The Lucullus is the only restaurant that I have experienced with live tasteful music. The hostess is lovely and the waiter was full of fun and energy which raised my energy levels. They bring out a glass of champagne then a light starter which you pay for the alcohol. Our mains were delicious I had the veal and my partner... More

I'm a restaurant manager in London and my mate is a head chef in London also. We were thoroughly impressed by the passion and attention to every detail shown during are evening here. The food on top of this was outstanding, local, fresh and traditional. I will definitely be coming back as soon as I visit hvar again.

The food id delicious. The wine very well chosen and of high quality. But the best are the staff and it's owner. They offer a very special and unique service. You don't go just to Lucullus to eat but also to have a lot of fun and enjoy your time. I recommend this place highly to anybody who goes to... More

We had a reservation for 2 in the second round, we were the second in the list and the owner decided to cancel our reservation to accommodate a group of "regular good clients". A shame. The receptionist looked for a reservation for us I the restaurant in front, however it wasn't what we were looking for.

We came here just by chance as it seemed to have a nice ambience and the food sounded nice. All the food was great, including all the complimentary items. However, we were completely amazed by the incredibly delicious mushroom truffle sauce pasta, we strongly recommend it! We wish we had just ordered several times this dish. Great service and friendly... More
