“So good we went there twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant is situated down a side street close to the main church. You can sit in the side street, a small courtyard or inside. The food is high quality and our tempura scampi, and particularly beef carpaccio were both excellent. Good selection of wines are also available.

“best restaurant in Hvar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Restaurant food list is innovative. We came to our friend reccomendation which ate last year in this restaurant, so once we hit Hvar, we wanted to check how was the food. Service was amazing, wine list and food list were preety damn nice. Best meal we had in a long time.

“Charming place with impressive food and staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

This was our first night in Croatia after more than two weeks in Turkey and it was a pleasure, and a relief, to finally see a menu with variety. This place was popular even at 9 pm but we were offered a drink while we waited for a table. Some seating is in the main courtyard and some more is outside in an open area off the stone lined passageway. It all oozed charm

We both ate seafood which was full of flavour and well cooked. The service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Their lead waiter doubles as sommelier and was happy to take us through some of the various Croatian wines. He also gave us some tips for wineries to visit on Hvar.

The food was not cheap but we felt we got what we paid for

“A special place in Hvar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

This a restaurant that we found one night ourselves (not recommended to us) and it was by far one of the best meals we've ever had! The service was excellent and the food was superb! I had the traditionally cooked fish and my husband had the beef cheek. We will be back on our next visit this year! £80 for a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine and coffees.

“Nice setting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We enjoyed a nice meal here! With hindsight, we'd have preferred to have sat in the courtyard but hadn't booked so were on one of the tables in the alleyway outside! Nice but it is, we feel, a bit off putting with people passing close by all the time!! The food was very nice, the staff friendly. Slightly expensive but a more up market experience so we were content with that!
