Despite friendly service the food was at best average - razor clams inedible and the slip soles a tad overlooked.

Not cheap but not unreasonable for what you... More

What a wonderful surprise. The food was excellent. I recommend the fish soup and the Dover Sole was superb. A table next to us ordered a seafood platter that looked fantastic and they really seemed to enjoy it as well. Highly recommended and slightly off the main tourist scene but still very close to everything.

We enjoyed a great meal with excellent service. The menu offered a nice selection. After oysters and the Celeriac soup with crab and dry sherry, we took our waiter's advice and split the Dover Sole, which was delicious. A very pleasant evening!

The name, Lucius, could easily be luscious; it is a traditional, rectangular room with the tables in the front, waiters in white shirts and aprons, and a menu that is fish, fish, fish. We had the prix fixe at 39 euros: first course of soup for her and, for me, the Poke "Lucius," a spicy combination of fried rice, vegetables,... More

Booking required (mistake we made) however they were able to let us have a table late(wish) that evening. It was well worth the wait. Delicious seafood with specials such as razor clams. Well worth it and well located.

We had a wonderful meal at Lucius restaurant in the heart of the city. They specialize in seafood and everything we had was absolutely fresh and delicious. We started we local oysters, then a lobster bisque, followed by octopus and two types of fresh fish for our entrees. A bottle of the house Sauvignon Blanc complimented the entire meal. Everything...

Excellent quality fish served in a simple way, no overkill of additional ingredients that overshout the delicate flavours. Very nice wine list. Pleasant atmosphere but quite noisy. Staff friendly and very professional. Foodwise one of the best fish restaurants I have ever been to.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood 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.
