“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Get yourself away from the usual grill meat, fries, pizza etc and go here. Their jug wine both red and white is fine and very cheap. We had the mixed meat and cheese thing which was ace. Thoroughly recomend it if we were in Hvar for any more time we would have gone again even though we like to try as many different places as possible.

“Charming Konoba and Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We had dinner here twice on our vacation, and we enjoyed the food on both visits. I loved the homemade gnocchi with shrimp in a white wine sauce. The house wine is locally made by family friends, and it is good and reasonably priced. We loved the atmosphere of this little, local place, and it is easy to find as long as you take the stairs up in the direction of the Hvar Fortress.

The only tiny, little "frustration" that I had was that every table around us was served the local schnapps (pre or post dinner shot), and we were left out. After living in a Balkan country for a year, I know that it is customary to serve this to your guests (especially in a little Konoba). The other guests may have very well ordered the schnapps, but we were not even offered the option to order. This is sort of a silly point to make, but it sort of did put a damper on my experience. Of course this had no effect on the quality of the food or the atmosphere! All in all, this place is lovely - but if you want schnapps, you will have to ask for a shot. :)

“True Dalmatia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

As the owner says, "No pizza, no coca-cola." Come here with an empty stomach and an appetite for true Dalmatian cooking and you won't be disappointed. It was our first night in Croatia and we asked the owner what we should order. He was spot on. We dined on marinated blue fish, cheese with olive oil, and a tuna filet that was the best we've ever eaten, served with white wine. And the best dessert ever - scoops of whipped goat cheese covered in local honey. This was like fantastic ice cream, but better. Hvala, Dinka!

“Friendly atmosphere and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We were eight people having this wonderful meal. From the main square just across the tourist information centre you enter the narrow street/steps (same way as you go to the castle). 100 meter up on the right you find this lovely place. I reserved table in advance which is recommended, it was full around 9 pm. We accepted the owners suggestion to put together a dinner for us and it was just delicious. Highy recommended. There is no outside tables.

“Excellent meal, top-notch service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

The food here at Menego was amazing and our meal was almost flawless. This restaurant is not particularly easy to find, but we happen to be staying on the same block.

The gnocchi was possibly the best that my husband and I have ever had. The seafood gnocchi was particular amazing, especially the sauce. The wine was divine!

The only (minor) flaw in our meal was the tomato-anchovy bread. It did not seem fresh, or maybe seemed as though it has gone through the microwave for warming, because it was moist on the bottom and tough on the top of the bread, which often happens when you microwave bread for a few seconds but don't eat it right away. It was not really a problem, but I wasn't crazy about the texture of the bread.

Our main dishes were exceptional, though, and I'd absolutely recommend this restaurant if you're in Hvar Town.
