This place is really paradise for seafood lovers. The dishes are excellent and well served. It's kind of expensive but worth it. First meal in Amsterdam and one of the best.

I ate at this restaurant 18 years ago and remember it being special. It is still very good although it is very crowded and reservations are recommended. The fish soup and the "bourride Lucius" were excellent. The grilled salmon was a bit dry. Friendly service.

Great seafood, The dining area is nice but not fancy. More traditional Dutch with lots of locals dining. The lobster bisque was excellent. Lucius serves a lovely, rich reduction with small chunks of lobster, and they bring the cream to the table for you to...More

Don't get carried away with the drama of the platter It's expensive and not very nice. It does look impressive but honestly I think plain old fish and chips would have been a better choice. The service was excellent.

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
