Last four years I'm spending my vacation in city of Hvar and I never miss a visit to a restaurant "Gariful". I would like to recommend it for all hedonists who enjoy superb seafood and really good wine. I know when I come there friendly staff will offer me only fresh fish which is a rare thing to find. This fabulous restaurant is great for all those who are living a ZEN!!! :)

I enjoyed myself and let the Mediterranean atmosphere take over me in this restaurant. Serving exclusively fresh seafood and Adriatic fish and had amazing wine list. Enjoy your food by soft candlelight as you look out over Hvar harbor. This is perfect holiday dining spot, no wonder it was highly recommended.
