We popped to this beach bar on our first day since it was close to our sun loungers, the welcome we received was warm and friendly and easy going - the menu was put on our table and we were told "if you would like...food, no problem, if you don't want food, also no problem"... we were hooked - anywhere that isn't pushy is great in our book and so every day we walked from our sun loungers to order a Greek salad and a few beers! The guys were all so friendly and welcoming and on our first day back in Ireland having lunch, we said "this is definitely not Castello's"!!! We will definitely returnMore

Set to the west a little above the sandy beach is the Castello. Snack bar with rooms to let, family owner concern, very obliging, smiling helpful. Nothing spectacular, but well run clean establishment, great place for a snack lunch with a beer, taking in the...fabulous views.More

Great location overlooking the beautiful beach. Lots of drink and good, simple food (proper meals, not just snacks!) all served by very friendly and good-humoured staff. We even drove back down from Platanias to use Castello for the 3rd time during our stay on Crete!

The place has a traditional and simple design and thus, we thought that it wouldn't be something to remember. But we were impressed both from the food quality and the excellent and warm service. We ate a wonderful breakfast, I totally suggest scrambled eggs with...vegetables!! Finally, the WC were crystal clean. It is nice to sit at nice places like this one. 👍More

Castello Snackbar is located on a little hill at the western end of Pachia Ammos Beach. That means, that you have a beautiful view over the Beach and the Sea. We got good drinks at the bar.

Castello became a favourite lunch place for us, a short walk up from the beach. There was always a warm welcome, the food very good, the portions generous, the service quick and charming, and the view of the beach unparalleled. The toilets are very clean...with good facilities for the disabled. Would recommend this very highly to anybody.More

Excellent breakfast! Big omelletes! I loved the omellete with feta and tomato. Big portions and the tuna salad was full with tuna. I also liked me tea(mountain Cretan tea)

This is my second time visiting it. Came here three years ago. Sun sets behind the mountains and it's really nice to have the warmth on you in the evening. I really like the saganaki here. It's really different from the typical saganaki you can...find elsewhere. Prices are decent. I really enjoy sitting here and chatting while the sun sets and having some drinks and food.More

Excellent bar/restaurant for watching the sunset. Drinks good and we had both a nice salad and courgette balls one day and a simple breakfast on another. Staff very friendly. But best place in town for an uninterrupted sunset view.

Overlooking the long sandy beach, Castello is a great place to sit and watch the spectacular sunsets of Paleochora. The food is not spectacular, a snackbar rather than a resteraunt, but always very good, large servings, and very reasonably priced. Excellent staff.
