Description: Opened in 1989, Macondo is a restaurant with a long tradition. Located in a picturesque stone street in the old part of town within the town walls, it offers an authentic Mediterranean experience. The restaurant's name is inspired by the novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez, which earned him the Nobel prize in literature in 1982. We even named one of our dishes "Big Mama" after one of the dominant female characters from the novel. Thanks to its team and excellent gastronomical foundations, Macondo's story has been evolving for many years and the restaurant is establishing itself as one of must-see places on the Hvar culinary scene.

We came for lunch after a local recommendation. We had fresh grilled fish and lovely wine. The food and service was impeccable- so much so that we came back for dinner! A lovely atmosphere, truly delicious, fresh seafood and wonderful service. Definitely add it to your 'must eat' list!

Best dinner in Hvar, food is tasty and seafood is fresh and service is excellent. We had all the chef recommendations which included mussels and clams then lobster with pasta with white wine and garlic.

We were brought here by locals we met for the best seafood on the island. The ambience of the restaurant is absolutely amazing for a quiet dinner but as soon as the food showed up nothing else mattered. This was by far the best seafood we've had. The service was amazing and filled with sarcastic jokes. They even showed us how to eat fish properly in Havr which is apparently covered in olive oil and using fingers until only fish bone is left. If you are open to trying new things, I highly recommend talking to them and letting them choose the meals

I was in Macondo , and had a amazing fish. Fresh, full of favor and healthy. Was so good that I returned in the other night to have the same dish . I think the name was gregada of fish.
The place is not fancy, But serves real good food. The seafood past was great as well.

Stopped on a whim for a quick lunch and something to drink. We chose to eat just an entree each as we were not that hungry. Food was outstanding. Want cheap but worth it.
