Beautiful ambience, delicious food, boring procedure of decanting wine or cutting a steak is turned into an elegant performance. Although the place itself might "smell" arrogant, waiters are utmost attentive, polite and warm-hearted. I have been to many gastronomic jewels of Croatian islands, and this...Hvar restaurant is definitely one of them.More

Two waiters were incredible, food was amazing and the atmosphere was 10/10. I was interested to see the lobsters and fish that are freshly caught every day and the waiter was kind enough to show me. We chose steaks and they were cooked to perfection...followed by a chocolate soufflé! Cannot fault this place! You need to visit during your time in hvarMore

We ate here on our last visit to Hvar in 2019 and in particular had remembered this restaurant for the fabulous food! I pre booked as we were arriving on a Friday and thought it might be busy, plus there were 7 of us. Don't...get me wrong, the food was very tasty but my god, the prices have gone up a lot over the last 3 years. For 5 adults, 1 child and a baby the bill was 750 euros. I think you have to be careful when choosing the local fish as your main as you don't know how much this is always going to be. Service was fantastic but I think this restaurant is for special occasions only!More

Menue, staff attitude and prices suggest you are in a high level place. But it took 1 hour after finishing our starters to serve the main course. At tables nearby same story. Kitchen can't cope with number of tables/guests. Also waiters - though very friendly,...polite and well trained - are too busy to refill wine or take away empty bottles/plates. All in all currently no recommendation. They should only allow half number of maximum capacity to be able to offer proper service.More

Diner in June 2022. We ordered a glass of white wine. Cork taste. We got a new one. We ordered a second glass of white wine, cork again (waiter told it was from the first bottle with cork).As a starter we ordered scallops. There were...not cleaned and we had sand in our mouth all time. We ordered tuna fish as a main dish; my parter wanted it to be medium cooked, but it came rare. Not one dish was of the level of the show around the food. And all of that misery for 130 euro (2 persons). They hoped to see us again. Certainly not.More

The Atmosphere was the most Unique we found on the island. It was beautiful. We were on our honeymoon and they pulled out all the stops. Our server was Marijo and he was an amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the venue and the menu....The seafood was fresh, everything we had was delicious. We also appreciated that they took reservations. I would definitely recommend Passarola to anyone looking for a gourmet dining experience while in Hvar.More

If I could give six stars I would. My husband and I have traveled a great deal and eaten at many five star restaurants. This restaurant stands alone in the food and the service. The wait staff are beyond professional. They are attentive and do...not at all act as if they are pretentious. They are so attentive and knowledgeable. Helpful in making selections. Beyond that the restaurant itself has a wonderful ambiance. If in Hvar do not miss the opportunity to dine at this first class dining establishment.More

We had excellent food throughout Croatia, but this restaurant is a cut above, probably Michelin listed. We ordered a simple steak, but wow it was a premium cut perfectly prepared, complete with an amuse bouche of mushroom pate and a morsel of perfectly fried chicken...skin. We will be coming back to Hvar for many reasons, and this is one.More

An excellent Resturant elevating local dishes with local fresh ingredients. We had the popay spinach ravioli and the porcini mushroom beef tagliatelle followed by an excellent locally inspired cake with lavender orange and olive oil. A must try, I’ve eaten in many Michelin star plate...and bib restaurants and if this place was open all year it should absolutely get a bib. Do yourselves a favour and definitely order dessert.More
