Lvxor Café is located in the very center of the Diocletian’s Palace, at Peristil Square. Over the years, it has become one of the favorite meeting points of the cultural and social elite of Split, and one of the most frequently visited spots in Split, mostly for foreign tourists.


It is widely known for its quality aroma of coffee, homemade delicacies, national slow food cuisine and extensive wine list. The pleasant ambiance is complemented by the frequently held piano and jazz nights as well as other cultural events.


The interior of the café and the restaurant is decorated with natural materials, predominantly wood and stone, and elegant furniture and decorative details which exuberate retro elegance and warmth. The overall special experience in Lvxor Café is complemented by the beautiful view of the eternal Peristil Square and the awe-inspiring Bell Tower of Saint Dujam (St. Domnius), the patron saint of Split. Thanks to its location it has a higher price of the drinks than an average in Split.


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 Lvxor, where the sphinxes, the mythical creatures are originally from. They were brought by 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.

  1. “Great value, nice staff, lovely surroundings”

    Im surprised this restaurant is not ranked higher. The surroundings are unbeatable in Split: right amongst the fascinating ruins of the palace. Staff are nice and friendly and service is great. Food was lovely and great value. I had an omelette and Greek salad and my partner had the stuffed rump steak which he thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely worth a visit!

  2. “Great breakfast in the Old City”

    In every way this small restaurant exceeded expectations. The food was delicious and portions generous. The WiFi fast. The service was superb. The price is what I expected in the summer high season. I have been traveling for the past 6 weeks and this place will be remembered as a highlight. The coffee was the best so far, and the fresh fruit appetizing! I would recommend to friends who might travel here one day. Far surpasses the smoke filled cafes that line the outer wall and the “5 star” hotel’s breakfast up the road!

  3. “Great place for evening entertainment”

    It is a very central location and right at the foot of Diocletian’s cathedral – it’s quite a breathtaking setting while enjoying some drinks and music.

  4. Dreadful service & overpriced

    This restaurant and bar has free live music on the main square in the evenings. The day we came two men with guitars were performing – they were really out of tune. We ordered house red, which was at a ridiculous price of 95 kuna (~£11.60) and it was absolutely disgusting.
    We were walking past two days later and the music actually sounded really good (it was a different singer). However, within two seconds of sitting downs on the side opposite the restaurant a waiter came over to take our drinks order, we said “no thank you” he then proceeded to inform us that it’s the “bar area” and we need to move if we are not ordering.

  5. Perfect location, expensive drinks

    The location is perfect, based in the heart of a beautiful city. Definitely a must in the evening; it is a wonderful opportunity to see Peristil Square lit up in the darkness, whilst listening to live music. We only came here for drinks so I cannot comment on the food, however the cost for drinks was expensive.
