Had a fantastic dinner on May 23rd. My husband had the Gregada, a Hvar speciality, I ordered the beef medallions with gnocchi. Omg - the best meat I've had, this was perfection. Service is excellent, prices fairly steep but not too bad. The menu is a bit too small, I wasn't really after steak, but the dishes they do, they... More

This lovely little restaurant is at the end of a narrow, picturesque pedestrian alley and has tables both inside and outside. It was a beautifully warm evening and there were very few people about so we chose to sit outside. We enjoyed that very much, but had the city been more crowded we would probably have been more comfortable inside.... More

Amazing food and amazing service. We had the lobster pasta and it was absolutely fabulous. One of the starters we ordered was tortellini with local cheese and mushrooms and it was divinal, tasted as if it came from a Michelin start restaurant. You could tell a lot of thought went into the ingredients and preparation.

We were looking a nice quiet restaurant with good food in Hvar and we found this. In fact we were having our dinner so early, about 7 p.m.) that we were the only customers in the restaurant in the beginning. The service was good, we got some olives and a tiny pie plus a small home-made yoghurt fo starters, free... More

I had ravioli with cheese filling in a truffle sauce which was very nice followed by the local fish stew,which had prawns,white fish and octopus with polenta. My friend had... More

Giaxa is located just off the main square in old town (a few blocks up). It's a great place for a fine dining experience without having to break the bank. The staff was extremely courteous and attentive - making very good suggestions for appetizers (the sea bass sashimi was outstanding) as well as knowing their wine list top to bottom.... More

We went to other higher rating restaurants in Hvar but they were all closed although TripAdvisor indicated they are open for business. We are very happy we chose this one afterwards, the interior is very interesting and yet very cozy The wine selection is excellent and the food were cooked very simply and delicious, nothing overpowered the food Just excellent

The restaurant is beautiful, and yes, as some other mentioned, it is pricey. But well worth it. With a perfect set up, great staff and amazing food, it should be pricey. Great local wine, oysters from Ston, locally caught lobster.... All delicious... We will visit again....
