“Our favourite Croatian dining experience!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

After a review from our host, we decided to check out Lungo Mare.

We arrived just after 9pm and it was still packed, but they found us a table for 4 within 5 minutes.

The place is extremely busy, so at first it took a bit for us to get served - but the waitress was so helpful.

We ended up trying 2x Hvar Platters for entree (ham, cheese, anchovies, olives, octopus salad) which were plentiful and tasty! Two of our party had the grilled squid which were awesome, and I shared the seafood platter for 2 with a friend. The platter was amazing - tuna, scampi, fish and prawns (all grilled) and some vegetables as well. We all ended up picking at the fish!

The waitress helped us pick our wine (which was lovely), and we got a complimentary starter of bread with fresh tomato/herbs/rocket, and a shot of liqueur at the end.

This is by far the best dining experience we've had in Croatia so far - you must go!!

“Average seafood”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

We love Tripadvisor, we use it every time we're out traveling. And in most cases it leads us to amazing restaurant.

After reading that it was placed as number 4 in Hvar we wanted to test it.

This was however a disappointment.

The food we got wasn't near as exciting as it could have been. Don't try the scampi, and the seafood risotto my girlfriend had was just average.

“Great food, unique atmosphere, reasonable prices!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

I absolutely loved the warm, homey atmosphere in this charming family-run restaurant. The food is delicious and made from fresh produce, the owners are lovely, genuinely friendly people who have definitely put their hearts into the business, and the prices are very reasonable, especially compared to other restaurants in Hvar, which tend to be overpriced. In short, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for excellent food, service and affordable prices.

“Great service. Great food.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were recommended to come here from our hostel and it was great. The owner and chef is hilarious and sat with us while we ate dinner and taught my friend how to cook. The service was great and the food was delicious. Portions were pretty big but we all had salads and pastas and were satisfied.
