Great food, great service. Very friendly staff! We really enjoyed traditional fish food, which was cooked to perfection. Also the restaurant is pleasently small, which allows for a private and charming environment.
Congratulations to the chef and staff!

Stumbled on this restaurant whilst trying to avoid the hvar crowds. Warmly welcomed and excellent service throughout from knowledgeable and amusing waiter. Lots of interesting things on the menu and yes it would be cheaper to get a pizza elsewhere but it the mains were beautifully cooked and tasted great. Relaxed atmosphere and it was nice to be out of the hustle for a while.

The sea was angry that day and the golden shell delivered a warm homely meal after a long day of travel. The staff are friendly and the food has a traditional flavour that matches the family run nature of the restaurant. Would recommend the fish dishes and the gnocci. The setting is romantic with mostly tables for two and rock walls overgrown with ivy. The little extras in the bathrooms like the earbuds are a nice touch.

Maybe we picked poorly from there menu but the food wasn't very nice and weird music but very polite waiter. Our worst meal in hvar but thankfully not our last.

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant as one of his favorites and we made a reservation. What a find! The ambience is quiet, relaxing and romantic. The night we were there, a young couple from Ireland was having their wedding rehearsal dinner there, which added to the romantic vibe for us. We put ourselves in the very capable hands of the chef and ordered the four course chef's menu. As a vegetarian, I am often an afterthought and am not offered very interesting food. That was certainly not the case here! My husband and I had completely different menus and each of us savored every single bite. It's easy to see why the chef here has won so many awards and has earned so much recognition. In addition to the delicious food, our server was personable and professional and explained every item we were served and also recommend the perfect wine to accompany our meal. On of the best dining experiences ever!
