Came in very late on Easter Sunday and they were, not only able to, but happy to, accommodate us well after 10pm. Delightful service. Meals were delicious. After reading a few reviews below, I would say my fish was a tiny overdone, but that's because I'm a sashimi type of person. Wish I had asked specifically for it underdone, but regular guests probably would've found it very well cooked. The flavours - fantastic. My boyfriend had the Beef, gnocchi and black truffle - simply... WOW. As a price expectation - both our mains were 150kuna. The chocolate fondant (soufflé on the menu) was also delicious.

There is a cover charge so may be a bit more expensive on the bill than what was expected, but we tipped on top of this because of the outstanding service, so for us, it was worth it.

Maybe the best one in Hvar, better than few ones on the top of this "guild".
Very good place. Dishes are excellent, wines very good, and services very hight level.
This restaurant cooks very good food with a bit of original creation.
If possible enjoy of tables outside it's a pretty place

We absolutely loved Giaxa! It was probably the best meal we had during our honeymoon in Croatia (Dubrovnik, Hvar, Zadar, Zagreb). Service was great, we enjoyed a table outside. We started with the gnocchi in asparagus sauce - hands down my favorite item. We had the Croatian fish and green beans for our main and enjoyed that as well. We had some great wines with our meal as well. Cannot say enough positive things about this place. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

Great food, service and lovely setting - a little more upscale than some of the more rustic establishments so opportunity to dress up! Our waiter was excellent and demonstrated great knowledge of the menu and wine pairings. The only reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is that our main fish dishes were a little overcooked, and it was more expensive than I expected (admittedly, none of the good restaurants in Hvar are cheap). Would highly recommend the starter dish of home made pasta with prawns, cream and truffles, yum!

Many restaurants in town serve the same food and prices are almost identical. We settled for this one because the decor was appealing and the hostess took the effort to sell the restaurant and entice us. Food was not bad either.
