“Excellent tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We chose from the tapas menu rather than the alternative of steaks. There was a decent selection at a cost of about €6 per tapa. For two of us we had olives followed by two vegetable, two fish and two meat tapas at a cost of €40. The grilled sepia was excellent - firm but nor chewy and with just a touch of charring on the outside - also the wrinkled potatoes were notable. The house wine - a temporanilo at €18 per litre - was very drinkable and decent value but the main wine list was expensive with an Alborino at €37 and Faustino I at €51.The setting is pleasant and the staff extremely charming albeit slightly chaotic.

“Nice surprise in Amsterdam ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

After the bad experience at the "cafe de klos" we had no chance to eat well and happily in this city, we were wrong. This Sud American restaurant has delicious steaks and I suggest to try the boiled potato with acid wiped cream. Alvaro, the owner, is very cheerful and funny, a real breath of fresh air in Amsterdam!

A smallish place in the heart of Amsterdam Castillo has an excellent menu...! The steaks are a must try.... The staff is very friendly and helpful and what more the place is not too pricey!

“Just go inside!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This place really amused me. From the outside it doesn't say much, but what really matters is inside, right? So just go in and meet very friendly people, great service and more important, what you are looking for... the best food in Amsterdam!
I went for dinner with a Spanish friend, I ordered steaks (from Argentina and Uruguay) and she had Mussels. Everything was simply delicious!!!
A great value, I'll definitely come back and I surely recommend Castillo to everyone visiting Amsterdam.
