On visiting Bacchus we were subject to, frankly, a pathetic level of customer service. We could hear the red-headed waitress brand us 'a couple of losers' to another waiter. She was obnoxiously aggressive towards us from the greeting, even pathetically ordering her subordinate to visit our table to make snide remarks. The food wasn't much better. A soggy burger bun...

The restaurant has a beautiful situation in Palmižana harbour. It is at the waterfront with own entrance from the sea. The food however was not the same quality. Though there was a lot of it. The chairs were low, so we really felt as kids sitting by a too high table facing far too large portions.

After a whole day of exploring the Adriatic we were dropped of at Bacchus before heading back to Hvar. It certainly has an amazing view and their famous main dish "octopus" comes beautifully presented and the taste is quite alright. The bruchetta was a bit odd, it was all cheese and just a few pieces of tomato. The lemon tart... More

Not an obvious walk from the Palmizana marina but worth the effort. Attentive service and good food. Seafood starter for four was a real winner. Squid, sea bass, fillet steak and fried fish main courses were all rated very highly by our party. Schnapps on the house rounded off a very satisfactory evening.

We took the tour to the caves and they booked a table for us in Bacchus. The place and deco are beautiful. We had two hours to stay in Palmizana including lunch time. From the moment we sat down until we finally got the check a good 1.20hs went by. We could not enjoy the beach. The restaurant was not... More

Every visit to this restaurant confirms first impression - that you'll eat well (again and again). The best fresh food, excellent fish, daily catch, perfectly finished "black" risotto (and it's not so easy to do), delicious olive oil, heavenly tasty desserts... That was the case this summer, again. The son of the owner led us through the evening and we... More

Visited here for lunch. My shrimp risotto was pleasant but quite a small portion and very salty. However some of the other food being served did look very good. The location however is lovely with views over beach and into the bay.

We visit today this restaurant. The seafood was fresh, cooked simply and tasty. We order the fish, scampi and calamari. For 2. It was enough, tasty good. One of the Best food we had so far, in Croatia. Special mention....the lemon cake....I dont have sweet tooth, but it was really good. Resonable prices.

We stopped in Palmizana and jumped into this restaurant for lunch. The tables are set in a shady olive grove looking out over the harbour - perfect for cooling off. The food was deliciously fresh, the grilled and baked squid was very tasty and the octopus salad very refreshing. Much cheaper than other options in the harbour. One slight disappointment... More
