Great restaurant right in our beautiful hotel, Villa Nora. Had the whole fish cooked in a wood burning oven with vegetables and potatoes. It was delicious. Nice Croatian sparkling wine to start. Very helpful and attentive staff. All food was the highest quality. One waiter is an absolute nut and put on different costumes to serve different tables. Although he was really funny, he detracted from the great food. Wonderful musician but the music was again too loud to really appreciate the fine food. Be certain to try the very fine Posip white wine on your trip.

We enjoyed a nice evening here with great seafood. The waiting staff are very humorous and laid back. The restaurant also had two Dalmatian singers on the night we were there which was great.

Get the white fish. They bake it in the oven with vegetables, potatoes and white wine. It's the best fish I've ever eaten and the way it's cooked leaves a delicious smoky taste in your mouth. Hvar can be hit or miss when it comes to restaurants but Lucullus was by far the best meal we had during our stay.

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.

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!
