The only good thing is the restaurant has a good view. We were dissapointed when it comes to food itself. Not cooked enough and I must add, the waiters were slopy. Not my recomendation, specialy cause is too expensive for that kind of service.

We ate dinner here and sat up on the terrace overlooking the harbour. Wonderful view. The menu was typical Italian fare but the food was vey tasty. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. Very friendly staff and excellent service.

The tomato sauce that goes with the pasta was to sweet. The chicken was not cooked properly, with this we could see that the chef must have rushed. Other than that the rest of the food was good.

Welcome to San Marco Restaurant & Lounge. Here you can enjoy a delicious Italian cuisine with exceptional Dalmatian touch.Being one of the most grandiose in the Adriatic, San Marco's beautifully ornamented terrace floats above the famous Pjaca, which is second in size only to the Piazza San Marco in Venice. A combination of unique Venetian architecture, starry nights and soft sounds of music will put a profound smile on your face and a subtle swing in your step. Throw-in fine Italian cuisine and the soft glow of yachts in the bay, and the state of bliss may well be irreversible.San Marco Restaurant is Hvar’s premiere venue for unforgettable wedding celebrations, dinners/lunches for groups, events.
