My husband and I spent the night buoyed in the beautiful bay. Someone from the restaurant came and picked us up at our boat. The elegance of the atmosphere was a nice surprise. There were beautiful flowers, artwork, and tasteful music. Our waiter was very friendly and professional. Our dinners were delicious! My husband had the roasted lamb tenderloin and... More

One of the most famous restaurants in Croatia. Loved their steak it was one of the best iv eaten anywhere. Again, make sure to book in advance as the place gets really busy

There are a handful of restaurants in this little cove. Great swimming beach and this restaurant is the one that stands out for casual elegance, service and great food. We had hired a small boat and captain and this is where they arranged lunch. Great grilled langoustine and fish. Lobster available. Excellent wine list. Very special. Pricy but worth it.

Special location on the remote island of Palmizana, Zori faces a pontoon with yachts and sailing boats. You get there from the item her side where transfer boats drop you off after a 5min walk on a cement path. Staff is super friendly and cares about your experience - a rarity around Hvar! Chill atmosphere, great cooking, chocolate soufflé was... More

One of the most unique places to have an incredible meal. The location of the restaurant is just mind blowing. The service was the best I've had in Croatia. I can't wait to visit again.

We came here for lunch and it was fabulous. The food is fresh and very tasty. It's a bit on the pricey side but worth it as a treat. The staff are incredibly professional and polite. Worth a try.

Not sure how to access this restaurant by land, as on all three occasions we ate at this Restaurant (for Lunch) we came by water taxi. Zori is an odd mix between beach restaurant and fine dining. Fantastic, chef prepared meals that are exceptionally well considered and presented. A more formal setting that you'd expect, with table cloths and a... More

Next door to a restaurant with very poor service is one with excellent service, and one which offers something other than fish. The rose wine was sublime and the bison burger delicious. Above all- exquisite service and a long relaxing lunch overlooking the beach. Not cheap, but worth a nice lunch and a spot of shade!

Wow. My wife and I got a little boat from Hvar and came to Zori. We had no idea what to expect and hadn't made a reservation. We arrived and were greeted with smiles and welcoming staff. They quickly sorted out seating for us and thus began a spectacular meal! The food was impeccable. The service even more so. If... More

Beautiful restaurant located in Palmizana bay. Food is delicious. Great wine list and wonderful service by a very knowledgable waiter. The fish soup was very good as was the tagliatelle with shrimps and truffles and the beef carpaccio. The semifreddo zori for dessert is the pick - super delicious! Restaurant is lovely however the prices are expensive so be prepared.... More
