In the village of Milna, 6km (4 miles) east of Hvar Town, this enchanting eatery is set in a lush garden where the owner grows his own tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, arugula, and fresh herbs. Even the bread, wine, and olive oil are homemade. Order a carafe of white wine and a platter of seafood appetizers, which includes swordfish and tuna carpaccio, octopus salad, fish pâté, olives, and samphire (a coastal green). Tables are set out on a stone terrace beneath olive trees and the experience here is truly authentic and totally unforgettable.
