Was a bit sceptical given how close this place was to the waterfront but the food and the service were first class. Great fresh shrimps and delicious seafood risotto. Table wine was cheap and very drinkable. Great spot for before a night out in the town.

We had some typical seafood dishes and everything was good. Staff was also very attentive and kind. Sitting outside on a narrow street makes a pleasant scenery for family dinner.

We booked this the day before and were really glad. It was full but we were offered which table we preferred. We had the catch of the day (sea bream and sea bass). The staff couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful. The wine tasted great and the food was superb. A great meal, great location and great staff,... More

Lovely food, we had the muscles, shrimp and spag Bol and they were all equally as tasty! The bill was very reasonable however we did not order any alcohol, just fizzy water. There could be a little wait for a table but we went to red red red around the corner for a couple of drinks to pass the time.

The white scampi risotto was excellent . The fish was supper fresh to the eye, and the kids loved the bolognese. Service was excellent. Really good family kitchen.

This place is so special. We had mixed up our dinner reservation that evening and were suggested by Dalmatino to try Junior because we like seafood. We arrived to a very cool, bustling street up from the port and the lovely server said it wasn't possible right away. We asked if we could wait and she said of course and... More

We came here because of the fantastic reviews, and indeed it didn't disappoint. The waiter was so friendly and helpful, the food was well-seasoned and cooked to perfection. But toward the end of the meal, just before we were about to ask about dessert/coffees, I suddenly got struck by a terrible case of what I can only assume was food... More

It is definitely the best restaurant in Hvar. Easy going and friendly staff and honest prices! It is the cheapest in the area but has the best food! A rare gem to find!

My friend and I ate here on the last night of our holiday, based on the strength of its rating on here. It definitely lived up to its good reputation for so many reasons. The waiter was lovely, helpful and friendly. He told us the truth about portion sizes so we didn't over-order which I always rate. We had the... More

We were sick after this place. The shrimps and mussels are not fresh, they are Chinese and frozen. Even the oil of the French fries was very very old, tasting very bad. Water ok. Price correct. Good wind. The friend of the shop in face is sitting outside in front of you smoking all the time and shouting on the... More

Restaurant "Junior" is a family run restaurant in the old town centre. We serve local and organically produced food. My grandma, the owner, stil cooks the food with her secret recipes and my father,her son, provides the restaurant with the fresh fish that he caught on the very same day. "Junior" is a great restaurant if you'd like to taste traditional dishes and to experience truly local Hvar atmosphere.
