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.

Recommended to us by a work colleague who is very adept at finding these hidden gems! 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

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

Lovely friendly service, central location, very reasonably priced and tasty simple food. Perfect for a quick lunch for 2 for under 150 kuna. Nothing to fault here.

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
