The Gregada my gf ordered was great but the steak I ordered medium but was actually cooked rare so that was a bit disappointing.

Waiter managed to get us a free desert and coffees to make up for this however. The chocolate soufflé was tasty.

Overall cost was ok - it's kinda on par with Hvar prices. Service was indifferent... I was going to order the Sea Bass but was totally put off after the waiter said it was from a farm and not the sea. Wouldn't have cared if he didn't say but found this a bit bizarre so ended up picking the steak :/. Maybe I'm being fussy but I've never experienced that anywhere else I've ever been to.

Menu is a bit small but it's still worth visiting if you're in Hvar as it's quite authentic local cuisine in a really lovely setting.

Really good food, good portion sizes, nice setting. Staff is friendly, we really enjoyed our meal. Came in the mid afternoon, but seems like a place you want to make a reservation. We got fish cooked traditional style, which was really good. Also the Octopus salad was our favorite.

It was a delicious meal from start to finish and the service was 5 star. The staff was knowledgable of every dish and wine on the menu and although it is a pricey restaurant it was by far our best meal and service in the island.

3 course set lunch cost €16. Love the food, especially the main dish, traditional stewed fish. The fish meat is so tender and goes well with the tomatoes sauce. Thumbs up!

Wow, what a beautiful setting! Inside the old city walls, a beautiful patio, where we had a really nice evening. Seafood platter as a starter. Yunmie. And typical fish stew (two types) as main. All very delicious.
Accompanied by a good local, white wine (Posip).
Friendly service too.
This is really Hvar!
