August 4, 2020 – Magic Johnson on Hvar, as the NBA basketball legend visits luxury fish restaurant Gariful after arriving from Split. 

He is one of the biggest names in global sport and his arrival in Croatia has aroused huge media interest, as Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson continued his holiday with friends and family aboard the luxury mega-yacht ‘Aquila.’

Having started his holiday in Split with dinner at Bokeria Kitchen and Wine, the NBA legend headed off to the island of Hvar, Croatia’s premier island, for a dose of fine dining at luxury fish restaurant Gariful.

Gariful posted a number of photos and this message on its Facebook page shortly after Johnson had left the restaurant.

The most charismatic basketball players and the best playmaker of all time visited Gariful Restaurant. We will describe him as a man who has an infectious smile and a killer mentality that made him the leader of one of the best and most attractive NBA teams of all time, the famous Showtime Lakers. Of course, we are talking about Earvin “Magic” Johnson. @magicjohnson

Magic Johnson, thank you for trusting us, and we are looking forward to your coming again because you won us over with your charisma and smile.

Magic Johnson is the latest celebrity to visit the famous fish restaurant, which Giorgio Armani once placed in his top seven restaurants in the world, and to whom Jon Bon Jovi gifted a signed guitar last summer.

The giant star also checked out the famous glass floor of the Hvar restaurant, underneath which there is an aquarium, which is an additional attraction to the excellent seafood specialities. 

Unlike famous YouTuber, Joe Sugg, a few years ago, Johnson did not go for a swim in the tank with a baby shark, a video which you can see below, which has been viewed 4.5 million times, making it the most-viewed video about Hvar ever.
