“Great Proximity to Harbour--Attentive Service and Quality Seafood”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

For fresh seafood and professional, courteous, service this was the best experience in Hvar. Our Server was attentive, spoke multiple languages, and made good reccomendations on wine pairings and food selection. A good place to explore Croatian cuisine and share tapas with friends. I would reccomend going before 10:30pm as the 'Carpe Diem' night club next door picks up and gets quite loud.

“Good seafood, friendly service !”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Nice location, it was relaxing just to sit there and watch the boats in the harbour. Octopus was tasty, so was the fish . Service was fast and friendly. Prices are a bit high compared to other same level restaurants in Croatia. The floor was extraordinary,
you can watch fishes swimming underneath. The place was full, we were lucky to get table without reservation.
