This is the second time we dined at Marius (first in 2015, reviewed as Chez Panisse in Amsterdam) and it was as good as the first time. Items with a star on the menu are recommended by the staff. Superfresh ingredients (roasted tuna for appetizer - well-stocked bouillabaise - three different desserts). The service is genuine: they listen and react... More

A wonderful meal ! A Chefs set meal with alternatives available. We stayed with the set meal. Each course was well thought out and very tasty. The staff are excellent -- extremely helpful. I would say you must book in advance.

We've been for romantic dinners to Marius before and were again not disappointed. Service is excellent, food intolerances aren't an issue and the food is simply delicious. We went along with the wine recommendations and it matched each course perfectly. Dining at Marius doesn't only guarantee excellent food but also a whole dining experience as amazing flavours melt into a... More

One of the best restaurants I've been to anywhere. We had the 4 course menu and each dish was novel and delicious and portions perfectly sized. The nemesis chocolate cake was simply out of this world! The oil, meats, wine were all of the highest quality. The owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming. The bill was 100 euros... More

It started as a table d'hote by two Chez Panisse alums over a dozen years ago. It's now a little larger, and the menu a little more complicated than a fixed four course. But it's still like eating in a chef's home dining room, still smart and delicious, and now has an expanded wine list (they own the wine bar/small... More

Chef/owner Cees Helfring worked alongside the renown Alice Waters at Chef Panisse in CA. His menu and presentation are reflective of Waters' philosophy of truly fresh, local ingredients that blend so smoothly no one taste stands out. This small, white table cloth restaurant with just chef Helfring and a sous working the kitchen puts out beautiful dishes served by a... More

Small restaurant so do make reservations. It has a very down to earth atmosphere, which I enjoyed very much. The menu changes regulary and always represents the present season. We had the 4 dish menu, the portions not too big but just right. Wine suggestion excellent. Service was also on point. Didn't rush us and wasn't slow at the same... More

Already more then 10 years Marius is a concept as a small table d' hote with a daily changing menu of 4 courses. We adhere the refined country kitchen: simply real food made from natural ingredients, maybe French, maybe Mediterranean, but surely our expression of what we like and oh dear... How much we love veggies. Since we moved to our new location March 2012, we are slightly more of a restaurant and therefor a bit more spacious and comfortable. But at the same time it is still cosy and sometimes crowded with conviviality and we still partly have our family styled shared tables. At Marius we always serve what we find on the market. Our 4 course menu changes daily en costs 47,50 euro. Next to with the menu we always have a few specialities like Bouillabaise and Vitello Tonato. Alongside the menu we serve, if you like, a appropriate wine suggestion. But gladly we invite you to study our extensive wine card and find you your favorite bottle. When the weather allows we have a little Parisien like, sidewalk terrace.
