One of the best places to eat at on Utila. To start with the place is so pretty and peaceful. Very well done up and there’s been so much care and thought put into all the little details. The outdoor seating is perfect especially when...the weather is pleasant. The food is really worth the money. I will definitely visit again. Lucia, the owner also does fantastic and totally relaxing energy healing massages. Just the thing you need after many hours of diving.More

The owners made the place a very nice restaurant in a very nice setting off the beaten track that everybody on Utila should head for from time to time. ( even the toilets are nice and clean). You can enjoy the food without trying to...beat the music when you want to talk (like it is in other places on the island).The service is excellent- the owner and the staff , very friendly and they make you feel at home. Besides - the food is reason enough to come to this place. Fresh, delicious and always yummy. The meat comes from their own pigs and they grow other ingredients in order to prepare a healthy dish. What else do you want?!More

Wander up the hill to the beautiful El Castillo. It's easy to have an afternoon or evening slip away as you enjoy the wonderful El Castillo experience. It's a great spot in a beautiful Utilan garden complete with Caribbean breezes. Food grown and prepared with...love by Luzia, Pride, and their friendly staff. The menu is always changing, with an Austrian flair and of course, Caribbean style. And the wine menu is awesome. The family and staff always make you feel like you’re old friends. El Castillo is a can’t miss for any visit to Utila.More

The moment I set my eyes on Sunrise El Castillo Garden restaurant, I knew I found a slice of food paradise in Utila! I wasn’t disappointed! Salad and main course combo were delicious and meticulously prepared with fresh ingredients. Oh did I mention the baked...corn tortilla with salsa as appetizer? Yummm....all these while you’re enjoying the breeze that’s a precious commodity in the island on a hot and humid day!More

Grabbed 4 friends the other day and headed up to El Castillo Garden Restaurant for the local hog fry plate (the Vegetarian got the zucchini ravioli). Same great food, new fab location. Now they are even open for lunch - I'll be back to try...that!More
