Restaurant is located up the stairs in a hidden spot that gives an authentic Croatian vibe. They don't take reservations and have limited tables to arrive early to snag a spot. Delicious and authentic cuisine. If you're looking for a great restaurant that is away...from the tourists in Hvar, head to Konoba Menego.More

We were a fairly large family group of 8. With a wide age range and very differing palates. We were greeted and taken to our table where we started to examine the menu but then our host came to tell us about the ethos of...the restaurant. It is about celebrating authentic Croatian cuisine. We allowed ourselves to be guided by him, what a great decision! We enjoyed every dish, which was served with homemade red our white wine. We were absolutely replete and declined a sweet but a selection of homemade delicacies was brought out for us and we managed to squeeze these in! We were also served a homemade fig liqueur, not for me, but the whole experience was fantastic. What an evening.More

We stumbled across this little restaurant one night when exploring Hvar and were drawn in by the 'traditional Croatian food, no pasta, no pizza, no Coca Cola' sign so decided to give it a go and we're so glad we did!!! The restaurant is run...by a local family (now the 3rd/4th generation) and serves local, authentic Dalmatian food that is grown on site or locally to Hvar. The restaurant is situated upon the family home, giving you a homelike feel - very warm and welcoming. The service was flawless, we were served by Mario (the son of the lady who cooks and creates all the meals/menus) who was incredibly passionate and informative about the restaurant, it's heritage and family history. When we turned up every table was full (a great sign) but we were seated straight away, then offered a better table once it became available. In terms of food, we opted for the barley with shrimp & veggies and stuffed pepper with veggies which was absolutely delicious and very well priced. We finished with the marinated figs and a complimentary dessert wine - very much appreciated. One thing to note, it's cash only but doesn't tend to be a problem when you're travelling abroad. Cannot recommend this place enough, a must when in Hvar!More

My boyfriend and I had a very pleasant dinner at Konoba Menego. The restaurant serves authentic Dalmatian food with local ingredients in a rustic atmosphere. The service was excellent and very courteous. I can absolutely recommend this spot for dinner!

First of all, beware that this restaurant is cash only and has only 8 tables inside (no outdoor dining). If you arrive after 7.30pm you’ll need to wait maybe an hour for a table. The guy manning the door is helpful with cushions and ordering...wine while you wait. We eventually got a table an hour later and were very excited eating here after reading the reviews. As a vegetarian I had some hopes the vegetarian food might be good as they had 4/5 options. I asked the waiter for a suggestion and he suggested the barley and vegetables as the best option and my partner got the shrimp gnocchi. We also got the vegetable plate. The food arrived 10 mins after ordering, apparent that it was sat ready and not made to order. My partners gnocchi was ok but my barley was completely bland. A second waiter who came to tidy the tables asked how our meals were and when I said it was bland he said “well it’s barley so how tasty can it be”. LOL WTF why is it even on the menu then?! He proceeded to tell me he liked it with bacon which made no sense at all to me being vegetarian and besides the point. No apology given, no discount on the bill and basically no fks given that me as a customer was dissatisfied. Worst meal I’ve had in Croatia so far in a week and terrible customer service (this seems to be a trend though).More

Friendly, earnest staff serving authentic Croatian meals. Not the standard tourist food. We've been in Croatia for 7 days (with excellent meals), and this was our first truly unique experience. And it was delicious!! It's a limited menu, but worth exploring dishes you haven't thought...of!More

This family owned and operated restaurant is a one of a kind experience. Every dish, every detail is expertly crafted in a homey and familiar style. If you are a fan of the healthy and secret recipes of genius grandmothers around the world, this is...the place for you. The restaurant itself is in the house where the very family lives. The mom and dad will cook and prepare everything, the sons will wait you at the table. Best food I had in CroatiaMore

This little family run place feels like you are getting home cooked meals from home grown products using family recipes from grandma. We had the traditional tuna steak with gnocchi even though we didn’t think we liked tuna (wow! Sold!) and the stuffed green pepper...with fig and over beetroot compote. Unbelievable! Homemade olive oil. Red house wine from grandfather (best house wine we’ve had in Croatia... strong, bold). And finished with young goat cheese with honey. Absolutely delicious. Great chatting with owners and chef. Just know they only take cash.More

Huge disappointment. Friendly staff, but small portions and pricey. Because of a Tripadvisor sticker at the entrance we expected much more. Pitty

Friendly staff and beautiful restaurant. Food was lovely. We had the antipasti to start with and I ordered the chefs special which was chicken in white wine and polenta. I have to say this dish was delicious. Very tasty. As for the orange cake, fantastic!!!...I need the recipe :). I keep saying to my partner this was my favourite meal of the whole holiday.
