The courtyard is very lovely under the orange trees. Our dinners were delicious. My wife had lamb and I had sea shell mix. Very nice and a quiet retreat in a busy town.

First thing, it is best to book anywhere you want to eat in Hvar as the place is crawling with people. We had a lovely, the food was reasonably priced and we were both pleased with the food and wine

I can't understand the negative reviews, the food we had was amongst the best in Croatia. We preordered an Octopus Pekka, which was very tasty. The service was top notch and very friendly. The only reasons for not giving it 5 stars is the drinks...More

With so many restaurants from which to choose, we were lucky the sunny afternoon in June during our trip to Croatia and Hvar Island. Our waiter was particularly pleasant and proud of his adopted city (being from a more northern city in Croatia). There were...More

Four of us stumbled on this restaurant whilst exploring Hvar. The courtyard garden is lovely and the food and drink (Tomic white wine highly recommended) was excellent. Robert conducted proceedings with great flair and was very informative. Hvar is not the cheapest place in Croatia,...More

Disappointed. The garden is lovely but that's where it ends unfortunately. The food wasn't that great but the service was invasive. I fancied steak, was then informed I was in Hvar and should have something different. Why they had it on the menu when the...More

Restaurant Palace Paladini is placed at the old ancient part of City of Hvar. We offer fish delicious, meat and vege specialities, greatest wines and champagnes (Dom Perignon/Rose, Crystal, Moet & Chandon...).The palace where you are about to eat belonged to an old noble family from the Hvar called Paladinic (Paladinis - Italian version; de Paladinis - Latin version).Palace de Paladinis, built in renaissance style, is one of the most beautifull and outstanding Hvar palaces, situated in the southern part of the oldest nucleus of the town Hvar below the fortress known as Forto Spagnuolo. The upper palace Paladini was once the residence of Petar Hectorovic. Coat of arms found above the main entrance to the palace, on the family well erected in the garden, on the renaissance basin on the balcony of the palace and on the balustrade of the balcony bares two motives: a royal lily on the upper field and eagle`s wing of Subic family on the lower field.The present-day form of the palace (ground-floor, three upper floors and a monumental balcony - one of the most beautiful in Dalmatia) was designed by Nikola Paladinic, son of Jakov, who fought very bravely in the seabattle between Venetian and Turkish fleet. After the battle the Republic of Venice proclaimed him the knight of St Marc with golden toga.Palaces of Hvar noblemen clearly evidence of economic prosperity and cultural development of the local families in the 15th and 16th century. Furthermore, rich plebeian families always tried to keep step with noblemen which is quite manifest from their residental palaces (Vukasinovic-de Lupis, Garguric) that equal in their beauty even the most famous of noblemen of the town Hvar (Lucic, Paladini, Hectorovic, Gazarovic, Garguric, Vukasinovic...) where not erected during the period of town`s greatest prosperity, but only after the year 1571 when turks burnt the town and 1579 when lightning struck the ammunition warehouse at the town fortress causing a tremendous catastrophy.
