A wonderful restaurant with delicious food. We both had steak, which was excellent. Lovely atmosphere and decor and a nice outdoor eating space for the summer. Service was good although a little slow. Definitely worth a visit!

I was with a group of friends (9), they manage to get all our food together and everything was really good - most of us had a steak, but we also tried fish-based mains and starters. Also, the service was excellent and very kind!

Very lovely steak, perfectly cooked accompanied by a great wine. The waiting service was friendly and efficient. Would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Zaandam area. Chocolate dessert was gorgeous.

It was a nice experience to eat at Castell. Our waiter kept us well updated on their menu, and was a perfect host. Food and wine was good, like 4 of 5 stars.

For reasons best known to the Dutch, Castell does not want to let its customers eat at a easy to reach table. Seating is either at the bar, on your lap or in otherwise inconvenient locations. This is not a criticism, the peculiarity made the...More

A good-bye party with colleagues. Had I know it would be this costly I would have asked to book elsewhere. Starters euro 12/13, main courses 25/30 (fish). Glass of wine 4,50. The concept is nice though: there are classic dishes like escargots, onionsoup and new...More
