We ate at Monego our first night in Hvar. Very rustic vibe; the drying hams hanging from the ceiling only added to the setting. The food was very good however they do not take credit cards. We were encouraged to stay by the waiter, which I'm glad we did...after dinner my husband walked a few blocks to an ATM.

The restaurant is adjacent to the owner's residence, with some significant historical perspective which adds to the charm of the locale. There is indoor and outdoor seating, different in themselves, both simple but inviting.

The food choices vary with the catch of the day, the available meats and vegetables, however the range of the Chef permits each dish to be tasty. Some unexpected options, like shark, may be available from time to time. Mussels, octopus, dorada, veal are staples, all savory, well seasoned.

The service is excellent. Attentive, faster than in most places but never overwhelming or pushy. If one strikes a conversation the level of attention even increases. We were lucky to have the Chef and owner join us for rakia at the end of the meal, to hear stories and philosophies, which made our entire experience a wonderful one.

Our favourite meal on a two week trip in Croatia. Beautiful home cooked fresh Dalmatian food and wonderful friendly service. I also loved the ambience and decoration of the restaurant very cosy and quaint.

So good we think we shall visit on our last night in Hvar.

Amazing food and great staff. The rustic decor in the centuries-old house turned family restaurant provides excellent ambiance. The gnocchi is fantastic as is the charcuterie plate. They do not take credit cards, but it's worth the effort to take out Kuna for this gem. The hand-picked lavender bundle on our way out speaks to the personal warmth we felt from the owners and staff during our visit.

You will find this restaurant in the stairs up towards the fort from the main square. Book ahead as we had a 40 minute wait at 2100, but well worth the wait!

The waiters were very attentive and helped with food choices, great atmosphere inside the intimate stone restaurant.

You must try the fisherman's plate to share as a starter. The octopus was superb, as well as the shark, and the other fish on the plate. Although we shared this between two, this would be ample for 3 maybe even 4 people.

For main courses we had the beef with Red wine sauce with gnocchi, which was good, especially the pasta. However, the hake (chef's secret) was the best fish I have had! Which resulted in total food envy as I had the beef!

Get the house white wine too, as that was brilliant. In total we paid 350Kn for a starter , two mains and a litre of house wine. You must go here, you will not regret it!
