Dinner with kids and inlaws

We wanted a place suitable for the whole family and carstros met our needs. They had no problem changing the roasted duck dish on the adult menu (that our 9 year old wanted) to be served with fries instead of the more gourmet option on the menu. In saying that, they do actually have a good... read more

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.

We always used to get take away pizzas from Castros, our favourite being the wood-fired Castro's special but one day we went in for dinner, what a surprise, the food is just so good. My better half had the Wood-fired bone marrow with caramelized onion and ciabatta ... well ... she was in heaven and that was only a starter.... More

Loved the Chicago pizza last time but opted for a change - i.e the pork belly and scallop pizza with plum sauce. Excellent taste and flavour and very filling and satisfying. The pork belly didn't quite work, seemed overcooked but the scallops compensated. A very busy restaurant at the heart of most local accommodation but the small kitchen crew seems... More

We have been several times to Castro's and have always been very happy with everything. Last night was quite different. Wanting a light meal I opted for the scallops as a main. I was served six very plump delicious ones, accompanied by a jarring vinaigrette of capers and raisins. This spoiled the delicate flavour of the seafood. However, I realise... More

Castros was recommended by a 'local' - I think it wise to listen to the locals and boy were we pleasantly surprised - the pork belly and scallops pizza was AMAZING.
