Castell

Within walking distance of the Leidseplein you will find Castell, a concept in Amsterdam. Here the steaks are served until after midnight on weekends and because of the location on the water you can also order food from your boat.

Castell's roots

On February 1, 1999, Pijke ter Burg entered Restaurant Castell with a wine opener in his pocket. It soon became apparent that everything that Castell presents is actually what Pijke stands for. The class, the food, the finery. But also the Amsterdam, the 'us knows us'; the living room feeling that is characteristic of Castell. In 2003, Pijke thought it was time to take over Castell together with Ritske, who had been behind the bar for 13 years. With the help of a top team, the duo took Castell to a higher level. The combination of the focus on the business public and the increasing tourism in Amsterdam ensured that everything went well. ��We were in the flow,” beams Pijke. In 2010, Ritske took a well-deserved retirement. It was Pijke who remained. He who breathes Castell.
