Hvar is a seafood heaven - but what they're serving at Gariful is s*** on a golden plate!
Yes, it's very important, normally you've to wait outside until they let you in... but when you have a table reserved as we had you're allowed in without waiting. People are posh, well dressed, no doubt... but the disco music from the next door disco doesn't allow any conversation (at least where we were sitting).
But the worst is the food! We had two overcooked seafood pasta with a tasteless sauce and some !!! frozen!!! small shrimps beside some clams. Then we had a "tuna salad" where the tuna came out of the cane, a tuna carpaccio which a) was cut too thick and b) was still frozen when it arrived. At the shrimp cocktail the shrimps were still swimming - in bought-in cocktail sauce.
After this desaster we decided not to go any further, pay and leave.
Gariful is the worst restaurant we experienced at Hvar and surounding islands. I think a FishMac at McDonalds is at higher qualiy than the food at Gariful!
For me it's shocking how many people prefer a "posh place" over good food.
