I love this place. Was here a year ago in December 2016 and remarked that the portions were a bit small. To cure that, I ordered the Grand Plateau and found it just right for me alone. This item is a duplicate of the famous...More

Lucius is a small but very comfortable and friendly restaurant with consistent good quality food. The staff are very nice and helpful in every way. The atmosphere is casual and friendly.

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
