"You get what you get" said the waiter when I complained about the "menu: slice of turbot pan-fried in butter with sauce hollandaise a € 32.50". Rather provocative,considering that the turbot was a very small, bony gill slit piece, deep-fried, not pan-fried, and the thick...More

Lucius Seafood Restaurant is one of the best seafood restaurants in Amsterdam. Nice place and amazing food. The service is very good. If you go to Amsterdam without visiting this restaurant you may have lost something.

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
