Description: 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

“Great Family Run Restaurant!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

The location of this restaurant is just up from the main square by the port so you'd expect average "touristy" food. To our very pleasant surprise we found it to be the complete opposite. It is a family run business and even a lot of the ingredients are grown in their mothers garden.

The service is a little slow but you're on holiday so why rush and that way you know you're getting freshly cooked food, nothing prepared.
Our first night I ordered a great fillet steak with their special home cut oven fries and my wife got the fillet of sea bass which came with grilled veg. Both were done over a wood flame and were excellent.

The setting is cute and quite romantic on the stairs up from the port.
We don't usually eat at the same place twice while away as we like to try new places but we enjoyed the whole experience so much we went back for our last night in Hvar.
The lady who runs it recognised us and was so lovely and spoilt us. She made time to come chat and gave us two glasses of local brandy on them.

I definitely recommend as one of the best places to eat dinner at in Hvar!

“Good setting, slow service!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We ate in this restaurant after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. The setting is cute with a nice atmosphere, and they had live guitar music which added to the ambience. We had reserved a table, which was on the steps at the front of the restaurant. The food was slightly better then average, but the service was lousy. We had to ask numerous times for drinks and the bill among other things. Unfortunately this ruined things for us do we wouldn't go back because of this.

“Favourite restaurant in Hvar”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

It was so good we visited twice, we both agreed it was our favourite dining experience.
Set in the beautiful town steps on candlelit tables looking towards the harbour.
It's the perfect romantic setting to take some time and enjoy the Dalmatian pace of life.

Danka and her husband (owners) are so welcoming, taking time to go through the menu and point out their favourite local home cooked dishes.

We tried the lot- Buzara, Gregada, Brodetto, and Black Risotto to name a few.
All topped off with 'drunken figs' & a few glasses of wine..

Great value for such a wonderful experience.
A must visit if you're heading to Hvar!
