Where to Eat in Hvar Island: The Best Restaurants and Bars

December 15, 2017 Tynisha Seiler

Claiming to be the sunniest spot in all of Europe, the Croatian island of Hvar is the perfect destination for tourists seeking the beauty of Mediterranean beaches without the crowds associated with more well-known destinations. Pathways lined with lavender vines lead to secluded coves, small fishing villages and local vineyards, and ferries and catamarans carry visitors across the calm, blue waters to the surrounding islands, all worthy of exploration.

Dinner started with cheerful and greeting staff, everyone was so welcoming and nice. Nice atmosphere, really good looking food, which tastes even better. Unfortunately we were a big group so we had a table inside, but at the end it was even better, cause staff members were always around, making jokes, having a nice conversation with us. Full service experience. Definitely a place to go while you visiting Hvar. I had some difficulties to choose, cause all dishes sounded perfect on the menu. I had fish fillet, every bite was amazing. As well we had some appetizers and of course their famous granny's cake. With was complete delish'. Thank you! ❤️

We love this little wine bar in old Hvar. There is a great selection of wonderful Croatian wine (Dingac and Posip are our favourites). The music is to our taste too - old rock! Although an outside seat is good, it's worth sitting inside just to check out the bottles of wine and other memorabilia!

There is even the possibility to rent a parasol.

We go two times in this family restaurant. The first one was perfect, appetizer with dalmatian ham, cheese and a octopus salad, all perfect. A nice hvarian wine, amazing brow bread, a perfectly cooked and absolutely fresh fish with semifreddo for dessert. The second time we repeat the appetizer but I think we chose badly the second, was a nice plate of meat, chicken and pork, but nothing than good, no memorable. Dry pancake.
They have own garden and make a perfect white wine.

Stopped in to get a treat for our group of eight. We got 2 each of their signature cookies. These thick and crunchy cookies were a huge hit. We chose the double chocolate, chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip and white and dark chocolate chips. This is an absolute must stop for anyone visiting HVAR.

Konoba Vrisnik

In the core of the sunny island of Hvar, in the small village of Vrisnik, there is the family run tavern Vrisnik. Its domestic ambiance and friendly humoured staff will make you wish to return each and every time again. Its blend of pleasant atmosphere and rich offer of Dalmatian cuisine, prepared in the traditional manner, will make your gastronomic experience memorable. Besides the wide choice of Dalmatian dishes, the Vrisnik Tavern offers you also grilled fish and meat specialties, various meals baked under the lid and homemade sweet delicacies, prepared by ancient family recipes. While enjoying the tranquillity of this place and the unique sound of the fire crackling in the heart, you will feel the scents of some ancient times. Welcome and enjoy your meal!

Overall, our experience with restaurants on the Dalmatian coast has been subpar. Usually basic fare, not creative at all, and quite often dubious quality and quantity at inflated prices. The goal seems to be just to rip off tourists without any regard for repeat business. Konoba Vrisnik is an exception, at least in terms of quality of the ingredients and the effort by the owner and the chef. I'd give it 5 stars if graded on a local curve, but 4 stars here for consistency when compared more broadly.
This is not haute cuisine, but well executed Mediterranean fare. The meats and fish are carefully selected and prepared in a simple, yet very tasty fashion. I strongly recommend calling a day in advance and asking what's the best and the freshest for baking "under peka" and order it. Octopus is probably the choicest delicacy prepared this way. Drink the great local wine, especially Plavac Mali (a cousin of Zinfandel/Primitivo).
The setting is inland, but very nice, especially around sunset. Because it is a bit out of the way, the prices are more reasonable, too. Most guests are seasoned Hvar visitors with very few accidental tourists, which one has to like. Members of our party knew the owner, so the service was great, but I can only hope that the same treatment is given to all-comers.

Restaurant Davor Zavala

Dear guests, the history of tourism and hospitality in the Barbic family dates back to 1972 when our grandparents, Kristo and Vinka Barbic, welcomed their first tourists. After them our parents Davor and Vilma Barbic cherished tradition of this work for many years as honorable and honest people. Today, after more than 40 years, the two of us brothers, Krišto and Grgo Barbic, with the help of our parents and the support of our families, strive to provide you with as better service as possible. Although the times are modern, as are we, we still respect the tradition. Feel comfortable and well received in our family restaurant!

If you would like to combine trip around the island and good food this place is for you. Located outside from the main tourist spots nearby Zavala this place offers really nice food at affordable (cheaper) prices than in Hvar.
We had pizza, pasta with shrimps and seafood, and pasta with truffle. Pasta was really delicious, homemade and fresh. Smell was fabulous, you can tell it is different right away and that it`s not from the freezer. There is a beach few steps away so you can enjoy it as well. Zavala is a very small place, there is more to see, but there are lots of winery's so try something on the way home.
