Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.


Café Pjaca

It is impossible not to notice Café Pjaca, located in the main square of Hvar. Café Pjaca combines local specialties with modern culinary style and is the perfect place to stop off for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or any time in between. Whether you order a cappuccino or a cocktail, you’ll think it’s a bargain because the view from the terrace – arguably the best people watching spot in Hvar - is complimentary.

Palaca de Paladini

One of the best features of Palaca de Paladini is the setting – a beautiful garden with stone walls, orange trees and blooming lavender. It specialises in seafood and Dalmation classic dishes. The whole grilled fish is delightful and will melt in your mouth.

what we think

Once you have been to Hvar, you won’t want to tell anyone about it. Not because you didn’t love it, but because you will want it to be just as perfect next time you go back, and not spoiled by unyielding crowds. It is the sunniest of the Croatian islands – perfect for soaking up the rays on a private pontoon, where the only obstruction to the picture perfect view of the Adriatic may be the plush white organza curtains on your king size day-bed. For a change of scenery, take a ride on a small motor boat to one of the surrounding islands but make sure you’re back in time for the DJ session to accompany your cocktail while the sun sets. Spend the evenings wandering the charming tiny streets and pause only to pull up a cushion at one of the hole-in-the-wall bars. Hvar is cool without trying too hard. Great views, luxury hotels and a hip crowd makes Hvar worth discovering, before the rest of the hedonist world does.
