A top choice for fresh fish in Amsterdam, Lucius is decked out like a traditional fishmongers with tiled walls and marble tabletops, wooden seating, and ceiling fans. It has been going great guns for more than 40 years. The spectacular seafood platter includes piles of fresher-than-fresh mussels, oysters, clams, and shrimp, plus a half lobster, and there’s a reasonably priced set menu for 39.50€, consisting of three courses that could include langoustines, grilled octopus, or earthy pike perch. Cooking styles are unfussy, allowing the true taste of the fish to shine on the plate. Reservations are recommended on the weekend.
