LVXOR Café is a place where the history of Split and of the entire world expresses itself in an unusual and picturesque way. It was named after the Egyptian city of Luxor, where the sphinxes, the mythical creatures, originate from. They were brought by the Emperor Diocletian in 305 A.D. to his recently built gigantic Palace situated at the coast of the Adriatic Sea which represents the pearl of the antique architecture with obvious traces of Ancient Egypt. The best preserved sphinx, and there were about thirty in the Palace, originates from the period of Pharaoh Tuthmosis, and was constructed 36 centuries ago. Up to this day, it has been the guardian of the imperial square – Peristil, guarding

Visiting Split and fell across this restaurant. It was fantastic, food superb and staff were extremely nice and helpful. Lovely guitarist playing outside. Food really was exceptional and would certainly visit again if in the area. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Great to drink coffee and watch the world go by under the beady eye of a 3500 year old Egyptian sphinx. Good live music at night but very busy with tourists day and night

Great food and excellent service. No complaints. Food was cooked well and the cocktails were powerful :-) Great atmosphere as they have a guitar player / singer outside in the square. It makes the night amazing!

Tasty food, good knowledge of their wine menu and friendly helpful staff. Had the Cevapcici, the veggie risotto and the Dalmatian potato salad. The risotto could have been creamier but the taste was good. My favourite was the Dalmatian potatoes: simple, refreshing, full of flavour....Been recommended the Korlat Syrah by our waiter and it was indeed rich red, with notes of tobacco, smooth, and lasting.More

I definitely recommend the excellent restaurant, ambiance and the live guitar music were amazing. Restaurant is for pleasant gatherings with friends and families but also you can come by yourself it's just as nice. Food is excellent and worth the price. The staff is friendly...and fun. I will definitely come again.More

After visiting St Dominus Catherdral I sat outside this beautiful restaurant/bar on the steps. There are cushions for customers to sit on. There was a girl playing violin in the square. The atmosphere was wonderful. The setting was breathtaking. Tony was a brilliant waiter who...made me feel so welcome. He was so friendly, kind and extremely good with customers making sure everyone was well cared for. Thank you Tony for making my trip so memorable. I would highly recommend having food and or a drink here to soak in the surrounds in the heart of the Old Town.More

Upon entering there were two waitstaff at the front that attempted to make poor humor with my request for a table for two. I said “I don’t understand the humor may I have a table for two?” We were advised to select our own seats...which we did. I have attached a photo of 4 waiters standing and talking while ignoring the room. Although the room was quite empty. We sat for too long without service. When our waiter came it was acceptable service but not great. Food is average.More

A really relaxed atmosphere with good music, food & cocktails. Sitting outside on the cathedral steps was a really unique experience. Definitely recommend. Whole experience helped by friendly service from Victor. We had pizzas, meat and cheese boards. More snack food than full on restaurant...experience. It was the location that made this a really memorable experienceMore

Best location. Very good service. Live music. Air con, confy chairs, nice decoration inside. BUT food was mediocre-poorly prepared, very basic. 27 euros per person. Fair price for the quality we got.

We walked back to the Lvxor about 730 one evening, found a pair of cushions and one of those little low tables they have and ordered a couple of beers while waiting for the music to start. Yes, the beers were pricey as were the...coffees that followed, but basically you are getting a concert for the price of the drinks. The guitarist started a bit late but he was good and played mostly 70s music starting with Nights in White Satin by the Moody Blues, and when was the last time you listened to someone play that classic well?More

It was a real novelty to sit out on the old steps of the Palace and watch the world go by whilst we had some drinks and cake. The waiter even took some pictures for us. Of course it is busy here, but the sense...of real history is very alluring. No issues with the bill, we went inside to pay by card.More

The location is great and the service from the young guys was good. That’s what gives them the 2 stars. The food is at best average though not expensive. The real issue is that we were charged £36 (330 KR) for 3 glasses of wine....When I complained they said it was the “best” wine. They also claimed it was a 250ml pour when at best it was 175ml. I should know I drink enough! If we were in the UK I would call Trading Standards in the morning, instead I will give them a rubbish review.More

Incredibly rude waiters, honestly the attitude was astounding. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Banged my partner on the head and laughed.
