“A restaurant gem”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

Was at the Passarola a couple of days ago. We kind of stumbled into it, easy to miss but we are very happy we decided to eat there. We had an middle aged man as a waiter and he did a very good job in giving us advice on what to eat and what kind of wine that be good to drink. I to the cheese platter for starter and it was delicious. My girlfriend had the local mozzarella salad and she really liked that to. For the main dishes we took two different meat dishes and the where cooked to perfection, mine medium rare and my girlfriends medium. Finished everything of by having lovely desserts. We sat on the outside terrace a floor up, and that is to recommend if there are any seats left. We came fairly early that evening the restaurant filled up pretty quickly. I wouldn't hesitate to come back for another meal, had a wonderful evening.

“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

My wife and I were on vacation around Croatia and decided to spend a couple nights in Hvar. We found a hostel close to the coast line and were recommended this place our first night. I rarely write reviews, and specifically created a tripadvisor account specifically for this place. First off, the decor was beautiful, and the space was nice and intimate. Very relaxing, especially underneath the night sky. They have an open area right underneath the sky which we opted for of course. My wife loved the tuna we ordered, I got the beef fillet, and we shared the cheese plate, all of it was devoured as soon as it hit our table. Mico was fantastic and totally gave us the class on regional wines from the area. He was really attentive and detailed with everything and it definitely made for a great experience. We love to travel and although this was our first time to the Balkans, Croatia especially is such a beautiful area and if you happen to find yourself in Hvar, please go here! You wont be disappointed!

During a season we work in two exchanges if you want to have dinner on upper level. First is till 20:10, second is after 22:10. If you make reservation through internet (passarola.hvar@gmail.com) you wouldn't misheard on the phone and it would be easier for us to spell your name properly; etc...
