This restaurant was recommended by our conceirge. In brief, the fish meal I had didn't seem fresh and the entire preparation was quite average, BUT, the neighborhood was fun and the restaurant was lively. I should add that the folks I was with also had entrées quite disappointing and that was the evening's special. Go elsewhere for fish I'm sorry... More

We loved this classic seafood restaurant, in fact went two nights. Mussels were excellent and whole dover sole (which we shared) was very good also. Wood panel, tile floors and wall and waiters in long white aprons.

Service was good enough. Let down by the food. Overrated. Had seafood platter at €65. Oysters were good, Half lobster was OK. Crab meat not that fresh, bother on to off. The rest of the seafood platter were of poor quality. Tried it once, won't try it again.

We were looking for a restaurant that served good fish. We were walking down the street that is decorated with many murals dating from the '60's and we stumbled upon this restaurant. The interior is dark wood with blue & white Delft tiles. The tables are marble top topped with crisp white napkins & bright silverware. There is a beautiful... More

The restaurant is small, crowded and buzzy. The service was efficient and friendly. The local Zealand mussels for starters were delicious, served with three sauces - curry, rouille and saffron, and marie rose with whisky. I tried the sauces but they overwhelmed the mussels so I left them. And there's the problem, if the basic food is good, it doesn't... More

We enjoyed a great seafood dinner at Lucius. The restaurant is small and cozy - a reservation is a good idea. There were lots of locals eating there and for me that is always a good sign. Our wait staff were quite helpful and observant. We ordered from the menu and were not disappointed - loved the mussels.

Had the price fixe menu. Tuna app was good, baked mussels were ok. Service was poor. Had to ask for everything. Waitress failed to tell us one dish was very hot so wife burned her hand. Had swordfish with octopus and it was a strange combination. Wife hated it. When we were asked how the meal was we told the... More

This place is very popular so make sure to make a reservation. Not fancy but very good food. It's rather loud and the service is only average but I would definitely go back.

Four of us enjoyed a variety of menu items, all beautifully prepared. We are all fish lovers and were pleased with our choices. The mussels special was very tasty. The restaurant is small, and tables are close together. Reservations are a must. We experienced good service and our waiter was very friendly.

This is a place in which you can trully enjoy how they cook seafood. Theier wines are stupendus. The place, very little but cozy. Very good service. Not a nice location, but is worth going there. A piece of advice: Make a reservation, if not, you will not be able to eat here.
