When I say " unique ", I mean it in the loose sense that they just don't serve strictly Dalmatian food. There are a lot of traditional items on the menu but they also have haute-cuisine of wonderful duck breasts, tuna steaks and a prawn risotto that is to die for! LOCATION: The location is in a tiny, romantic alleyway.... More

Superior food and excellent friendly service. The outdoor tables are on a terrace separated from the street by a wall, so that in has more intimacy than the numerous sidewalk cafes..

Thing that makes this place so special is not too big menu, but at the same time offers so many amazing things! Went with a friend, and decided to eat seafood! Loved tastes that we got on our plates, combining tradition and modern is always a brave and good decision! I don't know which course I've liked more.. Wine list... More

This has to be the best meal I have had in the fifteen years i have been coming to Croatia. We were a party of six and everyone chose a different main. There was much debate as to who made the right choice as every dish was outstanding, starters, mains and dessert and accompanied by exquisite wine.

6 of us went to dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday. We decided to go slightly more formal as it was a special occasion. We found Lucullus in one of the side alleys and are so happy we did! The staff were amazing, a nice cool breeze flowed through the courtyard and the food was certainly memorable! Although the restaurant... More

What a romantic setting in an ancient courtyard with beautifully decorated tables. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. A truly memorable dining experience in Hvar.

We were walking the alleys to find a restaurant with fewer tourists than you find just off the main square and by the docks. We were drawn in by the patio area, which really sets a beautiful scene and shields you from the masses of people passing through the surrounding streets. Overall the meal was a bit expensive but delicious.... More

Service was impeccable and the food was superb. We have been travelling through Europe for over a month and this was by far the best meal of the trip. The prawn home made pasta was the absolute stand out along with the creme brulee. Could not fault this restaurant, absolutely outstanding!
