We enjoyed a lovely meal at Castros last week as our last meal together after a family holiday in Noosa. We had 4 kids ranging from 15 to 5 and all were very well catered for. The kids meals are exceptional, they fed the kids first so we were able to enjoy our meal while they were being entertained by... More

We had to wait for a table as it was packed but we could see why. The food was to die for. I had the Beef fillet and it was perfect. It was also cheap wine night so we got a bottle of Rose for only $18.

Enjoyed our meal but not as good as I thought it would be from reviews. Wouldn't rush back. I found Surf Club a lot friendlier and nicer food.

Met up with friends for Steak Night. This restaurant was very good value for money. It is a casual dining venue with very friendly staff. The meals were generous in size. Very good wine selection. The cocktails walking by also looked fantastic!

We had a lovely dinner at Castro's the Confit Duck really is amazing. Make a booking though as we were really lucky to squeeze in this night, the restaurant was full to the brim. The service was good and the food great

Once again, well done guys. Everything flows ferfecty. From being seated, to the bill payment at the bar. Nightly specials are always a draw card also the wine specials which we enjoyed very much. To the extensive menu that never disappoints. Your staff are very attentive and the consistency in quality is what makes Castro's number 1 Thanks again.

casual and pleasant eating place in Coolum. Consistently good food and comfortable sup poundings, although outside is OK for summer, but not so much for the winter weeks....
