The Red Castle Restaurant was founded in 1899. Unless you have a GPS, good directions, or a friend/guest/tour guide that has been there before, it is not an easy place to find in the Danshui area. Even if you are on the road, it is not easy to see because you have to climb a combination of many sets of... More

Menu all in Chinese but translated by the waitress. Spicy beef was delicious as was the steamed fish. Sweet and sour fish had a very glutinous sauce but the fish was tasty.

I came here as a half-way point in a cycle from downtown Taipei. The waitress saw that I was overheated from my cycle and got me ice and water straight away. I was on floor 3 (the cafe) for lunch. I ordered a chicken steak and curry risotto, as well as an iced fruit tea. Portions were big. Flavours were... More

It is a hike up many many steps to this restaurant from the main Tamsui pedestrian area, but the area and old colonial building are interesting and it is obvious en route that the view will be great. Once inside, it is not particularly clear where prospective diners are supposed to go, but through speaking to the wait staff in... More

I have been on a business lunch at the red castle and have had very mixed experience. The place is a beautifully restored victorian palace. The insude is also great. Unfortunately the view, despite high location, is obstructed. The food was mixed. The fried softshell crab recommended by Lonely Planet tasted only of frying and not of crab at all,... More

It's quite a climb up to the Red Castle. The outdoor lounge is great during the fall. The design and restoration of this building is fabulous. Very nicely done. However, the food is just average. Nothing to rave about. But the ambiance is great.
