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.

Thanks to TA we read some reviews and were looking for 1 of 2 restaurants to eat at one night. Luckily we stumbled upon Juniors first and I am so glad we did!

Location...tucked away on a side street off the main square. We actually saw the sign walking along the Promenade from Carpe Diem to the main square, but it is a little hidden. It's just a few tables outside on a cute walkstreet.

Food...We got the shrimp risotto and black spaghetti with monk fish. They were both unique and great! My husband and I both loved the black spaghetti, it had great flavor and was cooked perfectly.

Also excellent prices for Hvar. It was the cheapest place for beer we found, and the food prices are very reasonable. If you are looking for something a little different and want a homecooked kind of meal, then you should try Juniors.

This restaurant was recommended to us by someone local as it is owned by fishermen and we fancied fresh fish for dinner. The food was indeed fresh and good. The service was good. Diners beware the cost of rosé wine - which was very over priced and made the overall cost of the evening our most expensive to date.

Ate out here on our first night in hvar on the recommendation of our hostel owner. We were extremely happy, we are travelling on quite a small budget so cook most nights. We managed to get an incredible squid ink risotto, calamari (best I have ever had), salad, bread, drinks and coffee for two for less than 200 kuna which we were very happy with. The service was brilliant also.

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.
