It's in the hearth of the Amsterdam, very easy to reach. There are few tables to sit. We use sofa, and share a place with someone. It's amazing, but it is also annoying when somebody is serving something over you. They serve very delicious steaks in a very cozy atmosphere. My steak was cooked very good. They really know how...

Always when in Amsterdam we have dinner in Castell. All those times we were never disappointed. Steaks are superb, service is great and the bar is nice place to eat.

These guys have got the right balance of service, food and atmosphere. It's not a posh restaurant but it's not shabby chic. The staff are great, the food is consistently good and they're open till late. They have got it right and i've been there 4 times and counting. If you're in Amsterdam don't give this a miss.

Went here on my birthday with my girlfriend. Food was very nice, crab cocktail and prawns tasted very fresh and the sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. Really liked the atmosphere in the restaurant with the dark lighting, made it feel very secluded. Only thing I could complain about was how long it took to order a drink, considering we... More

My friends and I were in the area and decided we wanted to try Castell out. We were happy that they could organize seats for the three of us eventhough the place seemed super full. The staff was great and the food as well. We were fortunate to get a place at the bar to eat as all other tables... More

We booked a table from the UK online prior to our arrival. We got there they had our reservation ready, they took our coats and took us to our seats. As with previous reviews we were seated around a large table where other diners were sat. Which is a good way of helping make your mind up as to what... More

A friend of ours recommended the place. It was simple delicious !! We got spareribs with baked potato and a lady steak with salat and would definitely come back. Unusually they do not have tables and you sit on a couch. To eat you get a wooden tablet on your knees and it could be a little bit difficult to... More

This is our fourth visit to eat barbeque in this restaurant. We preferred the cauches around a fire place and rib plates on our laps. Ribs are always good and tasty and goes good with wine. When there are all men groups ( and they usually have) it is noisy other wise it is a nice place to eat. Reservation... More
