many cuttlefish ink but a lot... read more

We came here for a late lunch and we're surprised with what we stumbled across. The food was excellent and generous sizes considering how reasonably priced it was. We were so impressed we immediately made a booking that night for dinner as well, ordering the seafood platter. It was some of the best seafood we've had, especially the squid and... More

We went here for a late lunch. Firstly for Hvar the prices are very reasonable. The waitress was extremely friendly and we had great service throughout the meal. We ordered a litre of the house wine (well worth doing whilst in Croatia) along with steak and the special on the day "pasticada". My steak was cooked to perfection as I... More

we stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant we were unsure as the restaurant was quiet . We were not disappointed we had a fantastic chateaubriand and drinks for only £27 the service was excellent and we would definitely recommend 😄👍

Great food, great service and good value for money. A touch of authenticity which can often be found lacking in the restaurants of Hvar. Worth a visit.

Average dining experience, tasty food, good service, reasonable prices. This is not easy to find in Hvar. It is located in one of the back streets, there is no view, but is quiet and clean.

We were recommended to visit the FOR bistro by a friend who actually lives in Hvar. For the quiet and quaint walkway tables and the heavenly homely taste of the bistro, this was an excellent place for food at very reasonable price. We order "Salma" with mashed potatoes and grilled chicken with risotto, and both were very good. The bistro... More

As other reviewers have mentioned this place is not posh nor does it offer fantastic views. However, what it does offer is laid back service and honest food at a reasonable price. We paid 250 kn for a steak, fried potatoes (chips), carbonara and fried mixed fish (sardines, squid, prawns,and small piece of white fish), plus a large bottle of... More

The restaurant is extremely sympathetic and calm. The location is in the heart of the old town. It is not right on the sea nor is it well lit or fancy in decor. If you are looking for those, look away. This restaurant has simply a lot to offer. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. They bring you blankets... More
