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.

We had many delicious meals but this was by far the best in Amsterdam. Delicious vegies, Chef Kees comes out to visit and mingle. Its very small and lovely. The perfect place. Plus he worked with Alice Waters in Berkley Ca for a number of years.

What a breath of fresh air - finding a restaurant that has a relaxed friendly atmosphere and fabulous food. No stuffed up atmosphere and nitty picky food but wonderful flavour combinations, good portions and always unique and creative. We have eaten here now 5 times and this is by far my favourite restaurant in the Netherlands. My partner is vegetarian and generally loses out in restaurants but not here. We will be back!

Went on a Friday night as part of a group of 10 people celebrating a friend's Birthday. Food was fantastic with some really creative dishes (have never tried squid with aubergine and swiss chard - but it really worked!), wine list is long enough to have plenty of choice, service was extremely warm and efficient, and all-in-all a fantastic night. The chef came and sat with us at the end of the night - shows the friendliness of the place. For 30 Euro a head plus wine this is great value for food of this quality - would definitely recommend and be back when back in Amsterdam.

Went with a party of 10. Had fixed menu, imaginative dishes, great flavours. Wonderful wine selection. Terrific service. Just a great experience and would thoroughly recommend. Only slight negative is that it's very small, they pack people in and the sound levels are high. But I can live with that. Can't wait to go back to try alternative dishes.

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.
