Description: Already more then 16 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.

“Warm atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by a friend of mine who lives in Amsterdam when I went there with 5 colleagues/friends for a weekend conference. The hotel made the reservation for us and the minute after, I got a call back from the restaurant. The restaurant wanted to tell me that after some rearranging of tables they had been able to accomodate our group of six and they politely asked me to give notice if we where not able to arrive that evening. I assured him that we were really looking forward to it.

The visit was a great success. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and the staff is kind and focused on giving you a great food experience. Our waitress gave us a thorough description of the menu of the day (4 courses with the possibility to swap some dishes to other alternatives) she even got out a food dictionary to make sure that we got the correct translations. All the food and the suggested wines where great!

For six persons we paid approximately 450 euro and then all of us had drinks to start of the meal, we had the full menu with 4 dishes, 2 bottles of wine (and some beer), coffe and 5 glasses of dessert-wine.

I can truly recommend this place to every one.

“top-notch service and food, as always”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I hadn't been in a few years, and went back and they are in larger quarters, but still doing the wonderful food, essentially a fixed menu. Tasty, fresh, seasonal, inventive. Total delight

“Excellent food and welcome”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Marius was an amazing dining experience and pretty good value as well...we went with the tasting menu and the dish that was a true standout was the langoustines in a bean/crustacean sauce, absolutely superb! All of the meat and fish dishes were cooked to perfection, service was excellent, I will return the next time I'm in Amsterdam!

“Unpretentious little gem with amazing food”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Small restaurant with a great concept: chef goes to the market every day and brings fresh ingredients. With that he assembles a 4 course meal. Surprising, great tastes and pure food. Small servings and tigh spaces make the value a little bit less than you would expect. But the wonderful flavors make up for that.

“Not in love, yet”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Went here after reading positive reviews. Liked it, but didn't fall in love. The owner does a very good job, the waitress kind of repeated the same story about going to the market every morning and selecting fresh produce. I don't fall for that. I agree with those who find the prices on the steep side. I would like to go back fo a second try, though.
