“Worst meal I had in Croatia”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Nobody outside to greet, or take you to a table.
40 minutes for a pizza. They weren't busy.
Slow service, uninterested waiting staff who spent more time hanging out by the kitchen entrance than with or near customers.
Ingredient quality was terrible (the bacon, in example, had pieces of bone in it)
Food was dry (read:overcooked) and bland.
Overpriced for what it was - there are plenty of better places to grab such stuff all over Hvar.

Tldr - steer clear. Plenty of better value options in Hvar

“Rude staff, inconsistent portions”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Went here because a friend recommended it. I ordered the exact same salad which one staff member was making at the time of my order. I was surprised to get the salad with half the amount of feta cheese and other extras then in the ones I saw earlier. When I asked about it, the girls just gave me a dirty look and the guy said that my portion was "standard" and his portions were "generous". It tasted so so anyway, so the size did not matter at the end.

“Tasty pizza and great people-watching!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Ended up at Mama's late in the evening and settled in to relax and watch the parade of club goers strut by....

We had a mozzarella pizza which was light, crispy not greasy crust and a perfect portion for 2. Finished with the best Caprese salad ever!!!

“Mama leone”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Went here because a friend recommended it. Great food and the drinks were great. Nice Gina dn tonic --they bring it so you can mix it yourself! Wonderful view of the water and boats coming in.

“Average all around”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Title pretty much sums it up. Average food, below average house red wine. Above average service. It'll fill the void but its nothing to write home about.
