Very good food! Everything we ate (mostly sea food) was delicious, but the fried potatos were divine. The place was nice and quite and the staff was lovely. We came back 3 times in our 7 day vacation in Hvar.

The terrace is very nice with lots of vegetation and the kitchen and toiled sparkling clean.The staff was very friendly and fun to talk to. The 6 of us returned here the second time and all order the grilled squid with french fries (that are...very tasty, like my grandma use to make). I totally recommend this place, and for sure we will go also for the third time.More

amazing!! I visited the santa marija restaurant today (following a recommendation on TA). WOW! i have been to hvar very regularly for a number of years and i know a number of restaurants during this time. what I can say is that the santa marija...is one of my TOP recommendations from today! i can't remember that i have ever eaten such good seafood pasta in my life - never !! the absolute hit. the portions are huge (i even had to cancel the main course). the family business also offers its own olive oil, wine, etc. ) the service is super friendly. a real recommendation !!More

We had relaxed countryside dinner. For appetizer we ate octopus salad which was great. For main meal we order fish plater for 2. Fishes and shrimps were so fresh and well prepared, probably caught that day. I don't remember when I ate shrimps on the...grill that are so suitably prepared as this one. Portions are big, you won't stay hungry, for sure. The desert was carob cake which was also excellent. Before we leave, waiter bring us 2 carob liquors. The prices are good for food quality you get. I would recommend this restaurant for everyone who wants enjoy local cuisine in relaxed surrounding.More

We came here as we had hired a car. Nestled just outside of Stari Grad, it feels like a restaurant which embodies the traditions Of Hvar. The waiters/owners were so friendly and attentive. The dishes affordable, good sized portions and delicious. It was a splendid...time and we stayed for a long time. Thank you again for a lovely evening!More

This place is little gem and must be visited if you are staying close to Stari Grad. Owned by local family, great dalmatian food and everything served fresh and organic. Wine, olive oil, meat or seafood whatever you order you won't be disappointed. Make sure...you make reservation before visiting as it knows to be busy.More
