“Must visit!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2014

This was the best place i ate in Hvar. I went there with a few friends nad the first thing we were amazed by was the killer panoramic view, great panorama of Pakleni islands due to it' location on the top hill. We ate lamb and beef under the bell and it was the second best thing that night. Third best thing was very happy and helpful service that was making us laugh all night.
To summer this review this place must be seen !!!

“Panoramic view and great lamb under the "bell"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Restaurant Panorama is situated atop a hill in Hvar offering a panoramic (hence the name) view of the island with both Split on one side and Pakleni Otoci on the other. The view on a clear day/evening is breathtaking and you don't have to enter the restaurant to take photos as there is a large parking lot and lots of room for diners and non-diners alike around the building. We visited in August and timed our visit with the sunset (7:15 - 7:30) for the best shots. Dining is outdoor and partially covered outdoor with long tables for big parties and smaller tables for couples and romantic dinners. In terms of meals , I agree with the statement that the octopus salad is a pass, However, their specialty of lamb is excellent - but call ahead early or the day before to ensure that it is available as it takes several hours to properly prepare But soooo worth the wait. Delicious - surrounded with roast potatoes and other veggies- so tender and it falls off the bone. Salads are fresh and varied, and staff has a good grasp of English and is able to fulfill special orders. Try to arrive either early or later as dinner time is busy and service is a bit slow when it is busy. The kids enjoyed the pasta, and make sure you enjoy the Prosec (sweet wine)
homemade by the house

“Views to die for, fabulous food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

This place does not get the credit it deserves! Located at the very top of a mountain, We came here for a post wedding party. The view was exceptional! The food was lamb & pig on the spit, served with a variety of salads and baked potatoes - very homey and delicious! As the sun began to set, we dropped our cutlery and scrambled for phones and cameras ro capture one of the most incredible sunsets, I will ever see!!! Please put thos on your list of places to visit, while in Hvar.

“Most Breathtaking View in all of Hvar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We stumbled upon this hidden gem while riding scooters around the island. We got there at 6:30PM which was perfect because they open at 6 and we got the best seat in the house. The view is at one side of the island and you get 180 degrees of water. Absolutely breathtaking. We ordered a grilled meat plat which consisted of lamb, beef, chicken and chevapchichi. It also came with grilled vegetables which was great. Don;t miss this place if you are in Hvar for a few days.

“Nice view but food could be better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stopped at the panorama for dinner and for some sunset photography. The cold starter octopus salad was chewy however the prosciutto was good. Main course grilled lamb was ok but grilled vegetables sidedish consisted of undercooked eggplant an zucchini. Would recommend for the view and for the prosciutto but I would eat a main course somewhere else.
