I didn't like this place very much. The staff was kind and the terrace in the garden is beautiful. But the food was nothing special, the portions are so small and the prices are very high. Dinner for 4 including 2 appetizers, 1 soup, 4 main courses, 2 desserts with 1 bottle of wine was over 1.000 kn! It's wasn't... More

Set in a lovely courtyard, pleasant staff, very good food and a lovely touch with the live music. Had lamb and veal- both very nice. Complimentary appetiser and after dinner drink really topped off a wonderful night.

We had a very good dinner for eight people. The grilled fish was excellent and prepared in large quantity, service was good and friendly. Nice atmosphere in the open air with local musicians entertaining the guests. We will recommend it.

Lucullus offers a nice atmosphere and friendly hospitality. However, since we are foodies, we mostly care about quality meals. We decided to try this since they offered some dishes that were not of the standard grilled fish or steak offered by virtually all croatian restaurants. The meal started well as they offered complimentary drink and appetizer. The gazpacho and truffle... More

Great service and great food. We received free welcome drinks on arrival, a free starter and a free aperitif - this seemed to be being offered to all guests but it was a really nice touch and we did not expect it as given when we sat down! What we really liked was the atmosphere and ambience of the place,... More

We booked here after the reviews and talking to the hostess who was particularly helpful explaining vegan options. However we should've realised the place wouldn't be that professional when one of the waiters thought it would be a good idea to discuss the 'wonderful boobies' of the hostess with my girlfriend. Then the meal, my Buzarra looked nice but after... More

We stumbled upon Lucullus while walking the streets of Hvar. Wow! were we happy we found it, they had live music playing in the terrace area that made the atmosphere lively, yet not overbearing. The service staff was exceptional, they were beyond helpful with their description of the wines and food items they had on the menu. The food was... More
