“Locally recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

We ate here after a local waiter at another restaurant recommended it when we mentioned we wanted traditional food. It was late at night, and most other customers were finishing up. They still took their time with us and enjoyed a wonderful evening here in a little authentic alleyway of Hvar.

“Fantastic Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I took my partner here for her birthday and the staff really made an effort to make her feel special. I ordered the Skampi which was nice, despite me having issues de-shelling it (my own incompetence), whilst my partner had the mixed pan fried seafood which was also very good. It was certainly one of the busier restuarants while we were there (early May). What made really made our night was the waiter brought out some "happy birthday" home made ice-cream cake and complementary champagne, to help us celebrate. They got the small things right to make it a really memorable evening, thanks Leporini!

Enjoy the delicious meal within old walls of city of Hvar and enjoy seeing and being seen as famous and less famous stroll around. Great seafood

“Recommended by locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Taking the view that locals know better than tourists I asked the tourist office for a restaurant recommendation and was told to try this place. It is situated in an allyway in the old town directly opposite the tourist information centre and about a 2 minute walk from it.
What a good choice. Good quality produce, simply but very well prepared, great value. Much better than any of the other places we tried during our Hvar holiday for quality as well as price.
Someore good advice. Avoid the local Hvar wine. It is not available in your local supermarket for a very good reason.

We had dinner at Leporini. Chose it totally accidental and it was the right choice. Food was excellent and service was great. If you are in Hvar, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
