Castro's is always on our list to go to when we don't feel like eating in. We have been going there for years now. The food is consistently good and the service is generally pretty good as well. They always seem great with children to which is a big plus. We often get food off the specials board and are... More

Quick service and tasty pizza. We ordered the Castro pizza (no olives) and although the staff we run off the feet the pizza was ready in about 10 minutes!!! Well done

We last visited Coolum Beach over two years ago and made sure this trip that we had dinner at Castro's again. It is very pleasing to find that nothing has changed here during that time - and I mean that in a very positive way. Restaurant was very busy (which is always an encouraging sign) but the service was great.... More

Have been to Castro's many times, and have recommended to other people. But dined there recently and had unfortunate dining experience. While all the meal where great size and good quality. We had found hair through our meals, my wife found 3 pieces of beard hair and I found several in mine. Looked to the kitchen and one of the... More

Always satisfies - struggle to choose between the beef and lamb but the Don Carlos lamb won - lovely thick crust with a wonderful lamb base and cheese that melted in your mouth.

Castro seems to have a theme for weeknights to bring in patrons. Tonight was steak night so, based on last night being booked out we booked a table to ensure we would get served. Now, please understand that I really do try to be positive about anywhere I visit or eat at. However, I find little to be positive about... More

Castro's never disappoints. They have a wide range of tasty food to suit all desires and it's always hard to choose which one of my favourites to have. The atmosphere is fun and the staff are friendly and you should definitely try one of the cocktails - especially the dessert Toblerone!!

Great meal with lovely wines, reasonably priced. A great casual dinner, and offers a smaller sized pizza and made a lactose free one up.
