Found this place accidentally, it looked very nice, but all the tables were busy, so we came there the next day. The waiter looked very friendly. We ordered some food and began to wait. After more than an hour asked a waiter when will we get something to eat. He looked very aggressive at this moment and said "this is a restaurant, not a fast food". We asked once more, how long should we wait and he said "I'll give you bill for the Pepsi and I don't want to see you here anymore". So we left that awful place hungry and our evening was completely wasted.
Don't visit this place, there is a possibility that the same story will happen to you.

Lovely restaurant - nice terrace, good ambiance, friendly service, and great food! Would definitely recommend having dinner at this place. Make sure you order some fish (fresh) or sea food!

My husband and I visited this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. We stopped at the restaurant for drinks it had a lovely atmosphere and the wine was delicious. After our drinks we walked around to have a look what other places we could eat, but decided to go back to hrpina. The restaurant was busy and we got a table but they filled up fast. We decided within about 5 mins what we wanted. A table that arrived after us got served first which was a little annoying. We placed our order at 8.40pm. Roll on an hour later... the couple who got served before us had their food and were paying for the bill. When it got to 10pm my husband asked the waiter.. where was our food? He replied in a moment. 10mins later he then came back out said quiet aggressively. That we arrived between 9-10, it is my home, this is not fast food. He then removed the stuff off the table then told us to leave. It was extremely rude and unprofessional behaviour. He should not wait tables if he cannot work under pressure. How does it take so long to cook a steak. Why did he not keep us informed of the delay? He didnt even checj in us once to offer more drink!
It ruined our entire evening.

Hrpina is well located and have a very nice and charming appearance. We came with a very positive expectations, and decided to order seafood and scampi. It was disappointing to find that crayfish was served instead of scampi. My wife was told that she must eat it with her fingers. First negative issue; rather obvious that you can't use your fingers on very hot crayfish. So knife and fork had to be used of course. No guidance at all from the waiter of how to handle this after a remark from my wife that this was very difficult to eat. Second negative issue: we had ordered scampi, not crayfish. We decided not to push that the delivery was wrong; in retrospect we should have asked for a new and correct dish, but we just wanted to be polite. My wife gave up the whole project, and couldn't continue. Third negative issue: only comment from the rather arrogant waiter was: well, when you eat seafood you will still be hungry. Wow.

My grilled seabass was ok, but not more. Forth negative issue: The spinache was cold, and the potatoes tasted not good.

The meal was rather spoiled, and we wanted to pay our bill and just leave. We asked to pay. Nothing happened. Fifth negative issue: we had to repeat twice our wish to pay, and waited for 20 minutes before the waiter found it possible to present our bill.

Stay off this restaurant - the service is poor, and you don't get value for money. Sorry.

This was our fourth evening in Croatia and definitely our best meal so far! We found Hrpina after about half an hour of searching for another restaurant. It was one of those "I give up, let's just go into the next restaurant that we see" kind of evenings. We were impressed by the food. Hrpina is very close to the waterfront, so we expected standard tourist fare. But as another reviewer mentioned, their beef and pork specialties had great flavor and were both exceeding tender. Service was exceptionally friendly.
