I have little to add to my previous reviews of this excellent fish restaurant, a firm favourite with me as with so many others. I ate there twice recently, and once again admired the qualities that make this a model of what a restaurant should be - apart from the food, impeccable service, a serious attitude to eating but with...

Loved the Oysters - super fresh and creamy! Grilled mixed seafood and the catch of the day were very tasty too with good sides included. The desert (Chocolate cake with Hazelnut Ice Cream) was to die for! The Aquarium inside is super entertaining with tons of salt water creatures, pick a seat next to it if you'd get a chance... More

Good quality and friendly and experienced service make Lucius a very recommended spot for your dinner. Price is definitely reasonable... so what can you not find here? Well: if you are looking for a romantic place or either a very sophisticated menu' or set-up, you should probably consider alternative options.

I had visited this restaurant in 2014 and recalled a good experience. The food and service were both excellent. Nice, authentic atmosphere. Well worth the premium (but not extortionate) prices.

Our family of four adults and one infant enjoyed a fabulous meal at Lucius our first night in Amsterdam. The wait staff went above and beyond in making our dinner a real treat. We were traveling with an infant, and they were very accommodating to a diner his age! The adults all enjoyed our meals: The mixed seafood grill was... More

We had a great evening and my selection of mixed fish was good and the Sauvignon we enjoyed with supper was excellent and good value. My husband had the Scallops starter as we had eaten a late lunch. There were 4 small ones (at... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
