Recommends: Food & Drink in Hvar

Whilst this year marks only the second year of FOR Festival, rest assured we spent our time on the island in 2013 wisely - sampling all of the many delights the island has to offer. Stay with us over the coming weeks as we share our tips for getting the best out of your Croatian vacation - from meals, to sunset drinks, to day activities on Hvar and beyond.

Read on for some restaurant picks from our staff...

Up an enchanting cobbled alleyway above Hvar Town you'll find Luna. Get the traditional Hvar fish stew, called gregada, and a bottle of local wine, whilst the charming staff give you local island tips.

Paladini Giardino Terrasse in Hvar Town, with its enchanting garden terrace and incredibly fresh octopus, shrimp, and fish, is good for large groups or a romantic interlude. It's also conveniently located just steps from the Palace Hotel, Hvar Town, and the dock from which you catch a boat to carpe diem Beach, the location of FOR's late night parties.

Looking for a restaurant with a sea view? Head to Panorama Restaurant high on the hill above Hvar Town. Hope that you are there on a day in which they've roasted a whole lamb, which you eat with your hands (utensils are optional here!) as you look out across one of the best views in Hvar. Panoroma is just a 5 minute walk from the luxurious Amfora Hotel.
