Had dinner with friends. Excellent waiter, nice ambiance. Quality of the food was superb however I was a bit disappointed by the quantities of the dishes. I would definitely come back in summer for the garden. However the price quality ratio is a bit off.

The recommendations were excellent so we decided to have a romantic dinner at Lux. unfortunately, the expectations were not met. The menu is simple, with limited choice only. They want you to take their 7 course discovery menu, which we did. First of all, they brough a bottle of cooled tap water, which we appreciated. Then homemade bread and yak... More

The food was quite alright, good taste and presentation. I cannot say this was a good ambassador Italian restaurant. Because it is definitely not. Even the menu had several grammar errors and some dishes I have never heard in Italy. No Italian personnel. The overall? Good food, but not Italian, maybe just some influence.

Since most good restaurants are closed on Sundays, I was happy to find Lux open, because had something to celebrate. Besides, as the name and website info implies, expected it to have a classy, intimate setting in a very appealing price range. Didn't find that. First of all, the restaurant is located in a rather shady neighborhood...or so it seamed... More

The menu had a number of delicious italian dishes, with a couple of vege options for my friend. We picked some of the antipasti selection from the cart, and had the risotto as a main.

One of the best "Italian restaurant" I've ever been. Amazing meat and see food made in traditionally.The antipasti variety is exciting, the stewed Octopus is delicious. Everybody should try it once. recommended place to be in.

It had been quite some time ago since my wife and I had visited Lux (i.e., 2012), and this time we found the restaurant back reduced by 50% in size, and run by the former chef de cuisine who had taken over business in 2013. The reduction in size has benefited the restaurant; there was much less echo and therefore,... More

I went to this very nice restaurant couple of times with my girl friend while we were visiting Rotterdam. After long days of walking in the beautiful streets of the city what could have been more rewarding than enjoying an absolutely wonderful food in a very cozy and inviting atmosphere. Overall the service was excellent. The food was very good.... More

The menu was only in holland language. The translation from waitress was " this is fish, this is veal..." And the cook admit himself drink a beer right to the entry to the restaurant at his working hours!
