“best meal in Hvar town”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

not that much choice the menu must be the smallest in town and you have to be quick (or very patient ) to get a table especially indoors but well worth it - simple fresh food presented beautifully - they pick their produce carefully and don't over complicate it - the waiters are polite , well informed about what they are serving and have a story for every free aperitif especially its medical benefits ! There is no rush to get you out they let you stay as long as you want too which makes it a lovely relaxing experience not like some of the restaurants in town which charge you an extortionate amount and try and move you on asap so they can fill the table again

“You can't go wrong by coming here for dinner”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

The crew working at this restaurant is great! Yes, they do give you some extras such as local aperitifs to drink! The waiters are English speaking and have a great sense of humour. The atmosphere is pleasant, with a decor blending the traditional with the modern in a tasteful way. Most of the tables are outside in the narrow street, with a few more downstairs in the basement, where we stayed. The menu is varied including the traditional Dalmatian fare and some international dishes. For starters we had the zucchini which were deliciously prepared with olive oil, pistacchio and nuts; others in our party as main dish had the gnocchi with squid tinture and shrimps which they considered very good. The gnocchi with veal and dates was also delicious but the "pièce de resistance" was the old family recipe from two of the waiters grandma: a light date cake. This restaurant is highly recommended.

“They give you so many great aperitifs”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Dalamatino is wonderful. We were treated wonderfully. Our fantastic server started us off with a complimentary brandy, then brought us a complimentary bread and olive oil, the. Another complimentary carob liquor, then our entrees, then a pear digestif. Not only was our food incredible and the service perfect. They generously gave us 3 shots of traditional alcohol, thoughtfully spaced and paired with our meals. Will always remember Dalamatino...

“Absolutely delicious!!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Dalmatino was perfect in every way! The food was absolutely scrumptious, the restaurant has a great ambiance, and the service was excellent. We actually ate lunch and dinner here on the same day because we couldn't stop thinking about how delicious the food was after lunch. We ordered the grilled sea bass, black gnocchi with shrimp, filet with truffles and mushrooms, and grilled veggies. Everything was fantastic! The prices were also very reasonable considering the high quality and freshness of the food. We will definitely be back on our next visit and highly recommend this restaurant to others.
