“Excellent romantic dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Since this was our first visit to town Hvar,we had no idea which places are good to eat so we asked our hosts and they recommended Gariful. It is placed on the waterfront in Hvar and has a lovely view to the sea and nearby harbour which was at the time of our visit full of yachts and sailboats.

The restaurant is very well known so it was a bit crowdy but we managed to find a table with no problems. The staff was very polite and professional. Seafood risotto and scampi bouzzara (very tasty local stew) were magnificent. A glass of white wine was a perfect ending to dinner. We are comming back next summer in Hvar and to Gariful for sure.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The atmosphere and the service have greatly improved from earlier years, and now that the entrance to the raised decked terrace is cordoned off, there is also some feeling of exclusivity - nothing to complain about the food and the service. If you don't mind the "slightly" higher than average prices wou will be guaranteed an excellent dinner with a great view...
