Expert review of Luna

Creative Mediterranean cuisine meets star-lit skies here in Hvar’s old town.

Luna is magical - a top-floor dining room with an open roof so you can see the starry night sky and the moon. I’ve eaten here many times and I’m always enthusiastic to return. The menu is a little more off-beat than the majority in Hvar, combining classic Mediterranean dishes with local ingredients to produce a few surprises.

Food and drink: 

Fresh fish and seafood predominate here, with some unexpected twists. Try the gazpacho soup with shrimps, monkfish carpaccio, or pasta with pesto and shrimps. Meat-eaters will love the fillet steak with truffles, while those with a sweet tooth should save room for the semifreddo (a semi-frozen mousse).

Recommended dishes: 

I’m not normally a soup person, but here I'd definitely start with the gazpacho with shrimps.

Ambience: 

It's cool, relaxed and fun - the upper-floor dining room has stonewalls decorated with brightly coloured swirly modern paintings, with mellow background music playing at just the right volume. As you go upstairs, you’ll pass the open-plan yellow-tiled kitchen on the first floor, so you know where the food comes from. The ground floor dining room has a wooden beamed ceiling.

Service: 

Expect friendly, professional and relaxed service - they won’t hurry you away once you’ve finished eating.

Location: 

It's in a narrow stone alley one block back from the main square, close to Villa Town Gate.

Price advice: 

Depending on what you order, expect to pay upwards of 500 kuna for a three-course meal for two, with wine.

Tables to book: 

When you arrive, be sure to go up two flights of stairs to reach the top floor - there’s a ground floor dining room too, but the atmosphere isn’t quite the same. If you're making a reservation, ask for a table on the top floor.
