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.

Fairly run of the mill and quite over priced seafood restaurant. The quality of the fish we ate was at best average. The service was business like

Referred from our hotel and not disappointed. Confusion over our reservation time caused us to be very late. We were still welcomed and seated even though the house was full. The food and service were both top notch. You can't go wrong here.

I've been to many fish and seafood restaurants all over the world. This is genuinely up there with the best! Wild sea bream with cockles and a crab cocktail to start. Absolutely amazing food!

If you are seafood lover ( like me ) then this resturant is a must try while in Amsterdam , They carry fresh selection of seafood , Service is normal ( while some waiters are unfriendly ) . Try the cold king crab legs ( it's more than 300 gms )

Very good selection of fresh and well-prepared seafood and fish; do not miss the seafood platter for two or the fresh Dover sole. Good and efficient service. Somewhat pricey.

All we ate was so delicious, you should try lobster and king prawn. Mussels are well cooked and seasoned. Plate with different grilled fishes was good to try local fishes.

I asked the concierge at our hotel to recommend a fish place, he spoke highly of Lucius and reserved our table for 19:15. When we arrived, 2 groups who had just entered were being turned away even though the restaurant was hardly occupied. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table at the back of the restaurant where we... More
