This is the place to have dinner when in Hvar. It's not only the very romantic setting - it's the combination of good food and a very friendly owner. For starter we had the combination of fish appetizers, such as Tuna Tartar (from the belly - very rich in taste) and a specially made 'sausage' Octopus-salad, wow! Our main course... More

Four of us looked in on many restaurants before we chose Lucullus on the basis of having nice small plates and appetizers for a late dinner. We were all thrilled with the choice. Our servers were all warm and attentive, the food was tops, and the place itself was a study in how people in the 14th century built for... More

We visited this restaurant in late summer 2015. While it looks nice outside and the menue reads itself reply tasteful the service was terrible. There were only two other tabeles with guest so we expected to get our food fairly quickly. But after 1 hour we were still waiting and another family entered the restaurant. Shortly after their appearance our... More

We visited Lucullus on our first night in Hvar and we were definitely not disappointed - possibly the best steak I have ever had and at a more than reasonable price! Truly pleasant staff who spoke english very well and were more than willing to help with any questions we had about the menu. I couldn't recommend this restaurant more... More

We accidently found this restaurant while looking for another one and were so glad that we did! The outdoor courtyard was such a pleasant treat and provided a quiet retreat from the hustle of the other locations we had passed by. The food was delicious and more than adequate portions. The complimentary starter course was fantastic and very artfully presented... More
