Konoba Kokot, Dol

This restaurant is rightfully at the top of our list. The family-owned tavern Kokot is located in the village of Dol, near Stari Grad. The large courtyard of the family house, covered with a canopy of green vines, has been transformed into a tavern-restaurant that is full of interesting, authentic details characteristic of the island of Hvar. Children can freely explore the surroundings of the restaurant as the traffic is almost non-existent, and the food is excellent – traditional homemade cuisine. Be sure to try the specialties made from wild boar meat, as this is one of the few restaurants on the island that prepares them. You can park at the playground in Dol or directly at the restaurant itself.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxing and perfect for a family outing, with stunning views of the Pokrivenik bay and the expansive sea.

The highlight of the konoba is the large fireplace in the center, where the hosts prepare exquisite specialties such as grilled fish or peka, but it’s also worth trying their steak.
