The fois gras and the tuna steak was incredible, the wine was great, awesome view from the terrace and the staff was friendly and helpfull. A little pricy for Croatia, but worth it :)

“Our wedding was magical!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had the pleasure of holding our wedding at DiVino. It was simply magical!! From the staff to the food and drinks everything was spectacular, we could not imagine a more perfect day for us or our 120 guests who flew in from all over the world. Our guests have all commented that the venue is world class and the food Ben better. We cannot recommend this place enough and will definitely come back every time we are in Hvar. Thank you to all the DiVino staff!!

“Big mistake”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were attracted by the many good tripadvisor reviews. And, we wanted to have something a bit different from the "typical" Croatian cuisine we had been having the days prior. The location is great, with magnificent views. But, as some other reviewers mentioned, what restaurant in Hvar doesn't have awesome views?

We ordered the 4 course menu, which we later regretted. The first two courses where excellent: a marinated sea bass, and a black truffle risotto.

The problem came with our main course, which turned out to be rack of lamb. The lamb was absolutely raw. We are not talking rare, as the one in their website (http://www.divino.com.hr/pics/enhslide8.jpg). It was just plain raw. I could picture chef Ramsey slamming the plate on the floor, seriously. I asked mine to be cooked a bit more. The lamb came back in a minute, well done, maybe even overcooked. But, that was definitely better than the original presentation. It was so oily that I would swear it had been fried, but it could be the fat from the lamb itself.

I am sorry, but undercooked lamb is a rookie mistake I cannot take from a restaurant as expensive as this. It really ruined what could have otherwise been an excellent dinner.

Service was OK, but not great. Our server seemed to go missing every now and then, and we had someone not dressed like a waiter (maybe the owner?) serve most of our plates.

“Brilliant - International standard cooking; unbeatable location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Absolutely loved this place:
- Brilliant setting. The terrace has the best views in Hvar, and as it is just round the corner from the main Riva drag is much quieter as well - you could be on a different island!
- Contrary to some reviews we found the service excellent (attentive, friendly, good suggestions of wine pairings etc); on 2 occasions that we visited and served by different waitors this was consistently very good.
- Food is brilliant - best of our trip and a real step up from other Hvar options we have sampled - would do fine in London / NYC
- Damage. Our bills for the 4 course tasting menu, good wine and coffee were about £120 for the 2 of us...which I thought was a bargain

“Beautiful dinner and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We had a lovely dinner here. Highlights were the lobster pasta (delicious) and the steak (very tender). The view was also stunning and the service friendly and attentive. We had 2 young children with us and the kitchen organised a simple pasta for them no problems.
We would highly recommend and certainly would return.
