    This place is one of my personal favourites in Dalmatia. If you are looking for a genuine Dalmatian culinary experience in Hvar, Konoba Menego is the place to be. Great atmosphere, good food. What else do you need?

    Favorite Dish: The real speciality of this konoba is "pijane smokve", drunken figs: almond inside a fig, soaked in rakija. See the pictures!

    09/05 - The food is still reflects good quality and flavor. New item this year - stuffed peppers. Dinko spoiled me my first year with his marinated anchovies - though sadly he has not repeated the dish exactely but still serve tasty variations. My friend didn't warm up to the place or food - he thought everything was pickled (marinated I said) and the prust hanging from the rafters smelled a bit musty (I didn't smell anything). The wine once again had a certain yeast/bread like quality to it - very unique.

    09/04 - Dinko is still serving up great food - the slovenia sausage was spicy and flavorful, a different spin on the marinated anchovies, locally produced goat cheese and honey. But the most remarkable was the house wines, especially the white - his wife's family has a vineyard on St. Klement. Don't forget to sign the world atlas.

    09/03 - This restaurant only serves what I would call starters (almost tapas size portions). The care, attention and pride of their products is obvious - almost everything I had was superb. Marinated anchovies, Pag cheese, octopus salad (with chick peas mixed in adding a nice contrast of textures), dalmation ham (smooth and buttery), dalmation bacon ( a bit thicker and chewier), the house wine, figs stuffed with almonds and soaked in spirits, the orange and walnut liquors - excellent. The only thing that failed to win me over was the stuffed bread (almost like a stuffed foccia).
