How lucky to sit next to the ruins of an ancient city and dine. A good menu choice, food presented nicely and tasted good. Generous serves. Sitting outside with a busker singing and providing background music, people watching, sipping beer, a wonderful way to watch the sun go down.

I have already stated my opinion about this restaurant and complained about the prices there. Just to mention this here, I'm visiting Split every year as my parents are living here, means I know exactly about the prices in Split. Last time I was here, we paid 70 kunas (10 Euros) for a little (0,25 l) bottle of croatian wine... More

We sat here and had a drink and some finger food our first night and loved the atmosphere of sitting in the old palace and listening to live music. Beers were not cheap, 6-7 USD if I recall. One thing that bothered me is that the Croatians were given a cheaper price than the non-croatian tourists. We heard from others... More

We sat on the steps around the church where the staff will wait on you and had wine and some appetizers. Nice service and tasty sncks and the price was right. Fun way to watch the people.

The food is average and sufficient, but the views are really what sets this place apart. You can sit among the ruins and experience history while enjoying breakfast, coffee, or afternoon drinks. I would suggest sitting on the steps and enjoying people watching in the 'Times Square of Split'

The GF and I stopped here for a coffee and water whilst wandering around Split. Lvxor is next to the palace and has three areas of seating - one area which is table and chairs under umbrella's, cushions on the steps near the Cathedral entrance and the actual restaurant. Either of the outdoor options are excellent to enjoy the square... More

You will stumble on this gem when walking around the Palace. The event not to miss is the live music at night with people sitting on cushions on the stone steps of the Peristyl enjoying a drink. Very atmospheric. You will pay for the privilege with beer at around £6 per litre. However it is unique experience. If you don't... More

Lvxor is a great spot for late night drinks after a day of touring Split. Bar is located right next to Diocletian's Palace and offers a good variety of wine/beer. Staff does a good job of following up with guests - even as it gets busier during peak happy hour/late evening hours. Bar also features live music at night (guitar... More

During our 8 day stay in Split we visited Lvxor 6 times in total - 4 times for coffee (oh, OK, and sometimes with a piece of cake!), twice for an evening meal. This cafe/restaurant is in a premium location being on the opposite side of the peristyle to the cathedral, so please don't complain if you pay slightly more.....and... More

We stopped here for lunch. We ate outside even though it was a little chilly. Both the service and food were good. We split a mixed grill meat platter and some grilled veggies. It came with a paprika-based dip.

Description
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 the Diocletian’s Mausoleum, - the Cathedral of St. Dujam, Lvxor Café and watching over the bliss of the city of Split
