We were attracted by this restaurant's 'Excellent' rating. However, we cannot agree with it. I ordered marinated fish, a mixed salad and bread. They were all very good. My wife ordered a Dalmatian dish that, in English, was billed as beef stew. In fact, it was slices of lukewarm beef with a sauce poured over it. In fact, the problem seems to be with this "national dish". I have had it elsewhere and the version m wife had was better though unattractive.
We ordered the house red wine which we thought unacceptable even if home-made. Much better Hvar red wines are readily available from the supermarket. To the restaurant's credit they did not charge us for the wine and the selection platters that the next table were eating looked delicious.
So our advice would be do not touch the red wine or the beef stew if you go.

This is a great little romantic find. Dimly lit, tiny tables and a quiet atmosphere make you want to cuddle up to your honey and enjoy. Servers were great at making suggestions. Just a house wine (white or red) is available, but it was fine. Marinated fish was amazing, Chef's special chicken was great, Croatian bread wasn't terribly impressive, drunken figs were yummy and unique. Great atmosphere inside with small tables and a dimly lit interior. I'd definitely go back to sample a few more items.

Found this restaurant while walking down from the Hvar castle. The ambience looked nice and when the lady explained it's a Dalamatian Tapas restaurant we thought to give it a try. Fish fillet was fairly tasty, stuffed bread not that great and Pasticada with njoki quite tasty. The desserts were interesting. Drunken figs was decent but the "Selection of hand baked Croatian patisserie" was a real surprise. Too many pastries with melons. Overall we were quite satisfied.

The food is delicious, people are friendly to explain all details about the meals, prices are very fair and the restaurant is very beautiful too. Worth going many times during your stay to try all the possibilities.
