We sat on the steps around the church where the staff will wait on you and had wine and some appetizers. Nice service and tasty sncks and the price was right. Fun way to watch the people.

We stopped here for lunch. We ate outside even though it was a little chilly. Both the service and food were good. We split a mixed grill meat platter and some grilled veggies. It came with a paprika-based dip.

Description
LVXOR Café is a place where the history of Split and of the entire world expresses itself in an unusual and picturesque way. It was named after the Egyptian city of Luxor, where the sphinxes, the mythical creatures, originate from. They were brought by the Emperor Diocletian in 305 A.D. to his recently built gigantic Palace situated at the coast of the Adriatic Sea which represents the pearl of the antique architecture with obvious traces of Ancient Egypt. The best preserved sphinx, and there were about thirty in the Palace, originates from the period of Pharaoh Tuthmosis, and was constructed 36 centuries ago. Up to this day, it has been the guardian of the imperial square – Peristil, guarding the Diocletian’s Mausoleum, - the Cathedral of St. Dujam, Lvxor Café and watching over the bliss of the city of Split
