Ordered the fish stew for 2 and it didn’t disappoint. Lots of different fish in a garlicky potato broth. Don’t be squeamish. Get stuck in and you certainly won’t go away hungry. A litre of local white was ideal. A lot of Croatia fish restaurants...More

Sweet little restaurant in between the cobblestone alleyways of hvar center. It was packed with tourists which made us second guess the quality of the food, needless to say the food did not disappoint. The lobster/ seafood pasta was incredible, perfectly al dente, simple, yet...More

This restaurant was recommended by our Airbnb host who said it was the best in Hvar. He was not wrong, 10/10 is selling it short. We found the restaurant just up some stairs from the square surrounded by little artistic jewellery shops. The outdoor seating...More

I had sea bream. Pretty good. Husband had mussels...very small, nothing special. Ordinary bread to soak up sauce. Good service. Not sure why our hotel steered us there.

Macondo is a classic Mediterranean restaurant. Professional waiters are not pretending to be your best friends, there is no sous vide, no foraging, no deconstructed meals. There is only good fish. I know something about fish and grilled John Dory was fantastic. Grilling big John...More

Opened in 1989, Macondo is a restaurant with a long tradition. Located in a picturesque stone street in the old part of town within the town walls, it offers an authentic Mediterranean experience. The restaurant's name is inspired by the novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez, which earned him the Nobel prize in literature in 1982. We even named one of our dishes "Big Mama" after one of the dominant female characters from the novel. Thanks to its team and excellent gastronomical foundations, Macondo's story has been evolving for many years and the restaurant is establishing itself as one of must-see places on the Hvar culinary scene.
