Very good food and atmospere

The seating arrangement is different and we were sat at the bar near the grill. The service and food was very good, one of the best mixed grills i have ever had. Some good wine choices, reasonably priced for this outstanding quality food and for 2 people in Amsterdam. Highly recommend.

We turned up around 8pm on a Friday without a reservation. The restaurant was completely full and we were given a 10pm table. We returned at 10pm and had to stand for about 20 minutes until seats opened up at the bar. But it was definitely worth the wait. The steak was amazing - far better than anything I've eaten... More

The restaurant has a really cool interior, sitting around the fire is amazing, you'll sit with friends in group which is quite casual and informal,you'll then be given your lap tray and you food will arrive - I always go for the rib eye (Black and Blue) its cooked really well, and considering most places don't know what you are...

Castell Bbq was recommended to us as part of a recent business trip and it was great. The seating arrangement is a little odd but adds to the ambience, you either eat at the bar or on sofas with a tray on your lap but you could be seated facing or sitting next to complete strangers. The servers were enthusiastic... More

Lovely place, recommended by a local friend. Really nice, smooth atmosphere with great background music. It's a perfect place for a date! We sat on low seats and ate with wooden trays upon our knees, very funky! I had a lovely steak and my partner the ribs.The steak was cooked to perfection and my partner stated the ribs were the...

Myself and my friend Ben consider ourselves as proper carnivores and as such were looking forward to our dinner at Castell. We weren't disappointed! We had booked in advance after having heard it is a popular spot, and I'd definitely recommend doing so to ensure that youll be 'able to get a table. We had asked to be seated at... More

Even sat down with us after his shift to talk to us and practice his English. I cannot wait to come back when I'm in Amsterdam again. What an experience. Definitely... More

When we arrived it was already quite busy and we hadn't made a reservation. We were told a table was ready but we could only have it for the hour. We were surprised to be shown to a low sort of bench surrounding a fire with people eating on their laps! Not what we expected but we were willing to... More
