Description: Restaurant "Junior" is a family run restaurant in the old town centre. We serve local and organically produced food. My grandma, the owner, stil cooks the food with her secret recipes and my father,her son, provides the restaurant with the fresh fish that he caught on the very same day. "Junior" is a great restaurant if you'd like to taste traditional dishes and to experience truly local Hvar atmosphere.

We've found it while walking through the street just off the main square. The exterior is average so you might think that the food is also average, but it's a trap. We ordered fish, as we were explained that it is owned by fisherman's family. So we tried, and didn't regret. The taste is the same when your granny cooks it at home. So delicious. The waitress Mariya was very helpful, kind and speaks very good English (even many Croatians don't speak English). All in all, I would recommend it to everyone who want to eat some real Croatian food.

Lovely place in perfect setting on one of the little back alleys just off the harbor front. We ordered a 'side dish' each and found the portion sizes more than adequate as a main meal. Can recommend squid ink and cuttlefish spaghetti or the seafood risotto. Yummy.

The food really was OK. But OK does not really cut it for Hvar Town where you have a wide choice of restaurants all working hard for your business.
Maybe it was our fault (turning up at 3.30 in the afternoon to order lunch) and maybe we should have ordered the fish as I understand this is their speciality.
But the waiter was a shocker and never made us feel welcome from start to finish. I really would have preferred to have served myself rather than put him out so much (which we were made to feel during the entire meal).
Like I say the food was OK but eating out should be more than just OK food. . .

We were wandering along an alley during the afternoon when we were aroused by the aroma of a lobster pasta sauce being prepared. It was to good to refuse and we returned for dinner that evening. Simple setting, the grand daughters are the waiters and the tables are basic but the pastas we chose were superb. A scampi spaghetti, with plenty of freshly grilled scampi, and a black pasta with cuttlefish, absolutely magnificent. Not expensive and luckily not in the main stream guides...you will enjoy

The location is great, even the interior does not look promising. If you sit out, you are at the little alley just in the centre. The food is all home made and really tasty. Try the home made black squid risotto that is probably one of the best ones I've ever had!
