We chose this restaurant as it was way from the main square and had a nice atmosphere.we sat in the street adjacent to two their tables, and straight away we felt comfortable chatting to our dining neighbours. The choice of food was good and the house wine was really nice. My daughter chose the seafood platter which she really enjoyed,... More

Had a great time at Macondo, fantastic friendly service. Food was very simple as in most places in Croatia, but made with a lot of care and freshest highest quality ingredients. Would definitely go back and recommend it. Wonderful setting both outside the restaurant with tables set on the street and inside the restaurant.

Lovely little back street mainly pavement seated restaurant, recommended by a receptionist at our hotel. Nice atmosphere and the tastiest seafood pasta dish I have ever had. Busy but good service and inexpensive, house wine by various size carafes also good.

The grilled shrimp was nice but nothing out of the ordinary. The seafood spaghetti was slightly bland and mediocre although it is slightly cheaper than some competitors. House wine was cheap but average and have had far better for similar price. On a positive the ambience was lovely and we had a very nice evening, service was very friendly and... More

Best restaurant in Hvar - we had the Adriatic Grilled Squid and everyone needs to try this. It's amazing, really well priced, atmosphere is just right and the staff is so helpful. Well done!

As a Colombian the restaurant's name resonated (work out why... Hint Garcia Marquez)so I had to try it. I was not disappointed. Really good I had grilled shrimps and my wide had lobster spaghetti. Well presented really good flavored.

Standard fish fare, prepared like every place else. No complaints--although shrimp salad had no taste and waiter pushed boiled fish dinner for two. We bit and ordered. Not wowed.

Great sea food and wine. Great service and ambiance. A place to visit one more time. The owner told us that he works with local private fishermen, so the sea food here is always fresh and local.

What a great find. Full of locals and all the staff are locals too - good sign. Set back a couple of streets from the main square, this place has a cosy feel. The food is simple but fresh and delicious. Great service - definitely worth a visit

Friendly staff and good food. The staff are very helpful with the selection of wine and food. They have lots of fresh seafood. Again, as with most of the restaurants in this area, the tables are in the laneway with people passing by all the time. However, this is not noticeable after a few minutes. Traffic is usually light.

Thank Yorkiegirl48
