While there is quite a diverse menu, I can't resist the pizzas here. Only catch is that Castro's is one of the more popular restaurants in Coolum and you have to wait up to 45 minutes for takeaway but unlike so many, this is worth waiting for. The Chicago lamb pizza is wonderful.

Lovely food and a good selection. Staff were very friendly and there seemed to be a good selection of drinks at the bar.

I really enjoyed revisiting this old favourite restaurant and great to see it's as good as ever. The owner working it behind the cocktail bar is great and his staff are efficient and friendly. Food was good and it has a fun atmosphere. Do try it when next in Coolum.

A very cold night in Coolum but Castro's warmed us to our tummies and toes with their warm service and plenty of gas heaters. The menu is amazing and the wine list features some classy drops. The entree we had with the herb bread with baked artichoke dip, dukkah spices and olive oil was excellent. Who would have thought artichoke... More
