There are few words I can find that will do proper justice to the fantastic dining experiences my friends and I had the pleasure of enjoying at the hands of Hvar Chef. Thanks to their exceptional gastronomical talent, creativity, attention to detail and pitch-perfect service, we had the dinner and the brunch of a lifetime at our villa on Hvar. They have an outstanding knowledge of local wines and produce, everything they prepared was in season and prepared fresh in our kitchen ... whilst we were simply left to relax and enjoy ourselves in the garden and by the pool.

Hvar chef was recommended to me by our agent from villashvar.com. I was the organizer of a short holiday for 15 of my friends and was looking for a nice dinner at our rented villa just outside Hvar town. I did the booking with Kristijan via efficient e-mail contact 6 months before our trip. On the day of arrival Kristijan prepared a very nice high quality dinner in three courses and after he finished he cleaned everything. Hvar chef is an excellent choice!

My friends & I have just enjoyed the most amazing week in Jelsa on Hvar Island, celebrating our joint 50th birthdays. We enjoyed many fantastic dining experiences, but the best was definitely left ‘til our last evening on the island when I arranged for Hvar Chef to prepare their Croatian Signature menu for our party of 10 in our private villa. From start to finish their approach was first class - the guys arrived two hours before service to set up the table & prepare everything fresh in our villa kitchen (whilst we were simply left to enjoy the last few hours of afternoon sun around the pool). Appetisers were served at 19.15 - beautifully presented boards of cold meats, cheeses & olives accompanied by a couple of bottles of local Croatian bubbles - we were off to a great start & everyone took their places at the table with huge anticipation. Yvan continued to pair our own selection of wines with each course, but is equally happy to offer a wine service himself. As for the food, WOW, what a talented chef proved to be, treating us to a tasting style menu of tuna tartare with fresh mint, truffle pasta with slow cooked egg yolk (risotto alternative for our gluten free guest) and seared amberjack with crunchy cabbage & citrus emulsion, but the piece de resistance was unanimously the most amazing dark chocolate soufflé infused with lavender! The guys then left the kitchen spotlessly clean like they had never even been there, though the memory of their most amazing service & food will live with us forever! Special thanks to Hvar Chef for such a special evening. Paul & friends

Impeccable service - attentive but not intrusive. We enjoyed a wonderful dining during our visit to Hvar last week. The team is amazing, especially as they were able to cater to us , all 15 being vegetarian. Over all the food was - original, local, inventive, magical and DELICIOUS!

Absolutely delicious food and excellent service! The best way to experience the local flavours of Hvar and Croatia. We were a groups of 11 and after the first dinner were so impressed that we decided to have them back for our last dinner to end our trip. A trip to Hvar would not be complete without the brilliant guys at HvarChef... they will create an unforgettable meal and evening. Cannot recommend these guys enough! Very impressed! Thank you Hvar Chef !

We hired Hvar Chef for a hen party and it was without a doubt the highlight of the holiday. Hvar Chef took care of absolutely everything so we could relax and enjoy the evening - which was very easy to do! The food was absolutely incredible and so well presented. We opted for the wine pairings as well which we would highly recommend as they were all very well chosen and explained. One of the things we were most impressed with was the service as it was perfectly balanced - very attentive (glasses always topped up!) but not intrusive at all, and allowed us time to enjoy the evening as a group. This was truly a perfect evening which we will remember for a very long time. Don’t hesitate, just book it! Thank you Hvar Chef.
