A beachfront Restaurant where they did not mind at all that we turned up off our little runabout in board shorts and t-shirts. very good and fresh seafood. Menu confusing to the uninitiated as the prices were mostly per 100 grams rather than the price of the meal. the exact price comes after the weighing of the produce. Fabulous spot... More

This is a very elegant restaurant situated right on the harbour of a remote marina about 10 - 15 minutes from Hvar town by boat. In fact we found the short boat ride in he tender from our gulet was the highlight of the evening. The food, both meat and fish available, were perfectly good but not outstanding and the... More

After a 20 minute boat trip over to Palmizana Island, part of the Pakleni Islands, we stopped at Zori for lunch. It has fascinating views of a lovely cove with lots of boats and areas to swim in. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and we sat on the terrace overlooking the cover. The views were spectacular and the service... More

Having read the many reviews about the restaurant, I booked a table before we traveled to HVAR with the delightful Anita by phone. She arranged a lovely table at the waters edge where we enjoyed a Bellini as the sun went down. Kristin the very knowledgable waiter , was extremely helpful in describing the menus and helping pick a gorgeous... More

My husband and I spent the night buoyed in the beautiful bay. Someone from the restaurant came and picked us up at our boat. The elegance of the atmosphere was a nice surprise. There were beautiful flowers, artwork, and tasteful music. Our waiter was very friendly and professional. Our dinners were delicious! My husband had the roasted lamb tenderloin and... More

There are a handful of restaurants in this little cove. Great swimming beach and this restaurant is the one that stands out for casual elegance, service and great food. We had hired a small boat and captain and this is where they arranged lunch. Great grilled langoustine and fish. Lobster available. Excellent wine list. Very special. Pricy but worth it.

Special location on the remote island of Palmizana, Zori faces a pontoon with yachts and sailing boats. You get there from the item her side where transfer boats drop you off after a 5min walk on a cement path. Staff is super friendly and cares about your experience - a rarity around Hvar! Chill atmosphere, great cooking, chocolate soufflé was... More
