Food and drink
Mr Matković prides himself on offering traditional home cooking, served in generous portions. So you can expect local specialities such as brudet (fish stew) served with polenta; whole fresh fish baked in a brick wood-burning oven with potatoes, capers and white wine; and roast lamb served with tomato and caper sauce. All of which certainly warrant a carafe of house wine, red or white, depending on what you’re eating.
The menu changes at a whim so ask your waiter what’s good that day.
It's in a 17th-century stone building with a lovely long narrow walled terrace out front, so you can’t really go wrong if you sit outside. On chilly days, you’ll eat at heavy wooden tables and benches in the ground floor dining room.
The waiters are welcoming and friendly, and knowledgeable about the island and its food and wine.
It's in a narrow stone alley one block back from the main square, in pedestrian-only Hvar Town.
Depending on what you choose, expect to pay anything upwards of 300 kuna for a two-course meal with house wine for two people. Remember that fresh fish is priced by the kilo, and can work out expensive.
