Red Castle 1899
Red Castle 1899 information
Lonely Planet review
This Victorian-style building is an architectural landmark in Tamsui, and was built between 1895 and 1899. Beautifully restored and reborn as a swank eatery, Red Castle serves both Western and Chinese dishes. The third floor cafe/bar called Red 3 Cafe has sublime views over the river from its outdoor deck and is open till at least 11pm.
To find the place, walk along Zhongzheng Rd to Alley 14 and then head up the 106 narrow granite steps.
