Phenomenal food!

If you are seeking authentic, fresh Croatian food this restaurant is well worth a visit! Came here after a raving recommendation from a friend, there was a group of about 10 of us. Staff were super accommodating, and did everything to make our experience one to remember. The waiter recommended us... read more

The waiter pushed us to an expensive meal.My wife wanted sea bass but was told the fish was for 2 and I relented and ordered the fish with her. The next table ordered after us and got the sea bass for one. The fish was just okay and very expensive.There are much better restaurants on the island and i would... More

The map on Tripadvisor is DEAD WRONG! So we ended up going a different place. Would not recommend people roaming around where the map tells U to.

We arrived slightly before the restaurant opened at 6pm. The hostess said they were booked except for at 6pm or after 10pm. So we reserved a table at 6 and went for a walk. When we arrived right at 6pm, we were greeted by the friendly staff and given a glass of prosecco (excellent!) each. Then they brought out a... More

This place was gorgeous - as soon as we sat down our waiter arrived with a glass of house prosecco for us - so good we ended up ordering a bottle. The fish here is incredible - the chef filleted it in front of us which is always such a nice touch. My compliments go out to the live music... More

Fun dining experience if you are not in a rush. Waiters are fun and entertaining, great food. Usually get some kind of chefs offering before your meal. Live entertainment and great spot to dine with friends. Scampi was fantastic as was the cheese plate. Call ahead or visit earlier in the day to make reservations. Best after 9 pm. when... More

What a delightful dinner we had at Lucullus. While the menu is not huge, it was difficult to choose what to have as everything sounded amazing. We shared the tuna tartare and cheese platter for entree, and for Mains we had veal with polenta, pork with marinated veggies and duck sitting on a bed of tagliatelle with truffle oil (there...

Without doubt this has been the best meal we have had in Croatia and one of the best in Europe anywhere. We have eaten at a number of Michelin starred restaurants and the service, quality, ambience and overall nature and setting beat most of those. A welcome prosecco on arrival, an explanation of the menu by the owner, a good... More

The warm welcome from the attentive staff followed by the complementary glass of champagne and small dish of proscuttio ham and cheese with salad set the tone to what was to become one of the best dining experiences I've had the pleasure of in Europe. The pasta with truffle, beef carpaccio, beefsteak and wild boar were delicious. Highly recommend and... More
