A place fully deserving of it's 5 stars. The fish with garlic was excellent. The service was impeccable and it was well worth the price.

“Delectable!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Dalmatino was an experience! A must go if you're in Hvar. Last night my bf and I went to Dalmatino after seeing many positive reviews on TA. We ordered the zucchini carpaccio, seafood risotto, and crusted chicken stuffed with cheese & prosciutto (Zagreb schnitzel). We were amazed!! Everything was so fresh and delicious. Not too heavy, and yet we were pleasantly full at the end of our meal. A great bonus was complimentary brandy, garlic bread, tigers milk and port wine. Service was Superb! All wait staff were personable and friendly. We enjoyed our experience and meal so much at Dalmatino last night that we went again tonight. We got the white fish and gnocchi with prosciutto. The white fish was so delicate and melted in my mouth. Our gnocchi were literally like soft pillows that were so tasty! Amazing and moderately priced. Go to Dalmatino for an awesome yet afforable culinary experience!

“Best meal of the holiday... If not ever!!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I can so see why this is number 1. We saw this rated on trip advisor and can now understand why. The food is absolutely stunning, the prices are so cheap for the amount of food and complimentaries you receive. The service is the best I've ever experienced. Just fantastic. Please don't hesitate to go here be wise you will definitely not regret it, we've already booked to to go again before we leave!!

“We fell in love with our waiter.”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

As if the food wasn't enough, our waiter was adorable and the service was amazing. We had a group of 5 so we decided to just order things off the menu and share. Everything was amazing, but by far we loved the octopus carpaccio. We loved it so much that we ended up ordering more for dessert.

They don't take reservations after 7:30pm. We ended up just walking up around 9pm, still in swim suits and cover ups and asking for a table. It took them about 10 minutes to get us seated but we were able to have a beer at the cafe next door until then.

Don't forget to sign the wall of the interior part of the restaurant before you leave!

We also loved Gariful, the food at Dalmatino is on par but Dalmatino's service far exceed's Gariful!

“Excellent food & service!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

My boyfriend and I located this restaurant after finding it listed as the top restaurant in Hvar according to trip advisor - it couldn't be more deserving of its high recommendations and rating.

We were unable to get a table the first night of our holiday which just showed how popular it was so booked a table for the following evening. The service, waiter recommendations, presentation and food were all incredible we couldn't fault the whole experience.

We enjoyed it so much we booked in advance for another 2 evenings on our holiday and had equally brilliant experiences both times. We tried different dishes on the menu each time and loved each one.

Can't recommend this restaurant and staff enough - be warned though if you visit Hvar in high season you will need to book a table especially to sit outside.
