In my opinion maybe the best place to have dinner in Hvar. We went there 2 times, probably we will be going back. I had the duck breast, the next dat the Wild Boar. Both handled perfectly by the chef. The waiters put on a bit of a show to make their guests feel welcome and appreciated. Because of some... More

We were drawn to this restaurant while having a glass of wine at the wine bar next door. The live guitar music and the atmosphere seemed great so we booked a table for the following day. We were greeted by the hostess, who was very friendly, and got a great waiter who has also genuinely friendly and happy. We were... More

Lucullus was the best meal we had in Hvar. The price is reasonable and the atmosphere is great. The thing that makes the meal the best was the food and the hospitality. They took time to talk through the menu like they really wanted to give you the best of what they had. Then the food itself was amazing. Highly... More

Apparently Lucullus was a Roman emperor, according to the staff at this wonderful restaurant. The restaurant occupies what used to be his house, and we were dining in the servants quarters. Not that you would know it, but it is nice to be given a bit of background info. I don't think I have eaten anywhere else that has been... More

There are many good restaurants in Hvar, but few like Lucullus. Having dined here several times now, I can promise you will find few finer combinations of food, ambience & fun loving, personal service. Dario & the team are amongst the friendliest locals on the island, and I guarantee you will have a night to remember. The house specialty fish... More

Beautiful restaurant with excellent food & super friendly staff. We shared the fish, baked in a wood burning stove. I'm a huge seafood fan and this was up there with the best of them. The staff were incredibly nice & helpful. There was also a guitarist in the restaurant. Seemed a little cheesy at first but he was great!! Really... More

Upon telling friends that we were travelling to Croatia, many of them had useful advice to give us. One piece of useful advice was "the food isn't great". It was useful because it left me wondering how this could be, especially if you like seafood and wine - both items that Croatia has in abundance. The fact is, it's not... More

I am at a loss as to what to say. We arrived at around 14:00 on the island. Smelled something wonderful as we looked for our accommodations, and finally identified this place. Dinner was absolutely wonderful, I'm from Northern California so what do I know; the local cheeses, white wines, and reds where different in such an excellent way. But... More

We had the fish carpaccio and lobster spaghetti which both were great. Very good service with a bit of sparkling and dessert wine on the house and an extra dish. We were very pleased with this place.
