Friends and family had an enjoyable meal at this busy and friendly restaurant. Those at the bar were enjoying themselves so you would not want to be looking for a quiet or romantic dinner here.

We chose a table as the one offered was in the outside section that appeared to be an add on. Both the pizza my friend had and the seafood pasta I ordered were very tasty.... More

Deplorable service, waited a good twenty minutes for our drinks then watched them sit on the bar for another five minutes. So my husband and I took it upon ourselves to get them!

Never known pizza to completely burn our mouths and lips. Ordered a Castro's pizza (takeaway)and could barely eat it. Have eaten plenty of pizza in our time, but never so incredibly hot that it burned our mouths ! We tasted the pepperoni on its own but it was okay. We think someone must have made a mistake with the tomato... More

Too loud, terrible service. Wont be back. Food tasty but expensive, wait staff had no idea what to do. Popular restaurant - have no idea why. Id rather try many of the other restaurants in Coolum.

Hadn't been for years but friends said it was an easy going relaxing place to enjoy pizza and pastas - great place to enjoy with friends, easy to park nearby and friendly service - not fine dining but a place to enjoy any night of the week.
