Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our dining experience was nothing short of phenomenal. The combination of outstanding food, top-notch service, and a charming ambience make it a must-visit for anyone looking for an unforgettable dining experience. Hope I can return and explore more of their menu. Still can’t get over...the sweet rakia (I think it was plum) that was served while we are waiting for our table. Absolutely delicious. 😊 P.S. No reservations after 7pm. To secure a spot, calling to join the waiting list is a must. Trust me, it’s entirely worth the effort. 😊More

We had a lovely dinner at Black Pepper and sat in the little garden courtyard in the back. The food was 10/10 as was the service. The seafood risotto was amazing.

One of my favourite meals in Hvar, I highly recommend this place! Location is ideal for the harbour - just a few steps up. The food was simply delicious, I had the truffle pasta to start followed by the sea bass & finished off with...one of the delicious desserts. All of them were wonderful. Great selection of wines too. Staff were lovely especially Aleksandar who made my experience even better with his exemplary service. Definitely worth visiting when on Hvar, you won’t be disappointed.More

By far the best restaurant in Hvar! The gnocchi with lamb was beyond flavorful; the lamb was tender; and, the gnocchi was cooked to perfection. The truffle ravioli was also the best I’ve ever had. All of the different flavors complimented each other perfectly. Not...only was the food fantastic, but the service was great! 10/10 recommend.More

Excellent dinner, attentive service and a good wine selection! Great vibe sitting in the steps outside the restaurant. Obviously a very popular place to dine. Always packed To start a little hummus treat on the house and a raspberry liqueur. The mixed salad, excellent with...arugula and raddichio. The mains, sea bass, simply done but excellent. The Benedetto, a wonderful traditional dish, like a fish stew but creamier and very rich. Awesome! Service was excellent!!More

Food for Instagram. Way too much going on and not executed very well. Most of it not made fresh. Friendly waiter but didn’t ask why main course uneaten as he probably knew already, but lots of rote engagement otherwise. Good Croatian wine recommend though based...on what we’d asked for. I wish we had avoided, much much better places around. Full of mostly American kids wowed by the amount of colours on the plate. Was recommended by our hotel but was the only disappointing meal we had the entire trip. It’s expensive. Truffle oil on nearly everything for some reason. Portions gigantic. Cute setting but then you’re in Hvar, try and find a place that isn’t in a great setting.More

Let’s start on how cozy the place is. There isn’t a view but it is a very cute spot. Marco, our server was EXCELLENT! What an outstanding service, the kindness, the chit chat, the recommendations about Hvar, everything! He was amazing! He recommended wines, he...clearly knew about Croatian wines. We went with his recommendation and oh boy! We were not disappointed! Food was exceptional, we got the burrata for starter, I got octopus and my husband the duck. And for dessert some kind of chocolate cookie? Idk, but it was delicious!!!!! Wonderful place, recommended by our driver!More

5/5 experience! We got a reservation the night before since we already had dinner plans but they do work to get you in last minute! We sat in the back court yard which was nice and quite with fans to keep you cool. Petra was...our server and she was outstanding, hilarious, and very informative on things to do on the island since she is a local born and raised! Food was amazing as well as the grapa :)More

Had such a lovely meal here! Sat on the steps which is just perfect in the beautiful Hvar. Staff were super lovely. Attentive but relaxed. Gorgeous espresso martini! Starters are massive! Absolutely beautiful, but we ordered two starters and one main, thinking we might be...able to follow with tapas later with friends. There was no room! Perfectly full! We had the Tuna Tartare and Croquette, followed by the Lambada. Not a scrap of anything left. The whole experience was just super lovely! Would highly recommend!More

My husband said this was the best meal he’s had in 5 years: tuna appetizer and the sea bass (I think it was called the sea wolf). The bread was also incredible.

I honestly cannot fault this restaurant. We visited in June as a group of 10 for my husbands 40th birthday. I made the booking in person when we stopped in hvar in May and they were only able to seat us at 645. Everything about...this place is just spot on, the service - perfect, we were assigned a waiter who was attentive but not never intrusive, he made sure everything that was served had an explanation of what it was and where it came from. He recommended the wines and organised a cake for the birthday celebrations. I had tuna to start followed by sea bass. The lamb gnocchi was to die for and the duck just sublime. Please do not miss out on this place if you are in hvar. It’s worth every penny!More

We had dinner at Black Pepper in early June and had the most wonderful evening. We were staying in Stari Grad and had come over to Hvar for the afternoon/evening. We had a 7pm reservation as that is the latest they would make one during...the summer season. The restaurant is unique with tables going up the stairs. The menu is very good and the food is delicious. The service was excellent. It has now been over 6 weeks since we were there so I cannot remember our server's name, but he was fantastic! So attentive, engaging, knowledgeable and fun. We looked around and everyone seemed to be having a great night.More

Black Pepper is a little gem tucked away in a side alley away from the main plaza in Hvar. We had heard about this place from a friend and booked it in advance. This was the first restaurant that we visited in Hvar. The food...is fresh, of high quality and made with local ingredients. Our son has multiple allergies and dietary constraints. And the waiter (Kruno) was very helpful and worked with us. A great find!More
