My boyfriend and I ate here yesterday after being recommended by friends. It’s safe to say that we were both blown away by Black Pepper. The staff were all so friendly and informative, which made added to the dining experience. The location was beautiful on...one of Hvar’s side streets, with lovely wooden tables. Very romantic. The sun was setting and everything had a golden hour glow. The waiter brought out a pre starter, which was pea puree which was super yummy, a tease of what was to come. For starters, my boyfriend and I both had burratta. Burratta is my favourite starter, so I have a couple of burrattas in my time. Black Pepper’s burratta was the best I’ve ever had by far!!! If I could have this starter as my last ever starter, I’d be a happy woman haha. It was so nice, words can’t explain. It had so much flavour. I loved the orange bit. I’m normally a fast eater, but I made sure I ate it slowly to enjoy every last bite. For my main, I have the cauliflower steak, which was out of this world. I didn’t really know what to expect. The cauliflower was so beautifully cooked, also full of flavour. I am a vegetarian, so I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of choice I had. The lemon risotto also sounded nice, but I am glad I had the cauliflower. My boyfriend had the octopus, he had never had tried octopus before, but he said his food was out of this world. The presentation on everything was outstanding. My mouth is watering just looking at the photos. I’d highly recommend going to Black Pepper if you are ever in Hvar.More

Look nowhere else. You’re next best meal in Hvar is at Black Pepper. Cute, quaint atmosphere with seating along a stone staircase paired with great service and a great wine list. I could go on forever about the food. Fresh, local with a world class...taste. Menu isn’t too big, which I like, but the options will have you wanting to order everything on the list. This establishment is very well priced for the quality of food. My recommendation would be to book ahead as you could be left on a waiting list. Just go here and thank me later.More

Fantastic experience overall except for the EXTREMELY cold greeting when confirming our reservation by the blonde woman “welcoming guests” to the restaurant. However once we didn’t have to deal with her anymore the rest of our dining experience was absolutely brilliant, from the complimentary rose...liquor and dessert wines to the expert service of our waiter and of course the delicious food 10/10. Highly recommend… just try to avoid the blonde …More

We were a group of 4. The food was incredibly good and way better than in most restaurants in Croatia. The food is amazing all over Croatia so it’s hard to beat that. But that restaurant topped everything I had before. But The best part...of our visit was the waiter Mioš. Usually ur treated like an ordinary tourist, traveling Croatia for more than 20 years, I am more than used to that. But Miloš gave us an amazing experience with great hospitality. We are amazed by him. Greetings from Germany dear Miloš <3More

"Black Pepper" located in a characterful setting, off a flight of ancient stone steps leading up from the small waterfront garden set with phoenix palms. It is worth pre-booking in the high season, as the venue is small with a number of tables located on...the actual steps, although we were lucky enough to nab a table in the garden. The menu and prices (higher, of course!) differed somewhat from the online version and we started with a shared seafood risotto, which was pleasant. We then both selected mains of "Lambada" (actually lamb shank), but I was eventually persuaded by the waiter to try his suggestion of duck...which was a disaster! A grey, dry, overcooked duck breast smothered with a beetroot-based sauce and garnished with (you guessed it!)...yet more beetroot. Given the notorious ability of beetroot to stain deep red, my clothes only narrowly avoided a "bloodbath", although the same was not true of the serviette! We complained to the waiter and, to be fair, he was very apologetic and deleted the cost from the bill and gave us free desserts by way on an apology, I should add that my wife's lamb was very nice, so if only I'd stuck to my guns! Typically for Hvar, the drink selection was fairly expensive; we selected a bottle of Matijevic Plavac Malio red wine (HRK300/c.£37) and the local sparkling mineral water (HRK45/c.£6). The final bill (ex.tip) for 2 people was HRK813 (c.£100), which was expensive bearing in mind that it excluded 1 main course and 2 desserts.More

Stunning stunning location, the restaurant tables are spread out on steps with a beautiful view overlooking the narrow walkway that leads down to the water. The waiters and hostess were so friendly and accommodating and we spent 4.5 hours on our girly dinner, talking away,...sipping on amaretto sourz, innovative, refreshing fun cocktails, crisp rose and enjoying the ambience. We ordered truffle pasta to start and what a generous portion it was, closely followed by duck with a raspberry and beetroot ensemble, the flavours were fireworks on my palette!! My friend was vegan and was blown away by her cauliflower steak. Service, quality of food, setting and ambience made for one of my favourite meals of all time! If you’re in Hvar it would be a crime not to visit black pepper.More

Wow! What an amazing place. We visited Hvar at the very start of the season and Black Pepper on their opening night. You have a choice of sitting on the stairs outside the restaurant or in the garden - we chose outside. We certainly saved...the best until last - everything about this place was superb. The service - they offered recommendations on both food and wine - all spot on! The food itself - wow! To start We had Tuna Bruschetta and truffle pasta. Main course was sea bass and lamb shank and we shared a chocolate brownie for dessert. Everything was delicious. They also gave us a appetiser of tuna tartar which was very welcomed. We had 2 glasses of wine each and the bill was around £120 We are returning to Hvar next year and this will definitely be on our list to return - thank you for such a wonderful meal.More

Wow where do I start! The service at black pepper is impeccable. The staff are so knowledgable on every dish on the menu as well as the wines to pair it with. The setting is beautiful on a staircase with views of the sea and...the ability to people watch as holidaymakers walk by. The restaurant was so lovely I wanted to stop everyone who walked by and tell them about it so they didn’t miss out!! The food itself was extraordinary, the flavours bursting in your mouth with every bite. The portions are big too so you feel like you’ve really got your money’s worth. They offer a vegan option of the cauliflower steak too which is divine. The beetroot purée that is an addition to the cauliflower is to die for. My friends recommended the truffle pasta which they said they wish they could have boxed up and taken home with them back to England. Definitely try the cocktails too, they were flavourful, strong, and beautiful. I wish I could give back pepper 10/5 stars, no words can describe how much I loved this place. Thankyou so much!More

I came here on Saturday 30th of July with 2 friends. We sat at the table from 7 until almost midnight as we were having SUCH a good time. The food was to die for, the best food we ate all trip, and the outdoor...seating on the steps of one of the side streets was just perfect for people watching. Staff were also amazing and so attentive! I had the truffle pasta to start - HUGE portion & sooo delicious, followed by the lamb shank for main & we shared a bottle of Galic Rose and each had a couple of cocktails. It’s a must try for your trip to Hvar Thank you very much Black Pepper!More
