One of the best meals in Oz

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.

The other 2 people with me had the pasta with prawns, which was delicious and the good old fish and chips. The food overall was very tasty and reasonable in the portions. the wine list was good...

We wanted a place suitable for the whole family and carstros met our needs.

We walked in off the street and didn't realise Tuesday was "a bottle of wine at bottle shop prices" and the place was bumping. We waited a while to be seated and wasn't overly impressed by the way the disabled person in front of us was treated. Nor were we impressed with our bar table seating but after requesting a... More

Went back to the Chicago this time and this was as good a pizza as I have had. Thick base with wonderful toppings, perfectly cooked and wonderful sauces. Handy to most accommodation and great atmosphere for large groups.
