Amazing fresh seafood and quality service. Fresh fish and seafood is caught daily by rhe restaurant's own team. Nice wine list of local croatian wines. Highly recommend.

This was sublime. Home made bread, delicious food, attentive staff in an amazing environment, what more could you want? If you only try one restaurant in Hvar, make sure this is the one. Not cheap, but well worth the money.

Giaxa is situated in the narrow streets of Hvar Town. The menu is very exciting and different. My wife loves the pork medalions. Always perfect. I love the baked lobster dish. The setting is very romantic and the staff is professional. Enjoy.

We liked it so much the first time that we visited a second time in our 4 day stay. The staff are really charming and service excellent. The menu, though smaller in choice than competitors, more than makes up in quality of food. On our...More
