Had been looking forward to trying Castros after reading great reviews but was disappointed from the start. The initial welcoming from staff was very cold and continued through the evening. Waitress did all the right things like bring water, new cutlery etc but the body language and attitude made some of us feel uncomfortable. I didn't think asking for fresh... More

Excellent menu and wine list. Only problem with the place was that there is no air con and little air circulation on the very hot night we were there. This is a problem since the restaurant is a block back from the water and doesn't get much breeze. Food, wine and service were excellent, as was the general vibe of... More

A bad experience at Castro's years ago has kept me away but I recently returned for dinner with friends and it was great. The restaurant was crowded but the staff handled things well and were friendly and professional. The food arrived in a timely manner and was amazing. The duck in particular was out of this world good. I'm so... More

Very nice meal with great service. Only hiccup was that my wife's meal was very very late coming out and we had ask the waitress where it was.

Of 9 dishes ordered all were outstanding. Great flavours, good portions - really great food. Service was friendly and attentive. Couple of forgotten items but was a busy night and staff very quick once reminded. Great find in Coolum. We will be back.

Booked ahead after reading reviews and was lucky we did. People were arriving and being told waiting time up to 1 hr. Dine in menu was good. Duck really nice as was Pork dish. Drinks cold and all prices reasonable. Service was polite and waitstaff did well considering the place was full and the Take-Away never stopped. We had outside... More

Dropped in for a drink on 30 Dec and liked the vibe. Checked NYE menu and whilst a set-menu looked better that where we had previously booked so we changed our reservations to Castro's. Disappointed with an inside table next to hot open kitchen but staff said take a seat at bar and within 5 minutes they arranged an outside... More
