This place provides excellent service and a kitchen with delicious fine dining food. The prices are quite nice too. We spent around 400 kuna each and had a three course meal with champagne and one of the best red wines Hvar has to offer. A must visit if you are looking for nice restaurants at Hvar.

I would highly recommend seeking out this place if you are looking for great food and atmosphere. Lucullus is a notch above the other fine dining establishments in Hvar in my opinion. We were a family of four with two teenage daughters and all of us agreed this was our favorite dinner during our stay. We had fish for two finished table side, wild boar and a lamb dish. Waiter was helpful and had good suggestions. Location is off the hustle and bustle of the main square on a quaint side street. Reservations a day or two in advance a must. Hostess turned many away.

By far, Lucullus was one of our most memorable experiences in Hvar. The food is wonderful and very Dalmatian but it's the staff that make this place special. They are warm, inviting and treat every guest like they are family.

On our last night on the island, they asked us to return to say goodbye. We were swept in to a Croatian celebration with music, singing, drinking & dancing.

Don't miss this place!

This was a fantastic find in Hvar. We tried to go one night having read good reviews but unfortunately they were fully booked, so we booked a table for the following night instead. I would certainly recommend booking ahead.
We were greeted at the door by the lovely hostess and shown to our seats by the owner, who proceeded to explain the house speciailities. My boyfriend ordered the spaghetti with prosciutto and truffle sauce followed by the wild boar and lavender gnocchi. I ordered the spaghetti with vegetables and garlic sauce and the house special of fish al forno. All dishes were truly superb, full of flavour, perfectly cooked and well presented. The gnocchi actually tasted of lavender!
We had a wonderful evening here at Lucullus, the staff were friendly and good humoured and were excellent at dealing with the big group of slightly inebriated folks next to us.
An absolute must and would certainly come here again.

Live music and good service and food, in a narrow street near Villa Nora hotel. Hvar has a great feel and Luculus is up there with the theme.
