We were looking for dinner for 2, asked one of the staff if they had availability, and the guy didn’t give us the time of day. Didn’t even acknowledge us. Just yelled out “no” as he literally pushed past us. Extremely rude and nasty. Read...all the other reviews saying the same thing. We had no intention of eating here afterwards on any other night.More

We had probably the worst dining experience I have ever had in Macondo. The staff were SO rude. Almost shouting at us when we asked for clean plates saying we were ridiculous then telling his collegues and rolling their eyes at us. We sat next...to an awful group of sleezy men who would not leave us alone. Eventually I had to ask them to stop speaking us, it was very intimidating and they got very aggressive and shouted abuse at us when we rejected them. None of the staff in the restaurant did anything about it or helped us to move tables. They just laughed. The whole experience was so unpleasant for our last night in Hvar. Plus the food is very average. There are much nicer restaurants in Hvar so dont bother with here.More

This restaurant was a recommendation from a local in Hvar so we wanted to try! We ate here on our second night as a family and were lucky to get a table in the alleyway for 7 of us. The service and the food was...delicious. I shared the mixed fritta with my brother in law containing of calamari, prawns and fish. My mum and sister shared the clams and mussels and we had other things too. For main I had the veal with cheese and ham which was delicious! We really enjoyed the food here, so much so that we ate here again for one of our final nights. Another restaurant I will recommend to friends going to Hvar next month!More

The owner was clear from the start that he had a disdain for his guests. The vegetarian option was pasta with chopped vegetables, or, rice with the same (very 1980s). The house fish was good (it is a fish restaurant) but the pork was dry....Attitude was off putting and they don’t accept cards.More

This place doesn’t take cards and we weren’t able to get cash out but by this time we’d ordered wine. Once the waiter knew we weren’t eating and just finishing our wine he was pretty dismissive of us and was keen to move us on,...which we were only too happy to do! Maybe the food is good but the attitude was arrogant.More

We went here based on the picture of the fish being cooked over coals and was very disappointed when the fish served had been fried. It was very tasty but did feel a little misled by the trip advisor and Google images. Also had squid...which was a little overcooked and therfore chewy. Overall an average but expensive meal. 40 kuna for a bottle of karlovacio and nobody in the restaurant at lunch time should have served as fair warning.More

A very quaint little place in a narrow alley way. It’s a little difficult to find but worth search. A single row of tables for two outside and a small dining area inside. Plenty of good food and a never ending wine glass. The staff...were very friendly and attentive. Recommend eating here when Hvar.More

On recommendation from the lovely waiter, we got the ‘Gregada’, a lovely big dish for 2 people of traditional fish stew with potatoes, very tasty and filling! However, it is quite expensive overall and we spent €80 for 1 starter to share and the main...dish!More

This place was so good we went twice during our weekend trip to Hvar. The reviewer that said the food is made without love must have come on an off day. In my experience, which is significant as I've been going to Croatia almost every...year for 20 years, Croatians make all their food with love, but especially here. The Gregada is delicious ( a ton of food, so be prepared to share and have some delicious bread to mop up the sauce). We sat outside as we were there in August and it was comfortable on a little street with a breeze.More

Highly recommend this restaurant. It was one of the best meals on our 14 day Croatia trip and better than more expensive dinners. The service was excellent. We sat inside and had a very welcoming experience. We ordered the mussels, lightly fried shrimp/prawns, and added...a side of pasta. Great portion sizes. The sauce from the mussels was savory and went great with the homemade pasta. Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared. I have been ordering a lot of prawns, and these were the best, for sure. A larger table next to us ordered a large seafood platter, and it looked amazing to share. Thank you for taking us without a reservation!More

The food here tastes average at best. The plates are presented without any love. The grilled vegetables side dish was served cold. There are definitely much better restaurants in Hvar than this one. Save your time and money and go to a different place! Way...too expensive for what you get.More
