“Its good...but not that good.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The service is great, the atmopshere is nice, the food is good, but it could be a lot better. Its not a real foodie place.The menu could be me more imaginative and the dishes could be a little bit richer in flavours. Considering the price..they should be. Maybe with time..

“Fine Food but Dwindling Attentive Service”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

After reading all the recent positive comments. I booked a table for my husband and I at Passarola for our last night at Hvar. We were happy at first. The waiter was attentive. I was impressed with the presentation of my main meal (bass fillet) and it tasted as good as it looked. Unfortunately, we were forgotten soon after our main course plates were collected. I understood that our waiter was busy looking after two other couples and a party of 6/8 but there were more than just one waiter in the restaurant! After 25 minutes waiting, my husband had to ask for the dessert menu. The semifreddo and cheesecake had improved our mood again. However, we were let down by waiting for the bill another 20 minutes later. Our waiter was apologetic but sadly I was left disappointed with restaurant by the end of the night

“Authentically good”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Three years ago we were somewhat disappointed by the meals we had in Dubrovnik, but in Hvar it was very different. We went twice to the Passarola restaurant and it was the ability to do relatively simple things well that counted: an accompaniment of grilled potatoes with truffle sauce was simple, but luxurious in flavour as was the Swiss chard and fennel. On the second visit we had the charcoal grilled sea bass, utterly fresh and so different in texture and taste from the usual (paying by the weight means it is not cheap, but is good value). It is important to be upstairs in the open to have the whole experience, and also for wine lovers the local Hvar and Dalmatian wines are a treat worth experiencing.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Best food and most attentive personnel in Hvar. If you are looking for a nice rooftop dining with class in between the charming little street of the old city, then this is your place. Sea food risotto is exceptional.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Beautiful restaurant, great service, amazing food and surprisingly large portions. We sat on the upper floor with an open roof, just under the stars! It is more pricey, but worth the splurge. You will not regret it!
