We stumbled across this restaurant off the main square on our first night in Hvar, it was gone 9pm and they were still very busy but managed to squeeze a table for two outside. The staff were very friendly, they don't take card and we didn't have any local currency but they let us pay in GBP and gave us... More

One Of my favorites! Best service!!! The staff is incredible, and the food is awesome! It is a tradition for us to go there every year, and the food taste exactly the same every year. You will never be disappointed in this restaurant. The atmosphere is so nice, and typical Croatian! Go there.... If you get a table😊

Too many restaurants (such as Black Pepper) try to offer fancy versions of local classics - this restaurant sticks to its roots. The staff are confident of the quality of their food and they make no qualms about raising your expectations as your order. Surprisingly, they lived up to high expectations. We had the full monty of shrimp pasta followed... More

Busy restaurant with seating inside and outside. Good service and very prompt. Food was nice but I thought the menu was limited. ( I actually wanted salad as a main meal but they wouldn't do that) I ended up having seafood spaghetti which was delicious

Fruti de made was fantastic. If your significant other asks for a taste, do not let them because you will run out of perfectly cooked pasta.

Everything was very good, with the exception of the mussels which were amazing. Some of the freshest and tastiest I've had, even compared to PEI in PEI (Prince Edward Island). The girls next to us ordered on the appearance of ours and literally finished the steaming broth with a spoon (we opted for bread, silly Americans as we are).

The place was OK, but the portions are too small compared to the price. My girlfriend had shrimps and I had a steak. The Shrimp serving was too small for a main course. When ordering a steak, you have to order sides, like fries and vegetables as extras. We ordered French fries and bread, but got grilled vegetables. The waiter... More

Ordered octopus salad and fish stew for 2 people (it’s a lot of food). Stew had a few different kinds of fish (incl monkfish) and potatoes. This was really good, local dish that we had wanted to try.
