I went here based on TA reviews, my expectations were high and they met them. I was looking for real authentic food for this area of Dalmatian archipelago and Croatia so what are you going to eat than perfectly cooked fish prepared in a traditional way... completed with amazing local white wine that friendly waiter recommended. Hidden from hustle and... More

This little restaurant tucked in behind the front looks like it is used by the locals. The food was very good and below average cost. It looked like Mum cooked and Junior served. There were only the two of us and there was a big match on the TV but the sound was turned down and one or the other... More

My friend and I were passing through this little charming street and decided to have a dinner at this lovely restaurant. We were greeted by friendly waiter Marija, she was very knowledgeable about menu and helpful deciding what to choose to eat. We had black risotto completed with red wine which is definitely one of the best we ever had.... More

Did a search and stumbled upon this place which was close to the apartment I was staying. Had the seafood risotto which I was quite happy about; it had a fair amount of mussels and squid and also very pretty looking. Quite tasty! The place itself is simple, just a family own business. Good value for good local fare especially... More

I had the most amazing Langoustine in Buzara sauce here, possibly the best thing I have ever eaten! On top of that the service is great and it is very good value. Much less pretentious than some of the restaurants in Hvar but possibly the best food you will find.

The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. The staff is top professional. And a great feature is, that the desserts come from the cake shop next door.

Set in a quieter back street, Junior is a small restaurant with a varied menu. The service was good, we were given lots of bread free of charge. I had the seafood pasta which was really tasty with lots of mussels and cuttle fish. My partner had the shrimp risotto and was a bit disappointed, the shrimp were very small... More

Restaurant "Junior" is a family run restaurant in the old town centre. We serve local and organically produced food. My grandma, the owner, stil cooks the food with her secret recipes and my father,her son, provides the restaurant with the fresh fish that he caught on the very same day. "Junior" is a great restaurant if you'd like to taste traditional dishes and to experience truly local Hvar atmosphere.
