A very relaxing coastal style bistro and bar - good range of pizzas and pastas. Has a meat lovers Chicago style with pepper steak - it looked small but turned out to be difficult to finish - nice thick base with lots of toppings. You wouldn't go away hungry from here.

Cant wait to go back again, great pizza and a mix of italian and Mediterranean meals. Its a great destination after a day or a weekend on the Sun Shine coast, hard to find anywhere that is constantly good and a reasonable price.

Just stopped in for coffee. Waited forever for coffee and again waited forever to pay. Coffee was average.

My teenage children and myself recently re-visited Castro's to remind ourselves of the taste and experience of the best pizza ever. Pizza combinations are tasty and insightful. Pizza served piping hot. Pastry - perfectt! Service was punctual and friendly. Can't wait till the next holiday around Coolum.

Castros has become a real favourite and we try and dine there at least once a week. The staff always greet you with a smile and take great pride in explaining the Specials menu and any other queries. The food is always excellent although we are yet to try their pizzas only because we are not great pizza fans. The... More

Recently spent a week in Coolum and dined here on 3 occasions. Great variety of dishes from wood fired pizza to paella and the pork belly is incredible. Service is exceptional. Seating can be inside or out and there is a nice little bar. Pricing is good value with most mains under $30. I will be returning soon.

This is arguably the best restaurant on the coast. Doesn't have the views over the water but the food spcertainly makes up for it. The staff are always helpful and friendly. We have lived in COOLUM Beach for 4 years and keep going back again and again.

I've eaten here few times. The last time I've had dinner here it was amazing. We ordered two pizzas, one was chef's special with rocket send scallops and it was one if the most delicious meals I have ever had. All my friends seemed to enjoy their dishes too. The time before that I got a seafood risotto and I... More

This place had a really nice vibe and we were given a friendly welcome. It's casual with seating inside and out and was busy on a Wednesday night. All pizzas and pastas were on special but I had to have the duck confit. I'm glad I did as it was delicious. My OH had the paella and it was piled... More
