The staff, food and ambiance were all excellent. The staff were courteous and knew enough about their food and wine to be able to advise us. The food had a mixture of standard dishes plus some interesting creations - beef carpaccio was superb, chicken with truffles, broccoli soufflé and a butternut squash sauce was amazing value. All in all a... More

Super food, the Mangold (steaks) caught that very morning made a Tuna look like a mackerel! Waiters who know their wine also helped make a wonderful evening even more special! You need to turn up and wait, but the wait is worth it!!! We will be back!

Had lunch here with two courses. The carpaccio was very tasty, the risotto was pretty good. Nice atmosphere in a narrow backstreet, decent service though occasionally a bit unattentive.

It is situated in a quiet cobblestone street and smells of romance :) The food was fresh and utterly fantastic, the waiter kind and the wine selection diverse. The only little problem with this restaurant is that its quite pricey yet... More

We spent a lot of time reviewing trip advisors advice on "where to eat" in Hvar. Giaxa was rated in the top 10 and judging by the pictures, it looked perfect for a beautiful meal. My boyfriend and I visited the evening before and soaked up the atmosphere for Giaxa and it has the most charming setting in the old... More

Loved the whole experience. Charming location on quiet alley away from loud partiers. Greeted by professional and elegant staff led by Ivona. Enjoyed cocktails outside while waiting for table (reservations recommended). Seating outside, in courtyard and inside. Food was well presented and fabulous. Loved everything from 4 course seafood special to lamb entree. Beef carpaccio was best ever had. Staff... More

Had the very Sea Plate starter to share, great range and flavours but straight from the fridge and very cold. The red wine too came at 8% from the fridge, we asked for it to be decanted so it could breathe and warm up. For mains we had the very good Lamb pašticada and the Dalmatian Brodeto both of which...
