Opened in 1989, Macondo is a restaurant with a long tradition. Located in a picturesque stone street in the old part of town within the town walls, it offers an authentic Mediterranean experience. The restaurant's name is inspired by the novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez, which earned him the Nobel prize in literature in 1982. We even named one of our dishes "Big Mama" after one of the dominant female characters from the novel. Thanks to its team and excellent gastronomical foundations, Macondo's story has been evolving for many years and the restaurant is establishing itself as one of must-see places on the Hvar culinary scene.

Food (seafood, soup) was average, much salted. Waiter became critical when he saw our unfinished food. Perhaps we came at the wrong busy time.

The best restaurants here is Hvar. Long wait without reservation but it’s worth it. The owner is so Kind. They only except Kuna or Euro in cash. The food is so delicious. Very clean. I highly recommend this amazing restaurant.
