Have been there several times over the past few years when staying at Peregian Beach & never been disappointed with the food. Hard to choose but a couple of weeks ago had a lovely pizza; Pepper Steak with Chilli Jam. Will keep going back for sure.

Some of the best pizzas you will get anywhere and a very relaxing atmosphere close to the beach and holiday accommodation. Prompt and friendly service.

Any gluten free diners visiting Coolum should drop in and give Castro's a go! Great menu, heaps of gluten free options, and reasonably priced. It was a nice surprise, and well worth the visit.

We thought we'd give it a go seeing that we had family looking after our boy. Our expectations were not high but we were very happy with what was served and the atmosphere. Not pretentious good quality food with reasonably priced wine. Recommended.

Castro's is not cheap but the food is great. I have been there a few times and will be back again. They have special nights during the week which makes it a bit more affordable.
