I'm a restaurant manager in London and my mate is a head chef in London also. We were thoroughly impressed by the passion and attention to every detail shown during are evening here. The food on top of this was outstanding, local, fresh and traditional. I will definitely be coming back as soon as I visit hvar again.

The food id delicious. The wine very well chosen and of high quality. But the best are the staff and it's owner. They offer a very special and unique service. You don't go just to Lucullus to eat but also to have a lot of fun and enjoy your time. I recommend this place highly to anybody who goes to... More

Great location, excellent food and nice athmosphere! We had the fish from wooden oven and think it was one of the best fish we ever had!

We had a reservation for 2 in the second round, we were the second in the list and the owner decided to cancel our reservation to accommodate a group of "regular good clients". A shame. The receptionist looked for a reservation for us I the restaurant in front, however it wasn't what we were looking for.

We came here just by chance as it seemed to have a nice ambience and the food sounded nice. All the food was great, including all the complimentary items. However, we were completely amazed by the incredibly delicious mushroom truffle sauce pasta, we strongly recommend it! We wish we had just ordered several times this dish. Great service and friendly... More

What a lovely restaurant: great food, great vibe, great entertainment and a wonderful service. The owner himself is fully involved in the restaurant and with the guests. We had a wonderful time there, got free drinks and free shots with the bill, and we sang our hearts out with their super fun local band!

Calling this place a restaurant is doing it a disservice; it is a night out! The waiters (Dario particularly) are funny, friendly and keep you entertained from start to finish. We went back twice and one family said they'd returned 4 nights in a row! Incidentally, the food and wine are also really lovely, but go willing to embrace the... More
