Found out about Gojava from the Tripadviser, as we always do when visiting new places and learned why they were so many great comments about this place. Loved the food and the service. Because of some confusion in order, our main dish was running late, but the owner was so concerned and apologetic and served us a bottle of wine... More

Danka, the owner served us and she was the sweetest and most helpful. Konoba Gojava serves true, authentic Croatian dishes cooked to perfection (and with reasonable prices)! We ate here on our last night, but wish we discovered it earlier! I would definitely eat there again and again! Must try's: Drunken fig dessert and their homemade cherry liqueur (wish I... More

We stumbled across this place when we were wondering around old town looking for a place to eat after not booking anything. I'm glad we did. The setting, food and hosts were absolutely great. Both my partner and I agreed it was one of best nights in Hvar! I had the white fish with smoked Tuna which came with zucchini... More

Won't spend many lines on this place, the food deserves 4 stars, we had excellent brodetto and a fantastic tuna steak but the top mark is owed to the German-Croatian lady that served us who was beyond nice, don't know her name but if service on hvar was everywhere like this this would be paradise, sadly it's not (one more...

There are several good restaurants in Hvar, but this Konoba gives you an opportunity to experience the taste of fresh seafood and traditional Croatian dishes seated in a candle-lit stone staircase. Perfect for a romantic dinner or three (we ate here 4 times in a week!). This is a food-experience you don´t want to miss when you visit Hvar. Also,... More

Remember to book if eating after 8pm in Hvar and be sure not to miss this restaurant. Definitely one of my best meals to date, cooked on an old open fire. The service was attentive and helpful with the Croatian charm we love. We enjoyed a sharing platter of octopus, ham, tuna pate, anchovies and cheeses which was perfect to... More

My husband and I ate at Konoba Gojava, not once, but twice in our 4 night stay in Hvar it was that good. We found it by accident whilst walking down into town and what a great find it was! The first night my husband had the tuna steak with zucchini and I had the octopus with polenta - both... More

Konoba Gojava is one of my favourite restaurants in Hvar town run by a wonderful Croatian family. The restaurant is very charming (suitable for families, couples, and friends) nestled beside Park Hotel scattered up a picturesque medieval stair well overlooking the sea. Upon arrival you will be greeted with a delicious homemade cherry liqueur and a wonderful team of servers.... More

Konoba Gojava ( "Gojava" - name of the old Hvar district beneath the Napoleon fortress) is a nice little tavern located on the first stairs west of the main square (Clock Tower). It's the perfect place for a quiet romantic candlelight dinner. If you are with friends and looking for a more crowded atmosphere there are tables located on the street. It is a great choice if you are looking for a good
