“Friendly people”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We actually didn't eat here but Fric, one of the waiters here, lured us into the restaurant for some prosecco and charming conversation. The prosecco was excellent. We explained that we were looking to buy some local wine, and he poured a few varieties for us to try. It was all very good and we ended up getting a bottle with the approval of Stipe, the owner. I really enjoyed the experience and the conversation and would gladly come back to try the food... unfortunately, this happened at about midnight on our last night in Hvar, but perhaps someday in the future.

“Very memorable dinner”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We loved Lucullus and so did our guests. We were married in Jelsa on August 4th and visited Lucullus 2 nights before the wedding. It was the first night on the island for most of our guests and we had arranged a dinner for 14 people with Stipe the night before. The food was excellent, the service was great and the entertainment was awesome. It was a great introduction to the island and the perfect start to the weekend. They were very accommodating for our meat only and vegetarian eaters as well as a small child. I would highly recommend this place, thanks for the great memory!

“As good as last year”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Hvar is a lovely old town full of tourist traps - and therefore it's really good to have a place like LUCULLUS where the staff is friendly and the food is very good. No matter if you take the fish carpaccio, the Fish from the oven or the Filet with Gorgonzola sauce - it's all very good. Unfortunatelly - this year - the desserts aren't at the same standard as the rest of the food.

Conclusion: when you're in Hvar and want to go away from the tourist traps (such as Gariful etc.) just walk to LUCULLUS and have a seat on the lovely terrace.

“Went here based on reviews-couldnt see what the fuss was about”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This was definitely the worst experience we had on hvar, and certainly the most expensive. The food tasted like it had been microwaved, the portions were small, the service was just plain embarrasing and to top it all off, they added a 25% 'automatic tip' on over and above all the prices in the menu. when we complained they told us they were the best restaurant in town and if we didnt like it we shouldnt have come.

“bad food, worse service”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Easily the worst meal of our vacation - food was cold, service was rude, and it was very very expensive. Could have got better tasting food at the supermarket and just eaten it in our hotel room.
