“Looking for fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

A good selection on the menu with some daily specials. Excellent service, the restaurant was busy but no suggestion of being rushed to release the table. We had mussels and shrimps for starters with dorade and catch of the day, all beautifully presented.

“There are better places for seafood....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We dined in a team of 5 within colleagues during a biz trip last week in Amsterdam.
The place is nice, quite crowded actually.
We decided to go for a Lucius plate for 5, consisting of a big variety of lobster, shrimps, giant shrimps, calms, mussels, crabs.
We had to ask to change the crab since it was completely frozen, the clams and shells were ok but nothing special, while the lobster was very good.
I was very disappointed when I saw in the bill that we were charged 2x55€ for 2 Lucius plates (this is ok) and 62.5€ for a separate plate. Why charging the single plate price once we ordered 5?
Besides this I was very sick two days after the dinner but I am not completely sure if it is their fault, although I have some bad feelings.

One additional remark : for the price they charge you they could give you some towels to clean yourself better!
I will not come again in this place anyway
