We loved the restaurant! Food was to die for (esp carpaccio starter and desserts!). Out of the 3 places we dined at in Zaandam that was by far the best one! Lovely atmosphere and great service! Highly recommend this place

Most restaurants get stressy with groups of more than six people. Not the case here, we did call ahead but they are clearly used to it, like it and can handle it! We were twelve from 4 nationalities and had a great time relaxing after a long business conference.

We were two guys on a business dinner. We shared the Chef's special starter which was superb; one of the best starters I've ever had. Followed up with grilled prawns which came with a sour cream loaded baked potato and a variety of dips for the prawns - really tasty. Good wines by the glass. WiFi. Definite return place. €100...

This is a good place for all meat lovers, especially the Cote de Boeuf is a carnivore feast for a minimum of 2 persons! But they don't only serve great steaks. The variety in the bites menu is great as well and if you don't know what to pick, you can order a starter plateau so you can have a... More

Some clever flavor combinations but trying too hard to be innovative -- some of the combinations don't work. Note that the "Classic" section of the menu is also fairly nouvelle -- eg the carpaccio is made with an argentinian chimichurri. Also note that a steakhouse in europe generally can't match one in N or S America -- the cuts of... More

At first I thought friends were kidding when they stated that Castell's ribs were divine. They were right! The ribs are tender and moist. The steaks and fish were tasty. Entrees include meat selection, baked potato and side garnish of tomato. Simple but necessary...too much great food for one sitting...what a nice complaint to have

We went there for our last night in Amsterdam and arrived just before the kitchen closed (11:00 at night). The very friendly waiter that greeted us made us feel welcome and assured it was no problem. The place had a really nice atmosphere, very friendly and attentive staff. Food was excellent, my girfriend had the garlic prawns and they were... More

We had an excellent meal here which was beautifully presented by the first class staff. The fish of the day had a wonderful white wine sauce to accompany it and the wild boar had a fantastic sauce as well.Potatoes/Chips are an optional extra so the plates are never overloaded.Delicious sweets also.
