We absolutely loved our time in Hvar, a beautiful Croatian Island that should definitely be part of your Croatia Itinerary. Eating in Hvar is full of different experiences, from eating in a little street, to having ice cream along the Riva, to having seafood right by the beach on one of the beautiful islands off Hvar. So where to eat in Hvar? Here are our favourite picks…
Fig Cafe Bar
Fig Cafe Bar is healthy and delicious and you will be tempted to come back here for every meal. After you walk down a few small streets you will find a small restaurant with a few tables and chairs out the front. I loved the food here! I had a grilled peach, cheese and rocket salad and it was one of the best salads I’ve ever had. I also had some of Chris’s Mexican pulled pork with sour cream and flat bread which was equally delicious. This is definitely one I can’t wait to return to. My pick for where to eat in Hvar for a fresh, healthy and delicious meal.

Every day from 10 AM to 10 PM
I’m always dubious of restaurants that are number one on Tripadvisor, but this restaurant came so well reviewed everywhere that we had to try. Dalmatino is truly deserving of all the praise and is in no way a tourist trap, although there will be a lot of tourists there. Here we sat outside in the laneway and you could still enjoy the energy of Hvar. I had the black gnocchi with shrimp and truffle and it was so delicious, something you should definitely order if you go. Chris had the tuna which was also so good. The service here was so friendly and relaxed. This is my pick for where to eat in Hvar for a nice restaurant dinner with excellent food and service.

Being so close to the beautiful ocean you start to crave seafood. Zori is actually on Palmizana, one of the Pakleni Islands, about a 20 minute boat ride from Hvar. Visiting the Pakleni Islands was one of my favourite things to do in Hvar, and eating at Zori definitely topped it off. I’m not sure you could get a better location to eat a delicious seafood meal than right on the beach with nothing but blue water and the gorgeous island in front of you. Although I enjoy some seafood, I’m in no way a seafood fanatic, but this meal was one of my favourites of the year.
The restaurant looks quite fancy, but as soon as you’re seated you feel at ease as the service is so friendly. I had tuna with sesame crust and rice and Chris had a sea bass fillet with martini sauce and potatoes. We went for lunch so we could see the view and enjoy the islands and beach. Zori is my pick for where to eat in Hvar for excellent location, seafood and special occasion.

Green Goodness Hvar
This tiny little shop is great if you’re feeling in need for some healthy options. They have juices and smoothies which are absolutely delicious and really filling, as well as a small healthy food menu.
Feeling like dessert? Nonica have a small bakery where you can get your cake fix. They also have a small seating area out the front but it can get busy.

Icy Bar Hvar
Located along the Hvar Riva right near all the gigantic yachts and beautiful ocean, is there a more perfect place to take an ice cream break? It’s ice cream lives up to the location because it’s so so delicious. We tried the peanut and toffee ice cream and peach sorbet, all amazing.
Central Park Club
Central Park club is a restaurant and live music venue but we just went here to try some Croatian wine. It was such a lovely atmosphere, sitting on a cushion on the steps whilst music played below.

A chain bakery in Croatia but perfect for those times you just don’t feel like a big meal or going to a restaurant. Come here for a bakery snack, slice of pizza or some Burek.
