“Nice restaurant, plenty of choice and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

The menu here was very extensive with traditional meat and fish dishes but also lots of pasta and salads.

The location is good on a cobbled side street with tables lined up outside the restaurant. Our table was on a slant down the hill which was strange at first but we got used to it!

The service is nowhere near as good as other places. Our cutlery was just dumped on the table for us to set our own places and the wine was not poured and we were not offered to try it. Only small things but they make a difference to it feeling a bit more special.

However when the food came it was tasty and fresh and good quality. It was also one of our cheaper meals.

Would recommend but it's not as luxury as some of the others!

“Wonderful restaurant in Hvar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Found this restaurant while walking in the narrow streets of Hvar.
Looked very nice and we reserved the table.
We specially liked the service which was one of the best and something we didn't see in Dubrovnik .
Very very friendly and courteous staff.

We liked Hvar gregada so so much which was a Huge portion of fish and potatoes cooked in wine and olive oil. Yummy!!!

Overall, very satisfied with the food, service, ambience and location of this restaurant.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We came across here by accident... And didn't expect the treat to follow. Atmosphere is fab, waiters don't come friendlier and to top it the food was gorgeous and great value for money. The wine deserves a separate sentence because the house red is the reason we couldn't resist for a return visit out if a three night trip. Highly recommend if you like cosy, relaxed and great food.

“Very busy restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

All the outdoor tables were full at 9pm, but somehow we were squeezed in.
The chicken salad was basic - small chicken fillet and some fried potatoes, a tiny bit of rocket which didnt really fulfil the description of 'salad'. We also had meat skewers, tasty, but again basic.
A couple next to us had fish stew that looked far more interesting than our meals.
As its so busy I guess the sheer volume of diners can't be wrong, maybe we just made poor menu selections.
However, wouldn't eat here again.
