A little out of the main town this restaurant offers good quality fresh food at better prices.

The atmosphere was lively and the restaurant was very busy. We had to wait for a table but the owner brought us a complimentary glass of wine and a cushion when we sat on the wall! He was very accommodating!

The food was good and clearly very fresh. All traditional Dalamation dishes are served. House wine was good.

Service was attentive however less refined than other restaurants in the town but it was very welcoming and felt traditional! The restaurant is on a terrace overlooking the town.

It was reasonable value and one of our cheaper meals in Hvar.

We really enjoyed it!

We were recommended Lungo Mare by our hostel (Skansi) and were not disappointed. In our five days on Hvar, we ate here three times. The staff are lovely, the food in amazing (fresh, large fish portions, lovely steak dishes etc) and the atmosphere is brilliant. Pero the owner is absolutely lovely- if there is a queue for a table (which there was every night we went), he gives a free glass of wine and makes your wait comfortable, but also does not rush you at all when you are seated, no matter how many people are waiting. The prices here are SO reasonable, about half price of the harbour front restaurants where the food is not as good at Lungo Mare Definitely recommend this place! We ate at some other restaurants that were recommended but to be honest we were disappointed as Lungo Mare was by far the best. I would recommend the tuna steak- it is divine.

We were disappointed with this restaurant, having read the TA reviews we expected something special. The tables were jammed very close together which inhibited conversation. We had seafood risotto and fried prawns for mains, both were just average, nothing special. The house wine was pretty ordinary too.

Yesterday I went there with my husband for dinner. We haven't booked a table before, but about 7:30 some were left. After 1 hour there was a big que waiting for the tables, but the owner oh the locall served them home-made wine :)
Now, about the food- my husband ate grilled lamb with garnishes, roasted potatoes, green beens and something like tomato- risotto - for him perfect! it was prepared on grill just before serving, so juicy and nice smelling. We had also octopus salad as a starter- served in a big shell - very tasty. Home made wine- very good, and a drink as a desert... - delicious.
The service is perfect - even if crowded, You don't have to wait long!
We will be back!
Excellent!!!

Just wonderful food, service and ambience. Arguably the best meals we've had this holiday and reasonably priced too. The friendly waiter's recommended wine choice was superb. Could not fault this place.
