Specialities of the Island
The taste of Hvar!
Good food (or "spiza" as the locals say) is an integral part of the Hvar tradition.
Healthy, light, mostly boiled food (chiefly fish), seasoned with home-made olive oil and a pinch of herbs which grow wild everywhere,
helped down with good wine - this is why the people of Hvar are so healthy and long-lived!
Hvar restaurants offer a wide choice of dishes, from the typical tourist menus to a variety of local specialities.
As you are here, we urge you to taste some of the local specialities: goat cheese in olive oil; very healthy and tasty wild cabbage salad;
Zdrava, lagana, uglavnom kuhana hrana, obogaćena domaćim maslinovim uljem i začinima koji rastu u divljini na cijelom otoku,
uz pomoć dobrog vina - to je razlog zašto Hvarani tako zdravo i dugo žive.
