The best seats in the house are at the counter near the grill. You get a table top and a view of the chef making your dinner!

Good ambiance, good food, good wine... Should try the spare ribs with the special sauce.. Don't forget to taste garlic butter breads before meal.

While searching for a resturant in Amsterdam to eat steak in, we found this resturant by reading reviews on tripadvisor. When we arrived in the street were the resturant is located it seemed like it was closed, but we heard noise while approaching the entrance door. The place has a different atmosphere than most resturants, and that I mean in... More

We chose this place because of great reviews and it's location near the Museumplein, so that we could eat on the early side and then enjoy the late hours on Friday night at the Van Gogh Museum. So we arrived around 6:30pm, which is definitely early by AMS standards, and were seated right away. Our orders were taken not long... More

We saw this place reviewed trip advisor and marked it on our map before we left for Amsterdam. On a rainy night when in the area we decided to go to the area and eat either here or at the nearby (and also well reviewed) Bar Amstel. One quick look at the food on offer at Barbeque Castell and we... More

This restaurant with no table....is the most amazing place I have eaten. We first arrived and were greeted by a wonderful gentleman who explained that we could sit at the bar or on the lovely leather sofas and food is served on wooden platters. We opted to sit by the bar and watch the food being prepared. Our whole experience... More

My husband and I lived in the US - one would think the best place to eat ribs. We thought this place in Amsterdam has better ribs. Nice location, great atmosphere, so we highly recommend.

We've lived in Amsterdam for nearly 2 years now and have tried many places to get a good steak or robs fix. I was surprised when a friend suggested this place as it is just steps away from the Leidesplein tourist area---a area we generally avoid when eating out. Now, we can't wait to go back. If the weather is... More

Living in Amsterdam for a year, we have searched for great steak. Until we found Castell, we settled for average steaks and assible ribs. The steak was great at and superbly cooked. The ribs were fork tender and flavorful. This is not Tennessee ribs, but any rib fan will be happy with Castell. The restauant is a little funky. Ask... More
