Amongst the best steak I've eaten. Perfectly made. This is a must do for people who want to be a little away from the crowded square, and looking for great dinner. Ambience is just awesome! They also played some classic CCR so I felt at home the moment I entered!

We were looking for somewhere away from the crowds to have dinner. Stumbled across Lesina. Set in a beautiful courtyard, it had a wonderful atmosphere. The service was good and food delicious. We had the steak and scampi. Best prawns I've had in a long time and apparently the steak was incredible. Definitely worth a visit. I also loved watching... More

This Paradise Garden is the best kept secret of Hvar. A family restaurant where you can feel a home,warm atmosphere and eat great food and all for a very good price. Food is stored in the traditional way, the portions are huge, juicy and they use its own olive oil-this is not so common believe me- Hvar`s olive oil is... More

Tucked down a side street, this charming restaurant is set around a private courtyard and provides a welcome change from the bustle of the main square and surrounding streets. We found Lesina by accident while looking for a restaurant from our guide book, but were so impressed that we returned a few nights' later for our wedding anniversary dinner. The... More

Sometimes a bit hidden place might be a great choice. Lesina in deffinitelly not a posh spot of Hvar, but we found it as a real oasis of great Dalmatian food. You have to love their terrace and the food was really tasty. We also loved the fact they have their own parking space.

Great mussels and fries, fried seafood platter with calamari, shrimp, and small fishes. The service was o.k.--we are surprised by the negative reviews for this restaurant. In some ways better food than the more highly rated options that we tried.
