Nice but casual neighborhood find

This is a small, but lovely place in a convenient neighborhood. The food was very good as was the service. Lots of fresh fish and several options. Sit near the fish tank for extra ambiance

I had to make reservations to get a spot at Lucius. Recommended by a friend, I enjoyed my dinner. The catch of the day was the sea bass, with the fish presented in its entirety. It's quite a challenge and a bit technical (for me at least) to eat the fish like that. I also thoroughly enjoyed the mussels, which... More

He said it was directly behind the hotel! David, the waiter started teasing immediately which brightened the mood considerably! He brought us some house Sauvignon Blank,... More

I had a "suprise" diner which was quit a very nice experience.It was really a (very nice) suprise diner. They think in very small details. And the service is what you call "great"! If you look for a special fish restaurant don't look further. In the heart of town. The owner can be pround on such product. Congratulations!!!

We had the daly special that included soft tacos with king prawns, mango, onion, tomato and fresh coriander with avocado aioli, blackened halibut fillet, sweet potato flavored with coconut and cumin served with gumbo. The gumbo was actually gumbo sauce, all very tasty. Good ambiance and service.

Excellent variety of fresh fish. Excellent staff (Sam was especially helpful. All with good English). No choice of side dishes. No problem. You focus on the fish!

I have been there for 2 days consecutive. The first day we had the dinner course menu, the mango shirmp taco is one of the best. The next day we had the cold platter and it was not up to our expectation. But overall the experience was not bad and we will definitely go back again.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
