I had dinner with a couple good friends at Lucullus. The restaurant is located right in the old town center. We were sitting in the little courtyard of the restaurant as the weather was still warm end of September. The scenery is beautifu and has at night a really romantic ambience. I had the Tuna & Tuna. The presentation of... More

Great service and excellent food in a cosy courtyard setting. Nice relaxed (not too rushed) romantic meal. Good wine selection. Cheaper than equivalent restaurants in Hvar.

This place charges 20 kuna per per person as a cover. Oh well, not a problem. But then at the end of the dinner the waiter tols us that "tip is not included and would have to be in cash". When I pointed that there was a cover, he said that was for table setting, not for tipping. What??? Food... More

Went here after spotting the menu looked good and it surprised us by being one of the best meals we ever had. Could not more highly recommend.

This restaurant is in a charming location in one of the narrow streets around the square. Our waiter was charming with good knowledge of wine (and perhaps not as good knowledge of food ;-)). We had the tuna and the duck, they where both very good, and we got wine that complemented our meals in a good way.

We came upon this restaurant in the narrow alley and were impressed by the friendly staff, good service and good seafood. They had a very interesting wine called Prc produced in tiny quantities on Hvar island by Vujnovic which I would recommend.

An all round excellent experience. We sat in the atmospheric outside courtyard which is beautifully decorated. The service was tremendous throughout and the food and wine was truly exceptional. An absolute must if you visit Hvar.

Ordered fish Soup with Tartuffe and risotto. Soup was cold, saturated with Tartuffe extract and oily. Risotto had mediocre taste full of cheap cheese. After the comment that soup was cold (my cousin returned... More
