We went there last night, as the view was very nice we decided to have a dinner there. Firs of all, they gave as table next to some other guests so we had to sit with them becouse terasse was overcrouded! When we ordered we discovered that shrimps were frozen and shells were no good. If you take into cosideration that we had dinner one evening at Gariful and we had great dinner that was so good, we payd even more at Plava alga for simething that we were not happy with! Do not go there!!

We ended up in this restaurant after a hostess approached us on the main strip, even though some people find this quite annoying the restaurant was set back and not easily passable so it serves them well to have some one promoting the restaurant where the main crowds are.

The prices were a bit much for our budget but it was our first night and we hadn't explored, however the food was worth what we paid and the sides were included in the meal prices when in some restaurants they're often not,

My bf had the calamari to start, the portion was huge and came with chips ( a bit unnecessary for a starter) we then both had the beef steak with green peppercorn sauce for main, I hadn't realised that beef steak was fillet steak, it was delicious and cooked very well. It worked out about £20 for each of our main courses, but compared to some restaurants n England you wouldn't get such a well cooked cut for this price.

I'd give it a go if you have a good budget as the food was tasty, service was good and the views over the harbour were stunning.

We ordered some drinks and salads for refreshment (5 pm). Salads were miserables, served in a bowl, no sauce, no surrondings. Drinks, well the price on the menu was not the same as the one they charged me : 20 kn for 0.25 of the basic draft beer. I do not recommand.But view is nice

You will most likely be targeted by a pretty lady standing on the waterfront trying to get you to go to their restaurant. One thing we noticed is that this is very common on Hvar.

Location is great, make sure you sit at the very top as the views are amazing.

Food was good, we ordered way too much food not knowing the size of the platters. We had the Greek salad (don't recommend) the cheese from Pag (tasty) and the fish plate for two (recommend). The fish plate comes with 2 white fish, 2 calamari, 2 scampi (similar looking to craw fish) mussels and clams. The waiter also recommended the local white wine which was very good.

Overall it was a good experience with great views.
