Our hotel recommended and it was the best place we have been! We had the risotto and the steak with salad. The steak was amazing, really soft. The cheese cake was fantastic. The service is also very good.

“Attentive service”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Might be we were the only customer in the restaurant, we got all attention from the waiter. We visited Hvar yesterday with bad weather. Had heavy rain around lunch time. We just needed to find a place to get in. Then, we stepped in Passarola without looking at the previous reviews.

Also, it was the decor of the restaurant attracting us to walk in.

We ordered two pasta and one main course to share. The pasta stuffed with shrimp was excellent However, the pasta with ham and sun dried tomato was so salty. When the waiter found out our opinion about the salty pasta, he immediately took away and exchanged to warm otopus salad for us. The salad was as good as the pasta stuffed with shrimp,

The portion of lamb chop main course is huge. It contained 6 pieces of lamb chops cooked in medium rare. The lamb chops can be rated as good as New Zealand's with the size of Australian lamb chop. Excellent dish.

We took 4 glasses of wine waiter recommended as wine tasting. Rose, white and two red. All are local Croatian wine. Excellent also.

When it was raining hard outside, we combined wine tasting with great meal.

We will recommend this restaurant for lunch and dinner to anyone who visit Hvar.

“Best meal in Hvar”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Passarola has outstanding food and amazing service. Some of the best and friendliest waiters we had in all our time in Croatia, which is really saying something because everyone was so nice. The upstairs terrace is beautiful, and since it was a little chilly outside, the staff brought my wife a blanket. The wine selection was excellent, the meals were equally great and the delicious desserts topped off a great evening.

Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

we were there yesterday and had Octoplus as starter, then salads, as main courses pasta and fish. Everything was perfect! food, environment and staff kind and help full.
only minor issue was that the waiter forgot to remove the peppers from my wife's dish... may be too much in a hurry caused this...
