Zori Restaurant, set on the tiny idyllic island of Palmizana off the larger island of Hvar, is our favorite spot in the region for one of the best meals of your life. Taking a short speedboat ride from the harbor of Hvar through the glistening Adriatic waters, you arrive to a chic and intimate spot where food and hospitality is the focus, and the priority is you.
A family-owned operation, Chef Iva Tomlinovic helms the kitchen and churns out some of the most delicious Mediterranean food you’ll ever eat. Sitting down at the table, you can’t help but be taken by the gorgeous pink and orange sunset, all reflected in an Aperol spritz brought to you by your waiter. The menu is promptly delivered and, soon, the tough choice of selecting something from a list of incredible options begins.
The service at Zori is stellar. There isn’t a moment where you’re not looked after, from the appetizers to main courses, dessert and coffee. Would you like pasta with Croatian truffles? No problem. Grilled Adriatic tuna wth fresh vegetable from local suppliers, of course! There isn’t a bad choice here.
The food exemplifies the best of the Adriatic coast, Croatian cuisine with international influences. The atmosphere is outstanding and the mood – perfect. For anyone visiting Hvar, you absolutely cannot miss Zori. It would be a very big mistake.
