What was there not to like about Lucullus...? Live music in a rustic courtyard setting, attentive waiting staff, great food and to top it off a glass of free procecco! The truffle pasts is a must!

Incredible overpriced, good food, nice restaurant, but nothing can justify selling fish for price more than 10 times bigger from what they paid.

Expensive. Very poor value for money. Suspect you were subsidising the guitar player. Minimilistic bowl of soup - a disgrace.

My wife and I started the evening at a wine bar without any dinner plans on our first night in Hvar town on June 9. We asked the wine bar owner about a restaurant recommendations and 5 minutes later, Stipe walked up to us from his Lucullus restaurant located on the same street, introduced himself, talked about the restaruant and...

Located in the Hotel Nora, Lucullus is a lovely spot with great foods and relaxed service. We had a delightful evening and enjoyed tuna tartare, sea bass, wild boar with lavender gnocchi and good local wine.

We had a very enjoyable meal with Dario and Co. including the wild boar with lavendar gnocchi, which was excellent, the monkfish stew, very good, along with a Plame wine, good with a bit of time to open up. Like many of the reviews, the food is not the "best food of all time," but it is a very excellent... More

The vibe of this place is very mediterranean, a walled inner court right off a narrow street 50 meters upstairs from a central plaza. The service and grappa are much better than food, though, but the presentation of dishes is excellent, and ambience is right for either romantic or friendly casual dinner. In nutshell, it will more probably quench your... More

Located on one of the narrow streets in the old town, Lucullus was a little difficult to find. The outside terrace was cozy and great for dining. It did not overlook the harbor as some other reviews has mentioned. Recipes were Croatian and the octopus salad, cuttlefish risotto and shrimp with grilled vegetables were excellent. The local white wine recommended... More
