My wife and I were walking past Lucullus and the lady at the front started chatting with us about life in Hvar. She was warm and engaging and convinced us that a dinner here would be great. We booked a table for that evening and returned later and weren't disappointed. The food was fabulous, the wine delightful and the service... More

Considering all the reviews I was very disappointed with the food and the service. The food was overpriced and the service was poor the waiter failed to top up my wine glass and left the cork on the table. The setting is beautiful and the wine tasted delicious however my opinion is that it wasn't for me.

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.
