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.

A recommendation from our Airbnb host. So glad we acted on it. A fisherman runs this restaurant so go for the fish. Wine excellent too.

We went to Junior for our final night meal as a group of 3 friends. We made sure to book a couple days before as we'd tried earlier in the week but it was fully booked (understandable). They do reservations until 19:30 and then I...believe it becomes walk ins. There's not many tables and there's always a queue waiting for tables so best to book! The service was brilliant. Our server was very nice, enthusiastic and went over any questions we had. The menu is simple and focuses on brilliant sea food (I believe the restaurant is run by a fisherman?). The prices were excellent for what you got. We had the Bruscetta and Octopus salad to start, both of which were brilliant, super fresh. We then the sea food risotto which came out piping hot, a good selection of sea food and the prawn was huge and super meaty. Presentation was excellent. My other friends had the Black Risotto which she said was divine and the sea food pasta which again was excellent. The ambiance was beautiful sat on the street opposite the church and 15th century house. Although it was super busy with a long line of walk ins waiting sat having a drink on the steps of the church opposite, at no point did we feel rushed to vacate the table, even after we'd finished our food which we really really appreciated. Would highly highly recommend Junior and hope some day we can come back!More

We were recommended this restaurant locally and were not disappointed. We waited maybe 20mins for a table whilst sat on the steps opposite having a drink and looking at the menu. Mussels and pasta were fabulous as was the Sea Bream, all matched perfectly with...a bottle of Posip! There was a constant flow of people waiting for a table…no wonder it was great!More

I came here for lunch by myself because it was recommended by my friends. It was great! I ordered the tuna steak and asked for only mushrooms (no peppers or zucchini) and they didn’t kind at all. Very fresh fish! I’d come back!

For sure one of the best restaurants that we went in Hvar. Awesome tasty food, good price and the waiters were funny and helpful. The only tiny bad thing was that we were inside the restaurant and was SO hot there because of the kitchen....But besides it, was awesome. Make a reservation cause the place is small and gets full easily.More

We had lunch at Junior when we arrived in Hvar. So impressed with the food and service we returned tonight for dinner. We chose Seafood pasta and Black Risotto…. Both excellent and great value dishes. Side street setting with lovely atmosphere

Had the prawns with pasta (buzara) which was absolutely amazing. Very popular spot but worth a wait for the quality and price.

A great little restaurant tucked away from the waterside. Delicious food, large portions for teenagers and fantastic welcome. Sit outside as it is too hot in July to sit inside and book ahead for a table. Should have found it earlier in our stay and...visited it moreMore

My family and I were here last year and LOVED everything about it. This year, Hvar was experiencing somewhat smaller crowds than last , largely due to the conversion to Euro and the war in Ukraine. So instead of welcoming back people who spread the...word about this little gem, they gave us what New Yorkers call the “bums rush”. Ordering was not at all a usual Croatian experience where they take pride in everything they serve. It was “Ready?” And then the most unbelievable thing happened. My family loves to play Uno during dinner while waiting for our dishes. This waiter actually said we can’t play because “gambling” is illegal in Croatia and they will get a 10k Euro fine. Complete nonsense my friend and if you’re reading this KNOW that I told every restaurant what a jerk you were , especially the folks over at DVA Ribara (the best restaurant in the island btw) and they all laughed their asses offMore

Good food, great service, reasonable price. Away from the port ( which is a good thing). The seafood pasta dish was excellent, the drunken octopus dish average. Definitely go for the seafood pasta.

Unfortunately me and my friend had a lot of expectations about the restaurant but was really bad. First I texted then asking if they did reservation. They asked me saying yes but only till 7:30. I texted back at 6:45 pm asking if was possible...to go at 7:15. They answered that was possible then we went. When arrived there the waiter started to say that I did a reservation too late and they didn’t have our table, only if we wanted to seat inside the place, in front of the kitchen. We were upset but hungry so we agreed. Shortly thereafter a lady who worked in the restaurant, maybe the owner, arrived and started to scream with the other waiter about reservations. I ordered a shrimp risotto that wasn’t a risotto at all! Was rice with tiny tiny shrimps. My friends pasta also not good. Portion was good also the price to Hvar but we are completely disappointed and sad to be treated like this. To be worst, I live in Croatia and speak a little croatian and could understand what they said.More

We were recommended Junior by our Airbnb be host and we were not disappointed. A family run business tucked along a quiet and beautiful path near the Hvar port. Our server, Slavko, was very warm and kind. The food was outstanding. We shared the tomato...soup, tuna steak and mussels with pasta. All dishes were amazing. We highly recommend this place, it was perfect.More
