We went to San Marco restaurant on our last evening in Hvar, The views over the port are spectacular and not to be missed. The food was good with typical Italian dishes including pizza and pasta as well as fish and normal meats. The service was lacking somewhat in that we kept on having to get the waitress' attention each... More

Nice view, and a really delicious john dory fish dish. Service was a bit slow but that's to be expected in Croatia.

Do your stomach a major favor and stay as far away as possible from this disaster of a restaurant. I don't know who the chef is, but he needs to find a new job. My wife, kids and I were there in August. We ordered Mussels in a broth, 2 T-Bone Steaks, Pizza, Black Risotto and Plain spaghetti. The Steaks... More

My wife and I at here on 29th August for dinner. Having read a swathe of very positive reviews we were extremely underwhelmed. Maybe we were there on an 'off' night but we felt the place lacked ambience,the food was distinctly average and the service was bordering on the poor. There are much better places to eat in Hvar for... More

Our favourite dish was the melon, Parma and mozzarella ! We decided to go back for a second night in a row not just to... More

After reading so many strong reviews. We expected this one to be good. The views and location are amazing, however the majority of the food was average. The toasted bread to start was cold, muscles were predominately empty shells, the chips with the main course were also luke warm and when we sent them back they tasted as if they... More

We visited three times during our holiday in Hvar, each time we had a wonderful meal and were well looked after. I would recommend booking in advance and asking for a table at the edge of the balcony with views over the harbour. Watching the sun go down, seeing all the activity below and just soaking up the Hvar life... More

The restaurant was a great find after a tiring walk with kids in the town. At first, you don't dare to walk in as building looks very posh.The terrace looked very royal so we expected the restaurant to be a bit pricey. Surprisingly it was not. You take the stairs and raise above the crowds to enjoy the beautiful view... More

John Dory meal and a side of Tuscan potatoes... The service, the meal and the wine was one of the best experiences I have had... I would truly recommend this place... Slightly pricey but worth every penny

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.
